How I Met Your Mother reached its peak amount of viewers since the beginning of the season in last week's "The Window". Taking a break from relationship talk this week, they instead focuses on each member of the group's battle with cigarettes.
When Marshall has a hard time at work, he decides to join Robin for a cigarette and ends up dragging the rest of the group down with him.
Meanwhile, Robin tries her best to ensure her career moves to the next level.
For the most part, this is one of those fun little irrelevant episodes that HIMYM do oh so well.This episode also sees them do their bit to turn those impressionable viewers away from smoking, especially with Lily's hilarious smoking voice!
Considering we had such a great Thansgiving show, it was a little bit disappointing not to see something a little bit more festive from the HIMYM team in this, the last episode before the New Year.
This week's episode was probably more for die hard HIMYM fans than those more preoccupied with finding out who the mother really is.
The next episode of How I Met Your Mother airs on January 11, 2010
