"Nannies"/S8E3

Posted on October 9, 2012 at 10:20 AM Comments comments (0)

By Dhruv Rao


I was touched by the end of tonight's HIMYM. It could have been better, but I prefer to focus on the positive...


The theme tonight was the beginning. Beginning of being dependent on a nanny, the beginning of the complaints in a relationship, and the beginning of trying to get over your ex. Let's go over them one by one...


Lily and Marshall: Lily gets back to work on Monday, and her big problem is that she doesn't...

"The Pre-Nup"/S8E2

Posted on October 2, 2012 at 11:15 AM Comments comments (0)

By Dhruv Rao 


The autumn of breakups is upon us, and somehow, the engaged couple are shot first. When we saw them getting engaged, we already knew that Barney was a womanizer and Quinn was a stripper. We also knew that the trust issues would come up after "Farhampton".  When I see the pre-nups combined in a huge pile, I see that HIMYM isn't lying, there are maritial trust issues nowadays...


If Quinn were the one for Barney, wouldn't he have...

"Farhampton"/S8E1

By Dhruv Rao


Let's open a box, and see what's inside...


1) "Farhampton": The Cold Open suggests the name of the town in which Robin and Barney get married. She can't actually go through with this. We move on and discover that Victoria doesn't leave a note for Klaus, her sweet German fiance. While Ted perfects her note, we discover that not only is Victoria leaving Klaus, but Klaus is leaving her as well. When Klaus explains that Victoria is al...

"Rabbit Or Duck"/S5E15

5) "Rabbit Or Duck" (S5E15)


I felt weird about this episode. I mean, how can you invlove 5 members in a Valentine's Special that somewhat brings us closer to "mother"? To that, I would reply by using the current stories and evolve them in a bitter-sweet confusing path...


Firstly, Barney uses the Superbowl as a method to bang chicks, another way introduced to bed 'em. So, he now possesses a magic phone which always rings or buzzes with a chick ...

4) "Three Days Of Snow"(S4E13)

I have never thought twice why HIMYM has won emmys for editing. I mean, there are flashbacks, flashforwards, imaginary situations and then there's this episode: where the entire story is dependent on immaculate editing. Tonight's theme was threes: a three day storm, three stories, three rituals.But there was one five: five words. One by one, sh...

"How I Met Everyone Else"/S3E5

3) "How I Met Everyone Else" (S3, E5):


The moment the cold open had led into the credits, I had felt this was going to be an AWESOME episode. And I wasn't proven wrong. It was a miniature version of the entire series in 20 minutes. The main use of the "did he didn't he" storyline was what attracted me.


There are mini-stories and I'm gonna go over them one by one:


a) Lily and Marshall: A tradition for these two. I liked how th...

"Drumroll, please"/"Something Borrowed" (S1E13/S2E21)

Posted on September 20, 2012 at 9:50 AM Comments comments (0)

Till this day, there have been 7 of my favorite HIMYM episodes. One for each season, so I will reveal my actual review to each one separately:


1)Drumroll, please (Season 1, Episode 13)

This episode made me laugh, cry and reflect at the same time. The long awaited third member of a love triangle that I saw in the pilot has finally arrived. To actually write the review, I will split the 22 minutes into three hilarious and emotional parts: Te...
