What I’m Watching: How I Met Your Father

How I Met Your Father: Season 1, Episode 7 “Rivka Rebel” (B)

Sophie was understandably not all that thrilled that someone she really wanted to work with had only selected her because she was “halfway decent and available,” and that she would be photographing her daughter’s bat mitzvah as a test of her abilities. I had thought that bringing her best assistant would be the real challenge, but Valentina was very much up to the task, better equipped to talk to the nightmare tween social media starlet and ultimately ready to blackmail her into cooperation even though she hadn’t actually taken any drugs. Her cleverness could help lead to a major step in Sophie’s career, though Naomi seems like a nightmare boss. On the note of workplace performance, Charlie was spending way too much time obsessing over his positive Yelp reviews, and while I suspected it was Ellen who had left the negative ones, I didn’t expect Charlie to overdo it with his apology, writing a real Yelp review with Ellen’s actual phone number in it. Sid and Jesse’s bird makeup tutorial during their classic pound day took procrastination to a whole new level, but it did help Sid make an important decision about a wedding in India and Jesse to realize that he might have stronger feelings for Sophie than he realized. The brief interruption from the future from Sophie’s son indicating that Timothée Chalamet will become a pro wrestler was a humorous if entirely unbelievable note, given that the scrawny actor has carved out a solid niche for himself that doesn’t involve bulking up to please his fans.
