    From what I understand after reading various articles/interviews with the producers/writers...
    Not only is Barney pivotal to Ted meeting the eventual mother of his children, but more specifically, Robin and Barney getting together is the major key as to how that goes down.

    Looks like the "Barney Stinson's Video Resume" website isn't working.

    I'm a little disappointed about the episode, mostly because I was expecting
    that they were going to bring back the Intervention banner for Marshall's video montage addiction.

    Yeah, but they made a new one for Ted's Stella intervention.

    Haha thats right, and the Chart intervension was after that as well wasn't it. God I loved all the interventions. Haven't seen one in a while tho. It's up there with swarley as one of my favorite random jokes. I still demand the return and completion of Slap Bet. NOTHING has topped slap bet and them pulling it out. The one during barneys play was god damn hilarious.

    This is a show I really want to catch up on as I started watching at the end of last season.

    Is it good from the begining, or does it take time to get to funny level?

    It's funny pretty much from the start, second season is the best they've done as a collection, probably.

    The first season has incredible writing and character development, but the second season is where it just becomes the most hilarious sitcom on network TV.

    I just lol'd at the bagpiping. Easily the best part of the episode. Kind of like when they substituted sandwiches for weed. hahaha

    Though it was odd censoring "for his kids" considering how much he's told them about his and all their aunts and uncle's sex lives before.

    I always took that as one of the show's best gags, Mr. Atonement.

    I realize it was a gag for the tv audience, it just stood out as odd selective censoring from future ted who's told his kids he banged their aunt robin 7 times on thanksgiving and had a three way with some random girls, amongst other sexual tales.

    The reason it's hilarious is that he randomly censors some subjects, but largely ignores everything else. That's what makes it so funny.

    The episode was pretty fantastic, and as an actual bagpiper, it has now become a hilarious euphemism.

    I've found Future Ted to be pretty consistent about his selective censoring.

    Sex: No censoring. (I've jokingly referred to this show as "How I Used to Get Laid Before I Met Your Mother")
    Drugs: Censoring.
    Harsh Swear Words: Censoring.

    This is the first time I recall Future Ted censoring anything sexual. I could be wrong (it's been a while since I've seen the earlier episodes), but that made it stand out as something done for the audience, more than for the kids.

    I realize all the censoring gags are for the audience, but this one jumped out, to me, more than the others.

    Did I find it funny? Yes. It just was a bump in my suspension of disbelief.


    and now I'll put down the shovel

    He once censored the Victoria story involving a hot tub, whipped cream, and a few other things, which we assume was sexual in some way.

    And I guess he censored the peanut butter joke, too. But those were both things that were "too extreme," censoring something as mundane as noisy sex, still seems inconsistent.

    Why can't I let this go? I need an intervention.

    Maybe Future Ted has an issue with portraying the sex lives of people that weren't-dating or aren't close family members and friends?

    I think it has more to do with the term they were actually saying than the action.

    Not only was the bagpipes hilarious as substitution but you are seriously becoming desperate to find something to bitch about if you are complaining that it doesn't adhere to previous censoring. In fact I can't help but feel like if it hadn't been bag piped, the revelation of it being old people wouldn't have been as big of an impact. Especially due largely to the fact you can't actually hear the sounds, only their descriptions of of what is going on while the bagpipes are playing which gets your imagination going, and then you see the old people at the end are like, ooohhh, brutal haha. No the censoring was done perfectly. God I get so tired of some of your needs to nit pick shit to death.
