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.

I never watched himym on cbs and only caught late night syndicated reruns on local channels because I work all day and night. The more I watched it the more I absolutely appreciated the show as one of my all time favorites regardless of genre. So being able to binge watch it on Amazon instant video has been a really nice option after work. There are episodes in each season I've watched that I never saw before and catching up on the ones I have in context of how they aired during their actual seasons makes everything make more sense. Season five marks the half way mark of the shows run and while some shows have worn themselves out by this point himym Just keeps getting better in my opinion.

HIMYM follows a similar formula in most episodes, but that also creates a feeling of familiarity with the characters. By Season 5, the viewer feels like they really know Ted, Barney, Lilly, Marshall, and Robin. Barney has some hilarious one-liners and Marshall's goofy and animated style balance out the dry and boring Ted.

Obviously, I recommend starting this show with Season 1 and working towards Season 5. Although some episodes could be enjoyable without knowing the whole back story, it is much better to have a context that only comes from watching from Season 1.

i have been following himym since day one so i am a huge fan. two of my favorite episodes from this season is 'the playbook' and 'the wedding bride'. i esp love lily's cigarette voice in the 'last cigarette ever' episode. the acting is great, the jokes are funny, and they portray new yorkers very well (i'm a new yorker). this season will def get you laughing and is a great add on esp if you have all the seasons.
