This show takes the audience on a bit of a backwards journey down memory lane. The premise has the narrator (Ted) telling his two children the story of how he met their mother. Along the way we meet Lilly and Marshall (known to each other by the sickeningly sweet nicknames Marshmellow and Lillypad) who are a funny, picture perfect cute couple (well...they are now, anyway, after their relationship trouble in season 1). We also meet Robin (Ted's on again, off again girlfriend who turns out *not* to be his future wife) and that rascally womanizing egomaniac, Barney.

I think the casting in this show was outstanding. Neil Patrick Harris shines as Barney, and Alyson Hannigan puts forth a brilliant performance each episode as Lilly. The character of Ted is a good fit for Josh Radnor (who we have thus far only seen in small bit parts in various films, such as Not Another Teen Movie (Unrated Director's Cut). Jason Segal and Cobie Smulders round out the cast nicely as Marshall and Robin. (and if you think you might recognize the voice of the "older Ted Mosbey" during the narrating portion of the show...it's probably because you do. The narrator is actually Bob Saget).

Season 2 pretty much picks up where season 1 left off. In a bizarre case of cold feet, Lilly breaks off her engagement with Marshall and moves to California for an art internship. Marshall is left in New York, alone and heartbroken, while Robin and Ted strike out in their new relationship (despite the fact that they both know they want very different things out of life). Barney, as always, provides much of the comic relief throughout the show, and remains his usual womanizing self.

Ted, Marshall, Lily, Robin and Barney. TV's quirkiest set of friends since NBC's Friends are back with 22 more sensational episodes in How I Met Your Mother - Season Two. Following the Season One finale breakup of Marshall and Lily which resulted in Lily leaving for San Francisco on an art internship, leaving Marshall emotionally lost, Season Two opens with the gang helping Marshall cope with the void left by his "Lilypad" which, of course, leads to hilarious situations. Marshall unknowingly "dating" his friend from law school, Brad, who also recently broke up with his girlfriend in "World's Greatest Couple" comes to mind. Also returning for Season Two is director Pamela D. Fryman, who again guides the episodes (19 of 22) with her pitch perfect direction. As with Season One, all 22 episodes of How I Met Your Mother - Season Two are a delight and not to be missed. Guest stars this season include Michael Gross ("Family Ties"), Cristine Rose ("Heroes"), Jane Seymore ("Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman"), Bryan Cranston ("Malcolm in the Middle"), Wayne Brady ("Who's Line Is It, Anyway?") and Bob Barker ("The Price is Right"). How I Met Your Mother - Season Two is a 3-disc (484 min.) set featuring all 22 episodes from the 2006-2007 season; Anamorphic Widescreen (1.78:1) video; plus extras.

This is the best TV show of the last 5 years in my opinion. This show (and Scrubs) single handedly saved me from throwing my TV out the window. In a world where reality television is king, HIMYM saves the sitcom format. Even with the forever-parodied "laugh track", the show works. Focusing on Ted Moesby, he is looking for "Miss Right" while, 30 years into future his older counterpart (voiced by Bob Saget) is relaying each weeks adventure to his children. There are some great episodes in this season, but maybe the greatest episode is "Slap Bet". I cannot imagine the DVD being anything less than Legen......dary!

Note: This review contains Spoilers. I have to admit, I was a little concerned when the second season began. I mean, having Marshall and Lily break up was kind of a downer. But I'm glad I decided to keep watching, because this year easily contains some of the show's funniest episodes. My wife and I put on "Slap Bet" anytime we need a little pick-me-up. And of course, there's the "Robin Sparkles" episode, in which Cobie Smulders (like the show itself, a criminally-underrated comic actress) really gets a chance to shine. "Swarley" is a Barney Stinson classic. And "Arrivederci, Fiero" may be the biggest laugh-getter of the season.

How I Met Your Mother may never quite achieve Classic Sitcom status. And you know, that's really fine with me. I wouldn't want too much success to go to their heads. But I'll keep watching and laughing myself silly.

SPOILERS alert...especially IF you haven't seen the first season.

So this is Season 2 of HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER, and, thank the almighty chewtoy, they haven't let up on the funny. For me, the first season snuck up, although it didn't take too long before it became my current top sitcom. What sold me was the combination of great character dynamics, the off-beat, sometimes snarky humor, and that whiff of romance (that dude Ted can carry a hell of a torch). This gang were folks I could relate to - yes, even Barney, the unapologetically self-absorbed misogynist who still somehow wormed into my good graces. And, actually, even Barney came thru for his buds when the chips were down.

The premise of HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER states that Ted, sometime in the future, will meet the woman of his dreams. In Season 2 Bob Saget returns to reprise his voice-over role of future Ted as he persists in regaling his kids with the convoluted story of how he met their mother. What the show tantalizingly fails to reveal is the mom's identity, and the how and the when. And Season 2 keeps us in suspense. Starting with last season's finale and leading into the Season 2 opener, things have changed some. Lily and likable goof Marshall are no longer engaged, and Marshall is extremely resentful. But Ted and Robin are now an item. Barney, though, is still a raging womanizer. This status quo would remain for several episodes. The show makes no bones about Robin not being the mother of future Ted's kids, so, it was a fun yet bittersweet time watching Robin and Ted go thru the ups and downs of their romance.

In a very good sophomore season, most of the episodes are solid and several sparkle.
