HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER “Legendaddy” Review

HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER “Legendaddy” Season 6 Episode 19 – So what did you think of tonight’s episode? Did you think “Legendady” was Legen…wait for it…dary? For me, there were parts I liked and parts that were a bit disappointing – so let’s dive in:

Marshall: I was glad that he talked Barney into having dinner with his dad. Based on what happened to him I think he was the only person that could have gotten trough to Barney. I also thought it was hilarious that he was doing everything imaginable to get ridiculed from the group. What did you think was worse, the soul patch or the possum?

Lily: Wow, Lily really does have terrible aim. She also had a terribly small number of lines this episode. More Lily next week please!

Barney: So Barney learns that his dad is not a cool, suit wearing, ladies man with a cool job but rather a milk drinking, driving instructor from White Plains. Personally, I thought his dad seemed like a nice, normal guy and I’m hoping Barney is able to develop a relationship with him. John Lithgow is one of my favorite actors and I thought he did a good job as Barney’s father. It was hard getting use to him in this role after seeing him in Dexter.

Robin: For someone that works in journalism, there is still quite a bit that Robin does not know. My favorite was that she didn’t know the North Pole was a real place. What was your favorite fact that Robin didn’t know?

Ted: Of all the things that Robin didn’t know, I thought none of them compared to the fact that Ted didn’t know how to pronounce chameleon (Ted’s version: Cha-Mele-On). I thought it was a clever thing for the show to point out. I feel like once you’ve hit your thirties you are expected to know everything, however, we all have our own little “chameleons” in life that are obvious to everybody but ourselves. What are yours?

Personally, I was hoping for Barney’s dad to be not quite so normal and initially I was a little disappointed. However, the more I think on it, I feel like it’s a good decision to have his dad be normal. Barney is crazy enough for the both of them and maybe he will be a good influence and encourage Barney to mature. What were your favorite moments from tonight’s episode? Leave me a comment and let me know what you thought of Legendaddy!
