Product Description

Product Description

The woman of his dreams is out there--the question is, who is she? Told in a series of flashbacks, How I Met Your Mother is the hilariously unpredictable story of how twenty-something Ted meets his soul mate and says goodbye to the singles world of pick-up lines, one night stands, and relationship "deal breakers". With friends Marshall and Lily's wedding fast approaching, the outrageously inappropriate Barney remains a consummate bachelor, while Ted's romance with Robin heats up, but is she really the one for him? Things have a funny way of working out in this delightfully fresh and fast-paced comedy.

From Amazon.co.uk

The sweet, snarky charms of How I Met Your Mother are in full force on this clever sitcom's second season. The show's conceit is that it's all from the point of view of the future self of Ted Mosby (played in our time by Josh Radnor, voiced in the future by Bob Saget), telling his kids the story of how he met their mother--a character that, two seasons in, has yet to be introduced. Instead, the show revolves around Ted's romantic pursuit of Robin (Cobie Smulders) and the cosy relationship of Ted's best friends, Lily (Buffy the Vampire Slayer's beloved Alyson Hannigan) and Marshall (Jason Segel from another cult show, Freaks and Geeks). Careening through these two love stories is Barney (Neil Patrick Harris, the former Doogie Howser, M.D.), an aggressively single womaniser, whose intimate friendship with this largely sincere and domestic bunch doesn't make much sense...but often makes for excellent comedy. This goofy quintet of late 20somethings flounder their way through life in New York, wrestling with love and careers. When the first season ended, Ted and Robin had finally hooked up, but Marshall and Lily had suddenly split up. Season two runs with this, enriching the relationships among all the characters over the season's progress while spinning out all sorts of stand-alone plots that make each episode a treat. Examples: Ted discovers that his parents have been keeping a secret from him; Marshall, feeling burnt by love, starts doing couple things with a newly single male friend; Lily gets a job at Ted's office and is appalled by Ted's obnoxious boss; Robin tries to keep Ted from discovering her sordid past; and Barney...well, Barney is the gleeful source of a dozen cockeyed tales, ranging from asking Lily to paint a nude portrait of him to grappling poorly with his gay brother's sudden turn to monogamy to going on The Price is Right to find his father. The entire cast is superb (and much more confident this season), but Harris's inexplicably endearing smarminess really pushes the show into a higher comic bracket. That performance energy--combined with the cunning use of flashbacks and other twisty story techniques--makes How I Met Your Mother both sweet and spicy, a conventional sitcom that tweaks the formula enough to make it feel fresh and engaging. If the creators can keep this up, this show will become a classic.--Bret Fetzer, Amazon.com

Sticking comfortably to the sitcom format, How I Met Your Mother doesn't really bring anything innovative to the party, but charming actors and a surprisingly sharp and witty script keep the series fresh and very watchable.

Josh Radnor takes centre stage as Ted, who is in the process of telling his children the story of how he met their mother. This is done through a series of flashbacks, giving the writers scope to be inventive and fit in a few unexpected twists along the way.

The second series continues where we left off, expanding on Ted and Robyn's relationship, as well as the events after Marshall and Lilly break up. And lets not forget the antics of Neil Patrick Harris as crass, womaniser Barney, who has to be one of the funniest and most-quotable characters I have ever seen on TV.

The writers have assembled a superb cast, who are much more confident in their roles this time around. They manage to make the characters feel like real people, and prevent them from being annoying despite their individual flaws. Personally, I found the episodes prior to Ted and Robyn becoming a couple to be slightly more endearing, giving the writers a tad more direction, but that isn't to say this series isn't just as funny and memorable as the first.

Despite many of the plots being fairly straightforward, you find yourself becoming attached to the characters and well written gags make even routine stories seem fresh. It's just very watchable comfort TV.

Fox have confirmed that they have no immediate plans to release this box set in Region 2 format, so I would highly recommend paying Amazon.com a visit. The Region 1 version can be imported for less than £20.

After two years of waiting for season 2 to emerge it's finally here. If you haven't caught the show yet, or saw a clip and thought it was trying too hard to be another Friends (it isn't), the basic premise is that some years from now Ted tells his children a story of how he met their mother. But his story starts before that event and so we're left to slowly work out who his future wife will be. This arc story allows us to meet his friends who are his sometimes girlfriend Robin, his unpleasant womanizer friend Barney, and Marshall and Lilly, a sickeningly happy couple (mostly).

The star turn, and most of the funniest lines, is provided by Barney, but all the cast spark well with rapid fire witty comments that come over as being natural and in character rather than the writers giving everyone sharp words to say. In truth, the stories are usually contrived in a routine sitcom sort of way providing nothing you haven't seen before, but then again that adds to the charm of the show. It works because the characters are so well-drawn and are just real enough to be appealing. And the editing is fast to ensure that not a moment is wasted, but for once this technique is used to good effect as the stories move around in time and place.

Season 2 follows on the story left at the end of season 1 in which Marshall and Lilly are having issues and Robin and Ted aren't. The overall arc story inches on and on the way there's plenty of laughs. Let's hope it's not another two years before season 3 appears.

I love HIMYM,and this season contains possibly my two favorite episodes of the whole series (Slapbet and Arrivederci, Fiero) but where are the special features?

Part of the whole reason I buy box sets is for the gag reels and behind the scenes stuff and I know season 2 R1 has them as they are all over You tube.

I wouldn't hesitate to buy this season again or any future releases but I would really like to see the special features return for the S3 DVD.

It's about time season 2 was released on DVD in the UK, hopefully this will mean that in the future season 3 and 4 will be released in the UK too. I've watched season 2 on E4 and it totally eclipses season 1 and i'm so looking forward to this release. I think E4 should really be credited because if they hadn't bought the rights to air episodes of How I Met Your Mother i don't think it would ever have been released on DVD.
The show was given one of the worst time slots on BBC Two and had it have been given an 8:30 - 9:00 time slot it could have been one of the most succesfull shows for the BBC.
Again i'm totally looking forward to the Season 2 DVD its gonna be Legen .. wait for it ... Dary.

Had bought season 1 thinking it was the only season I was able to watch on region 2 DVD player until I noticed these French imports for seasons 2 and 3 for sale. Very glad I did as it means I could watch subsequent seasons without having to wait for UK release or buy a multi region DVD player. If you liked season 1 you will love this....it is far funnier and Neil Patrick Harrison excels as Barney, he just gets better and better. Highly recommended to cheer up your day.

HIMYM is by far the best Sit Com to come out in the past decade. It seems to be advertised as being 'just like Friends' but is so much more. It is extremely clever and also realistic. When one character says a joke, the others laugh. It seems so much more natural. I love the injokes and the flashbacks and how each episode is like sitting down with a friend who is about to tell you an awesome drunken story. There's even inconsistancies and references back. It makes it a much more refreshing watch than the usual seen it all before obvious jokes of previous sitcoms (friends included)

However this DVD boxset loses 2 stars because I was sooooo looking forward to the special features and both me n my partner were extremely disappointed to find there weren't any. There were some on the American release. Bloopers and easter eggs and commentary from the cast. I would like to know how the special features were overlooked, especially since it took so long for a UK release of these dvds to happen. Here's hoping they don't make the same mistake with season 3.
