Awesome episode. The use of the brackets/March Madness (aside: I won my office's March Madness pool & I had no idea what I was doing *self high-five*). The Barney/Robin scenes. Marshall not knowing what to do with his hands. Lily dancing. The continuity of bringing some of Barney's conquests back. Barney getting slapped. Repeatedly. www.tedmosbyisajerk.com with a 20 minute song that is beyond brilliant. And then... wait for it...
*plucky synthesizer music from years gone by*
DOOGIE HOWSER HOMAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The ending with Barney typing in his blog. The blue screen! The sound of the keyboard as he types! The smile and head tilt! I laughed so hard my neighbours probably think I've gone crazy.
This show has completely won me over. It deserves its own tag. One more episode to watch and then I'm all caught up. It's going to be hard waiting for the weekly episodes after watching 2-3 episodes a night. And yes, S1 & S2 DVDs have already been purchased. Surprised? I didn't think so. =)
