HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER “Natural History” Review

HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER “Natural History” Season 6 Episode 8 – What did you think of tonight’s episode? Does anybody else wish they named this episode “Wieners and Gonads”? Anyway, let’s talk about one of the best episodes of HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER to date.

Barney and Robin: So how cute were these two tonight? They are so getting back together. Some of my favorite moments of their little touch game was when Robin opened a bottle with a stuffed tiger and Barney dressed up as a pharaoh. It was sad that Barney had to find out who his father was in such an unexpected way. I’m hoping he’ll reconnect with his dad soon – I’m curious to see who uncle Jerry is.

Ted and Zoey: Ted stole the show for me tonight. His hijinx at the whisper spot was way too funny. I have no idea what to make of Zoey. First, we find out she is a fat cat’s trophy wife (I did NOT see that coming). Then, she played Ted so easily that it made me feel like she belongs in the mean-girl clique instead of the artistic hippy group. For a brief minute I was wondering if she is the mother? She’s married to a guy that calls himself “The Captain” and wears red pants – that alone has to put the marriage on their rocks. She also seems to have something for Ted. However, we know that the mom is the roommate of his ex, so for Zoey to be the mom she would of had to of married The Capatin somewhat recently. What do you think? Do you think we can put Zoey on our list of possibilities for the mom?

Marshall and Lily: Normally Lily is the one with all the sense, but I did not agree with her tonight. Marshall is such an awesome husband to her, who does she think she is!? Lol. Okay, that is harsh but I was siding with Marshall tonight – what about you? In my opinion you can’t fault a man for wanting to be a good provider to his wife and (future) kids. However, it doesn’t sound like Marshall is going to be at Goliath forever – I wonder what his next career move will be and if it will happen soon?

I can’t think of a single thing I didn’t like about tonight’s episode of How I Met Your Mother. It’s going on my ever growing list of all time favorites. Leave me a comment and let me know what you thought of “Natural History”!
