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.
