5.0 out of 5 stars Awesomely funny, 9 May 2008
This review is from: How I Met Your Mother - Season 1 [DVD] (DVD)
I only came across How I Met Your Mother by chance last December when flicking through the channels one evening. About four months on I am very thankful for that piece of fortune as How I Met Your Mother is one of the finest comedy programmes I have had the pleasure of viewing. While it shares common ground with some of the best American sitcoms, notably Friends and Scrubs, this is a show bursting with a fresh sense of originality.

The writing is sharp, varied and very funny, rarely feeling stale, with the main cast excelling with such wonderful material. With much credit going to the writers for creating a piece of television that is both extremely accessible and very smart. And while the main characters are all great in their own right, in the shape of Barney Stinson you will find one of the funniest to ever grace the sitcom.

It is a shame that How I Met Your Mother is generally unknown on these shores, but this should not distract from you giving it a try. As the rest of the reviews about this show here demonstrate, this really is one of American television's biggest gifts to us. If you find out you like this first series, having seen the second and half of the third I'm pleased to report it just as good from here, maybe even better.
