I’ve been watching “How I Met Your Mother” a little too much lately. And man! I guess I’ve got too addicted to it.
Basically, it’s a TV sitcom about Ted – a dad who’s telling his children the story of how he met the love of his life. Throughout his story, there’s always the appearance of his 4 best friends: Barney – a real playboy who “slept with a girl and never called her again,” Robin – a Canadian girl whom Ted first thought to be someone he could imagine marrying to, Lily and Marshall – well, the happiest couple of the show.
Ted had gone through hundreds of dates, some serious and some not-so-awesome, before he finally met, fell in love and got married to the girl of his dream. His journey in love is obviously not easy, at all. Most of ours aren’t either. But the show’s made me feel that everything you’ve been through will worth it all once you get to see your complete match.
Their perfect smile. Your first kiss with them. The way they look at you as if nothing in the world could ever separate you apart. Their eyes when they told you the three most important words in your life…
Everything with that special person will be the memory you could never forget.
I think that’s how the series has drawn me into watching it at least 1 episode every single day.
I also like the idea of telling your kids what had happened to you when you was young, vulnerable and inexperienced.
It’s an old idea actually, but that’s the first time it’s been made into a sitcom.
Let’s think about it! Isn’t it great to let your children know what was going on with the past you? I’m sure they must be very excited and curious about that. Besides, it’s a valuable lesson for your kids in their later life.
Like me. I always want to know how my father had asked my mother out. But too bad, they just never told me while I was dying to find out the whole thing.
But if there’s one thing I don’t like about the series, that should be the plot.
Surely, the characters have been through a lot of troubles. But their characteristic is just so unrealistic that it’s almost too hard to believe.
Let’s say Ted – the main character of the show. He always wants to find out his true love in life, so desperate that he falls for almost every girl he runs into. He did all the romantic things with the girl he barely knew after just a first few dates. Some might think of that as an impulsive act of love. But for me, I’d call that crazy. Besides, if you think about it, how would your future significant other react if they knew they’d been treated the same way as any other girls?
Still, it’s a great show to watch and it’ll definitely help you relax.
Having watched the whole show, I can strongly say that I’ve learned from it a lot. The way life works. The bright side and the dark side of life, love and relationship as well as many other things.
Anyway, hope you enjoy “How I Met Your Mother.”
But I should warn you that once you get started with the series, you might not be able to stop. So, schedule your watching time carefully.
