How I Met Your Mother - Glitter recap/review

At the gang's favorite bar/eating spot, Barney showed up wearing his usual suit, but he also had a flower pinned to it (a boutonniere, which, according to Barney means “bootie is near” in French). Barney thought it would help him get laid, and Robin mocked him. Barney got revenge by showing the gang another Robin Sparkles video. This one, sadly, wasn’t a music video, so it wasn’t as funny as the other videos. It was an episode of a Canadian kids’ show called Space Teens. Robin's co-star and old best friend was Jessica Glitter, played by guest star Nicole Scherzinger (who we like).

The TV show had lots of sexual innuendo (for example, the girls had two pet beavers, prompting them to talk and sing about their beavers). This is about as funny as when people point out the dirty or racist stuff in Disney movies. Mildly funny, but not that funny, and a little immature. It’s not that clever. One of us could have written the jokes in this episode.

Ted tried to prove that BFFs are really forever, so he called an annoying friend from high school called “Punchy.” Guess why. Anyway, Punchy appeared in New York, punched people, slept on Ted’s couch, annoyed everyone, showed people his scrotum, and mooned over Times Square. The Punchy stuff was pretty funny, actually. Ted finally got him to leave. Punchy asked Ted to be the best man at his wedding and Ted accepted. Is this the wedding from the season premiere? If so, what a letdown. Seriously, PUNCHY’S wedding? Ugh.

Another thing that was too bad: they managed to make even Nicole’s exciting guest star moment about Lily’s stupid impending pregnancy. Jessica got pregnant and ditched Robin. Lily thought Robin had ditched Jessica because Robin hates kids. Robin and Lily fought, were temporarily not friends, but then they made up in the end. The episode ended with Robin and Jessica reuniting at the Hoser Hut to sing a duet of “The Beaver Song: Two Beavers are Better than One.”

Oh and for the record, our favorite episodes of this show are the following:
-The one where Marshall has to say goodbye to his nasty car.
-The one where Barney does a one-man show to torment everybody and Marshall slaps him.
The first Robin Sparkles video was a great moment for this show too. We like the history of these characters and their quirks cropping up. There should be more of this, but this show is trying to recycle existing jokes and just play off its past successes. Come up with something else, show.

This episode's grade: Somewhere between a C+ and a B-.
