Quotes

Barney Stinson: [finishing his story about his ex-girlfriend Shannon] And then she told me about her life. Her and Greg dated for awhile, then split up. Here's the real kicker, Shannon's a mom. She has a little kid named Max. That's crazy. That could've been my kid. But, instead what do I have? My whole life's some money in the bank, some suits in my closet, and a string of one-night stands.
[begins to cry]
Lily Aldrin: Hey, come one. I mean, just because her life went one way, and yours went another doesn't make your life ...

Great
31 August 2006 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

I started watching How I Met Your Mother almost accidentally while I was looking for a new comedy series, especially after the end of Friends. While it I found this series average first, I somehow began to love this show without really noticing. After about 5-10 episodes I noticed that I was very excited about new episodes and that's when it was clear: This is new major comedy.

The episode "Game Night" is my famous episode of the first season, mostly because of the huge portion of Neil Patrick Harris, who really delivers the best performance in this series and who is - in my opinion

  • an underestimated actor. I really can't believe that he was not even


nominated for an Emmy.

This is (in my opinion) the best episode of HIMYM to date, chased by other great episodes like "The Pineapple incident" and "Come On".

If you are a fan of HIMYM and missed this episode: Find a way to watch it! It's really worth it.
