I think this week How I Met Your Mother may have earned its narrator. I'm still not keen on the kids, or on the need to remind us "nope, that's not who he'll marry, either," but both of those were reduced mostly to blips this week. And in their place, the show's writers realized they had a first person narrator, meaning he's both unreliable and limited in pov. One of the running bits this episode was an "I wasn't there, but..." that let the writers to do some over-the-top stuff under the auspices of the narrator only having someone else's word for what happened. They get to provide daring, third-story window jumping and still claim they're a reality-based sit-com. Slick, that.
