HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER: 8.15 “P.S. I Love You”
I actually really enjoyed this episode. Shocked? Really, I mean it. I think I got a kick out of all the cameos (Jason Priestley stood out particularly), as well as the Canadian jokes and even Full House throwbacks. I actually just enjoyed it.
Now, some caveats. I did miss thinking of Robin Sparkles as Robin Sparkles. Robin…Dagger, was it?…just felt odd. The 1990s-style music video was entertaining, and again, a great throwback. But I missed the 1980s, sparkly, bedazzled girl. Plus, it bugged me a little bit that she implied her career ended with “Sandcastles in the Sand” back in the day, and then we found out about this. So it was a little against canon.
But that’s really picky and I think it’s all personal preference. Overall, they did well.
As for Ted, I really didn’t understand the dobbler/dommer conversation (did I even spell those right?). And it went on too long. And overall, it just bugged me. But then again, it’s a Ted storyline. Those always kinda suck, right? (Sorry, see my previous post about Smash and my cold; it’s making me a bit blunt and harsh.)
But overall, I enjoyed the episode. Which is surprising, mainly because when I heard they were doing “Robin Sparkles 4, y’all,” I had low expectations.
So good job, HIMYM, you did something right.
