How I Met Your Mother – “Desperation Day”

I like that How I Met Your Mother is spending a fair amount of time on Marshall and his loss. It would be easy for a sitcom to make it a two-parter and move on, but as “Desperation Day” proves, he’s going through a lot more than grieving. In the season where Marshall and Lily planned on having a child, Marshall is starting to understand what it really means to be an adult and a father. That’s pretty cool.

However, why is Ted freaking out about Zoey all the sudden? He used to be all about relationships that moved quickly. I guess he just really likes her? Anyway, his freakout brought him back to Minnesota, something I appreciated because Ted and Marshall acting like big kids is funny. They play video games, wear dirty clothes, and flat out refuse switching to orange juice when they run out of Sunny D. That’s good stuff.

What were the rest of the characters up to? Well, Lily was so lonely she turned her body pillow into a companion, Marshpillow. This lead to some easy jokes, but they still landed, so props to Alyson Hannigan. Robin once again has nothing to do except mock the others and then provide fodder for them. This time Barney is in Predator mode, so Robin brings her friends for him to mock and then later hook up with at the long-awaited lazer tag tournament.

How I Met Your Mother is kind of just coasting right now, but so are most shows around the Valentine’s Day holiday. At least we’ve got some quality emotional character development for Marshall. It’s been a good season so far and it shows no signs of changing any time soon.
