The search for a soul mate has never been so wildly inappropriate. Ted is still looking for Miss Right, but his road to domestic bliss is paved with punk rock girls, tattoos, adult video expos and an epic St. Patrick’s Day bender. Meanwhile, as Marshall and Lily adjust to married life, the incorrigible Barney commits a major violation of “The Bro Code”. Featuring a host of hilarious guest stars, including Britney Spears, Sarah Chalke (TV’s Scrubs), Enrique Iglesias, Mandy Moore and Heidi Klum.

No other sitcom is as gleefully inventive as How I Met Your Mother. The basic setup is familiar stuff: Five charming, good-looking twentysomethings pal around New York City seeking love and happiness. But many episodes have a narrative trick. For example, when his friends try to persuade Ted (Josh Radnor) from going on a date with the doctor removing the butterfly tattoo he got while drunk, their justifications send the show careening back and forth among three interconnected flashbacks. Other episodes repeat scenes from different perspectives, or leap forward, or interrupt scenes to provide necessary exposition. None of this is groundbreaking, but it is consistently smart and clever--and when combined with crisp comic dialogue and zippy performances, it's pure sitcom delight. This is a show that manages to make a gang's in-jokes actually funny. Season Three is absolutely essential for any fan of the show, because this is the season we actually meet the title character; after two years of preamble, the mother to Ted's unnamed kids finally appears! But there are abundant other reasons to get this season, including Marshall (Jason Segel, Forgetting Sarah Marshall) and Lily (Alyson Hannigan, Buffy the Vampire Slayer) buying a crooked apartment, Barney (Neil Patrick Harris) getting the yips and getting slapped, and the return of Robin Sparkles, Canadian teenybopper alter-ego of Robin (Cobie Smulders). There's a wee bit of unfortunate stuntcasting (though she doesn't embarrass herself, Britney Spears still sticks out by dint of sheer inescapable celebrity), but it's a minor flaw in an all-around superb season. Add in an abundance of commentaries, featurettes, music videos, additional scenes, and How I Met Your Mother: Season Three is clearly a must-have for fans and a great introduction for newcomers. --Bret Fetzer

In the third season the show's format has settled down. The quick editing, changes in time frame, and the surprising amount of external filmed footage, for a sitcom, are now all familiar. The writers' strike happened during season 3, but it doesn't affect the flow too obviously. The arc story continues to be very slow to advance and the emphasis this year is more on the various permutations the main leads can go through in their sometimes rocky and sometimes close relationships. Mild spoilers here are that Lilly and Marshall are married and Ted and Robin part. The latter allows Ted to meet the always entertaining Sarah Chalke as a new recurring character Stella. Barney is his usual hilarious self. Enjoy.
Josh Radnor is respledent when fully restored to the centre of attention while his superb supporting cast of Jason Segel, Neil Patrick Harris, Alyson Hannigan and the still somewhat illdefined Cobie Smulders along with recurring guest star Sarah Chalke are still given good material to work with and only Britney Spears out stays her welcome.
The creators have got there act together from the very outset of the third season and firmly reassert their control to bring the series back from a mid-season drag with a well crafted series of episodes that cover much of the same ground as the first season but in a far more convincing way.
Kids, a lot of weird random things have happened in my life.
