A love story in reverse.
A love story in reverse: How I Met Your Mother is a fresh new comedy about Ted (Josh Radnor) and how he fell in love.
When Ted's best friend Marshall (Jason Segel) and Lily (Alyson Hannigan) decide to tie the knot, it sparks the search for his own Miss Right. Helping him in his quest is his bar-hopping "wing-man" Barney (Neil Patrick Harris), a confirmed bachelor with plenty of wild schemes for picking up women. Ted's sights are set on the charming and independent Robin (Cobie Smulders), but destiny may have something different in mind. Told through a series of flashbacks, Ted recalls his single days, the highs and lows of dating and the search for true love.
I wasn't too impressed with the first season of How I Met Your Mother but against all my better judgement I decided to stick it out, plus, I wanted to know how things were going to go for Lily and Marshall (even though I knew that they were together beyond the first season). At least it's not a quick solution, it takes at least eight episodes for them to work things out, but their relationship seems pretty realistic enough and it's nice to see something that's pretty solid when compared to their other three friends.
There were a couple of episodes that I enjoyed more than the rest of the season, "Slap Bet" which gives us two on going jokes which has given way to some great moments later on down the track. Then there's "Stuff" which is quite good when it comes to what you hold onto from you previous relationships and what you then do with them. Whilst I found this season to be an improvement from the first season I still wasn't hugely hooked but it's an easy show to watch while my kids are running around and I can't focus 100% but want something going on in the background. Lets see what season three brings us.

The William Hartnell Years 1963-66
The TARDIS materialises not far from Paris in 1794 - one of the bloodiest years following the French Revolution of 1789. The travellers become involved with an escape chain rescuing prisoners from the guillotine and get caught up in the machinations of an English undercover spy, James Stirling - alias Lemaitre, governor of the Conciergerie Prison.
With many of the episodes missing footage but having found the audio, The Reign of Terror has been lovingly restored using striking animation.
