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.
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’!
