According to EW.com, an entertainment weekly magazine, the American sitcom ‘How I met your Mother’ has been voted as the best series in 2008.
‘How I Met Your Mother’ was first broadcast in September 19, 2005. The show was created by Craig Thomas and Carter Bays. The story is set in the year 2030, when Ted Mosby, the main character, tells his son and daughter the events that led to his meeting their mother, which explains the title and allows for a narration in the past tense through flashbacks from the future. So it could be said that it is a comedy about Ted (Josh Radnor) and how he fell in love. It all starts when Ted’s best friend, Marshall (Jason Segel), drops the bombshell that he’s going to propose to his long-time girlfriend, Lily (Alyson Hannigan), a kindergarten teacher. At that moment, Ted realizes that he had better get a move on if he too hopes to find his true love. Helping him in his quest is Barney (Neil Patrick Harris), a friend with endless, sometimes outrageous opinions, a penchant for suits and a foolproof way to meet women. When Ted meets Robin (Cobie Smulders), he’s sure it’s love at first sight, but destiny may have something else in store.
