How I Met Your Mother is one of the best comedy sitcoms ever! It ended a few years back, and people (including me and my husband) still quote the show, and continue to watch the re-runs! After watching just a few episodes, there is a good chance you find yourself being sucked in and becoming addicted to the hilarious story line and characters!
How I Met Your Mother was nine seasons of listening to Ted share with his teens, how he met his wife, their mom. There are tons of twists and turns in his love story on and it was definitely an adventure to find the love of his life. He has a great group of friends in his life and their shenanigans will keep you entertained during every single episode. It is argued who is the best character, Lily, Robin, Marshall, Ted or Barney!
8 Reasons Why How I Met Your Mother is the Best Show Ever
It’s hilarious: This show will have you laughing from beginning to end. Some of the story lines are absolutely outrageous and will leave you thinking that they could only happen to one of the gang. Plus, who doesn’t want to unwind after a long day with a hilarious comedy!
Barney Stinson: For good reason, he is one of the most popular characters on the show. From the Bro Code to The Playbook to the Hot Crazy Scale, you will learn exactly how not to get a girl by watching Barney on this show. Oh and we can’t forget his famous quote, “Legen-waitforit-dary”! Lily and Marshall even gave their first born “waitforit” as a middle name thanks to Barney.
It keeps you Wondering: For eight seasons, you are left you wondering who Ted finally married. The show definitely does a good job of keeping you guessing along the way, in hopes that you might finally learn who his mystery woman was.
Marshmallow and Lilypad (aka Lily and Marshall): One of the best couples ever, they love each other so much. They started dating back in college, survived many ups and downs, got married and then kids. My husband and I want to be them when we grow up.
Awesome Quotes: Like I said before, this is one popular show that people still quote after it is long gone. It has some awesome quotes like “Legen-dary”, “Suit Up” and more. If anyone has watched the show, they know exactly what you are saying when you quote it.
Search for Love: Who doesn’t love a good love story! This takes you down a journey of finding your one true love. You might have some bumps along the road, but hopefully in the end we all find true happiness. Ted is a real love sick man and he finally finds “the one”, but not before dating his way through New York City.
They are Always There for Each Other: One thing that is great about this sitcom, is it shows how great their friendships are. No matter what happens in their lives, they always have each others backs.
You will fall in Love with Characters: Each character on the show has their own quirks and it’s part of what makes the show great. From Barney making fun of Robin for being Canadian to Marshall’s love of Big Foot, you will get sucked into each and every story line and really start to feel invested in their “lives”. You will find yourself beginning to root for your favorite characters to find happiness or find the success they are looking for!
One of my favorite things is that nothing is left hanging. There is an episode in which Ted mentions that there is a goat in his bathroom, but says that he will give the kids the full story later. Sure enough, a few episodes later we got to hear the story. By the end of the series, everything has been wrapped up nicely and you will be updated on all of the recurring characters and where they ended up after their encounters with Ted and the gang.
Guess what? You can stream the entire series on Netflix, so if you missed it, you can binge on it this weekend. And trust me, it’s definitely binge-worthy.
