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).

What's wrong with this review?

Let us know why you think this review is inappropriate.


It is a little better than most other sitcoms, past and present -- especially those featuring wacky urban friends in their twenties experiencing the bittersweet mysteries of life. Some episodes lackluster but it does pass the time when needed, I'm slightly surprised Jason Segal stuck with it as he is such a good actor/ comedian. However, the comedy that does occur in How I Met Your Mother isn't enough to compensate for its inconsistencies.
