How I Met Your Mother is one of my all time favorite TV shows. Yes, The series finale was the worst I’ve ever seen and nearly ruined the whole series and made the whole last season POINTLESS… But… I can move on… Just know while reading this, that though I hate the series finale, I have stuffed it deep in my head and refuse to acknowledge it’s existence, because I love this show! How I Met Your Mother is a rip-off-done-right of another one of my favorites, “Friends”, but that is OK because there are a million things that make it unique and amazing. Every character has a deep backstory and personality, and no one is left behind when it comes to arcs! Even though HIMYM is a brilliant, hilarious, expertly acted and written show with some real heart, my favorite part is the arcs. No one is the same as they were in season 1, or 2, or 3, and so on! If you miss a couple episodes, you will be lost, and I love shows like that! Needless to say, I highly recommend it to anyone.
