'How I Met Your Mother': Amanda Peet plays the Robin Scherbatsky drinking game


I simply don't know what Marshall was thinking on tonight's "How I Met Your Mother." There are some things married men just shouldn't do, and hiding the sex of a co-worker who takes her shirt off and dances on tables is one of them.


Marshall may only have referred to the new layer at GNB, Jenkins, as "Jenkins," and Lily certainly believed Jenkins to be a he, but Jenkins wasn't a he, was Jenkins? No, Jenkins was much more of a she, a she who looked and sounded a whole lot like Amanda Peet. That made Marshall's stories about Jenkins take on a whole new - and not particularly good for Marshall - light. Also, it made Barney's wanting to have sex with Jenkins much more understandable.


As Marshall himself noted, he didn't correct Lily when Lily assumed that Jenkins was a he. As a married man, I can tell you that you don't do that sort of thing, if you do you are just asking to go down a bad road. First off, the stories Marshall told about Jenkins (except maybe the peeing out the window one) were probably silly if Jenkins was an overweight man, but potentially hot if Jenkins were an attractive woman. The assumption anyone would make about Marshall hiding Jenkins' sex has to come down to Marshall being a little bit smitten with Jenkins. The show didn't really travel down that road tonight, and I'm convinced that Marshall would never, ever, cheat on Lily, but hiding Jenkins' sex had the feeling of wrongness about it.
