I either get into trends super early or incredibly late. Example: I started listening to the soundtrack to Rent five years before any of my friends had even heard of it. On the other hand, I didn’t start watching How I Met Your Mother until this year. And I mean like March. I then got totally obsessed with it and ended up watching the first eight seasons within a month. Then I realized that it was impossible to find the final season on any of my online TV sources: Netflix, Amazon Prime or XFinity Cable. I was annoyed! So I looked into Hulu Plus and they didn’t have it either. I ended up just coughing up the $30 to buy the final season.
I loved the entire series. I thought it was well written and I liked that there were references back to previous seasons including flashbacks. I was torn with the ending. On the one hand, I was incredibly saddened, but on the other hand, the show gave me hope for my own boggling love life. My favorite character, by far, was Lily. I think because I always thought that I would be Lily-marrying someone I’d been with forever and Marshall was just such a stand-up guy with just perfect dash of geekiness where I could let my true geeky nature out. But alas, that has not been my lot in life.
Regardless, I found the show a great show to watch and I am a big fan of streaming shows after they come out because you never have to wait for the next season! What show should I watch next? I’ve been watching Web Therapy with Lisa Kudrow and have been told Game of Thrones. I loved West Wing and would love another show like that!
