A guilty pleasure we have is How I Met Your Mother, another fairly formulaic sitcom about a group of attractive young people living in New York. What differentiates it is great character work (Neil Patrick Harris, Jason Segel, Alyson Hannigan), Canadian jokes, and a few wonderfully bizarre side plots. For instance, they have an intervention and have such a fun time they start having more interventions. They have so many interventions they eventually have to have an intervention to stop having interventions. It sounds silly, but it works. The Cash For Clunkers Bill has some wondering if they should crush their beloved cars. Props to everyone who started an intervention and stopped one such reader from doing the same, especially Gas Guzzler.
Kinja is in read-only mode. We are working to restore service.
