I love this show. I had watched it a couple of times out of sequence and wasn't that impressed, but then I watched an episode that was really funny and got hooked. So I ordered the first five seasons and I watch an episode a night. I love the cast. They're lovable and funny and there's never a dull moment. I can't wait to get the rest of the seasons as soon as they're available.

While there are some funny parts, I found that show was just a vehicle to have endless sex jokes/scenes.

Suit Up! Time to join Ted, Barney, and the crew for a great

"Told in a sort of flashback format, How I Met Your Mother follows the story of Ted (Josh Radner) and his group of friends, Marshall (Jason Segel), Lily (Alison Hannigan) and the ever hip Barney (Neil Patrick Harris). Ted is searching for romance in New York City when he falls for the lovely Robin (Cobie Smulders), who isn't quite ready for a big relationship, despite a strong attraction. Over the course of the first season, we follow Ted and company through many a hilarious night, including Barney and Marshall's karaoke binge with Korean Elvis, Ted's meeting a mysterious woman at a wedding who he subsequently falls for, and a hysterical look at Barney in his pre-suit era thanks to the arrival of a mystery tape from an old paramour.
The writing is sharp and fast paced, told in a multiple vignette style that Seinfeld perfected. Of course a hit show wouldn't work without a solid cast, and this one is excellent. Radner has the right blend of earnestness and puppy dog charm as he searches for true romance, Segel shows his excellent comic timing just as he did in shows like Freaks and Geeks and Undeclared, and Hannigan is completely right as Marshall's fiancee. Her blend of humor, elegance, and geek beauty is just perfect for the role. Smulders is a nice addition to the group, but its Neil Patrick Harris' turn as the bachelor extraordinaire Barney who is the real star of the show. The writers' equip him with catch-phrase heavy lines that are quickly becoming "legendary." The writers also leave a somewhat tantalizing mystery as to who Ted eventually marries.
The November release of the hit CBS comedy How I Met Your Mother continues the excellent trend of quickly releasing TV seasons to capitalize on an existing audience. The 1st Season DVD set contains all 22 half-hour episodes, six audio commentaries with cast and crew, a gag reel, and a video yearbook . This is the perfect gift for any fan of the show or a great way to introduce it to someone new. So Suit Up, and enjoy this great show. Recommended.
They Killed it with the Music

"I am a huge fan of this show. I think it's extremely well written and I love all of the actors. These DVDs really do not do the program justice. They contain almost none of the original music from the aired episodes. It is all replaced with crappy filler that sounds like something you'd hear in an elevator. CBS only played for 2 real songs because they were necessary to the story. The music that they used to replace the original sounds like tracks that would come with iMovie because they are free to license. The lack of music makes some scenes just plain awkward at times. It seriously hurts the moments. The episodes completely lack the same emotional punches as the ones that aired. For example in "The Slutty Pumpkin" the perfectly placed Nada Surf song "Inside of Love" is gone and the episode's ending feels abrupt. In the episode "Okay Awesome" most of it takes place in a dance club. The cheap music that is now used feels completely out of place. The original episode sounded like they were in a club, the replaced music is just strange an unfitting. I was really disappointed by this because I really enjoy this show and wanted to introduce friends to it using this DVD set. It's just not the same. I'd rather watch the episodes on the internet now. The picture may be blurry but at least it's the real show."
Great sitcom that deserves DVD release

"This is a great TV show currently out right now. The show is about a middle-aged man, Ted Mosby, who tells the story to his teenage children of how he met their mother. This is easily one of the best shows of the decade. The humor and sexual innuendo are outrageously funny. The narration of the story to his children shows a sentimental spark. It is definitely a great DVD set for those who enjoy modern 21st century humor or have a special place in the heart for a special someone."
