How I Met Your Mother. Season One

Why does the most loser character get to sit on the couch?
Hooray for single people!

How I Met Your Mother is like the coolest TV show on dating. And it works well with eighties kids, as that's the same age these people are.

I mean, sure I can relate, since Marshall is a second year law student, like me. But the real reason I can relate is because of the love angle. The Ted-Robin love angle, not the Marshall-Lily one.

Reasons to watch it:

1. Cobie Smulders as Robin Scherbatsky. Cobie Smulders is cute. Pretty. Gorgeous. Hot. Cobie Smulders is probably every straight guy's fantasy. Oooh...Cobie Smulders.

2. Neil Patrick Harris as Barney Stinson. Say no more. The undisputed gold mine of quotable quotes in entertainment today. NPH (you only get your name in acronyms if you're really cool, and Neil Patrick Harris is beyond cool) is so quick and witty that I think more than half of his jokes are unscripted, coming straight from the top of his head. If every one of NPH's quotes were put on a t-shirt, you'd have at least one t-shirt for every day of the week. At least. And that's just season one.

But first, let's appreciate the fact that the show wouldn't be a success without the rest of the team. But still, I only watch it for Cobie Smulders, and Doogie Howser's quotes. And the Ted-Robin romance.

Oh, and one last note: Season One isn't about how I met your mother. It's about how I met your Aunt Robin. But you'd have to stay tuned for the other seasons to find out who the real mother is.

How I Met Your Mother (Season One). USA. 2006-2007.

Rating: Eight out of ten.


H.I.M.Y.M. feels like a worthy successor to the throne left by F*R*I*E*N*D*S (which WAS a worthy successor to the throne left by CHEERS!). Nakakatuwa nga ang HIMYM, it's funny, the storytelling is quirky, it's solid and consistent.

now that you've pointed it out, it does resemble F*R*I*E*N*D*S (is this the way it's really spelled?). actually, my brother also noticed the similarity. i seem to be the only one who didn't. :(
