Forget Sheldon and co, this is something to ‘bazinga’ over in 2014: the end of ‘How I Met Your Mother’, after nine seasons of consistent sitcom laughs.
Sure, ‘The Big Bang Theory’ draws the big US ratings and Sheldon-alikes in droves, but in its own way ‘HIMYM’ is a comedy just as tailor-made for us geeks. With loveable loser-in-love Tim Mosby our guide through the trials and tribulations of its characters, ‘HIMYM’ has rewarded the faithful with in-jokes, callbacks and a twisty-turvy backwards narrative that it would take a PhD to put together.
The final season (despite inevitable chit-chat about spin-offs and the like, hmmm) looks set to be the ultimate treat for fans as it promises to tie up the central conceit of the show: the who, when, why, where and how of mommy Mosby. The trip down memory lane has already commenced in the States, but UK fans can expect the show to return for its final run in the next few weeks. Legend-wait for it-dary!
