Product Description

Amazon.ca

How I Met Your Mother excels in tossed-off bits of genius, from a saccharine book-on-tape read by Kenny Rogers to "But, uhm" to bagpipes to harmonizing with Will Shortz and Peter Bogdanovich. These little gems of comic absurdity perfectly complement the sitcom's other great strength, which is clever, twisty storytelling--plots that fold back into themselves, unfold in flashbacks, or cross-reference previous episodes. This narrative inventiveness is hardly surprising, given that the premise of the entire series is that it's being told by the future central character, Ted Mosby, to his two children, gradually revealing how he came to marry their mother.

By the fifth season, this premise is growing a little bit threadbare (particularly after some of the red herrings of the past two seasons), yet the show continues to hold abundant pleasures. The cast--Josh Radnor, Cobie Smulders, Alyson Hannigan, Jason Segel, and Neil Patrick Harris--have an effortless lock on their characters, allowing them to pull off some perilously goofy bits that, in less confident hands, could have foundered (a musical homage to wearing suits, for example). The writing is crisp and driven; this half-hour sitcom crams in more plot turns than your average hour-long drama. The fifth season is not good to start with--the humor is much, much stronger if you've grown to love these characters over the previous four seasons--but for everyone who's been following Ted, Robin, Marshall, Lily, and Barney, it's essential viewing. Some surprising moments of melancholy are completely earned and stand out from the typical sitcom overreaching for "significance"; these moments are successfully rooted in the characters, who become more real every season… yes, even Barney. --Bret Fetzer

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the funniest shows on TV! Keep 'em coming! Sept. 26 2010
Format:DVD
So it's not on Bluray?? Boohoo!! This is a funny, funny show, with one of the best sitcom creations ever, in Barney Stinson. If you've seen it before, you're buying it anyway without having to read reviews first..if you are new to the show, I would recommend starting at the beginning with season 1. Buy them all, they're nice and cheap nowadays!! So many sitcoms come and go, it's nice to see really good shows entering 5th, 6th seasons, and beyond!!

Just like the 4 seasons before, this season will make you laugh and even cry sometimes. Still very funny but nowhere close to know who the mother is!! Great show :)

5.0 out of 5 stars The laughs just keep on coming! Nov. 12 2010
By E. Vallee TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
If you are looking at this DVD, then you have obviously been hooked on the past 4 seasons as I have been. This season continues along the same route and plotlines of the past seasons, and it still doesn't get old. Barney is even more awesome in this season. The plot lines of Lilly and Marshal develope further along the obvious paths of their relationship. I wont spoil anything about Ted, or Robin but I will say that things are really getting satisfying. This is a great season and a very well put together DVD. It's an easy buy if you are a fan.
