I loved How I Met Your Mother and I love Hilarie Duff so of course I was interested in this spin off/sequel kinda off show How I Met Your Father. Last week we got the first 2 episodes and today I wanted to share my thoughts on them. Do I think this is going to be good and will I continue watching it? Lets find out!
Sophie and her close-knit group of friends are in the midst of figuring out who they are, what they want out of life, and how to fall in love in the age of dating apps and limitless options.
This show starts off pretty much like How I Met Your Mother. Sophie, our main character is telling her kid(s) how she met their father. At the end of the episode we get a clue about who that might be but we don’t know who it is yet! And while I already have a preference I think we’ll get some curveballs along the way!
The first episode ends with a really fun call back to the OG show and I think all fans will love that! What I also really enjoyed about these first episodes is the fact that we essentially have two friend groups and they are just meeting now. So we see them become great friends and that was very enjoyable. I love a focus on friendships and I hope we get to see a lot of that here.
The show starts off funny and enjoyable. It might not be as good as the original but I will definitely be watching the rest of the season. I really hope we get more seasons OR a reveal as who dad is because it would really suck if we were left hanging haha.
There are some great actors in here, some personal favorites of mine actually. And I’m super excited to see what they can do. I have a good feeling about How I Met Your Father and I really like the vibe of the show. Hopefully both old and new fans will get into this show! Have you watched the first episodes? Or do you plan on watching them? And what are your first thoughts? Let me know down below!
