I have to say, "Little Minnesota" was one of my favorite episodes of the season. OK, ok so I know I say that every week - but this time I mean it.
I think one of my favorite parts about it was the focus on Robin for a change. Not that I have anything against Ted, or Marshall when he was going through hard times, but I think that Robin has been seriously neglected this season and it's about time we saw more of her! Her character has such funny potential that it's a shame that she gets left out of the spotlight most of the time.
I also enjoyed the Robin-Marshall bonding time. Again, it's not something we see very often. I kinda liked the fact that they were able to mix the characters up a bit and break them apart from the group and branch out to DIFFERENT BARS! It was nice to have a change of scenery!
Some stellar Canada jokes, and an excellent karaoke rendition of "Let's Go To The Mall" made the episode for me!
And also Barney's Weird Al-styled Christmas Carols all suggesting the raunchy things that he wants to do to Ted's sister were a definite highlight.
Rock on How I Met Your Mother!
