In Response to Life’s After Party: HIMYM Sucks

Since this posting is a little too long for a reply, I am posting my thoughts here and pinging it back (or is it “pingbacking”?) to Life’ After Party’s blog on CBS’s sitcom, “How I Met Your Mother.”

Originally, I did not care for HIMYM.  I watched the pilot episode and thought that the way it ended was a cheap hook to get people to watch every week.  During the next few years, I watched an episode here and there when I couldn’t find anything else to watch.  Like you, there are certain characters whom I find over-the-top, often to the point of being annoying. Yet, the stories themselves were clever.  I then saw HIMYM and “Rules of Engagement” (not as zany as HIMYM, but in my opinion, a better show) as “Friends” and “Seinfeld” for the new generation.

So, I began to watch HIMYM more and more, torn between the clever writings and the good actors playing 2-dimensional characters. Overtime, HIMYM became more and more of a disappointment.  Okay, a lot of time is spent in a bar (as opposed to a diner or coffeehouse), and once in a while someone may be tipsy, even drunk.  But, what is with all the pot?  Even those viewers who never saw the original reference, know what the characters are talking about when they go on about “sandwiches”.  While tuned into CBS, I watched other sitcoms as well:  “Two and a Half Men,” “2 Broke Girls,” and other sitcoms which helped lower the standards of the CannaBiS network.
