Really solid, really funny episode overall. However, I'm not sure if it was up to my standards for the 150th episode. I mean, we all remember "Girls vs Suits" as being a total slam dunk. And while this would have been just that if it were any other episode, I'm not sure if it worked for being the 150th. Either way, really funny. Kept me laughing.
So, I'll start with the Marshall and Lily part. This was REALLY damn funny. I couldn't quit laughing. The night lighting and how it was set up like a game horror movie really cracked me up. Still. while HIMYM is famous for rehashing old ideas, I feel like this way have been a little too similar to what they did last week with the Enigmas of the Mystical. Either way, great segment. Super funny. I'm also wondering how long Lily's dad will be sticking around. In all honesty, I don't want him around for that long. And I'm also a little confused by B&T who said this season would be focusing more on the group, since we lost that a little last season with Zoey and the Captain. Either way, I'm sure they'll figure it out.
Next up...Robin and Kevin. I know I said I wouldn't complain anymore, but this whole heartedly pissed me off. I mean, Barney hooks up with Robin and Kevin is just 'la dee da...whatever'. I'm sorry but thats just not realistic. And the ending just killed me. Seriously. I was in the middle of laughing, and then that Robin-Kevin moment came and the smile just faded off my face. I just feel like Kevin should be gone from the cast by now. Because as the ending showed, he isn't...and never will be...part of the group.
I'll finish this off with Barney, Ted, and 'the other gang'. This was a hilarious segment, if I do say so myself. I loved it. The return of stripper lily was very funny, and other Marshall was hilarious. I also feel like this is the creators way of saying that the group will remain the same in some aspect because this is what would become of it without all of them. And B&T have clearly stated they do have a solution to Lily and Marshall having a baby and perhaps not always being part of the group. They also said they might not be staying on Long Island...perhaps because Lilys dad gets that house?
-How I Met Your Barney
-How I Met Your Mother, the Russian, other gang version.
-There were many more, but because I don't take notes, and I haven't rewatched it yet, I cannot remember
AND COMING UP SOMETIME IN THE NEAR FUTURE...
No clue. Doesn't say on Wikipedia, so I'll get back to you.
