    OK, I'll start it.

    Wow that was bad. Not a laugh whatsoever. And I'm one of the ones that doesn't care about the mother. Wouldn't have cared if she were introduced in the last 30 seconds of the last show. I've been in it for the laughs but this episode was done...Poorly. :p

    The only part that got a chuckle out of me was when the Knight was frantically waving 'no!'.

    It is obvious this is an add-on season, and they are just filling space. It is frustrating.

    You know one thing that can help an add-on season for a show in it's 9th season.

    A new character.

    WTF?

    The Ghost Knight was the only funny part of the EP. I'm going to appropriate the 'He chose poorly' for my own use. :) After the 5-6th time of the dubbed voice for Lily, 30 second fwded to the next scene.

    I still enjoy the show.

    My first reaction to the priest or whatever he is -- who is that guy, he does the voiceover for EVERYTHING. Then, after looking at the guest stars for the episode while I was in the middle of the episode --- WOW, Edward Hermann got really old!!!

    I love Anna Camp so I'm good with this episode.

    And I thought she had a funny delivery when she was mounting Ted and sobbing.

    Whenever I get annoyed with the show, I like to remember how terrible some of season 9/10 of Friends was, with over the top caricatures, stupid guest stars, 'expanded' episodes. It helps me put in perspective how hard it is to do a long running sitcom. And then I can watch and simply enjoy those parts that are funny just by themselves, without comparing it to past events.

    Anna Camp was great in this. Hot AND funny. Barney and Robin got called out for being horrible people. The Lily voiceover was funny, at least for a little while.

    I may be in the minority, but I thought Camp was terrible. She looked like she was struggling to act upset.

    Barney and Robin did get called out, but not in a way they were aware of. I empathize with Edward Hermann's character. :)

    I did like switching Lilly's voice for Daphne; that was a very HIMYM joke, and it was funny. And I liked the idea of Marshall and Lilly playing Barney and Robin and vice versa in the flashbacks. I would have enjoyed a little more of that.

    Having the whole season take place on the wedding weekend at the inn is really messing with time. Barney has changed suits three times now, and only a few hours of the first day have gone by.

    Everything is still purple, but a bit less than in previous weeks.

    Wow. Harsh words. I thought it was one of the better episodes of the season. I enjoyed Marshall trying out his talk, and I enjoyed a couple of other moments.

    Too bad young Marshall wasn't eating a sandwich. That would have been a nice callback.

    For a season that started off with such promise the last few episodes were pretty bad. I did like the ghost knight. That was the best part. I'm not quite sure where I know Anna Camp (I guess that's the actress who played the sobber) but I thought she was trying too hard to hysterically crying. I even remarked to my wife that that cry sounded so fake.

    Was Robin this much of a self absorbed jerk early in the series? She's really turned into that and I'm not liking it. She did look REALLY good in that white dress though.

    I also liked the Knight. I also liked that Robin and Barney owned up to their messy history. It's not like them to be ashamed of that. It was a total sitcom cliche that this ended up killing Edward Hermann's character, though. The rest of the episode, with Ted constantly getting stuck with the blonde, was pretty lame.

    Anna Camp was in True Blood. Plus a lot of other guest appearances.

    The laugh track when the reverend died was a little much.

    I enjoyed Lilly's dubbed voice.

    Did it seem to anyone else like the reverend's office was on the grounds of the Farhampton inn?

    Anna Camp seemed to have trouble with comedic crying.

    In addition to the other shows mentioned, she was on the first season of The Mindy Project. Yes, I watch that show. Say what you want, but this season it's been funnier than HIMYM this season.

    In addition to Reverend Newlin's (ex)wife in True Blood and the other appearances mentioned here, she was Pam's maid of honor on The Office.

    Anna Camp is one of those actresses where I immediately recognize her, but then have no idea where I know her from.


    The Mindy Project is one of the best comedies on TV right now.
