How I Met Your Mother: Season 1 (2005 - 2006)


Season 1
How I Met Your Mother

Critics Consensus

How I Met Your Mother begins with a distinctively likable ensemble, intriguing storytelling hook, and an endearingly sweet sensibility right out of the gate -- but the jokes elicit more smiles than laughs and the series' sentimentality may divide more hearts than it conquers.

  • Jan 09, 2022
    Serie sitcom strepitosa, una di quelle che ti cambia la vita
  • Jan 07, 2022
    Great show! Hard to believe only a few years ago they used to produce shows like this. Funny, a bit raw and heartfelt. Half of this show would be considered offensive by the woke police! Glad we can go back and watch real entertainment without censorship!
  • Oct 08, 2021
    One of the worst seasons on the series yet it catches your eye, not many shows get off to a great start but himym nails it.
  • Aug 09, 2021
