Good Series

This is a really good series, especially the early seasons. It's not as good as Parks and Rec, probably more along the lines of New Girl and The Big Bang Theory. At this point, this is likely on a streaming platform, so it may not warrant a purchase.

HIMYM - Season Two!
Verified purchase
Ted, Marshall, Lily, Robin and Barney. TV's quirkiest set of friends since NBC's [[ASIN:B000H6SXMY Friends]] are back with 22 more sensational episodes in How I Met Your Mother - Season Two. Following the Season One finale breakup of Marshall and Lily which resulted in Lily leaving for San Francisco on an art internship, leaving Marshall emotionally lost, Season Two opens with the gang helping Marshall cope with the void left by his "Lilypad" which, of course, leads to hilarious situations. Marshall unknowingly "dating" his friend from law school, Brad, who also recently broke up with his girlfriend in "World's Greatest Couple" comes to mind. Also returning for Season Two is director Pamela D. Fryman, who again guides the episodes (19 of 22) with her pitch perfect direction. As with Season One, all 22 episodes of How I Met Your Mother - Season Two are a delight and not to be missed. Guest stars this season include Michael Gross ("Family Ties"), Cristine Rose ("Heroes"), Jane Seymore ("Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman"), Bryan Cranston ("Malcolm in the Middle"), Wayne Brady ("Who's Line Is It, Anyway?") and Bob Barker ("The Price is Right"). How I Met Your Mother - Season Two is a 3-disc (484 min.) set featuring all 22 episodes from the 2006-2007 season; Anamorphic Widescreen (1.78:1) video; plus extras.

SPOILERS alert...especially IF you haven't seen the first season.

So this is Season 2 of HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER, and, thank the almighty chewtoy, they haven't let up on the funny. For me, the first season snuck up, although it didn't take too long before it became my current top sitcom. What sold me was the combination of great character dynamics, the off-beat, sometimes snarky humor, and that whiff of romance (that dude Ted can carry a hell of a torch). This gang were folks I could relate to - yes, even Barney, the unapologetically self-absorbed misogynist who still somehow wormed into my good graces. And, actually, even Barney came thru for his buds when the chips were down.

The premise of HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER states that Ted, sometime in the future, will meet the woman of his dreams. In Season 2 Bob Saget returns to reprise his voice-over role of future Ted as he persists in regaling his kids with the convoluted story of how he met their mother. What the show tantalizingly fails to reveal is the mom's identity, and the how and the when. And Season 2 keeps us in suspense. Starting with last season's finale and leading into the Season 2 opener, things have changed some. Lily and likable goof Marshall are no longer engaged, and Marshall is extremely resentful. But Ted and Robin are now an item. Barney, though, is still a raging womanizer. This status quo would remain for several episodes. The show makes no bones about Robin not being the mother of future Ted's kids, so, it was a fun yet bittersweet time watching Robin and Ted go thru the ups and downs of their romance.

In a very good sophomore season, most of the episodes are solid and several sparkle. "Slap Bet" (my favorite, and, it seems, everyone else's) dredges up something embarassing from Robin's past, as well as introduces a wagering system paid up in vicious slaps. "Ted Mosby, Architect" focuses on Robin's disdain for Ted's vocational small talk and on Barney handing Ted a great pick-up line, which he then runs away with. In "Swarley" Barney, to his dismay, is saddled with a nickname (for [[ASIN:B0000AQS0F Firefly - The Complete Series]] fans, Morena Baccarin guest stars as Marshall's crazy-eyed date). Finally, "Showdown" has Barney competing in The Price Is Right and meeting his dad, Bob Barker.

Pretty good special features here: The gag reel is definitely worth checking out; there's the 17-minute-long "How We Make Your Mother" segment in which key scenes are shown in read thrus, in rehearsal, and, finally, in the actual shooting (this one showcases a truly awesome moment for two of the extras); commentaries on 7 episodes ("Where Were We," "Swarley," "Slap Bet," "Single Stamina," "Arrivederci Fiero," "Bachelor Party," and "Showdown"); additional scenes for "Moving Day" (more of Barney's Top Ten list, hilarious!), "Showdown" (Barney's Best Man speech), and "Bachelor Party" (extra footage of the adult entertainer, but it's not all that); the wonderfully cheesy Robin Sparkles video in its entirety; and the weird "Hey Beautiful" video, which contains the show's hummable theme tune (I say "weird" because the video borrows clips from the show and then superimposes lips singing the song lyrics over the mouths of the show's characters).

HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER is a well-constructed show and effortlessly navigates a spectrum of tones, from madcap to poignant, from romantic to subversive. The likable cast maintains its comfy chemistry, although the go-to guy for laughs remains the pitch perfect Neil Patrick Harris and his outrageously weasely character Barney. If nothing else, Barney's certainly introduced into the sitcom lexicon phrases such as "Suit up" and "Awesome!" Oh, and one more. With some help from Wayne Brady and a cameo by former Dallas Cowboy running back Emmett Smith, HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER Season 2 is funny and warm and unpredictable, not to mention, simply legen - wait for it! - dary.

