Hollywood likes to repeat itself. Well, I should say that if an idea is successful they try to repeat the success. In movies they create sequels, prequels, and remakes. In TV they make spinoffs or remakes. Sometimes they work like Frasier, other times they don't work at all like the American made version of Britain's Coupling (which was itself a British working of Friends). After Seinfeld studio after studio bought ideas of endearingly funny people who were basically loathsome people, and after Friends studios bought ideas of groups of best friends who met in public places to talk about their messed up sex lives.

Boiled down to its basic premise, How I Met Your Mother could be considered to fall into the latter category. Because I was never a fan of Friends (still not, although I have enjoyed a couple of episodes here and there, I wouldn't turn on the show of my own accord) and many critics and commentators compared How I Met Your Mother to Friends I decided not to check it out at first. There have been many Friends clones, and I felt that another one of them didn't warrant my attention. It wasn't until just before the fourth season aired that I realized I was wrong to wait so long to check it out.

I would be lying if I said that the recent appeal of Neil Patrick Harris and Jason Segel's recent box office success in Forgetting Sarah Marshall had nothing to do with my choice to check out the show. It was really my fiancée who got me to check it out. While I was at work a few times Renee chose to check out some episodes in syndication on Lifetime and really enjoyed them and got me to check it out. The first episode I viewed was the season 3 episode "How I Met Everyone Else".

Gave this gift to our 20 year old son for Christmas. Couldn't believe it when he asked us if we wanted to watch it with him... the gift that kept on giving! Now I know what to give him for his birthday; Barney's book, The Bro Code.

I'm not a huge television fan, but HIMYM is one of the few shows that I watch almost religiously, whether I watch online or when the episode runs on cable. When I purchased this set, it was cheaper than if I had bought the five seasons individually (not sure if that is the case now).

This show is incredibly entertaining, but I really didn't appreciate how intricate the writing is until seeing it unfold chronologically. This is one show where watching it from the beginning really adds to the entertainment value. Many other shows are pretty much the same week to week, so watching episodes out of sequence is fine and doesn't really make me want to purchase the season. HIMYM is different from most sitcoms in that every episode builds upon the last, and to get all the inside jokes and references you have to see it from the beginning.

The complexities of all the different storylines and how one storyline from a prior season comes up two seasons later to be revisited is awesome, and makes the viewer feel like they're in on the joke (ie Slapsgiving, Robin Sparkles, Doctor X). Also, watching the characters develop over several seasons is a real treat and puts most other television shows to shame. The backdrop of NYC serves as an additional treat; I've been to NYC several times and it's always fun to see places I've visited pop up in different episodes. I enjoy hearing the main character's (Ted's) narrative and point of view.

It also is still running strong in the eighth season when many other shows I used to like that have made it that far (eg The Office) have grown kind of stale. This is undoubtedly one of those rare, great shows.

Bought this set for my daughter for Xmas (she loves the show). It arrived speedily and in great shape. Every volume is topnotch. This would make a great gift for anyone who likes the show or just a good laugh or two. This seller was a pleasure to work with.

Items were recieved in a timely manner though exterior quality appears to be from DVD's that were burned and labels were made for each disc. As read in previous reviews, the season 1 inside cover had a clip from the movie "Forgetting Sarah Marshall".
Several discs were scratched and DISC 2 from 5th season won't play in my PS3s or DVD player or laptop.
I purchased these items because I thought they were original. Now that I know, not only that they are burned DVD's, but also that they have poor quality, I wouldn't have bought them. I would like to know if there is a possible way to return the DVD that's not working.

Items were recieved in a timely manner, but the exterior quality made it appear that the DVD's were burned and labels were made for each disc. The season 1 inside cover had a clip are from the movie "Forgetting Sarah Marshall" which doesn't have anything to do with "How I met your mother", other than Jason Segal. Couple of the disc were scratched as well. Some would not play in my DVD player, but all worked in my PS3. I wish I would of known these were redone copies of the show instead of actual manufactured set!

I`ve never seen a tv serie like this in the past 5 years and i love comedy. The last one that really caught my attention was The Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air. Though I never watched Friends, it seems that HIMYM and Friends are alike (they both have Pamela Fryman as director), but HIMYM is new, 21st century material and you can always see yourself in some situations, characters. Recommend it for sure... true story.
