Review - How I Met Your Mother Season 5 Episode 14 Perfect Week

Cook Pu. If you didn't laugh at that, you were probably annoyed by the constant reference to the name, but if you are like Ted and the rest of them, you were probably laughing or at least smiling the entire episode. It was brought up constantly to remind Ted of his own shortfalls, and was a quick one-liner to shut him up.

Lily and Marshall scare off another couple because they reveal they share a toothbrush. Everyone is disturbed by them, and rightfully so. Then it turns out Ted was also using that toothbrush, and then Robin reveals she used that toothbrush. It's so disgusting, I wanted to rinse my mouth while watching the episode.

The two gags never went anywhere, but set a nice backdrop for the main story which was funny and sad at the same time. About to be fired, Barney sleeps with women to take his mind off things. He imagines sportcaster Jim Nantz doing the play-by-play for his "perfect week." There wasn't much to the story as with the rest of the episode. Barney sleeps with a girl on Day 1, he talks with Jim Nantz, and so on until the last day when New York Yankees outfielder Nick Swisher comes in. Lily distracts the girl long enough for Ted and Robin to sit with Nick. Barney gets the girl and becomes only the second person ever to have a perfect week.

Score: 9.0/10
