This episode was about as "meta" as an episode can get. And it was meta in a very funny way. However, I wonder if the release of the trailer for the movie-within-an-episode, 'The Wedding Bride,' last week ruined the fun of things a little bit.
Sure, we didn't have to publish it. But, Fox studios not only sent it to us, but the clip was released to other sites as well as Facebook. They wanted everyone to see this trailer, with Chris Kattan playing "douchebag" Jed Mosley. But knowing it was out there, and what Tony's view of how the whole Ted/Stella thing went down, before the episode aired kept it from being surprising. In fact, at some point the meta-ness of the episode became less funny and got slightly worn down.
By the end, I was wondering why we weren't exploring Marshall's super-niceness more or seeing more of the normally wonderful Judy Greer.
