Taking place in a continual flashback narrated by the future Ted (Bob Saget) telling the story of the erstwhile Ted's (Josh Radnor) love life, How I Met Your Mother is a comedy about five friends living in New York City. The colorful cast of characters includes the sweet but boring couple, Lily (Alyson Hannigan) and Marshall (Jason Segel); the ex-love and Canadian, Robin (Cobie Smulders); and the fan-favorite sex addict, Barney (Neil Patrick Harris).

I think i am one of the few who genuinely loved the ending to this show. Was a perfect tv show for 9 years, ending on a high!

By the end, i was forcing myself to finish. I had invested so much time for a pretty unenlightened comedy. Sure bits of it were funny but i cant even think of a great bit.

If you were a fan of friends and love very identifiable characters that you have had in your life who are just uninspiring and mediocre this show may be for you.

It is absolutely for you if you do not have a sitcom in your life currently and haven't seen it and are a fan of sitcoms.

Can be a bit silly but hey isn't that why we love it? The ending was great, as much as it has been disputed, it was fun in many respects.

A really good show, but it should have ended earlier. In the last couple of seasons I was almost sad everytime when I heard that they will be filming more. Of course, I still watched it, but it felt pressured. Plus, the ending was a disgrace to the whole series, and if I knew in advance what was going to happen, I would have skipped the last part. The ending is also the reason I took away one star. Maybe I should have taken away even more, like four.

How i met your mother is the long story about Ted and his friends and how he met his wife, the mother. we wait long seasons to be revealed to her and then it ended. And the way it ended is the build up that could not get the proper ending that it wanted. Going back to the ex for me is always a sign of not being able to move on and this just goes to show that no matter what happens, you have to go back to the past. However, i was rooting for Barney and Robin and when they didnt get together, that was sad. and the ending of course was awful... the mother passed away and all.

Netflix heeft deze serie, dus maar weer eens herbekeken. 5 vrienden en hun relatie's is het thema van de serie. in de 9 jaar die de serie heeft gedraaid zijn er vele vaste grapjes en uitdrukkingen die blij - "wait for it"- ven hangen.
eerste 7 ses. zijn wel de beste en laatste ses die in 23 afl 1 weekend laat zien is erg uitgekauwd.
De hoofdpersoon van de serie (Ted) is trouwens het minst leuk/intressant De serie is vooral door Barney (Neil Patrick Harris) zo hilarisch geworden.

==========

Netflix has this series, so start to watch again. Five friends and their relationship's is the theme of the show. in the 9 years that the show was running, there are many solid jokes and expressions who keep comming - "wait for it" - back.
first 7 ses. are the best and last ses is very overused. Thay are jusing 23 afl. to show 1 weekend!
The head player of the series (Ted) is the least fun / intressant The series is mainly great becouse of Barney (Neil Patrick Harris) who makes the show so hilarious.

I would have given this show a 4.5 stars if it weren't for the finale, totally ruined the show!
