OH...MY...GOD...they're six minutes into the date, Ted's probably already told her that he loves her!

Still kinda feels like they're trying to pack a few episodes worth of material into one, but another good ep I felt. Loved, loved, loved the premise with Ted and trying to go on a date without looking someone up.

Kal Penn is not working for me at all. At least the first few episodes Zoe was in she was cool and cute n shit. This is just contrived.

Meh. I agree - Kal Penn just doesn't fit.

I will admit to laughing when the "Murder Train" song popped up. I always like that nod to the first season (I think? It's Robin's ex-boyfriend Simon's song that he wanted her to play on her show), and always giggle whenever they play it.

Yeah it was. Anyone else notice Robin's dad is not the same actor as before?

I noticed that too - it used to be that dude who was on that soap opera(s). Specific, I know.

I just google imaged "victor soap opera." Yeah, it was Eric Braeden (he played Victor on Y&R). I used to watch that show all the time when I was in university.

ETA - I just looked on Wikipedia, and saw this:

Quote:
On December 17, 2010, Neil Patrick Harris announced via Twitter that Braeden would not be reprising his role on How I Met Your Mother. In his tweet, Harris called Braeden a "D-Bag" for deciding on very short notice not to film a scheduled cameo for the program. Harris claimed that Braeden said the role was not substantial enough for Braeden to appear.[5] According to Harris, the part has been recast with Ray Wise.
Uhoh.

Plenty of laughs this week I thought. Ted yelling out everyone's names, Barney's euphemisms for sex, Weird Al, Marshall's dad...

Again, plenty of laughs. Ted as a 15yo, Barney/Canada, Marshall & Lily's sexual innuendo...

"I'm coming! ... To terms with this decision!"

Excellent episode tonight - probably the best all season so far. LOVED the return of the slap bet. Robin's talk about the hurricane weather being normal for "the 'Couv" was hilarious (although very misguided). Yes, it rains a ridiculous amount here, but not like THAT. I was a bit annoyed at what I at first thought were continuity errors (Lily drinking during the hurricane when I thought she was already pregnant), but at least they answered that by saying the baby was conceived in the bathtub. And yay for Barney/Robin at the end!!

Nice to see the show begin to show glimpses of why I loved it so much back in the first few seasons.

ETA - okay, wait. Now I'm really confused about the timeline of Lily's pregnancy. She was pregnant during the season finale. When the hell did that episode take place - late spring/early summer? Hurricane Irene wasn't until August. Shouldn't she have already been pregnant by then?

There's a reason I shouldn't be posting online at this hour and confusing the hell out of myself. Did a quick search and found out that the season finale from last season actually took place in September - they'd skipped ahead to that date. The timeline is fine - I'm just the one who was supremely confused for a good half hour or so. Lily DID get pregnant during the hurricane - the "food poisoning" and reveal that she was pregnant was in September (despite the episode actually airing in May).

Damn, I feel stupid. Mental note to self - go to bed at a decent hour and don't try to think too hard (or at ALL) at 12:30am.

I saw your post previewed on my iphone, so I wonder what I would have thought of the ep if I hadn't seen it, but yeah, I loved it. A lot of great moments.

Marshall is hilarious when he goes all weird, he's been great all season but turning into Edgar Allen Poe and then getting hurt at the end anyway was a pissa

Barney sloping in his chair so they couldn't see the tie

Can I take it off? You... can... not. With a k. Little tie humour there.

What's with the safety boner?

HURRICANE ERIKSEN!!

There was a massive continuity flaw though - the building that Barney climbed onto to save that kid - that's the "conference call" area from the GNB building.