Nice Surprise!
Verified purchase
Before I started to watch this show, I had never seen a single episode. Being a fan of Alyson Hannigan, I had to give it a chance. As soon as I got the first season, I had to watch the second and the third. The show's charm has endeared itself to me, and it has that special something that makes a sitcom really special. It can be funny and have moments of silent curiosity... And what I mean by that is when they talk about the never seen but always talked about 'mother', you can't help but wonder who she is. And like the ending to a good movie, you have to know who she is, and how she factors into the wonderful group of characters that has been developed on the series. Fitting together like puzzle pieces, this is a group of friends I could follow around for a long time to come.

I have loved all seasons of HIMYM

I have loved all seasons of HIMYM. Actually started watching them after the show finale. I had watched a few episodes here and there in the beginning and never could get interested: I thought the Barney character in particular was unlikeable and unbelievable. Was I ever wrong. I have seen every single episode in order and watched more repeat episodes than I care to admit. Barney is hands down my favorite character but they are all good. Such good acting, such good directing; a wonderfully put together show. Maybe it all reminds me of when I was that age and had a group of five friends: three girls and two guys. We just had a blast together and I ended up marrying one of the guys:)

How I Met How I Met Your Mother
Verified purchase
I pretty much avoided CBS sitcoms. Scrubs, Arrested Development, 30 Rock, that's what I liked. They seemed all non-typical and when looking at the string of Monday night shows on CBS they appeared to be so pedestrian. I realize that might make me sound like a jerk, but that's fine. I might be a jerk.

I had been prodded by several groups of friends for a long time to watch How I Met Your Mother. "You should watch" was usually followed by, "You're exactly like Barney." Barney is played by Neil Patrick Harris, and while I appreciate being compared to TV royalty like His Doogie-ness, I still wasn't buying it.

With a string of fantastically funny movies turned in by Jason Segel and a rekindled love affair with Freaks and Geeks, I thought "Why not? If I don't like it, I can blame my friends for years to come."

So, I purchased season one. It took several episodes to hone in on the pace of the show. It seemed very set-up-set-up-joke-laugh-track, exactly what I don't like. The main character, Ted, was very Ross Gellar-ish, which is to say whiny and annoying. However, not so distasteful that I immediately ejected the disc and burned in the microwave.

It was good to see Alyson Hannigan emerge from Buffy into a more widely palatable show. She deserved it. And Cobie Smulders was attractive enough to pique my interest. I think she even had lines at some point.

Once the show was set, around episode four or five and it was a fully baked How I Met Your Mother pie, I started to enjoy it. I caught myself laughing. It is pleasant and harmless, good humored and endearing. It out friended Friends. Ted's march toward true love was accessible and his hope kindled a small flame in my long-dead, cold heart. I liked it. Season one was quickly followed by purchases of two and three and being stuck wringing my hands waiting on season four.

Though, the comparisons to Barney started to sting. He's a jerk. Oh wait, I'm a jerk. Yet, he's a womanizer and a cad. I'm not that. I might like to be, but I'm not. Is that what my friends thought of me? In later episodes and later seasons they peel back the curtain on Barney. I breathed a sigh of relief. My friends didn't hate me. He's a truer person than that. He cares about his friends, but will rarely show it. OK, I'll accept that. I could be that guy.

And that's how I met How I Met Your Mother.

Season 2 of this hilarious show is even funnier than the first. It seems that the cast overall are having an absolute blast doing this show. You can feel everytime you watch an episode (actually several) because i can never watch just one episode and leave it at that. All the cast bring something to the show. Whether it's the jokes at the right time or just being there for each other in times of crisis. This show represents what it's like to have people (friends) in your life that look out for and have each other back regardless of what stupid thing you might have done or said. Its an excellent second season to a show that out to be on anyone's radar that's into comedy.

With excellent actors/actresses, well written scripts and just an incredible energy throughout each episode. How I Met Your Mother is something that all should watch. It makes me feel good that there are shows out there that bring it each and every episode.

Can't wait until Season 3 of this comes out on DVD. I'll be there with a quickness snatching this one.

Enjoy.

One word for this amazing show: LEGEN.....wait for it and I hope you're not lactose-intolerant because the next part of this word is...........DA(I)RY!!!

If you thought that line was corny, you need to watch this show because the actor who delivers it (Neal Patrick Harris) is at his best and corniest in this AWESOME show delivering lines you never thought could be passed off on a TV show. But this is by no means a one-man act....the whole main cast is absolutely funny and you are always amused, entertained, and intrigued by the silly and yet-so-new-york-like-life. And viewers always come back for more, not just for the humor and the story line but after all, don't we all want to know how Ted Mosby met the mother of his children? If you liked FRIENDs and SEINFELD, then you are going to absolutely LOVE this show!!!
