Trivia

The show's opening theme song and the photos displayed during it differ in only four episodes throughout nine seasons. "Hopeless" shows the main characters playing various instruments, "Bedtime Stories" is played to the tune of a music box, "46 Minutes" excludes Lily and Marshall after they move to the suburbs with new photos of Ted and Robin looking annoyed with Barney and "How Your Mother Met Me" shows Tracy with several of her friends. "46 Minutes" has a second version later in the episode to a Russian theme with Stripper Lily and her boyfriend. See more »

Cute Little Show
19 September 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I don't have much in the way of a review other than to say that based on the pilot, I think this show has a lot of potential to be a really good show. The cast is funny and endearing and the premise is fun. It might not be the most original idea for the show (think Wonder Years) but it has it's own little twist that should make for some interesting episodes. Hopefully next weeks episode will be just as watchable and entertaining. If you haven't checked it out, I recommend that you do. Alyson Hannigan and Neil Patrick Harris are the perfect complements to the show. The rest of the cast is somewhat unfamiliar to me though I must admit. I recall seeing Jason Segel in Freaks and Geeks, but I haven't really seen him in anything as impressive since so hopefully he'll bring the same originality he showed as Nick to his new character, Marshall. Josh Radnor is the newcomer in the bunch and he is just perfect for the part. He's cute yet dorky, with a lovable charm that will certainly endear him to many female viewers. I see only good things on the horizon for this show and I hope it finds a permanent home at CBS.
