How I Met Your Mother

I think this is my favourite show on TV right now. Absolutely hysterical! It's a mostly goofy, geeky, awkward comedy mixed with a some hilarioulsy "extreme" comments (from Barney), while also giving you that warm fuzzy feeling on the inside. Plus, the title song gets stuck in your head *ba, ba ba ba ba, ba ba ba, ba, ba ba, ba ba ba ba ba ba ba ba baaaaa*

It's all about this guy who is telling his kids in 2030 of the story of how he met their mother. 2005: Ted is single and we meet his friends Marshall, Lily (Alyson Hannigan), and Barney. It's a sitcom of Ted's quest to find love with some commentary by his older self.

I first started watching because of Alyson Hannigan, perhaps more familiar to you as band girl, or Willow. I think she's an amazing actress, she pulls off that geeky girl role very convincingly and if you wanna see funny, just watch American Pie. Anyways, I decided to give the show a shot, like I did with Bones starring David Boreanaz (Angel), but that show didn't really appeal to me. I was pleasantly surprised by the show and was instantly hooked. I can identify with the characters and they grew on me quite quickly.

Oh, and actress Cobie Smulders provides eye candy. She's the reason for a lot of awkwardness comedy in the show, as Ted as a thing for her, but future Ted tells us in the first episode that that's how he met "Aunt Robin" :). She's pretty unknown. She had a few guest spots in The "L" Word last year (which has just started it's 3rd season!). She's also Canadian, which is a plus :)
