CBS recently gave a pilot order for a HIMYM spinoff titled How I Met Your Dad. Being a huge fan of HIMYM and being generally against the idea of spinoffs, I was surprised how much I like the idea of this spinoff. Watch me defend myself below. Follow me around the Internet.

OV’s Favorite How I Met Your Mother Episodes

Tonight my pick for television’s most consistently funny sitcom begins its final season. The 9th season of CBS’s How I Met Your Mother will see vast changes to the storytelling structure of the show. The entire season will take place over one weekend with various jumps forwards and backwards in time. Adding to the changes, we now have the Mother cast and ready to win the hearts of the HIMYM fan base and Ted.

It’s going to be sad to see HIMYM take its final bow, but it’s also a time to celebrate. In honor of tonight’s premiere, I have compiled a list of my favorite HIMYM episodes. I was originally going to confine myself to a ten-episode list but after 8 seasons that is just impossible. Instead, I’ve chosen two episodes from each season to put into the pantheon of great sitcom episodes.

You can read my list below. It would have been far too difficult to rank these episodes, so for the sake of my sanity I’m presenting them in chronological order.

Let me know what episodes you would include and why in the comments below or on Twitter @ObsessiveViewer. You can also like the blog on Facebook and subscribe to the podcast on iTunes. Continue reading

So here’s a weekly series I’m going to try my best to work on as the fall TV season unfolds. Continue reading
