Jan 21, 2022For a show that is trying to be relatable and real in 2022 its a little astounding that they wouldn't mention COVID or the realities of online dating in America today.
The zingers are often gag-inducing and none of the characters remotely plausible. Yet the show sparkles with such exuberance and lack of cynicism that I found myself laughing at the inanity of it all. Twenty five minutes flew by and, while I didn’t love this creaking comedy, I can’t quite say I hated it either.
“How I Met Your Father” misses all of that spark and feels like watching the copy of a copy of a copy. It’s enough to fulfill a nostalgic craving in the most superficial sort of way, but far too flimsy to do anything else.
We've seen this story before and better versions of it since life moved on, making the writers' choice to retrace its dated habits so odd.
