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. We much prefer the former to the latter, but it’s the inconsistency outlined above that’s made How I Met Your Mother such a frustrating viewing experience. 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. No longer do you have to sort through the dross to find a great episode, just check out what we’ve gotten written here!
10. “Drumroll, Please” (Season 1, Episode 13)
At its best, How I Met Your Mother balances the romantic inclinations of Ted Mosby (Josh Radnor) with the comedic timing of his friends and acquaintances. 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. This episode, which introduces audiences to the major love interest of season one (outside of Cobie Smulders Robin Scherbatsky), Victoria (played by Ashley Williams), who ends up spending a whole lot of time playing coy when she meets Ted at a wedding (where she was not a guest, but rather made the cake). “Drumroll, Please” also sees Barney attempting to score with a bridesmaid (of course), as well as Marshall and Lily attempting to help Ted discover Victoria’s real identity so he can find her after (mistakenly) leaving the wedding without discovering her real name.http://vacygatigawu.dyali.info/how-i-met-your-mother-episode-13.php Source: Vacygatigawu.dyali.info
