In a twist on the usual romantic comedy How I Met Your Mother tells the story in a kind of backwards way. Ted (played by Josh Radnor) is married to the woman of his dreams and is telling his kids the story of how he met their mother. This leads to him telling them about every date he went on or relationship he had before their mother. With each woman he meets and dates we the audience wonders if she is the one. It is a unique and often hysterical look at dating and falling in love.
Episode 1: Where Were We?: Marshall (played by Jason Segel) is crushed over Lilly (played by Alyson Hannigan) calling off the wedding.
Episode 2: The Scorpion and the Toad: Barney (played by Neil Patrick Harris) tries to improve Marshall
