The Love Connection: The cast of How I Met Your Mother

At little junkies, we want to set you up with the best of the best so you’ll never be lonely. So, stop (!) in the name of love, and check out:

First stop: Adorable-ville

Names: (L to R) Lily, Marshall, Ted, Robyn, Barney
Occupation: (L to R) Kindergarten Teacher, Lawyer, Professor of Architecture, Early-Morning News Anchor, Unknown Executive
Residence: New York City, CBS

Likes: (L to R) shopping, cocoa fights, pulling-off Western-wear, guns, and conquests.
Dislikes: (L to R) the word “moist,” losing, being single, malls, and being bro-less.

What’s not to love about this cast? Everyone is adorable with a capital ‘A,’ they employ omniscient narration from Bob Saget, they have built a “hole-less” storyline, they work great cameo actors from the realms of Joss Whedon and Judd Apatow, their eerily right-on portrayal of northern Minnesotans and Canadians, and NP–wait for it–frickin’ H.

The show does not disappoint when it comes to following through with tie-ins. Here are the best examples:

  • The published version of Barney’s “Bro Code”
  • (created by one of Barney’s scorned lovers that thinks he is Ted Mosby)
  • Barney’s video resume
  • The web site dedicated to Barney’s loathed nickname: Swarley
  • The web site dedicated to Dr. X, Ted’s “popular” college radio personality
  • Robin Sparkles’ MySpace page

Most importantly, each of it’s now four complete seasons close with just enough mother-mystery and supporting storyline satisfaction. We may not know who the mother is, but I have yet to really care. I’m more interested in the next installment of the slap bet. This sitcom: pulling. it. off!

    Don’t forget that “Slap Bet” had it’s own countdown website! My favorite episodes revolve around slap bet :).

    Yeah, I think after it expired and the ep aired there wasn’t much of a need for it :(. I use to check that thing daily!
