HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER “Unfinished” Review

HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER “Unfinished” Season 6 Episode 3 – What did you think of tonight’s episode of How I Met Your Mother? All I can say is that I hope Marshall brings back his funk band – those guys rocked! Let’s break down tonight’s episode by character:

Ted: So Ted finally gets the opportunity to design the new GNB building and is then conflicted about if he should accept the offer. Do you think he did the right thing? Even though he had a great thing going at his teaching job, I think he always would have regretted it if he didn’t accept the offer. Plus he would have broken Barney’s ‘yes’ streak.

Lily: This episode reminded me of why Lily is so damn awesome. “WHERE’S THE POOP ROBIN!?”. That was so classic. Lily is great because she always knows what’s best for her friends. Like last season when she forced Robin and Barney to have ‘the talk’, she helped Robin do the right thing in “Unfinished” by getting her to remove Don’s phone number.

Marshall: So as I said before, I love, love, loved Marshall’s funk band. “How do you plead?” “Funky!”. Marshall turned out to be an amazing wing man for Barney in his scheme to get Ted’s design. I didn’t see that coming did you? At first I thought it was a rotten move by Marshall and then I realized he was doing it to help Ted have no regrets.

Barney: Barney was a little creepy tonight. He seems to only know one way to get what he wants, which is the process he uses to get a girl. I loved how Ted got him back in the end and got a dinner date out of him.

Robin: Robin has been unlucky in love lately. First things don’t work out with Barney and just when she get’s over him and starts something up with Don, he leaves her. I’d like to see Robin find some happiness, don’t you? I feel like a lot of emphasis is put on Ted meeting somebody special, but I’m rooting for Robin as well.

Overall I thought it was a fun episode and it was neat to see the group’s unfinished business (Karate, Funk Band, Architecture). It looks like big things are ahead for Ted and now that Robin is over Don perhaps that opens up the possibilities for her too. Something the show hasn’t touched on in a while is Marshall and Lily’s plan to have a baby. Do you think we’ll hear more about that next week? Leave me a comment and let me know what you thought of tonight’s episode of How I Met Your Mother, “Unfinished”!
