How I Met Your Mother Episode 8.17 “The Ashtray” Recap

Reminiscent of The Burning Beekeeper from last season, this week’s episode tells a story from several points-of-view: that of Ted‘s, Robins, and then Lily‘s – all of which tell the story a little differently than before. During this, Barney is determined to insert himself into the story – since Ted called it a “crazy story,” which to Barney means that he must have been present because crazy stories are...

How I Met Your Mother Episode 8.15 “P.S., I Love You” Recaps the 90′s

This week on How I Met Your Mother, we got to see another episode that seems perfectly designed to reminds us all why we fell in love with the show to begin with. Of course, this reminder couldn’t come at a better time, now that we know they’ve officially been given a 9th [and supposedly "final" - but then again, the 8th was also supposed to be the "final"] season. “P.S. I Love You” will particularly appeal to your...

How I Met Your Mother: Episode 8.14 “Ring Up” Recap

But before we get to that,...

How I Met Your Mother: “Band or DJ?” Recap

This first episode back from the winter break deals with the initial planning stages of Barney and Robin’s wedding [which will take place on May 25, 2013!]. It also, as it turns out, is a great opportunity to address Ted’s feelings about the entire situation. Though Ted jumps right into helping plan the wedding – thoroughly irritating Lily, who had already named herself planner of the wedding – we later realize...

How I Met Your Mother – Episode 8.10 “The Over-Correction” Recap

Say what you want about this show – it’s definitely had some ups and downs already this season – but I have yet to see a TV show that can do continuity quite as well as How I Met Your Mother. This week brought back many of the classic gags: Ted’s red cowboy boots, the Intervention banner, the Playbook AND Bro-Code, and more that I can’t even think of right now because I’m reveling in...
