How I Met Your Mother is a comedy about Ted (Josh Radnor) and how he fell in love. It all started when Ted’s best friend, Marshall (Jason Segel), dropped the bombshell that he was going to propose to his long-time girlfriend, and now wife, Lily (Alyson Hannigan), a kindergarten teacher. At that moment, Ted realised that he had better get a move on if he too hopes to find true love. Helping him in his quest is Barney (Neil Patrick Harris), a friend with endless, sometimes outrageous opinions, a penchant for suits and a foolproof way to meet women. When Ted met Robin (Cobie Smulders), it was love at first sight, but when things didn’t work out, Ted realised destiny must have something else in store. The series is narrated through flashbacks from the future.
As season seven begins, Barney prepares to wed, Robin has a new suitor, Ted discovers that his new building project is helping him in the ladies department, and Marshall finds his dream job.

Roll on season 8!
As said in the title, the product came in perfect condition and on time thanks to my Amazon Prime account so that was all good.
How I Met Your Mother was one of my favourite programmes for at least four or even five seasons, but it started a sudden decline at the start of season 6 and it's going into a nose dive thanks to season 7 - needless to say, I won't be watching, let alone buying season 8.
The plot lines are getting more and more ridiculous, the humour is playing on repeats of older themes or poking fun at itself every few minutes; all the while Robin, Ted and Barney are endlessly bouncing back and forth in their affections for each other in more and more tenuous scenarios. All of which has made me lose interest in and experience any semblance of empathy for the cast of characters as a whole.
Like many brilliant American tv shows, it should have called it a day after 3 or 4 great series and not turned into something where the sole purpose is to make money... But don't worry, I'm not that naive to realise that's what tv shows have to do - make lots of money by being brilliant or die a slow, painful and tired death while trying to sustain a plot over pretty much a decade to keep the executives' pockets well lined.
Ultimately, I can't watch it anymore because I fear for the sanity, patience and resolve of Ted's poor children who are under some strange house arrest where they are evidently so bored now that they have forgotten their mother's name, what she looks like and somehow appear surprised/shocked when their Machiavellian father throws them another curve ball of a plot point every 30 minutes or so.
Surely she is in the other room drinking herself into a stupor to drown out her husband's ramblings...
I'm not gonna give anything away because I hate to find out about storylines before I watch it but I think there are some great ones this season and I can't wait to see more and more importantly I can't wait for season 8, I'm not sure I even care who the mother is now, I'm just enjoying the journey and the revealing of the mother would most probably mean the end of this fantastic show.
I pre-ordered as soon as it was available and I think £13.99 is an absolute bargain for a 22 episode season, there's no reason not to buy.

There were some absolutely brilliant episodes (The Burning Beekeeper, Trilogy Time and Ducky Time stand out). There were also a few episodes that harked back to earlier series - we finally meet the Slutty Pumpkin (Katie Holmes on good form). However, as ever, some episodes seem a bit strained.
Overall its still as good as ever and each character progresses slightly (except possibly Ted in some ways).
