#37: HIMYM: Unreliable Narrator
One of the interesting aspects of the popular TV show How I Met Your Mother is that the entire thing is a story being told by the main character, Ted, to his children years after the story is all over and the incidents take place. That allows the showrunners to do a lot of fun things while hinting at future events.
But here’s an interesting thought that challenges the whole premise of the show: what if Ted can’t entirely be believed? When everything is being told from his point of view, is it possible that he’s an unreliable narrator and is tweaking things to make himself look better or to make other people look worse?
