The Best How I Met Your Mother Episodes, Ranked (2022)

The Best How I Met Your Mother Episodes, Ranked (1)

Kids, in the winter of 2022, Hulu debuted How I Met Your Father - which, as the title alone should suggest, is a gender-swapped update of How I Met Your Mother, which chronicled Ted Mosby’s (Josh Radnor) quest to find “The One” amid various misadventures with his friends in New York City. Narrated by the late Bob Saget (who was honored on the premiere of the new series) as Future Ted, the clever sitcom ran for nine seasons on CBS, amounting to a total of 208 episodes that made fans laugh, cry, and after the series finale even boil with rage (though Radnor didn't think fan response was that bad).

Upon the premiere of the spin-off, I could not help but be reminded of some of the most legen- wait for it…DARY moments from the original, which were still pretty fresh in my mind after a relatively recent full-scale binge, and having already seen the bulk of series more times than I can count. Thus, I had no problem accepting the challenge to compile my picks for the top 10 best episodes of How I Met Your Mother, starting with an early one that is still pretty awesome, okay?

The Best How I Met Your Mother Episodes, Ranked (2)

10. Okay, Awesome (Season 1, Episode 5)

Robin (Cobie Smulders) gets her, Ted, and Barney (Neil Patrick Harris) into the prestigious club, Okay, while Marshall (Jason Segel) and Lily (Alyson Hannigan) host an insufferably boring wine tasting. Eventually, they all come together at the club, but the experience is less-than “okay” thanks to unnecessarily loud music, overpriced drinks, strict bouncers, broken teeth, and Barney’s awkward surprise reunion with his cousin.

“Okay, Awesome” is one of the funniest episodes of the show’s debut season, especially for its spot-on depiction of why, as Ted and Jayma Mays’ (one of many actors you may have forgotten were on the sitcom) coat check girl agree, “clubs suck.” The episode is also essential for getting to know the How I Met Your Mother cast of characters as it is one of the first to show them all in vulnerable and uncomfortable states at a place intended for letting loose.

9. Spoiler Alert (Season 3, Episode 8)

Another episode that is a must for getting to know the HIMYM characters is a Season 3 classic that actually sees the gang get to know each other better. It starts when the others clue-in Ted to his new girlfriend’s excessive talking habit, something he never realized until then, setting off a chain reaction that exposes everyone’s previously unnoticed flaws.

“Spoiler Alert” is yet another prime example of HIMYM’s relatable humor, since rude awakenings to your family and friends’ irritating habits is something we all go through, unfortunately. Yet, as the episode also proves, those little things are easily overshadowed by what you love about them at the end of the day.

8. The Naked Man (Season 4, Episode 9)

Season 4 saw Ted at his lowest after ex-fiancée Stella (Scrubs and Rick and Morty cast member Sarah Chalke) left him at the alter, but what helped him come out of his shell was a seduction technique that inventor Mitch (Adam Paul) calls the Naked Man. After the move works for Mitch on Robin, the rest of the gang put its guaranteed “two-out-of-three” success rate to the test.

There is not much to learn from this particularly raunchy episode - except, maybe, that trying the Naked Man in real life would most likely end the way it does for Barney. However, there is plenty of endearing humor amid its raunchiness, from the gang listing various reasons to have sex to Ted and Barney trading their own variations of the titular move over the phone.

7. Right Place, Right Time (Season 4, Season 22)

The damaging effects of Ted’s doomed engagement to Stella were a defining theme of Season 4 that came to a surprising peak in one of the series’ most inspiring episodes. Future Ted teaches his kids a lesson in fate by recalling a series of disparate circumstances that would ultimately guide him toward a life-changing moment: crossing paths with Stella and Tony (former Daily Show correspondent Jason Jones), who would later offer him a job teaching architecture.

A major theme of How I Met Your Mother as a whole is how the outcome of our lives are determined not just by our decisions, but by outsider circumstances that unexpectedly and mysteriously become instrumental in achieving our destinies. “Right Place, Right Time” brings that concept to the forefront in a clever, thought-provoking, and structurally inventive way.

