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:
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”
- TedMosbyIsAJerk.com (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!
