How I Met Your Mother - OAD 9/30/2013 - "Last Time in New York"

OK, what was up with all the purple? What am I missing or forgetting?

This was a meh episode to me. Not all that much funny. The sword fight was REALLY silly (and dangerous!!) The best scene was when Robin and Barney bump into Barney's bro hiding from the old people too.

It had some okay ideas, but execution was kind of flat. Like the Patinkin thing was an okay chuckle, but not worth what they put into it.

And I was disappointed no Mother. Hopefully they get us back there quickly.

Another filler episode. Move the story along, please.

It was more than that -- or at least, it wasn't because of the Marshall piece of the plot. There was way too much purple for that. There were characters in every single scene prominently wearing purple, and the set decoration leaned heavily purple, too.

I was hoping that Mandy would have made an uncredited appearance...

We thought it was a good episode. It is moving the story along - just very slowly (after all, they will all need to sleep at some point, right? Or is this going to be like 24)

I thought it was an okay episode. I was someone who struggled to find reasons to keep watching last season but so far I have enjoyed this season.

Ah, I didn't notice that. I have no idea why that would be. I doubt it's an in-show reason; maybe the art director just likes purple.

All we know is that this whole season is supposed to take place at the wedding weekend. 51 hours until the wedding, plus the wedding itself, and 19 more episodes means there will be plenty of time for sleeping.