6. Drumroll, Please (Season 1, Episode 13)

Speaking of chance meetings, Season 1 almost had us convinced that “The Mother” was Victoria (Ashley Williams), with whom Ted spends a romantic evening at Stu and Claudia’s wedding reception with no intention of meeting again until he becomes smitten with her. Little does he know, Robin holds the key to his reunion with this new love interest, but she is reluctant to reveal it having suddenly become smitten with him.

The grand love story that is our lives sometimes includes one brief, but perfect, encounter with another that doesn't need to last any longer. While Ted and Victoria do end up starting an ill-fated romance by the end of the episode, “Drumroll, Please” - referring to the lead-in before a kiss - is a wonderful meditation on those cherished moments.

5. Slap Bet (Season 2, Episode 9)

Part of the fun of a relationship is learning new things about one another, such as the epic bombshell we learn about Robin in Season 2. Speculation over the root of her fear of malls leads the gang to discover her past as pop star Robin Sparkles, whose signature hit in Canada was “Let’s Go to the Mall.”

Few How I Met Your Mother episodes are as important to understanding the full narrative of the show as this one that introduces two recurring gags: Robin’s embarrassing career in show business and the titular “Slap Bet.” Barney slaps Marshall after incorrectly assuming his bet that Robin was a porn star was true and, as punishment, must endure five random slaps, which Marshall completes in Season 9.

4. Game Night (Season 1, Episode 15)

Speaking of epic bombshell discoveries, what we learn about Barney in Season 1 is arguably even more unbelievable. A simple game of “Marshgammon” turns into a night of groundbreaking reveals about one another, including Barney’s past as a meek, virginal hippie whose dreams of going to the Peace Corps with then-girlfriend, Shannon (Katie Walder), were crushed when she left him for a douchebag businessman.

Another valuable HIMYM lesson is how dramatically our personalities can change over time. “Game Night” spells this out in a dazzlingly funny way by tracing Barney’s evolution from an entirely different person to an Armani-clad commitmentphobe.

3. Legendaddy (Season 6, Episode 19)

Another life-changing moment for Barney was meeting his real father, whom he once believed was Bob Barker. In Season 6, he learns it is really his “Uncle Jerry” (John Lithgow) after he shows up at his doorstep and they spend an evening together that, according to Barney’s description, was “legendary.”

However, this story is a misdirect to hide that Jerry is really a “lame suburban dad” whom Barney claims he wants nothing to do with, which proves to be another misdirect. A lame suburban dad is all Barney ever really wanted and needed, as revealed in a climatic confrontation between the father and son that makes “Legendaddy” one of HIMYM’s most heartbreaking chapters.

2. How Your Mother Met Me (Season 9, Episode 16)

Now, let’s talk about some real heartbreak, huh? We finally met “The Mother,” eventually revealed to be named Tracy McConnell (Palm Springs star Cristin Milioti), in the Season 8 finale and saw glimpses of her relationship with Ted throughout Season 9, but never really got to know her personally until Episode 200: “How Your Mother Met Me,” which follows the series’ full timeline from her perspective.

While on a journey to overcome the trauma of her boyfriend’s sudden death on her 21st birthday, Tracy helps Mitch discover the Naked Man’s two-out-of-three success rate, unofficially becomes acquainted with Ted in what he thought was his architecture course, and more classic callbacks. Putting a perfect cap on the already moving story is her tender ukulele rendition of “La Vie En Rose” on the night before Barney and Robin’s wedding, unaware that Ted can hear from the room next door.

The Best How I Met Your Mother Episodes, Ranked (11)

1. The Pineapple Incident (Season 1, Episode 10)

In lieu of its many tender, inspiring, or thought-provoking moments that we have covered, I believe there is one episode above all others that best captures the essence of How I Met Your Mother as a story about choice and consequence, lessons learned, and the strange place life often takes us, all while being thoroughly hilarious. That episode is the Season 1 classic “The Pineapple Incident.”

The title refers to the fruit on Ted’s nightstand the morning he finds a woman in his bed, his ankle sprained, a strange phone number written on his arm, and no memory of what happened between his five shots of “Red Dragon” and the moment he woke up. In fact, the pineapple is the one thing left unexplained after the gang struggles to piece together Ted’s drunken misadventures with the clues they have, resulting in a suspenseful tale that, in typical HIMYM fashion, both celebrates debauchery and reminds you to proceed with caution.

