People talking about nothing nine years long. This is what this series is. A totally meaningless, empty series with dumb jokes.
It represents how undemanding the American TV-watching audience is. People in Hollywood made a film exactly like this, called Definitely, Maybe. It was also dull, I could barely watch it, the only good point in it was the cute little child in it.
Thank Nature I only have seen a few bits from this. Terrible boredom is how I could describe it. It doesn't matter if I watch it or not, watching it is like anything else, like scratching my balls, meh, I scratch it, but even if I'm not, it will pass away from itself eventually. If I'm doing it it's fine, if not, I loose absolutely nothing.
Very inappropriate stuff relating to Jesus, who is, for the record, God, for many of us. (Discussion about how Jesus set the standard for "waiting for 3 days". Christians don't appreciate associating Him with crass humor about sex. Too bad - the general theme of this comedy is good, great acting, and I've seen some worthy shows. But you lost me tonight. In the future, I'll make sure these writers are NOT contributors to comedies I chose to let my family watch.
I think the longest I have been able to watch this show is a few minutes -
Hint - A comedy needs to be funny.
Perhaps all the American writers have been outsourced and they have hired Indians or Chinese who don't have a clue about what is actually funny.
Also - this isn't a true representation of New York Life. True New Yorkers that aren't uber wealthy, don't have time to hang out in bars for hours on end with their friends - they are too busy working late and trying to miss the next slew of layoffs. Friends was more realistic - because the only kind of social life most working New Yorkers have is with the people they live with.
I don't get the infatuation with this show. I've watched numerous episodes simply because my friends somehow like it and reruns are ALWAYS on. Like pretty much all CBS sitcoms ever, it's unbearably unfunny. Generally speaking, about midway through the show I turn my attention to the nearest wall and consider ramming my head against it repeatedly. If I ever meet a real Ted Mosby, I might just break his neck. Not even joking.
Seriously ....HIMYM used to be my Best Show ever ....until it started being a complete disaster ...seriously people ain't laughing any more ..... U guys suck big time . Learn some from Two and a half men (BEfore Ashton)
This series was stretched so long because telling the kids how he hooked up would end the series. "Stuff I did before you were born" would be more appropriate. I don't even watch it anymore. It's fruitless. Get Doogey Howser and his ego out of there. In the real world, he wouldn't last very long.
What? Did some of you compare this lame sitcom with Friends? Seriously? I can watch Friends over and over even till it bores me or annoys me and yet I can still watch it... I have never been able to watch one episode of How I met your mother.
The cast is pretentious, sexually immature and a total bore. And even writing this review I have just realised I am getting bored paying this much attention to a review for a sitcom that will be on my damn TV for the next decade making me wish I did not pay my TV Licence followed by an instant spontaneous twist in my wrist evoking a swift channel change. OK the damn review requests 100 WORDS.. HMMmm here goes - Ingredients for Cupcakes:
150 g butter, softened
150 g sugar
3 eggs, beaten
150 g self-raising flour, sifted
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tbsp milk
For the frosting:
75 g butter, at room temperature
150 g icing sugar
1 tbsp milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
a selection of food colouring, choose your favourite colours
crystallised flower petals, (optional), See Cook's note
silver balls, (optional)
hundreds and thousands, (optional)
1. Preheat the oven to 180C/160C fan/ gas 4. 2. Cream together the butter and sugar until light, fluffy and pale. 3. Gradually mix in the beaten egg alternating with the flour to stop the mix from curdling. Finally, stir through the vanilla extract and milk. 4. Place 12 paper cupcake cases into a muffin tin and divide the mixture between them. 5. Bake for 15-20 minutes until golden and springy to the touch. Remove from the oven and cool on a wire rack. 6. For the frosting: In a mixing bowl beat the butter with a spoon or spatular until smooth, then start to sift in the icing sugar, stirring regularly. Add the vanilla extract and milk. The frosting should be light and creamy. 7. Mix your chosen food colouring colours into the icing to give an even colour. 8. Once the cupcakes are totally cool, spoon or pipe the icing onto your cupcakes and finish with your chosen decorations. Then allow to set for at least 30 minutes.
