Towards the end of 2011 I started watching How I Met Your Mother on Netflix. I’ve always heard great things about this TV Show but never watched it since CBS doesn’t put its shows on Hulu AND the online player that they have is ancient.
How I Met Your Mother is a story told by Ted – the main character – to his two children, about how he met their mother, except he tells the long version. Ted and his four friends – Lily and Marshall, who have been together for years, Robin, who they met at the beginning of the series and Barney, the womanizing, high-functioning sociopath with a soft spot for his friends.
I think what I like about HIMYM is the fact that each episode *can* stand alone, however, there are tidbits that run through the entire series based on past episodes – the yellow umbrella, slapsgiving, etc. – which add a different layer to the show. I don’t know when this series will end, I just hope they don’t draw it out until it’s so boring that the finale is anticlimactic, and while I know I’d want to see more, I hope that it ends on Ted meeting his wife, after all, that would be the absolute best =)
