Unlike most sitcoms, How I Met Your Mother benefits from watching an entire season all at once. Not only do episodes routinely refer to past or future events, but the show's humor depends on what the five main characters themselves find funny. In fact, How I Met Your Mother is practically an analysis of how shared humor forges a group identity, as the friendship of these five hapless New Yorkers is held together by in-jokes and mutual history--to the point that it's almost impossible for anyone else to join their tight little tribe, including new viewers. This makes watching any single episode a little off-putting; the show doesn't seem that funny and the characters seem derangedly attached to each other. But with each episode you watch, you get drawn in more and more until you find sweeping declarations, the ducky tie, long-term bets, "The Night We," and pregnancy brain just as compelling as they do. --Bret Fetzer

SEASON 7: Season 6 came to a close with the news that Marshall and Lily are expecting a baby.Read more ›
First, the Slutty Pumpkin storyline is finally reconciled when Ted meets her, albeit nearly a decade later (played by Katie Holmes). The last five minutes of the episode are awesome, and almost made me a Katie Holmes fan (when she explains their short relationship from her point of view).
Also, Marshall and Lily finally have their baby, a long-awaited moment--and Lily's father finally comes back into the picture. This is further expanded on in season 8, where he finally redeems himself (as much as possible) after not being there during her childhood.
There are a lot of moments in this season that made me cry! The episode "Tailgate" and towards the end of the season, the awkward exchange between Ted and Robin as he finally lets her go ("No Pressure"). Overall, this was an excellent season and viewers see the show start to mature.
The cast each has their own personalities and quirks that make them all independently interesting.
