AS much as I'd like to be impressed that they pulled this off (and they did..) I'm also more than a bit miffed they put us through it.

You have to see it. They are meant for one another. Robin looked hot under that yellow umbrella.

Amen. Patrice was quite the trooper. I laughed when they showed the fight out on Barney's balcony from their point of view. "Your friends have no boundaries!"

Near the end, I thought Barney would do a switcharoo.

I really really liked it. I like how it brought something more to the last few episodes and actually committed to something down this storyline. Legen...

A discussion on this weeks episode by default will contain spoilers for this episode and previous, but can not contain spoilers for future episodes, or information from outside the show itself.

It's not a spoiler if it's part of this weeks broadcast episode.

No, the show has been terrible recently. That's the show's fault, not ours.

On balance this was a really good hour, no argument. The best the show has done in a while. It was somewhat padded with all the dumb Lilly and Marshall stuff -- good grief, they are out of the house without Marvin all the time -- but the rest of it was fairly touching, and, importantly, funny.

No it hasn't been terrible at all. The only reason why lat night paid off is because the characters are well developed and feel real to us.

It was really TWO episodes. Sheesh.

The jinx stuff was classic.

Oh, and, suck it.

I'm with Tony. The show has been getting a bad rap. Last weeks episode was great. This weeks double episode was awesome. I just knew Barney was watching them in the apt. in last weeks episode, but I didn't predict he actually burned the playbook. Thought for sure that was a trick.

Ok, 2 episodes in a row that were good. What is going on here? Just when I am going though the motions waiting for the show to end they tease me with good episodes.

If I recall the rules of Jinx correctly, only the people that said they same thing at the same time can Jinx each other. I don't think an observer can throw out a Jinx.

Because he was glad those two would finally shut up. He spent the whole drive up listening to them talk about Marvin this, Marvin that, and was looking forward to a quiet relaxing drive home.

I knew what was coming about twenty minutes until the end. So I wasn't terribly surprised.

It was a nice ending. If they try to make an effort to will they or won't they with Barney and Robin in the future it'll really piss me off.

That would be pretty weird since we've already seen their wedding.

Only on camera, off camera, she and Marshall just "blah Marvin blah blah Marvin blah blah blah Marvin". Ted had enough so left them jinxed for the drive home. :P

I was hoping you would recognize my post as screaming in Robin's voice and not think I was actually screaming at you.

Oh the $$$ for another season can make writers do all sorts of things, the timeline of the wedding gets kicked down the road with the umbrella and in the meantime Ted reverts to wanting Robin again and Barney keeps being legendary.
