About How I Met Your Mother

by Hayley Igarashi

This chapter is a free excerpt from Quicklet on How I Met Your Mother Season 3 (TV Show).

Ted: “Kids, here's something I wish my dad had told me. The longest pause you will ever experience in your life is the one that follows asking the question...‘Will you marry me?’”

How I Met Your Mother has a misleading title. Sure, the premise focuses on a father telling his kids how he first met their mother, but it’s really just about life — Ted finding his future mate is just a small part of that story.

Season 3 of the hit CBS comedy series continues to revolve around Ted Mosby, struggling architect, and his four best friends. This time, however, the dynamic is a bit different than in the previous seasons. Marshall and Lily are married, and as of last season’s finale, Ted and Robin are broken-up. Barney continues to be his hilarious womanizing self, but no one expects or desires that to change any time soon.

What makes How I Met Your Mother so successful is its ability to relate to its viewers, not just on the big lofty issues like love and loss, but on the silly, stupid, ridiculous experiences that color our lives.

From Seinfeld to Friends, it seems like there will always be a home on our television screens for a bunch of friends experiencing life just like the rest of us. What sitcoms like these lack in big budgets, action sequences, and life-or-death heroics, they make up for in heart and relatability.

Our friends at Maclaren’s Pub are growing up a bit more this season, but they’re still the characters we know and love from Season 1. We expect them to face challenges and experience life lessons because if they did not, the illusion that these are real people living real lives would become more difficult to accept.

Fans of How I Met Your Mother wait in anticipation to find out who will be Ted’s future wife, what marriage will hold for Marshall and Lily, and how Barney will one-up his last hilarious stunt, but they mainly tune in each week to just catch-up with their friends.

A show that delivers both laughs and moments of authentic poignancy from its likeable cast of characters? Really, what more can you ask for?
