I have talked the greatness about the show and about the wonderful characters in the show. There are a lot of amazing episodes which showcases the strong screenplay and the perfect acting but there are some episodes that just steals the limelight. So I’m going talk about the best episodes to find in every season of the show and the progress of the show without any spoilers. This show also has a lot of guest stars who played a great cameo in the show. So let’s get to it shall we?
This season filled the void that FRIENDS left. People tends to be entertained and TV is a great way to do it then the movies(That’s just my opinion). People also like root for their favorite characters and that’s exactly what this show offered. Five young friends going on about their lives and the hero is telling everything in a story mode to his kids. Everything in the show that happened is from his perspective. The first season really cemented a place in people’s heart and became an instant success. The show attracted guest stars like Ashley Williams,Anne Dudek etc. The main thing that happened in the season is Marshall’s proposal to Lily and Barney’s past. Ted would chase after Robin and Lily would make a grave mistake and please don’t judge her because of that. The best episodes to look out for in the season are ‘Slutty Pumpkin’ and ‘The pineapple incident’.
In this season Ted will finally won Robin over with his romantic nature and Marshall and Lily will finally get married and Barney will find the true past about Robin’s career which will start two awesome running gags in the show,A slap bet and Robin sparkles videos.

Ted and Robin would break up which would create some awkward situations and to add fuel to fire Barney and Robin would hook up which would force Ted to stop being friends with him for more than a couple of episodes. Ted would move on with a girl called Stella and the way he would make her go out with him is really magical. So don’t miss out. All the awkwardness and misunderstandings will be sought out in the finale. This season had some great cameos from amazing guest stars like Britney Spears,Sarah Chalke etc. The best episodes to look out for in the season are ‘Ten Sessions’ and ‘How I met everyone else’. The episode called ‘The platinum rule’ is my favorite because it would showcase the importance of screenplay and it also showcased the writers intellect. This season also featured the Barney’s book on being a good bro called the Bro code.
Ted would take his relationship to the next level by proposing to Stella,which would turn out to be a big mistake. This would break his heart and spirit but he won’t give up. Barney would find himself having fallen for Robin and therefore he would recruit the help of Lily to win her over. Marshall would search for a new job and Robin moving in with Ted. This season would see all the characters having a tough time in Career except for Barney of course. The finale of the season would see Barney and Robin finally getting together. The season had some great guest stars like Marshall Manesh,Bryan Callen etc. The best episodes in the season are ‘Not a father’s day’ and ‘The Three day’s rule’.
This season saw the show reaching its 100th episode and it would have been a wonderful ride. If you watch the show in order from the first episode and after the show with passion then the 100th episode will be a treat for you. In this season everybody will get settled in their new jobs,Robin and Barney would be going strong but it would soon get worse after they hit a rough patch. The season had guest stars like Jennifer Lopez,Malin Akerman,Chris Kattan etc who would have played amazing cameos in the show. The best episodes of the season are ‘The Rough Patch’ and ‘Girls Versus Suits’. This season also featured the playbook which Barney would have written to have higher efficiency and great satisfaction in scoring a women.
This season would see Ted landing his dream job building a skyscraper which would be given to him by Barney. This means Barney,Marshall and Ted would work in the same company for a while. Ted would date a women who would challenge him at every turn,i mean every turn. Marshall and Lily would try to have kids and Robin would also get an amazing job. This season had lot of amazing guest stars like Katy Perry,Nicole Scherzinger,Jorge Garcia,
Will Forte,Kyle MacLachlan etc. There were some emotional episodes in this season where Marshall would lose his dad which would make Barney to find his dad which he would do but it would reopen his old wounds. No one likes to see a crying sad barney which he would be in one of the episodes. The best episodes in the season are ‘Last Words’ and ‘Glitter’.
This season would have episodes which would show bit of information about the mother and Ted rekindling one of his past relationship.

In this season Marshall and Lily would become parents and they would name their kid Marvin after Marshall’s dad. Ted’s building would finally get finished. Barney and Robin would also have something significant going on with their lives. I’m not gonna say what it is because it’s a big spoiler. The finale of the season would show the mother’s face and it would be worth the wait. Guest stars like Chris Elliott,Joe Manganiello etc. The best episodes to look out for in this season are ‘Ring Up’ and ‘The Fortress ‘.
The last season would be a story of 48 hours that would be said in a season. This season is really an emotional one with everything coming to an end. Don’t get too sad because in the end Ted would meet the love of his life. The finale would raise some questions and you would have a varied opinion. It’s all well and good because it was a huge success with the fans. Guest star like Taran Killam played a great cameo in the show. The best episode to look out for in the season is the finale called as the ‘Last Forever’.
This show has a lot to offer because it’s the emotional controller,that just means you can watch the show regardless of your mood. I have a set of episodes that I will watch if I’m ecstatic,sad,depressed and anger. This show sure left a void in TV and I think no-show can ever fill that void.
