10 Reasons to Watch ‘How I Met Your Mother’
It all started with a father narrating a story to his kids how he met their mother, and it went on to become one of the most sought-after and successful sitcoms in the last decade. The plot of this show is focused on discovering the wife of Ted Mosby, along with his friends Lily, Marshall, Robin and Barney. All the characters of this show are developed beautifully, each one having a new and different outlook towards life.
This show rose to immense popularity amongst the younger audiences, mainly because of the interesting storyline and great humor. It is also often compared to the evergreen and all time favorite sitcom ‘Friends’, but HIMYM enthusiasts can vouch that this show is better. Here are some reasons why you should definitely watch this show.
1. For the amazing catchphrases
There is not a single episode in this series where you will not hear an amazing catchphrase. Some of the lines have become so popular that youngsters in day-to-day life use them. The most popular ones are by Barney Stinson. He has been given some of the best lines in the show, followed by others. There is never a dull moment in the show, thanks to these splitting catchphrases.
2. For Barney Stinson
Undoubtedly, the character of Barney is the best part of the show. His character is more of a playboy, but not like the regular ones. He has a unique way of charming women that makes his character quite different from the rest. His persona and mannerisms make him the most delightful individual to watch. He is indeed “legendary” in the show and more than just “awesome”.
3. For Marshall and Lily
Marshall and Lily are college sweethearts who are enjoying a successful marriage full of romance. The love between them is fairytale-like. Marshall has never cheated on Lily, even though she left him and went away for a brief period of time. Even with all the twists and turns, their love has remained strong and only grown more over the years. Marshall, amongst all the characters is the strongest, as well as the kindest, while Lily can be manipulating and a naughtily cunning woman at times to get what she wants. Still, even with their different natures, they make the best couple in the show.
4. For Ted and Robin’s relationship
When the show started, strong hints were thrown for Robin being the “mother” we are searching for in the show. However, later, they broke up. Many thought that Ted and Robin made a perfect pair, but the makers had more in store for the fans. The relationship they share after the breakup has been written very smartly, and that gave a whole new dimension to the plot of the show.
5. For the surprise guest appearances
There are many celebrities from Hollywood who have made appearances in this show, simply because of its content and popularity. Enrique Iglesias and Katty Perry are some of the few who have come and played a character for an episode.
