How I Met Your Mother was once one of my absolute favourite shows. I liked to think I ‘discovered’ it, tuning in every week to its niche time-slot and raving about it, quoting it, sharing it with everyone I could. I bought it on DVD and the guy that sold it to me said “is that Willow from Buffy? She looks hot!”
Fast forward several years and it’s one of the most popular shows around and I’ve stopped watching. Why? We’ll get into that in a bit, but for now, I recently decided to throw in my aforementioned copy of the season 1 DVD and take a trip down memory lane.
