Review - How I Met Your Mother Season 6 Episode 6 Baby Talk

The sixth season of How I Met Your Mother has brought the focus of the show back on the relationships. Lily and Marshall are the primary couple of the season and "Baby Talk," but the other characters are not ignored at the same time.

The episode focus on Marshall and Lily's potential child. Of course they want the gender they are themselves, and they go through of series of names, only finding themselves apprehensive at the possibilities. It's becoming more and more apparent that Robin and Barney will end up together. There was the mysterious wedding in the season premiere and now we learn that Barney is Robin's only ex that likes how she takes charge. Barney is, after all, a confident guy who won't feel bad about himself is Robin is doing something for him.

"Baby Talk" did not, however, strike me as a funny episode. Marshall and Lily performing all those ridiculous gags for conceive either a son or daughter were amusing, but no stunt actually had me laughing. Barney's baby talk was completely unfunny and the only part about the competition that was funny is the fact that Barney takes it so seriously.

Score: 8.6/10
