You know how you’ll see a show and tell all of your friends it was great, and they’ll watch the next episode and report back to you that you were wrong and they’re never trusting you again and you’re like “But that was just the exact wrong episode!” How I Met Your Mother has kind of been like that recently. But between last week’s top-5-of-all-time episodes, “The Stinsons” and this week’s pretty good episode, “Sorry, Bro,” the show is getting back on track. And now nobody has to take my word for it, because CBS started putting full episodes online.
Here’s a clip from last night’s episode starring Laura Prepon as Ted’s ex girlfriend. You don’t have to know anything about the show to understand and possibly relate to pretentious college phases:
“She’s the heiress to the Massengill Fortune.” I can laugh at pretentious college girls, because in college I named my dog “Nietzsche.” Anyway, if you want a HIMYM entry point, you should start with “The Stinsons.” Full episode here.