This is one of the worst scripted shows in recent television history.Everyone talks at each other using one-line zingersthat fall flat, but the laugh track says the line was supposed to be funny. The characters don't seem to really like each other, but are just waiting to unleash that next zinger. Also, the motivation of the characters is insane. On one episode, one of the females rushes to her tv news desk to announce that she is quittingher job live on the air. You would never work again in television if you actually did that (you might not work anywhere after that). She is unconcerned about the consequences of this act, and the other characters act like it's just a set-up for another crummy one-liner. I used to think that Two and a Half Men had the most idiotic scripts, but How I Met Your Mother surpasses even that one for ineptitude. This is a good show for maintaining a dietary regimen, though. You may lose the will to eat (or live) watching this garbage.
I accidentally turned to this show, sometime I had to tune to the station and muted it before two and Half Men came on. Barney is a terrible actor and his pretended and exaggerated facial expression and humor are much worst than Jim Carrey. I obsolutely could not stand short Lily, one of the worst actress in TV, probably she looked too young to play the part. Ted is not much better, his acting also sucked. The whole cast of this show exaggerated their dialogs and looked like they allread right off the script. I didn't know how could they survived so long since 2005.
It is shocking thing to acknowledge, but it has been going on for quite a few chapters now: this series has gotten so ultra-conservative-preachy to a level that reminds us the worst Bill Cosby. The very beginning of this chapter is a riot, where Barney - as usual, the best of the pack - is HUGE with all his no-father's day antics. But then, when they deal with the subject of having or not having kids, among all the half-cooked jokes, prevails the idea that not having kids is just the choice of: a) A loser whom nobody loves (let alone have children with)
b) A psycho (because everyone loves babies: let's make a caricature of Robin!)
c) An ice queen with no heart.
Why the need to disrespect people? Yeah, sure, it's a comedy, but let's not forget that, at the ending, they show clearly (and gruesomely) that even the sock-holding Robin or the karaoke-drunken Barney DO want to have children (subtlety, anyone?).
Once more, Ted Mosby points his finger in a way that would embarrass Bill Cosby, and this has been going on since the beginning of season 3.
PS: This is not the only chapter to pursue an ultra conservative agenda. The the scathing attack on the Woo Girls (They hate you because you are married ant that makes them jealous), the cheesy Read-this-girl-a-tale-and-you'll-realize-how-great-is-to-live-in-Jersey or how-sad-is-to hang-out-drunken-with-Barney...
Seriously, do a Barney spinoff an any of us will be relieve no to hear Ted's sermons again.
Hold it, that already exists: the highly superior "Two and a Half Men".
this show is just an accident waiting to happen. this show has no meaning and i cant believe people actually think this show is funny.......this is just a remake of everybody loves raymond.....except everybody loves raymond was funny! wow....this show is going downhill fast and please cancel it! this show follows a guy and his wife and kids and how they met.....and wow. how can you be so stupid? and how coudl you make a show out of that? bam! they say hi i\\\'m whoever, you go on a date, you start dating, and thats all! your married......so please take my advice...cover your ears!
I honestly do not know how anyone can sit through a full episode of this show. It is TERRIBLE! I went into this show with an open mind and after just 2 painful episodes, I've got this show pegged as a loser. Also, please don't compare this show to "Arrested Development", AD is light years beyond this pile of garbage. The writing in "How I met your mother" is bad, the actual delivery of the one liners could be worse than the writing and when it's all packaged up, it has the same appeal to me as the sound of a dentist drill.
How i meet your mother isn't alone being average,The New Adventures Of Old Christine is the same while Caveman been absolute garbage.Everybody Hates Chris,Ugly Betty,Samantha Who? 30 Rock are all dull.
