How I Met Your Mother: Caress

“The Slutty Pumpkin Returns”

We loved the Bejeweled Blitz reference! We don’t know if you guys know this, but we are insanely good at BB. We get scores in the 800,000s every week, and our highest scores are in the upper mid-900,000s. We will crack a million, if it’s the last thing we do. We are fighting to be the first of the two bloggers to do so. But we have lives too, we swear.

Katie Holmes guest starred this week, and she was pretty funny. It might have been her part. She looks older. She’s starting to look like a grown up. Laugh at her marriage with Tom Cruise all you want, but his midlife-crisis marriage has lasted longer than most celebrity marriage (hey there Kim Kardashian). Maybe it’s really love. We liked the younger version of Ted who made a contract with himself to sleep with every girl who wanted to sleep with him. Wow, that was unwise, younger Ted.

Ted was an idiot in this episode. He’s an idiot in every episode, actually. But he’s the other blogger’s soulmate, so this blogger should shut up now. We found it interesting that Robin was offended that Ted slept with a girl he had no feelings for. So is that the rule now? When is it socially acceptable to bang someone? First it was marriage, then it was engagement, then it was intending to get married, then it was being together for three months, then it was three dates, then it was any monogamous relationship, and now it is having at least a sliver of “feeling” for the person. What’s next? Liking that person’s clothes?

Robin and Barney are so meant to be. They are both Canadian. Barney is STILL wearing the duckie tie. Barney’s Canadian accent sounds a little too Scottish. Robin’s was great though. This episode was Norah-free, and we weren’t missing her much. Lily and Marshall spent the episode in the suburbs for Halloween. That reminds us of Happy Endings, and that’s not good for How I Met Your Mother right now. Happy Endings did that plotline the right way, and it was hilarious. Here, it was just a lacking. The Canada and Slutty Pumpkin stuff was pretty funny, so we enjoyed the episode, overall.

Episode grade: B-


  1. Your title for this recap induced some audible laughter. "Caress"!! I liked in the episode when they showed Katie Holmes' perspective, and she was all, "Does he not *get* sarcasm?" This show works best for me when Ted is made to look like a fool.

    You're right about 'Happy Endings'' brush with the suburbs episode, btw.

  2. If you like when Ted is made to look like a fool, you must love just about every episode, haha.
