Review of Season 1: Episodes 1-4
3 February 2015 | by (Lithuania) – See all my reviews

Greetings from Lithuania.

"How I Met Your Mother"(2005-2004) first four episodes were nice and sometimes good comedy. Downside for me that it was a bit to sweet, when it could be more fun, Actors were OK, with the best and the most funny one from Neil Patrick Harris. This is a sweet comedy, with some heart in a good place, but unfortunately that is sometimes (as in this case) aren't the best things to keep the comedy work. Don't saying you won't like it, but if you like more black humor, this one could look a bit to sweet.

Overall rating for episodes 1-4 is 8/10.
