How I Met Your Mother

My Rating - 8.5/10

It's one of the few sitcoms to properly incorporate an intelligent plot and character development along with slapstick humour, womanizing humour, emotional romances, and a little bit of mystery. As the show progresses, the audience are shown clues as to the possible identity of Ted's wife. This of course, not only encourages discussion of the show, but keeps the viewer guessing, until probably the very end. You really get a lot of enjoyment watching this show from the fact that you're just watching a bunch of cooky friends hanging out. One of my favourite things about the show is its constant references to past episodes. Things that are mentioned in passing are always revisited in later episodes. Also the show seems to have a strong relationship with real life media. Often websites mentioned in the show actually appear on the internet, as well as Barney's blog and Barney's "The Bro Code". Overall, a tremendously funny show and one of most enjoyable sitcoms I've seen in a long time.

  3. I follow HIMYM since the first season when some friends recommended it to me. Very funny show.I think because of money they're making it run longer than intended, I dunno. I feel we should be a little further in the story.
