Yes, I know it's summer and you're probably too busy doing fun outside things, but do yourself a solid and set your DVR to record the television show "How I Met Your Mother." Traditional sit-coms might not be as popular as they once were, but one show refuses to go quietly into thy good night. The premise is simple: 5 friends that live in New York. It's like Friends, but doesn't suck.* The main character is Ted, who is describing to his kid's in a very roundabout way, how he met their mother. There's some recognizable characters, as Barney is played by Neil Patrick Harris, and is downright awesome as a corporate lothario. Marshall, played by Jason Segel of Forgetting Sarah Marshall fame, is hilarious too.
