Monday is my new Thursday
In high school, we lived for Thursdays. And it all revolved around one word: FRIENDS. Even the girls in the dorms would make sure to record the episode on the VCR during study hours so they could be up on the gossip before us day students could ruin the plot line surprise. And we all had the CD, the t-shirt, the “Central Perk” coffee mug… we loved it.
I’m going to claim that “How I met your Mother” is now the new Friends, or at least, it’s my sitcom replacement. Mr. M and I own Seasons 1 & 2 on DVD… and I think we may have stayed up way past our bedtime busting through episodes on numerous occasions. It’s funny, charming, witty and completely easy to relate to. And it’s got Doogie. What else does it need?
So in case you’re in need of a show that isn’t an hour long intense crime drama, another show about spoiled rich teenagers, or something labeled “reality” — try escaping for a half hour with Barney, Ted, Robin, Marshall and Lily.
i love that show!
AH! HIMYM is so funny! The episode with the cockamouse is my favorite.
AH!!!! I LOVE HIMYM! And Friends for that matter… I can’t say til the show finishes completely whether it’ll be on the same par as a whole, but right now — definitely loving it. My fave episode is probably Arrivederci, Fiero. :)
Definitely the most under-rated show on TV!
My Favorite Epi – SLAP BET! (After all, that’s when we get introduced to Robin Sparkles!)
I’ve fallen for this show as well. I’m definitely not getting all the shows about spoiled rich teenagers and all the fake reality shows.
I love HIMYM!!!! Doogie is awesome and cracks me up… wait for it… every time.
@Heidi – Ah… that cracks me up every time!
