In a mostly-failed 21st-century version of Friends, How I Met Your Mother sets up with Ted Mosby recounting how he met his son and daughter's mother. Eight seasons later, the story is still more about the trials and tribulations of him and his best friends, but that hasn't stopped anyone from tuning in every week. Robin struggles to balance love and her career as an on-air reporter (and being Canadian), Lily and Marshall face figuring out life in New York with a new baby, and Barney went from manwhore to fiance in a few short episodes.
The creators have promised to introduce us to the mother at the end of this season, so here's hoping Barney will only have to say "Haaaaaaave you met Ted?" one more time.