I've watched a lot of Sit Coms going back to the 50s with Amos "N Andy,I Love Lucy,The Honeymooners to the 60s Get Smart,Hogans Heroes,The Beverly Hillbillies and others. The 70s with Happy Days,Taxi,Three's Company,The Odd Couple and Mary Tyler Moore and others.
The 80s legend Cheers,Married With Children,Perfect Strangers,Sledgehammer to name a few.
The 90s Frasier,Wings,Coach,Seinfeld,Everybody Loves Raymond,Titus and others now with this decade most have been crap or just o.k.
How i meet your mother is rather ordinary,weak on the laughs,no slapstick,the actors are rather boring,more a drama then comedy and some of the episodes have been really sad for a Sit Com.
Now c'mon Barney,lol,anyone who is straight just laughs as a womaniser like Women would fall for him,lol.
Their really isn't any characters in this.Most people who really like this are probably young spoilt yuppies who don't know comedy and just act like these people.
Any TV sit com that use Britney Spears to give them ratings,must be pretty bad.C'mon people,wake up is Britney Spears funny.George Bush would be funnier then her at least he walks like Maxwell Smart and may blow something up like him,lol.
the only reason i watched himym so long was to finally get closure on this series, which stopped being funny with season 4. Some episodes afterwards made me smile now and then.. but honestly.. the former humorous insights into NYC culture and lifestyle have become a thing of the distant past. characters aren't evolving but regress to some level of cheesy monotonous marriage crazed two dimensional beings. The former cocky portrayal of modern social life has become nothing more than the usual routine of traditional american way of married life. So... sad...
Watched three episodes, didn't laugh once, not once. This show is worst than a poor mans' 'Friends'; its not even in the same hemisphere as 'Friends', and yet it try's so hard to be like it. It's r even worst when you have a well-known homosexual like Neal Patrick Harris playing (over the top and completely unconvincingly, I might add), an over-sexed, womanizing letch - there's not that much acting in the world to get us to believe that. And yet, it's in syndication. Go figure.
I just don't get the attraction of this show, it looks like it suppose to be aimed at people who think they're "mature" its drivel, and any time i see that Neil Patrick Harris i have an overwhelming urge to punch him.
Well, "noway746", criticise me for disliking a show which feels the need to remind us every -3.0363 seconds that boys like girls, girls like boys, boys have penises and girls have vaginas, but you have absolutely no basis for critising me for liking The Simpsons. Do you want to know why, or were you just mocking my love for the greatest television show in history because you know you're wrong and you don't have any legitimate criticism to offer?
And if you actually think that I called this show "unsuccessful", then you are seriously one huge idiot because if you spend more than half a second glancing at my review you'll notice that I said "...the fact that show show IS REASONABLY SUCCESSFUL" not "unsuccessful".
But...haha...then I just remind my self that there's no point arguing with a bunch of people who think this watered down version of Friends (which was actual comedy) is more pointless than writing out the entire dictionary on a notebook just so you have a spare. Why don't you guys just buy some tissues, rent Friends or YES, THE SIMPSONS, and cry your hearts out over the sight of actual comedy - something you're clearly so unfamiliar with.
I think that should be the new title. I used to love this show, but it is progressively getting worse and worse. They probably should have ended this show about two seasons ago. Or before Marshal and Lilly had their baby. It really is a shame.
After this last episode, I have now dropped my rating from 4 to 2.5, which just happens to be the magic number where I drop a show that I once enjoyed. Bye Bye HIMYM, we had some good times.
I've probably only seen a few episodes of this show, and thats how it will stay for me. It is just a typical new American 'comedy'.
However, It isn't as bad as 'That 70's Show'.
I realize that to some people this show is great, and thats completely fine, absolutely everyone has different tastes. This show isn't clever, and I just hate this type of show, and everyone is entitled to a different opinion. This is mine.
ps. You can disagree all you want, I don't care, it will never change my mind or my opinion of this show, and it CERTAINLY won't change the fact that this show is pure rubbish.
