HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER "Of Course" Review - Season 5, Episode 17

HIMYM does a lot of stunt casting and usually I find it distracting, but in this episode I think it worked. They needed someone like Jennifer Lopez to play the self-help author bent on destroying Barney in order for it to be convincing. I can't see Barney throwing himself in the river for just any sexy lady. I thought JLo's character was funny and I loved the title of her book: "Of Course You're Still Single Take a Look at Yourself You Dumb Slut."

I have to say that I came away from this episode convinced that Barney and Robin should be together! I mean, he must really care about her if he barfed in his stormtrooper helmet after finding out how much he hurt her. Not only that, he also turned downJennifer Lopez as she practically threw herself at him. I think Barney totally redeemed himself and also showed a softer, more serious side that we rarely see. I was really disappointed that it was Don on the superdate with Robin, instead of Barney.
