Kids... I hope you brought your notebooks, because the story of how I met your mother is a lot longer than you might think...

You get the feeling with each passing season that Ted Mosby's "story" is not so much about how he met his wife, but a cleverly disguised series of lessons for his adolescent kids as they enter young adulthood. That's not to say his quest for "the one" is actually just a footnote in the story, though. Many of the things Ted learned along the way were directly connected to his search for the elusive Mrs. Mosby. It just so happens that after five seasons, information has leaked regarding the wife's identity, but we've still yet to "meet" her. I know CBS has a good thing going with this show, but I'm wondering how much longer the writers can stall this inevitable meeting without the story becoming completely absurd.

**Possible Spoilers in Next Section**
For HIMYM fans who are drawn in by Ted Mosby's journey to find his soul mate, Season 5 may come as a mild disappointment. The 100th episode was monumental, not just for the show itself, but for fans thirsting for details on the future Mrs. Mosby. However, outside of that episode there was very little advancement made in the whole "meeting your mother" facet of the show. Now for fans who might be more indifferent to the sentimentality of the show, or just have no problem with the stall for the sake of prolonging the series, this is a fantastic season. S5 more than any was centered around Barney Stinson, whose story ranged from serious relationships to sexual escapades more unique and insane than ever before, "The Playbook" (ep.8) and "The Perfect Week" (ep.14) in particular.

RECAP: The series follows Ted, an architect telling his children the story of how he met their mother. Each season shows Ted and his friends experiencing all of the moments and antics that will eventually/hopefully lead to Ted meeting and falling in love with his future wife. In general, it's probably necessary to have watched the previous seasons before jumping in at Season 5, since there are references to the past and previous character development plays a role. I've come to terms with the fact that IF we ever learn who the mother is, it will be the very last episode. Despite being trailed along all this time, the happenings of Ted and his friends are incredibly funny. To some degree, their regular antics do get a little old, but in the next season the writers begin to change things up and lend a little story-freshening. I do like this show and it's one you can watch several times, though I recommend having the seasons on hand because it is kind of important to be able to watch them in order. This is a well-written and family appropriate show that keeps fans begging for more.

Season 5 kicked off in the fall of 2009 with main characters: Josh Radnor as Ted Mosby, Neil Patrick Harris as Barney Stinson, Cobie Smulders as Robin Scherbatsky, Alyson Hannigan as Lily Aldrin, and Jason Segel as Marshall Eriksen. As the series progresses it is also picking up more and more celebrity cameos [ehem, did you know that the voice of "future Ted" in the precaps is actually Bob Saget?]; Season 5 features cameos from Chris Elliott as Mickey Aldrin, Marshall Manesh as Ranjit, Sarah Wright as Claire, Joe Manganiello as Brad Morris, Charles Chun as Mr.

this season was pretty great. some classic episodes like Of Course, Rabbit or Duck, Definitions, Last Cigarette Ever, Jenkins and Doeppelgangers. If you're a fan of the show, you'll love it!

My husband and I BOTH love this t.v. show- which is a miracle! We have such different taste in sitcoms that we were amazed it appealed to both of us. With that being said I would say the best two seasons of this show are the 2nd and 3rd seasons- the humor is top notch and will have you laughing out loud each episode. I found that after the 3rd season things have gone done hill... beginning with last season and then sliding down more with this 5th season.

*SPOILER ALERT* Part of the reason I think this season wasn't as funny was b/c Robin and Barney date for a good chunk of it, which takes the most humorous part of the show- Barney and his womanizing ways- out of the picture. Some of the funnier episodes are the ones after their relationship is over. I'm all for thinking that Robin and Barney will end up together in the END... so hopefully they won't touch this area again until then!
*END SPOILER ALERT*

Since we own the first four seasons on DVD, I feel compelled to continue our collection by getting this one. All in all it's not a bad season... it's just not nearly as good as their first three seasons. It definitely helps move the story along of how Ted meets his wife though- and we actually get to learn more about her (finally!) So in that regard it's definitely worth the watch. Maybe Netflix it to see if you like it before you buy it though!
