HIMYM 5×11 — “Last Cigarette Ever”: While there were some funny gags in this ep, I couldn’t really get into it. Maybe it had something to do with the fact that none of these characters have ever been shown smoking before. Yes, there have been a couple of references to cigarettes here and there, but not to the extent where they went up on the roof to smoke or where Robin had cigs dangling out of her mouth at all hours of the day.
I didn’t like the Don stuff, either. I know he’s going to be a recurring character, but so far I don’t see anything about him that leads me to believe he’ll add an extra dimension to the show. Plus, he’s such an utter goofball that I don’t know what Robin could possible see in him, dating-wise. Whatever.
The good parts were the completely smoke-filled McLaren’s where you couldn’t even see the people sitting at the same booth, and the final scene with all the hints about what’s going to happen to these people next. Other than that, this episodes felt off.
