Haha...tell us why you think so! You know, I think the episode had all of the components to be a HIMYM great - flashbacks, companion websites, etc. - but I didn't entirely love it myself, though I wouldn't call it the worst episode ever. Why did you hate it so much?

I actually agree. Only because of the missed chance for an intervention.

I think it was a awesome episode! I was happy Ted was not in it, lets face it he's a pretty annoying character nowadays. Though I will admit I dislike the fact that Barney is not single anymore, him being a man whore added so many more jokes and situations to the show. Lets hope he breaks up for a little bit, make it Legendary again.

I strongly agree! EVERYTHING was wrong with it. The couples-dating-couples analogy had NO basis in reality, so every joke about it (90% of the jokes in the episode) was just a weak pun. I think by the end of the episode they'd embraced that the parallel made no sense, but that doesn't redeem it! Barney and Robin were totally out of character in the second half, and in fact everyone's characterization was pretty flat. Furthermore, I'm sick of Lily (and Marshall) dictating how Robin and Barney should behave as a couple. I realize it's a sitcom, but HIMYM is usually MUCH better than this; I've always admired its consistent and in-depth characterization and jokes that push absurdity without totally snapping reality in half.
The only good parts were the two poem bits!

It was not that bad although it wasn't the best HIMYM episode, I laughed out loud alot so in my book that means it wasnt terrible.

I actually disagree. This is, by far, the best episode this season (even if we are still only 4 episodes in).
Barney and Robin were NOT acting out of character. They were in their usual, aloof selves, but when Lily and Marshall found new friends, then all of a sudden, the grass seemed greener for Barney and Robin. That's actually classic.
And I did bust a gut laughing at Ted's poem- "the end of the sexless innkeeper".
I don't mind if Ted is not in this particular episode. His presence was prevalent throughout anyway, specially towards the end, as aforementioned, the poem (and Barney's reaction, priceless). The five main characters, are after all, equally important. And even if the show's premise is primarily about how Ted will meet his future wife (which is still years from now, since the show is such a success), it has evolved into a story of the lives of the 5 main protagonists.
Oh, and, it's fairly obvious, "worsed" is hardly a typo error.

Yap , ever since i have watched these shows on tvfull , i have been deeply attracitve by the 5 characters there . Barney is a playboy with an easily broken heart, while Robin is so awesome , with nothing to be afraid of . Ted is my favorite , without him , i would not even bother to watch the show
