Review - How I Met Your Mother Season 6 Episode 3 Unfinished

How I Met Your Mother is a show that revolves around unfinished business--Ted discovering the Mother. Once that happens, the title is fulfilled. But for now, the time is still far away, though we can expect them to meet in a few seasons. In the meantime, however, there's still  unfinished business. While Ted looks for the perfect spouse, life continues.

One point is Ted designing the new GNB building. All the way back in season four, he was given the job before Sven won it back, and in "Unfinished," after the Swedes lost the contract, Barney tries to win Ted back, using tactics on Ted like he would on a female and provides some good laughs. Ted rejects Barney and his way, but eventually realizes that it is a personal decision to seize the opportunity and finish the job he had.

Likewise, Robin has unfinished business with Don, who ditched her for a better job. After calling Don several times, not deleting his number, and remembering his number, Robin simply forgets his number, providing closure for her, even if she didn't talk to him one last time.

Robin also has an unfinished goal of her own, and gives us solid laugh with a few funny scenes of her at the dojo fighting kids.

"Unfinished" doesn't have the emotional impact of last week's episode or the comedy of the season premiere's episode, and for a show in it's sixth season, I'm perfectly fine with that.

Score: 8.5/10