And kids..., that's how we ranked the best episodes of How I Met Your Mother. Would you agree?

Jason has been writing since he was able to pick up a washable marker, with which he wrote his debut illustrated children's story, later transitioning to a short-lived comic book series and (very) amateur filmmaking before finally settling on pursuing a career in writing about movies in lieu of making them. Look for his name in just about any article related to Batman.

From long-running slap bets to Barney's increasingly outlandish strategies to seduce any woman that crossed his path, here's the best of "HIMYM."

Though Ted and Robin broke up at the end of "How I Met Your Mother" Season 2, the lingering attraction between them was explored halfway through Season 4 in the episode "Benefits.". The series begins with Marshall finally proposing to Lily after years of dating.. Some of the best episodes of "How I Met Your Mother" involve the gang revisiting their history together, and the Season 4 episode "Intervention" is a great showcase for this.. "How I Met Your Mother" began with Marshall and Lily's engagement and, despite all the twists and turns along the way, the couple finally marries at the end of Season 2.. And more than simply relying on tension between Barney and Marshall, "Slapsgiving" reminds audiences that Ted and Robin could still play off each other well, even after their failed romance.. After years of just missing out on seeing the mother and offering plenty of clues, the pieces of the puzzle finally came together in the Season 9 episode "How Your Mother Met Me."

<p>As the series wraps with episode No. 208, we rank our all-time favorites from How I Met Your Mother.</p>

How I Met Your Mother | Season 1, episode 18 They may have had a great season together, but Ted and Robin didn't have the greatest start.. Look at you now, Barney!. This episode was. How I Met Your Mother | Season 2, episode 21 Lily and Marshall's wedding was anything but perfect.. And this season

Our list of the best How I Met Your Mother episodes is chronological by season, starting with the first. Enjoy!

The. episode explores the Ted / Barney relationship and helps explain why Ted keeps Barney around,. despite his various flaws.. Eventually, Robin admits that she did get married in a mall, so Marshall slaps Barney.. But it is later revealed that Robin lied, so Lily awards Barney 3 slaps on Marshall (for being prematurely slapped).. Due to Barney’s erroneous slap on Marshall, Lily gives him two choices: to be slapped 10 times in a row right now, or to be slapped 5 times from now until eternity at whatever time Marshall chooses.. Barney was recently licensed to marry people, so under a tree outside, Barney weds Lily and Marshall in front of just two people – Ted and Robin.

Counting down from 205 to 186.

This episode would have been better off being talked about in a more meaningful episode as something that happened off-screen.. The episode that follows “Who Wants to Be a Godparent?” is the second worst one in the series, “The Autumn of Break-Ups.” Ted’s only compatible girlfriend until the Mother, Victoria, goes totally out of character in this one so that the writers would have a reason to write her off of the show, which is a pretty big slap in the face for anyone who liked the character.. The prime example of that phenomenon is this episode, the third slap-centric episode of the series.. So why in this episode do they look exactly the same in 2013 as they do in 2030?. This episode also sets up an episode that I really enjoy ("Twelve Horny Women"), but more on that later.. This episode is just that gimmick, though, as it may be the least substantive episode in the entire series.

Haaaave you seen these great HIMYM episodes?

Narrated by the late Bob Saget (who was honored on the premiere of the new series) as Future Ted, the clever sitcom ran for nine seasons on CBS, amounting to a total of 208 episodes that made fans laugh, cry, and after the series finale even boil with rage (though Radnor didn't think fan response was that bad )..

We pick from over 200 episodes of CBS sitcom How I Met Your Mother to select the 10 funniest...

The difference between the couples is very well written and produces some great comedy as Lily and Marshall despair at Ted’s super slow seduction technique.. I’m pretty sure we’ve all been in relationships which seemed like a great idea to begin with, but quickly turned into a head-desk situation, possibly on either side.. There are a couple of big reasons why Game Night was the best instalment of How I Met Your Mother ’s maiden season.. The first is that it was another Victoria episode.. During the ninth season, an online poll found that Victoria was the viewers’ favourite of all Ted’s liaisons throughout the show, beating even Robin.. Ashley Williams, at least during the character’s first run, made Victoria funny and loveable.. The idea of the naked man is very funny.. Minute for minute there are more laughs in this episode than any other in How I Met Your Mother ’s catalogue and it’s episodes like this one which makes me miss this show more than I actually miss some people.

