Well Shucks, There Are Still Worthwhile Shows on TV

Yes, I’m even talking other than 30 Rock. Enter How I Met Your Mother.

If you’re never checked it out, How I Met Your Mother is an Emmy-nominated comedy on CBS in its 5th season. And if you have, well, good choice, friend. It’s a tale of five 20-something friends, and  ultimately, a love story in reverse.

Personally, I find the lead character, Ted Mosby (Josh Radnor), to be quite a jerk, but the other characters more than make up for him being such a selfish whiner. Marshall Erikson (Jason Segel) makes the show for me, outside of the times when I remember that thanks to Forgetting Sarah Marshall I’ve seen him naked.

And this is why Marshall will keep you watching.

And this is why Marshall will keep you watching.

Anyway, it’s future Ted (who goes unseen) telling his two kids the story of how he met their mother–without sparing any details. Also featuring Alyson Hannigan, Cobie Smulders and an utterly ridiculous but brilliantly executed Neil Patrick Harris. Oh and wait, did I mention that the narrator is Bob Saget? What whaaaat.

Check it out if you’re bored on a Monday night like this one (Mondays, 8pm EST) or, hit up the DVDs like I’ve been doing. (Hey, thanks technology!) New season premiers September 21st so get crackin’!

    Marshall’s my favorite character, too. He’s a great guy. I’m glad I’m not the only one who thinks Ted is a jerk. I hope he’s not supposed to be some dream guy because he is whiny and pretentious. Plus the whole concept of the show to me is annoying. It’s one of my favorite shows, but can you imagine being those kids and listening to what must be a several-day-long story, if not months long? Yikes

    Also, how about when Lily did what she did to Marshall in 2006? I hated her for that. She was a grinch for doing that haha
