It’s our namesake episode! Barney capitalizes on a potentially embarassing situation, gaming everyone into publically revealing their most-embarassing stories while revealing his origins as a hippie nerd and then caps it off by nailing his first girlfriend — and taping it! Oh, and he’s basically Darth Vader. Erin and Leer talk How I Met Your Mother season 1, episode 15, “Game Night.”
Ted and Victoria go all the way in the least sexy way possible, Marshall and Lily are locked in a bathroom bottle episode, and Barney and Robin go on an amazing broing-out adventure that will eventually take us to the End Game. Yes, we’re talking How I Met Your Mother season 1, episode 14, “Zip, Zip, Zip.”
Ted teds a wedding (yes, that’s a verb now), breaking up a couple that should probably not get married and then getting them back together so he can mack on Robin… only to tell Robin to follow her dreams and then mack on a mystery girl we all know is Victoria. Join us for our first double episode discussing How I Met You Mother season 1, episodes 12 & 13, “The Wedding” and “Drumroll, Please.”
Ted goes above and beyond in the pursuit of the perfect New Year’s Eve when we all know it isn’t possible, Barney gets real, Lily and Marshall are in an episode of Outlander, not-Moby pulls a gun, Robin gets a hot dog, and a girl gets caught in Ted’s web. Also, Ranjeet. Join us and how much we hate Ted and his Christmas bonus for How I Met You Mother season 1, episode 11, “The Limo.”
If you thought Robin was a great wingman, just wait for Barney to display his game. Ted’s Superbrain won’t know what hit him when he meets Trudy in HIMYM’s first bit of stunt casting. Daddy’s home for The Re-Return’s discussion of season 1, episode 10, “The Pineapple Incident.”

Remember the first time Barney peed on something and helped people? Remember the first time Robin was a bitchin’ wingwoman? Remember the first time we meet Marshall’s family, and how unrealistically tall they all were? Take a walk down HIMYM memory lane in The Re-Return’s discussion of season 1, episode 9, “Belly Full of Turkey.”
Erin and Leer take on “The Duel,” in which bros battle for the future of their castle and a fair maiden is caught in the epic fight, Barney invents a new way to offend women, and Robin dates one of Apatow’s Geeks who accuses her of being a hooker. Who wants Chinese?
Check us out at therereturn.com and on Twitter at @TheReReturn and let us know what you think! Is The Lemon Law a good idea, in theory? Would you dump a dude for calling you a hooker? What would you do if your apartment was turned into a Chinese restaruant?
“Matchmaker, matchmaker make me a match…” In this classic, Ted stalks and propositions his first dermatologist while Lily and Marshall attempt to capture the Big Bad mysterious creature. Robin doesn’t do anything and even with an excellent alias, Barney still can’t nail any chicks.
Check us out at therereturn.com and on Twitter at @TheReReturn and let us know what you think! Does the musical cue when Ted doxes his perfect match change everything? Was this as bad as Ted stalking Robin in “Purple Giraffe”? Does the cryptozoology of the cockamouse (or, you know, Nessie) work for you?
Oh, and we’re totally wrong in the episode about that song being called “Landslide.” It’s “Parallel Or Together?” by Ted Leo.
Let’s travel back to several years past a time of policitcal turmoil in our nations history; Ted’s hanging chad costume clings to relevancy as gay pirates rule the day. Ted’s all-too-overt search for hope in a lost woman sits in opposition to Barney’s search for anyone that’ll have him as Robin double dates with Lily and Marshall in her quest to remain single.
ARE YOU READY TO PARRRRRTAY? Wine and cheese party, that is. Erin and Leer dive into classic How I Met Your Mother season one episode “Okay Awesome,” a confection of fun featuring the Lily’s attempts to adult, Marshall’s attempts to not adult, Ted’s hatred of all things fun, Robin’s questionable vision of her own fame, and, of course, Barney grinding on his cousin.