How I Met Your Mother, which ran on CBS for eight seasons from 2005 to 2014, is really the tale of two sitcoms; there’s the good How I Met Your Mother, which invests in the misadventures of a lovable group of friends living in New York City (that should sound familiar), and there’s the bad […] The post Goliath’s Favorite Episodes Of ‘How I Met Your Mother’ appeared first on Goliath.

How I Met Your Mother , which ran on CBS for eight seasons from 2005 to 2014, is really the tale of two sitcoms; there’s the good How I Met Your Mother , which invests in the misadventures of a lovable group of friends living in New York City (that should sound familiar), and there’s the bad How I Met Your Mother , which takes those lovable characters, turns them into caricatures and drags them down with intolerable romantic drama or petty squabbles.. The show, for all of its stellar moments (and it had some of the best sitcom moments ever, make no mistake), had just as many boring, humdrum or downright annoying moments, and this dichotomy makes lists like the following, which isolates the 10 best episodes of How I Met Your Mother , all the more crucial.. While most of the show’s first season plays it fast and loose with that balance (the show figures it out a little better in Seasons 2-4), it’s finely executed in “Drumroll, Please,” the thirteenth episode of the show’s first season.. Ted isn’t the only man on How I Met Your Mother with a claim to grand romantic gestures, however; Marshall Eriksen (as played by Jason Segel) has a trick or two up his sleeve, and that’s best exemplified in “Three Days of Snow,” an episode which sees Marshall attempting to honor tradition by meeting his wife, Lily (Alyson Hannigan) at the airport despite a massive snowstorm hitting New York.. An episode which features one of the truly great romantic gestures in the series’ history (Marshall brings a full orchestra along for the ride, courtesy of Ted and Barney, who befriend the band while watching over a bar for a friend), as well as the classic “We should buy a bar!” realization that every man experiences at some point or another in his life, “Three Days of Snow” is a hilarious and adorable episode that wants to take you to Aruba, Jamaica…just watch the episode and you’ll get it.. How I Met Your Mother has introduced several famous cultural idiosyncrasies by now, not the least of which is the Hot/Crazy scale, outlined by Barney Stinson in “How I Met Everyone Else,” the fifth episode of the show’s third season.. When speaking of Ted’s new girlfriend “Blah Blah” (Ted cannot remember the name of this specific woman, and therefore she is retroactively referred to as Blah Blah for the duration of the episode), Barney explains that a woman’s hotness must correlate directly to compensate for her craziness; the hotter a woman is, the more crazy a man is willing to put up with to be with her.. The gang quickly finds out that Ted’s new girlfriend is a little closer to the crazy side than she is to the hot one as they tell the various stories about how they met each other, including Marshall and Lily’s early romantic trysts and the story of how Ted met Robin (which makes Blah Blah really, really angry).. Barney Stinson pulls a lot of pranks over the eight seasons of How I Met Your Mother , but few are funnier than his scheme from “Mary the Paralegal,” the nineteenth episode of the show’s first season.. After appearing to lose an argument with Ted and Marshall over the ethical implications of hiring a prostitute, Barney goes ahead and hires one for Ted, the titular Mary, in an effort to help the latter make Robin jealous (Ted occasionally digresses to the equivalent of a petty child).. The rest of the episode is spent with Ted, Marshall, Lily and Barney attempting to figure out just who the woman is, and what exactly the pineapple was doing placed somewhere near Ted’s nightstand.

'How I Met Your Mother': How we picked our top 50. Plus: What are your picks?

