*How I Met Your Mother: Season Six* It's the sixth season of How I Met Your Mother. This was one show that didn't grab me right away. Before this, the last time I had seen Neil Patrick Harris on television was way back in the late '80s and early '90s as the teenaged genius doctor Doogie Howser, MD, and on the big screen it was 2004's Harold and Kumar. The other familiar name was Alyson Hannigan. I remembered her as Willow from Buffy the Vampire Slayer - and who could forget what she did, one time, at band camp (with her flute) in 1999's American Pie.

*How I Met Your Mother: Season Six* The rest of the cast were unknowns to me. But after seeing a few episodes here and there, the show grew on me. The show is about Ted Mosby (Josh Radnor) in the year 2030 relaying the story of how he met his wife to his son and daughter. The voice of Ted in the future narrating how he indeed met his wife is Bob Saget of Full House fame.

*How I Met Your Mother: Season Six* Like most fans, I think it was the known actors who drew me in at first. You have to love how well Neil Patrick Harris plays creepy, horny guy Barney Stinson. I'm sure most women in bars (or anywhere, really) have had experiences with this type of guy. But soon enough I grew to like all the characters in the cast. The name recognition initially drew me in, but the show really grew as an ensemble comedy, with each one playing an important role in the chemistry of the group of friends. I have to admit, though, that Barney is still my favorite.

Season six of How I Met Your Mother has all the comedy you've come to expect, but this season is more mature in several ways. For instance, Marshall (Jason Segel) and Lily (Hannigan) spend almost the entire season trying to conceive; Barney tries to reconnect with his dad; and Ted gets his big project at GNB: to demolish a "landmark" that the woman he loves, Zoey (former House resident Jennifer Morrison), is trying to preserve, and all the conflicts that brings to a relationship. Marshall loses his father to a sudden heart attack, and Barney denies having feelings for a woman he's met named Nora (Nazanin Boniadi).

Robin Scherbatsky (Cobie Smulders) isn't having any love troubles (other than everyone knowing her boyfriend, Max, has a small pee-pee), but she is the brunt of jokes at work and with the friends. At her new job, a former co-worker also happens to get a job there, and he pulls out a highlight reel of all her on-air faux pas. At home, the guys find a DVD of her in her younger days on a Canadian children's show that was at one point obscenely phallic. So, season six of How I Met Your Mother: full of laughs and poignant moments.
