Trivia

Apart from How I Met Your Mother: Pilot (2005), and until the airing of the sixth season episode How I Met Your Mother: Hopeless (2011), this was the only episode to feature a different title sequence than the rest of the series, using a shorter version of the theme tune presumably to allow for more commercial time. The flying 'How I Met Your Mother' text seen in the pilot is used, accompanied by a shorter rendition of the normal theme music. The first two bars of the theme are shortened from eight to four notes, which then cuts to the ending of the normal theme. See more »

Goofs

At the Bar, Lily leaves the booth to go talk to Robyn at the bar, using the fourth wall escape route. The booth has always been against the wall entered from the far end. See more »

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.
