Attentive fans will be rewarded with a wealth of small references to past episodes. Though there are moments when the fundamental premise--that this is all part of an unbearably long story that a future Ted is telling to his children--feels obnoxiously stretched (toward the end of the season, one episode in particular builds up to a false revelation), for the most part HIMYM is a sterling example of a well-sustained sitcom; the characters have successfully grown over the four seasons without losing everything that made them funny in the first place. The number of extras is surprisingly small--only a few show commentaries, an enjoyable group interview, and an extended version of Barney's video resume. --Bret Fetzer

My wife and I basically boycotted network TV entirely when the "reality" TV craze swept the airwaves following the success of the "Survivor" show. We had no interest in "CSI" shows, or crime drama shows, or marriage shows, or any of the other insane drivel which came out of the "reality" TV craze. When CBS launched How I Met Your Mother (HIMYM) and we caught wind of it, we were immediately floored by the quality of the writing, and the excellent cast of actors they got for the show, now entering its fifth season.
HIMYM is an excellent successor to Friends. It is the same type of ensemble cast with romance and heartbreak and drama. But what overrides all of it, is comedy. The show is extremely funny, and packs each episode with tons of humor. Neil Patrick Harris steals the show with his antics, and he is to be commended for his performance of the excellent material the writing team give him to work with.
We will watch HIMYM for as long as it is on the air, and we hope that is a very long time!
In addition, the acting, unlike on many shows today, is always strong. This is truly an ensemble cast; there are no "weak links". All of the actors have talent, they have chemistry as a group, and they make you root for the characters they're portarying. You want Marshall and Lily to continue on their road to happily ever after, you cheer for Robin's career successes (and laugh at her mishaps), you root for Barney to get the girls although you may occasionally gag at the same time, and you hope Ted eventually meet the love of his life. Above all, it's always a fun and relaxing half-hour to sit down and find out what's going on in their lives today.
Sure, the show may not be the most original, but it sure is fun. And frankly, not every show has to be the Wire to be great. I highly recommend this show, and can't wait for season 5!
btw.: the BR is region free!
5 stars for the show and 4 for the presentation!

Every episode is completely filled with instances of sex. The storyline has hooked us, but we have to overlook this annoyance. As if nothing can be funny without sex. Read morePublished 13 hours ago by aeomom2003
Show started off good. But then got old because they keep stringing you along.Published 2 days ago by Rachel Lan
We enjoyed the characters and the plot development. Could have had better transitions during the same show, but over all it's entertaining.Published 11 days ago by Amazon Customer

|Stopped Playing on Playstation||
I just bought this on Amazon over X-mas, there are a bunch of tricks out there, but the one that worked for me was spamming the start (pause) button during the initial screen. Once you hit the FBI screen you're good to stop hammering the button. It worked for me the first time. Good Luck!

|What's with these cases!?!?!?||
I understand where you're coming from since I have a lot of the larger box sets with nice artwork and inserts and such. I'm pretty sure they do this new case to conserve shelf space in the stores (or at homes) and lower production costs.