Some fans like the humor of “Slap Bet;” some like the emotion of “Last Words;” some think the the show has never been better than when it introduced “The Naked Man” (two out of three times!).. We considered humor level, whether each episode advanced the show’s plot forward, whether the installment dealt with the show’s mythology, any recurring jokes introduced, etc.. We know our list is going to be debated, and this is the place to do it.. In the comments, tell us your picks for favorite episodes and your own Top 10.. How I Met Your Mother 01

There were nine seasons of How I Met Your Mother in total, so the framing device of older Ted telling the story to his kids started to get a little tedious. But no matter how thin they wore the premise over the years, the show itself never stopped being a funny, heartfelt, inventively told study …

And aside from the questionable story arc and romantic interest, some of the standalone or throwaway ideas in this season, sadly, just don’t work.. These are the kinds of episodes that make How I Met Your Mother a great show.. Season 2 begins with Marshall and Lily broken up and Ted and Robin getting together, and then ends with Marshall and Lily getting married and Ted and Robin breaking up.. The first season of How I Met Your Mother was a very strong start for the show.. But if you look back on season 1 now, with the knowledge of what the show went on to become, it’s actually a very solid start to the show.

Barney and Co. are back this week; here are the past exploits that set the standard all that follow will be measured against (and, yes, ''The Naked Man'' is on the list)

Drunk Ted is probably the best thing HIMYM has ever given us, apart from Barney Stinson, Robin Sparkles, and all of Marshall's. Neil Patrick Harris, How I Met Your Mother | (Season 1, 2006) Via the magic of flashbacks, Robin falls in poop, Ted pukes on Robin's doormat, and Marshall and Lily have sex while his. How I Met Your Mother | (Season 2, 2006) There's a barista named Chloe who's got a crush on the now-single Marshall.. Stories ensue about crazy-eyed women as Lily attempts to prevent Marshall and Chloe from hooking up; in the end, it's what brings the future Mr. and Mrs. Ericksen back together.. Cobie Smulders, How I Met Your Mother | (Season 2, 2006) Arguably the best episode in the show's excellent history.. Neil Patrick Harris, How I Met Your Mother | (Season 2, 2007) As Marshall and Lily prepare for their wedding, Barney goes on The Price Is Right because he believes Bob Barker (played by. As we learn more about Barney's tragic past — being a man-whore is really the least of his problems — we also get the insane pleasure of watching Neil Patrick Harris as an overzealous TPiR contestant, spinning the big wheel and everything.. In an attempt to figure out who it is, Barney narrows down the 100-plus women he's wronged (including, apparently, Madeleine Albright) into an NCAA-style bracket of 64, then enlists the gang to help him figure out the culprit.. Neil Patrick Harris, How I Met Your Mother | (Season 3, 2008) Picks up right where ''Sandcastles in the Sand'' left off: Barney and Robin have slept together, and they vow to not tell. Personal favorite: ''You're already at their place and don't want to have to move your car.''. Neil Patrick Harris, How I Met Your Mother | (Season 4, 2009) Barney is about to sleep with his 200th woman, and chooses a supermodel to be the landmark conquest.

You won’t have to search hard to find reasons why How I Met Your Mother (HIMYM) gained a huge following over the years it aired. From Josh Radnor to Cristin Milioti, Jason Segel to Alyson Hannigan, Cobie Smulders and Neil Patrick Harris, the main cast of the sitcom did a fantastic job that left everyone […]

Among them, we believe the following are the best How I Met Your Mother Episodes.. Marshall, still single, tries to ask out the girl who got Barney’s name wrong, but Barney and Ted discourage him because she has “crazy eyes”.. Ted is trying to come to terms with moving to a new city to be with his girlfriend Stella, Robin is set to move to Japan for a new job, and Lily and Marshall are packing up everything they want to take with them to their new house.. The friends are struggling to make sense of moving on to a future that is uncertain and unknowable and this is a feeling the audience could identify with, so the episode really stole our hearts.. It is definitely one of the best How I Met Your Mother episodes.. This is one of the classic episodes that HIMYM ever gave us because it combined two incredible narratives: the story of “Robin Sparkles” (Robin’s secret past as a Canadian teen pop-star), and Marshall and Barney’s slap bet over what details Robin is hiding about her hatred for malls.. Season 3, Episode 5 – How I Met Everyone Else: Image Source This is one of the episodes that have aged really well.. You can’t count the best How I Met Your Mother episodes and leave out the Something Borrowed episode of season 2.. If there’s one thing we know, it’s that HIMYM really loved weddings, and this episode about Lily and Marshall’s is one of the best we got to see.. The slap countdown is on, and there’s a wonderful song written and performed by Marshall at the end of the episode to christen the event.. They mockingly expose each other’s quirks: Ted likes to correct everyone, Robin uses “literally” wrongly and way too much, Lily chews loudly, and Marshall likes to make a meaningless string of words into a song.. Certainly, it is among the best How I Met Your Mother episodes.. This episode tells her story, weaving through past scenes in which she nearly met Ted and her own journey towards love.

