Suit up for the hilarious fifth season of How I Met Your Mother--the outrageous, Emmy®-nominated hit sitcom starring Neil Patrick Harris, Jason Segel and Alyson Hannigan. The show's funniest season to date is loaded with hook-ups, break-ups and the return of slapsgiving--not to mention the hot guest stars including Jennifer Lopez, Carrie Underwood, Amanda Peet and Rachel Bilson. On the dating front, Barney and Robin take their relationship to the next level--before calling it off--and Ted meets the roommate of his future wife in this uproarious, modern day love story told in reverse.

This season there is a move away from the arc of season 4, and as such there is an imbalance, there is less focus on Ted finding the mother, and it can feel very episodic in nature, this happens in american TV because the networks will say "we want a show anybody can watch without needing to know what happened last week" if you have to call back to previous episodes all the time, its less likely to attract casual viewers.
There are some brilliant episodes here, including Ted, moving towards all the time the goal, in one episode he buys the house he will eventually live in, even when everybody else is telling him otherwise.. Robin grows as a character, and chooses love over her career, (for the first time) Barney grows too, after having a relationship with Robin we see how he has changed, Lily and Marshall, they move forward to, eventually deciding the time is right to try for a baby.
Worth the price of the DVD alone is the episode The Wedding Bride. Remember Stella from season 4? The man she ran off with wrote a script about it, and the bad guy? One Jed Mosely, this episode calls back a number of references to previous episodes and is brilliant. Ted's anger about being written about on the big screen is awesome.
There are filler eps, but i think eps like The Playbook, Girls Vs Suits, Slapsgiving 2, Robots Vs Wrestlers, Homewreckers are as good as any. I think people need to remember this isnt Friends, it is a bit different, and sometimes yes Barney is almost a parody of a character than a real character, do you know anybody like that? But part of its charm is the fact it's quirky, which means its not for everybody.
It's not my favourite season - that's definitely season 3 or 4. It is also helpful to already know what is going on in the story, otherwise you miss crucial details and very clever scripting from the writers. I love the background music too - there are some great unusual songs to be found within the DVDs, this DVD in particular.
I ordered it and received it in the post very quickly via the standard super saver delivery (thanks Amazon!), so I could start watching it only a day or so after I'd ordered it.
If you do buy it, don't watch it too fast because you'll be dying for the next series to come out just to find out what happens!

I hope this was helpful! :)
(I really am a fan of this show, despite my rant) I did give this 4 stars as it is an amazingly funny show and when it does the moments right, they are truly brilliant. The first episode was so cute and highly enjoyable. I will always be a fan of this show and hope that there are plenty more seasons. I also found this season was quite musically based and Barneys suit song was brilliant.
