First off: a little history, on one of my favorite shows on television currently: How I Met Your Mother. Produced by Bob Saget, this series has been one of the most successful sitcoms in the last decade.

Focused around finding the mother to Josh Randor’s (Ted Mosby) kids, this show entails the scenarios and adventures taken by Ted, and his four friends, who all reside in New York, which is claimed to be the best city on Earth. The people who claimed it: Lily, Marshall, Robin, Barney and Ted. Every character has a different outlook on life, and thus, the series makes up for an interesting mixture of a ladies man, a perfect lover, and hard core dating enthusiast. Combined with the two ladies of the show, with each of them being best friends, while being completely different, adds to the excitement of How I Met Your Mother, and is one of the few reasons why it is my favorite show.

As the mother has been revealed most recently, many fans were disappointed by the selection and were cursing themselves for watching this show from the beginning. While some might have been disappointed to see the mother being someone new, I loved the idea of it being a cute, yet not hot actress, who would totally match the character of Ted Mosby. Enough history, and now, the following are ten reasons why How I Met Your Mother is the greatest show on television currently.
