These are the top 10 How I Met Your Mother episodes ever, according to IMDb

Girls vs. Suits was ROBBED


How I Met Your Mother was one of the greatest sitcoms and even though the characters still deserve justice for the truly tragic ending, there is still much to be loved about the series. While a lot of the episodes are too iconic to ever forget about it, there is no way someone could decide the best How I Met You Mother episode ever.

IMDb has ranked every single episode of How I Met Your Mother with user votes to decide the ultimate best episode. The top 10 are all rated nine and above so the episodes are up against a lot of tough competition.

These are the top 10 best How I Met Your Mother episodes ever, ranked by IMDb:

10. Blitzgiving

IMDb score: 9.0

The official synopsis reads: “When Ted leaves the bar early to prepare a Thanksgiving feast for his friends, the gang winds up partying all night with The Blitz, an old friend from college who has bad luck. As a result, Ted is forced to spend Thanksgiving with Zoey.”

The number 10 spot goes to Blitzgiving, the episode where Ted plans to cook his first ever Thanksgiving episode but as a result he misses out on fun moments with his friends when he leaves early, and soon becomes the Blitz. The episode is nothing short of your usual HIMYM chaos so it makes sense as to why it’s in the top 10.

9. Girls vs. Suits

IMDb score: 9.0

Girls vs. Suits was robbed to be ranked at just the ninth best episode, and mainly because of Neil Patrick Harris’ song number.

The synopsis for Girls Vs. Suits reads: “Barney chooses between wearing suits and sleeping with a sexy bartender. Meanwhile, Ted gets ever closer to meeting the mother.”

This episode definitely deserves to be in the top five of best How I Met Your Mother episodes and there will be not further debates on the matter. As Barney tries get with the new bartender at McLarens, he has to ditch his suits and the episode then becomes a musical. Truly iconic.

7. Game Night

IMDb score: 9.0
