I’ve heard a lot of good things about the show How I Met Your Mother so I put the first disc into my Netflix queue.
It was boring. And I’m really disappointed it was so boring.
The show is totally formulaic. It’s just like every other network comedy out there. There is nothing outstanding about it.
I watched the first eight episodes (the first disc) and just didn’t see the appeal.
The rundown: people living in NYC. Guy #1: looking for love. Guy #2: sex hound Girl #1: not looking for love. Unicouple: just got engaged. Blah, blah, blah. Antics ensue. Blah, blah, blah. Friends sleep together. Blah, blah, blah. Everyone seems to have money for cabs, bars, doctors, clubs but no one seems to work. Blah, blah, blah.
It’s to bad because I really like Neil Patrick Harris and Allyson Hannigan. But their performances are stunted because the writing is so bad. If this is the best these two had offered to them I suggest new agents. Or new careers.
On a scale of 1-10, 10 being incredible, this is a 3 at best. More like a 2.1323221.
