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.

"How I Met Your Mother" swaggers into its fifth season on DVD, a face that has probably surprised many. The premise is that an older narrator (voiced by Bob Saget) is telling the really, really, REALLY long story to his kids of how he met their mother after many, many, MANY stories about other women he dated first and his core group of friends. With a premise that seems like it can't go anywhere unless you introduce the mother, they've successfully managed to keep viewers on the hook this long and keep the show funny due to the hilarious supporting cast surrounding Ted, whom the story is supposed to be based around.

Ted Mosby is played by Josh Radnor and is by far the least interesting character on the show. It's very telling when Amazon describes the show as "the outrageous, Emmy-nominated hit starring Neil Patrick Harris, Jason Segel and Alyson Hannigan!" Neil Patrick Harris plays Barney, a brilliant, confident womanizer with a penchant for suits. Alyson Hannigan and Jason Segel play a married couple of Lily and Marshall. She wears the pants in the relationship and he goes along with everything she wants and they try desperately to go on couple dates with other couples and are pretty funny. The other friend in their group is Robin played by Cobie Smulders, an ex-girlfriend of Ted's who gets along well with the group who acts more like one of the guys sometimes.

Ted is constantly over-analyzing situations and trying to play the romance why-can't-I-find-the-one card, but it gets old and annoying. Really, he should be thanking his lucky stars that he gets to date ANY of these tons of girls that fall into his lap at all.
