Trivia

In the DVD commentary for the Pilot episode, Josh Radnor reveals that he is allergic to dogs, something the creators didn't know until Radnor was cast. That may have played a part in the decision to get rid of Robin's dogs in Season 2, when she and Radnor's characters are dating. See more »

Goofs

When Lily is approached by the girl that's been sabotaging Barney while he's trying to pick up girls, the girl's hair is wavy/curly - and her voice definitely not Britney Spears. Later we find out that the girl who talked to Lily was Abby, Britney's character, and the scene is shown again - this time with the actual Britney in it, straight hair and all. See more »

Quotes

Barney: Think of me like Yoda, but instead of being little and green I wear suits and I'm awesome. I'm your bro-I'm Broda!

User Reviews

This show is fantastic!
7 November 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I love this show!! It's one of the best sitcoms on the air and one of the best CBS shows!!! I disagree with the other comment - Barney is the best character. He's the funniest person on the show. I love how the entire ensemble has chemistry together!! It actually feels like they're friends in real life. And I don't think they need new writers, they just need to grow a little more. This show gets better with time. I laugh so hard with the show that my sides hurt every time I watch. I recommend this show to anyone that has a great sense of humor and wants to laugh until their sides hurt. I hope that this show has a long run on the air.
