The ‘How I Met Your Mother’ Gang Celebrates 150th Episode in the Traditional Way

Next month, How I Met Your Mother will reach the milestone of 150 episodes—a noteworthy feat for any TV sitcom. But what makes How I Met Your Mother even more impressive is how it is celebrating: by placing the gang in its regular booth at MacLaren’s. A lesser series might opt for a hokey stunt, a wild multi-episode adventure, or some other cheap ratings grab. But How I Met Your Mother knows what we really want: a pretentious Ted, a manchild Marshall, a conniving Lily, a callous Robin, and…Barney.

The below pics may not have the gang involved in some flashy stunt, but it does remind us why we watch the show: we love spending time with the characters just as they love spending time with each other. Now, if we can only get Robin to ditch Kevin (Kal Penn) and get back together with Barney, we’ll be perfectly satisfied. And maybe another round of “Let’s Go to the Mall” would be nice, too…

How I Met Your Mother‘s 150th episode airs on CBS on Monday, Jan. 16 at 8 p.m. ET/PT.

Staff editor Michael Arbeiter’s natural state of being can best be described as “mild panic attack.” His earliest memories of growing up in Queens, New York, involve nighttime conversations with a voice from his bedroom wall (the jury’s still out on what that was all about) and a love for classic television that spawned from the very first time he was allowed to watch “The Munsters.” Attending college at SUNY Binghamton, a 20-year-old Michael learned two things: that he could center his future on this love for TV and movies, and that dragons never actually existed — he was kind of late in the game on that one.
