Monday, October 5, 2009: How I Met Your Mother

Monday, October 5, 2009: <i>How I Met Your Mother</i>

Are you happy now, all you Barney/Robin shippers? Robin and Barney have declared themselves boyfriend and girlfriend, which automatically makes their relationship twice as interesting as Ted's never-ending search for a mother. (Although the upcoming 100th episode may liven things up in that arena.) So, in an attempt to make Ted relevant again, the writers have him teaching Barney how to date his ex-girlfriend. Which seems like asking asking the captain of the Titanic how to navigate the North Atlantic, but whatever.

It seems Robin is suspicious of Barney's long absences, and assumes he's cheating on her, but in fact he's trying to learn how to make her happy. (Lesson one: learn to deal with her inconsistently written attitude toward strip clubs.) The episode looks pretty fantastic, with Ted actually standing at the front of a classroom (is it his Columbia digs? Not sure) with a slideshow of Robin's moods and expressions. NPH plays the class clown in the otherwise empty lecture hall, which makes it harder for him to blame his outbursts on others. He even Twitters about Ted while class is in session, and Twitter jokes are still funny to me, just because they haven't gotten old yet, as they inevitably will.

HIMYM airs tonight at 8/7C on CBS. For more options, check out our Week in Preview!
