  • Summary: How I Met Your Mother is a comedy about Ted (Josh Radnor) and how he fell in love. It all starts when Ted's best friend, Marshall (Jason Segel), drops the bombshell that he's going to propose to his long-time girlfriend, Lily (Alyson Hannigan), a kindergarten teacher. At that moment, Ted realizes that he had better get a move on if he too hopes to find true love. Helping him in his quest is Barney (Neil Patrick Harris), a friend with endless, sometimes outrageous opinions, a penchant for suits and a foolproof way to meet women. When Ted meets Robin (Cobie Smulders), he's sure it's love at first sight, but destiny may have something else in store. The series is narrated through flashbacks from the future.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. The best season from How I Met Your Mother for me. Some outrageous comedy, stupidly funny romance and much more makes this worth watching. The way in which the dopplegangers and the LIly pregnancy storyline unravels is marvelous. Expand

    HIMYM Season 5 is really great. The whole cast delivers great acting and a bunch of one liners. Some of my favorite episodes are Double Date, Robin 101, The Sexless Innkeeper, Duel Citizenship, The Playbook, Slapsgiving 2, The Window, The Perfect Week, Hooked, Twin Beds, Robots vs. Wrestlers, The Wedding Bride, and Doppelgangers. This was another solid season. Overall Score= 85/100 Expand

    This season felt like an experiment to me. The experiment being whether or not the writers could prolong this incredibly popular series without (but certainly hinting at) developing the title storyline. The simple answer is no, they can't. I believe How I Met Your Mother will be an unfortunate lesson for all future writers. Don't base an entire show on a closed-ended premise like this. If it is something people will constantly want to know then holding out will just frustrate the viewers. Expand
