PizzaJedi81: the_rev: PizzaJedi81: Angry Drunk Bureaucrat: Vash's Apprentice: Carth: People realized it is Friends set in a bar instead of a coffee shop? Friends was really popular too back in the day.

Friends is just Seinfeld set in a coffee shop instead of a diner.

Seinfeld was just Cheers set in a diner instead of a bar.

Cheers was Sanford & Son in a bar instead of a dump.

Sanford & Sons was just Taxi in a dump instead of a taxi station.

Sanford & Son, January 14, 1972

Taxi, September 12, 1978

You were saying?


Sex & the City was just Mr. Ed... oh wait.

rikkards: redmid17: texdent: cryinoutloud: texdent: I enjoy the show, but at this point I just want to know who the damn mother is..as well as who Barney gets married to.

Robin's the mother. At the end of it all, Ted is going to end up with her.

Nice theory except in the beginning, he said that Robin was their 'aunt'.

And the fact she can't have kids

Who says they aren't adopted?


Then the show would be called 'How I Met Your Adopted Mother and Why Your Parents Didn't Want You'

Teenwolf: Friends is just Seinfeld set in a coffee shop instead of a diner.

Seinfeld was just Cheers set in a diner instead of a bar.

Cheers was Sanford & Son in a bar instead of a dump.

Sanford & Sons was just Taxi in a dump instead of a taxi station.

And Taxi was just Star Trek on a spaceship instead of in a taxi station.

And Star Trek was just The Jetsons set in 3d instead of 2d.

And Jetsons was just Flintstones in the future.

And the Flintstones was just the Honeymooners in cartoon form.

And the Honeymooners were just Abbot and Costello with wives.

And Abbot & Costello were just Rosencrantz and Guildenstern as main characters instead of supporting characters.

And Rosencrantz and Guildenstern were just Jonathon and David from the Book of Samuel in comedic form.

So really, How I Met Your Mother is just a modern day Bible story.


Which is based on the Bro-Code.

Get it straight. Friends is Living Single with white people instead of black people.

Because it sucked?

Just kidding...it got in the way of half of the cast being Scientologists.

Suddenly, How I Met Your Mother has become the most-watched show on CBS.

The 20 million or so people who watch this every week would probably beg to differ.

Linkage: I watched the first season on netflix, then skimmed the wiki on the rest.
Seems like the same old re-harshed shiat that 90% of sitcoms do.
Went back to Farscape reruns.


How can I be as cool as you?

They stumbled a few times. In fact, every time they attempt to add another character to the core cast, it goes downhill. The story arc with Ted and Stella almost made me abandon the series altogether, although it did have its moments (it did give us "The Wedding Bride"). The two times they tried adding in a "Robin's boyfriend" character were unmitigated disasters. Kal Penn, who is actually a pretty good comedic actor, bombed. And the episodes where she falls for her no-ambition co anchor Don just annoyed me. Again, they both had their moments (e.g. the "here's how it happened" episode where Barney starts/ends up in the East River), but in the main they mostly stunk.

Will How I Met Your Mother ever get their "Cousin Oliver" without ruining the chemistry of the main cast? Hard to say. So far, though, they've failed.

Wait- did I just admit to knowing way to much about a rom-com TV series? Dangit, there goes my man card.

PizzaJedi81: It's, um...a good show?


I had no interest in watching it for years. Never even caught a re-run. Then recently watched the first 6 seasons on Netflix and I am totally hooked.

Should have known anything with Neil P. Harris in it would be funny.
