How I Met Your Mother is a legendary comedy, but Barney is the real legend. He's so funny, he'll steal your heart...and your scene. The rest of the cast is great too, but Barney is the glue that holds it all together. The first season is a bit slow, but stick with it. And whatever you do, don't watch the finale. It's a hot mess. But overall, this show is a must-see for fans of comedy. It's impossible not to laugh.
