'How I Met Your Mother' Season 5, Episode 17 - 'Of Course' Recap


Let's see ... this week, we got Ted in the future telling his kids the story that Barney told a police officer after he'd been pulled out of the Hudson River. So did we get Barney's version of events, or the version Ted might remember from his own role?


I'm going with this being Barney's version of events, because it's the only way I can justify the way in which Ted described to Barney the "super-date." All in all, there were several moments that made me smile, but I wasn't laughing as hard as I usually do during an episode of 'How I Met Your Mother.'


However, I'll forgive the episode that because it did entertain me and more importantly-- it gave us all some much needed closure!


Going into this episode, I had completely forgotten that Jennifer Lopez was scheduled to appear. It's a little surprising that they'd have a big guest star so shortly after Carrie Underwood's appearance last week, but there's no fear yet that 'HIMYM' is headed down the same path 'Will & Grace' did with their parade of celebrity guest stars. 'Mother' is still bringing clever and creative storytelling.
