How I Met Your Mother – Issue 8

With the announcement of “How I Met Your Father”, a sequel to the beloved sitcom “How I Met Your Mother”, I thought it would be a good time to binge all nine seasons. However, let’s be honest, we all have that flatmate constantly watching it on repeat (and for a good reason), so you never really forget it.


The show is a feel-good sitcom with some raw and profoundly sad moments. A cast of distinctive but relatable characters, unique structure, and numerous running gags such as the slap bet, “have you met Ted?”, and doppelgangers will leave you entertained and feeling like you’re part of the gang.


If you haven’t watched it in a while, I suggest giving it another viewing and taking a nostalgia trip to McLaren’s bar and catching up with the gang. Although some were disappointed with the ending, it’s a classic and still better than The Big Bang Theory.
