“How I Met Your Father” (created by the writing team of Isaac Aptaker and Elizabeth Berger, who also adapted the TV series “Love, Victor” from the film “Love, Simon”) simply feels like a void — an absence where interesting characters or relatable scenarios or effective attempts at wit and charm should be.
One of the more downright disorienting series in recent memory. ... Not even Lowell, so capable on shows like “GLOW” and “Enlisted,” can overcome the musty characterization of “Uber driver weathering the humiliation of his failed proposal going viral.” That just about applies to every character and complication on “How I Met Your Father.” ... “How I Met Your Father” is just a bizarre exercise in recycling nostalgia for modern times without finding a way to be modern at all.
An inferior sequel. ... Filled with bad dialogue. ... Duff, though a likable, solid ensemble anchor, lacks Radnor’s exuberance, just as Sophie mostly lacks Ted’s impulsiveness.
