Now in its sixth season, no sitcom has had a comedic resurrection like “How I Met Your Mother,” since the last season of “Scrubs” (not including “Scrubs 2.0”). The last month has seen the show’s best episodes since seasons two and three, as its brought back some old “HIMYM” mythology and introduced some new mythology, like last week’s “Two Beavers are Better than One” and this week’s “The Blitz,” a curse that afflicts those who leave gatherings early, causing them to miss out on all the good stuff. Like skateboarding bulldogs and Brando first appearing in “Apocalypse Now,” synced perfectly with Weird Al’s “Eat it.”
Last night’s episode, which featured Jorge Garcia and a several “Lost” references, was one of the best of the season. Here are the 12 best moments — the only thing missing was a Garcia casually dropping a “Dude!” You won’t understand any of these moments unless you saw the episode, and if you didn’t, perhaps you have been afflicted with The Blitz.