Despite its divisive finale, "How I Met Your Mother" is filled with funny and touching moments. We're counting down all nine seasons from worst to best.

Season 4 was the only season of "How I met Your Mother" to be nominated for an Emmy for outstanding comedy series, but I'm not really sure why.. There was some slow-burn Barney and Robin stuff but no memorable love interests for Ted (like Stella and Victoria in previous seasons) or additions to the canon of recurring jokes (like the doppelgangers or the slap bet) this season.. Did they really like the finale?. That happens in Season 5!. While I don't like the "How I Met Your Mother" series finale, I do really like the final season and the crazy concept it tries to pull off.. Is Season 3 the best?. Season 2!

With How I Met Your Mother in the books, we take a look back at some the series' most legendary episodes...

In honor of the show's end, we've compiled a Top 10 Episodes of How I Met Your Mother list, looking back at some of our favorite storylines.. The episode that started it all, and one that changed sitcoms forever.. From Ted meeting Robin for the first time to Barney Stinson's legendary first appearance -- and don't forget the blue French horn!. "Look around, Ted.. To this day, How I Met Your Mother's greatest mystery is "The Pineapple Incident," in which a hungover Ted wakes up with a pineapple, a girl he believes to be Robin and no memory of the night before.. Over the course of the episode, Ted reconstructs the events from the evening, thanks to Marshall, Lily, Barney, Robin and... Trudy (played by The Wonder Years' Danica McKellar), the girl who actually stayed the night at Ted's place.. So there are basically three solid reasons "Slap Bet" is the best episode of How I Met Your Mother.. Show him some love by following @Max_Nicholson on Twitter, or MaxNicholson on IGN.

Remember Robin Sparkles? Or when Barney tamed the cougar? These and other classic "How I Met Your Mother" moments rank among the show's funniest.

In the process, Ted picks up a tight group of friends that include Marshall (Jason Segel), Lily (Alyson Hannigan), Robin (Cobie Smulders), and Barney (Neil Patrick Harris).. Lily accidentally overhears Ted calling her a very bad word (substituted with "Grinch" in Ted's narration to his children) while telling Marshall to get over her.. But over time, a number of illusions are shattered when Ted, Lily, Marshall, and Barney start pointing out each other's character flaws.. Like Lily chewing loudly, Marshall singing about everything, Ted overcorrecting people, and Robin misusing the word "literally", as well as Barney's many failings as a friend.. Over time, Ted, Marshall, Lily, Robin, and Barney started holding interventions at the drop of a hat.. By the time Barney completes his second half of the play, Marshall is so fed up that he uses his second slap on Barney from their bet.

Oh hey guys!  Didn't see you there!  I've just been sitting here and reminiscing over the last 21 years.  (We get it!  You're 21!)  For the ...

Didn't see you there!. For those who don't know, How I Met Your Mother is basically an old Ted telling his kids the story of how he met his wife and their mother.. The show's gone on for 9 seasons now and if I had to give the show a review on the spot I'd give it a solid "Guapo".. Season 6 (Best Episode- Blitzgiving) This season was by no means a bad one, it was just the least good out of the rest of the seasons.. Season 2 (Best Episode- Slap Bet) So many great moments in this season.. Season 1 (Best Episode- The Pineapple Incident) This is really before the show hit its comedic stride but I couldn't deny it had some great moments.. Game Night is still one of my favorite episodes and would be my favorite of this season if it weren't for the genius that is The Pineapple Incident.. Season 5 (Best Episode- Girls vs Suits) This is actually the very first season I watched in full.. I saw this season and fell in love with the show and I had to go back and watch every single season.. Season 3 (Best Episode- Slapsgiving) How about instead of me listing the episodes I liked I just list the episodes I didn't like.... Season 4 (Best Episode- The Naked Man) This is season when How I Met Your Mother hit its prime.. ( Who wouldn't.)
