HIMYM Season 7 Episodes 1 & 2 Review


Monday night gave us two brand new episodes of How I Met Your Mother – “The Best Man” and “The Naked Truth”. Both of them were pretty much on par with the past season, bringing lots of laughter and even some tears. Definite spoilers ahead!!!


Didn’t Love:
  • Barney’s two fat jokes early on:
Barney: Sure, this tie is skinny now, but what if it gets fat and starts bossing me around?!
Barney: Single file ladies – no fatties!
Ted: That’s ridiculous
Barney: You’re right, it’s Cleveland…single  file, ladies!
  • The return of Victoria…I just can’t get on board with this. I dislike Victoria and I’m really not sure why. Her and Ted have a very romantic back story with unfinished business, so I’m not surprised that she turned up again. Based on prior clues it doesn’t seem possible that she is the mother, so I can tolerate her presence. I can’t quite explain it…she’s an attractive woman, but there’s something about her face that I find aesthetically unappealing. But this should make a good story arc for a while. I tried to see if she was sporting a ring on her left ring finger but wasn’t able to get a glimpse.
  • Barney’s fake fingernails. SO GROSS.
  • Barney using Robin’s love confession as a script for his call with Nora. Poor Robin, this scene made me cry a little.
New Mysteries:
  • The Ducky Tie (appears to be the topic of next week’s episode)
  • Marshall getting drunk in the future – at a casino with Barney? Wearing a shirt that says Marshall hearts Steph forever? I wasn’t able to catch a good look at that scene either, I will clarify and add screenshots after I watch online.
