Puppies that are not on fire

How I Met Your Mother - "Field Trip"

Ern didn’t even like Ewoks when we were kids. Leeard did (and still does). Barney’s theory was hilarious though. We loved the Friday Night Lights reference, although it was only the beginning of season two that we didn’t like, and all of the murder portion.

Marshall and Lily: Marshall’s boss has given up on saving the world, but Marshall gives him a pep talk, and they come down a little harder on a big company that killed some fish. It was a victory for humankind. And fish. Future Ted lets us know that Marshall and his boss actually will save the world. Awww, how optimistic and unlikely! If lawyers could save the world, Ern would want to be one more.

Ted: Tries to inspire someone in his class to become an architect, so he takes the class (and a random German family that tagged along) on a field trip. They go to GNB and meet Barney. We really could have stood to see more of Barney’s presentations. Stupid spoilsport Ted. Then they go to Ted’s apartment. Then they end at the bar. Great field trip, Ted. He inspires no one. We liked the thing where Barney and Ted used the class as a focus group to settle their old disputes. We could have seen more of that. And there could have been better debates. Making fun of Twilight is old guys. We’ve been doing it since before the first movie came out.

Barney: Worries that Nora is 37 and lied about her age. She didn’t. Barney is still willing to accept her if she is old, because of how good she looks, so this is romantic progress for Barney.

Robin: Dating her therapist from the last episode. Everyone thinks this is a mistake, but we say that people should mostly shut up about the people that their friends and family choose to date.

They are the ones who have to root them. In the throes of love, they won’t change their mind. If they are with addicts or being abused or something, that’s another story. We actually thought her solution took care of the inherent problem in dating your therapist. First of all, she wasn’t in therapy with him for that long (two hours), and second of all, she took away the power and authority façade by having him whine about his mom. It’s also nice to have someone shake up the potential Ted/Barney/Robin thing.

Episode grade: B-
