The newest episode of How I Met Your Mother was called “Three Days of Snow” — and I just couldn’t get into any of the stories. I thought Marshall and Lily’s storyline was kind of lame, and making it the focal point of the whole ep was just the wrong way to go. Yes, we get that they’re a saccharine couple and nauseatingly caught up in each other. We’ve known that all along, so why was it necessary to bring this stuff front and center? Those two were great in Season 1 and 2, but have had nothing to do since then. Giving them boring storylines like this doesn’t help one bit.
Ted and Barney’s stint behind the bar at MacLaren’s was pretty dumb too. I get how Barney would hit on college girls, but Ted? Really??? I don’t know, it didn’t seem like him at all.
Well, I guess the eps can’t all be awesome like last week when there was so much Robin/Barney stuff. Maybe the writers will pick up that thread again soon.
