Not Shelter Island!! :[

I'm from that area, and I've worked on Shelter Island.. so disappointed. I mean, I understand that they probably don't even film in NY, but it didn't even look like Shelter Island. And that's not the real kicker. The culture of Shelter Island portrayed in the film is not even close to the actual culture of the island. Its a beautiful, insular island with an incredibly close-knit year-round community. Nowhere on Shelter Island would you find anything like the hotel/resort where the wedding was supposed to take place. Just needed to get that off my chest.


That said, I thought this episode was necessary, but disappointing. It wasn't funny (and that's why I watch HIMYM), and nothing unpredictable happened.

SPOILERS***************************************************

Ted invited Robin to the wedding, stella freaked and told him to uninvite her, barney tried to convince him otherwise becuase he wanted to hook up with her again at the wedding. Ted was gonna call and tell her not to show, but barney offered and when he called he told her he'd see her when she got here. Ted went to Stella's ex to get the daughter for the wedding and accidentally invited him as well. Stella freaked out when she saw him and then got more upset when she saw robin. They had a fight and each went to their ex to tell them they're not allowed. Robin asked him not to get married and ted got mad. When robin was on the ferry back to the mainland she saw stella and her ex on the ferry, they were obviously back together and running away... sans daughter... o and after robin and ted fought she went to find barney for comfort and found him with a chick.
ps... someone needs to date stella's sister. she needs to stay for a while... love her!!

Dude, what does it matter if they portrait the island exactly as it is, this is suposed to be a funny show, therefore they have to create scenes where that happens. No one truly believed that was real (at least no one that had a brain), come on dude, get over it, and yes, this episode wasn't that funny but I really enjoyed it and to be honest I don't think it was all that predictable, yeah, everyone knew they wouldn't get married, we also know since episode one that Robin and Ted won't be together but that didn't ruined the story. I have to be honest, I would have never guessed Stella was going to run away before the wedding with her ex-husband, if you did, my congrats, you are one amazing dude... (irony)
Overall, I think your comment was unnecessary and slightly idiotic.

@Oriyon You took the words right out of my mouth. When I'm watching a show and they mention a place, I'm not thinking "OMG that must really be what its like there". Thats ridiculous, please take your whining elsewhere...
