How I Met Your Mother - Now We Are Even

What Happened - Ted is enjoying living alone, but Barney keeps trying to get him to stay out and party with him. Barney wants to make each night crazy and memorable by doing outrageous things, sometimes involving a camel. Barney makes sure everyone knows and remembers that he is awesome enough to be dating a stripper. In reality, Barney is feeling jealous because he is in love with Quinn and doesn't like that she is a stripper. Robin is upset that she still isn’t famous, even though she is a newscaster. When she gets stuck in a helicopter with a pilot having a stroke, Robin has to land the helicopter. This makes her famous. Lily has a sex dream and Marshall is determined to find out who was in it. It turns out to be Ranjit, the limo driver. Marshall freaks out for a little bit but then realizes that Lily is having dreams about good fathers. This isn’t exactly the real trend of Lily’s dreams, but it’s enough to get this dumb storyline behind them.

Comments - Man, that episode was rough. Ted’s reaction to living alone was Ern’s exact reaction. Living alone is the BEST. THING. EVER. Ern and Leeard have roommates for financial reasons, but living alone cuts out all the inconveniences that tend to prevent you from relaxing fully at home. The opening where Ted describes living alone was the high point of this episode. It was all downhill from there. There wasn't anything funny and the plot did not advance at all. Also, it feels like Lily has been pregnant forever. Of course they are probably saving the birth for the finale or at least later in the season.

Barney’s plan to make every night legendary would be a great plan for the show to adopt. Yet, this show has had a few un-legendary episodes this season that would make Norbit look like prime comedy. Well…ok…maybe not that bad. But still! We will be complaining about how much better the first four seasons were than the later seasons for a while. This episode was particularly bad. Even when this show isn’t funny, it’s usually not a chore to watch. Last night’s was hard to get through. It was kind of cool when Robin landed the helicopter, just because we love when she is bad ass. Ted in a dress is very fitting. Ted in a dress was referenced earlier in "The Mermaid Theory," so here is our full story on that one. Joy.

Does anyone but Barney like Quinn at this point? It looks like he is going to end up marrying this girl, but we aren't nuts about her. She's a fitting woman for Barney, but we preferred him with Robin. Or, hell, even Nora.

Episode grade: D+


  1. Heh. I also see the positivity in living alone. If you feel lonely, you can just get a dog to be your buddy. No arguing with dogs...:)

    1. I don't really get lonely, but if you do, you can just call someone and hang out with them. Also, dogs are the best. I can't wait to get mine back from my mom and live with it next year.
