My husband and I love this show. He didn't care for it all that much at first, but the characters quickly grew on him and now we both enjoy watching an episode at least every other night. They're funny but good actors too and the theme is different.

Starting to slip a little, but still very funny

"PLEASE NOTE: This review contains SPOILERS.
I've been a fan of How I Met Your Mother from Day One, so I don't use a phrase like "starting to slip a little" lightly. But the fact is, season three just doesn't quite measure up to the previous two.
The main problem, as I see it, is that the writers felt the need to create ongoing conflict between the core group of friends. Sure, conflict is necessary to keep things interesting. But I think the ensemble in this show is better served by external conflicts (e.g., Barney and Ted's various problems with the opposite sex, Marshall's work-related stress, etc.). Watching Ted and Robin try to one-up each other after a painful breakup last season was. . .well, not that funny. Later in the season, Ted and Barney's friendship was on the rocks.
Otherwise, there were plenty of well-written and funny shows. Here's a few highlights:
"Slapsgiving" pays off the long-running joke from last season's "Slap Bet." "We're Not From Here" allows Barney and Ted to cut loose, posing as out-of-towners. "How I Met Everyone Else" introduces us to a classic Barney Stinson gimmick: The Crazy/Hot Scale. "Ten Sessions" introduces Ted's major love interest Stella (Sarah Chalke), probably his most memorable girlfriend since season one's Victoria. His manic (and successful) attempt at a two-minute date is probably the high point of the season. "Sandcastles in the Sand" brings back Robin Sparkles. . .and culminates in an ending so shocking, you'll be grateful you don't have to wait another week to see what comes next.
I guess it's fair to say the good outweighs the not-so-good in season three. At its heart, How I Met Your Mother is the longest tease in television history (yet a few tantalizing clues as to the identity of "mother" are dropped this year). I hope they can keep it fresh awhile longer, even though the inherent illogic of its premise (just how long have Ted's kids been sitting on that couch listening to Bob Saget?) may soon start weighing heavily even on fans like myself.
Getting better all the time

"I've read a sampling of reviews for Season 3, most stating that 3 isn't as strong as Season 2; I heartily disagree. Season 2 felt disjointed, like filler to me (though of course I still loved it!), but Season 3 keeps the story moving forward. I like that the characters are maturing, unlike the Friends characters who irritated me acting early 20's well into their 30's. There's a natural progression here, that includes some sentiment and drama in addition to the comedy. I simply love this show~ BRAVO to the entire team that creates and excecutes it."
HIMYM - The Legendary Season Three!
Servo | Atlanta, GA USA | 07/28/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)
"The HIMYM gang [again guided by director Pam Fryman] returns with 20 more legendary episodes in How I Met Your Mother - Season Three. When Season 2 of How I Met Your Mother ended, Marshall and Lily had finally hooked back up (and tied the knot), but Ted and Robin had suddenly split up. The situations were reversed when Season 1 ended. Season Three picks up sometime later after Season Two with Robin introducing her new Argentinean lover, Gael (Enrique Iglesias) to the gang and Ted hooking up with a wild tattooed woman (Mandy Moore) after going out to party with Barney. The end result from that encounter later leads Ted (in "Ten Sessions") to a chance meeting with Stella (Sarah Chalke, fresh from NBC's recently ended Scrubs), a dermatologist and possible "mother" candidate who he falls for in the season's most engaging story arc. Props must be given to the series creators for the attention to continuity featured each season as past acquaintances (Trudy from Season One's "The Pineapple Incident" returns with a tempting opportunity for Ted in "Third Wheel") and plot devices ("The Goat" from Season One's "Milk" and Season Two's "Slap Bet" in "Slapsgiving") are revisited this season with hilarious results. Guest stars include Britney Spears (in a comeback role and the show's highest rated episode ever), Danica McKellar ("The Wonder Years"), Busy Philipps ("Dawson's Creek," "ER"), Maggie Wheeler ("Friends"), James Van Der Beek ("Dawson's Creek"), Wayne Brady ("Whose Line Is It, Anyway?"), Will Forte ("Saturday Night Live") and models Heidi Klum, Marisa Miller, Alessandra Ambrosio, Selita Ebanks and Adriana Lima.

How I Met Your Mother - Season Three Highly Recommended! "

"Season 3 has been a very awkward time for HIMYM fans... But over all was a very great season. It started off very strong and i believe that thhe writers strike affected this show in a very bad way... But all in all it turned out to be an amazing season. I just felt that they had too many filler episodes and not enough plot. And when they finally did a plot running they ran out of time. Still the writers never cease to amaze me... They dropped alot of classics and alot of hints towards who the mother is.. but knowing HIMYM it will not go the route every one expects it to go. and i believe this is the reason i have continued to watch and i recommend not only that buy, but let a friend watch as well. Chance are you and your friend will become as addicted to this show as i am..."

"Though I could've done without the stunt casting of Britney, How I Met Your Mother Season 3 didn't disappoint! (Plus, since it came back post-strike there are more episodes than a lot of series, so more bang for your buck!) This series continues to be one of my favorites that I can watch over & over whenever I need a little pick me up! Highly recommend it!!"
