Dating your mother tv show
In 2012, seven years after its premiere, the series won the People's Choice Award for Favorite Network TV Comedy, and Neil Patrick Harris won the award for Favorite TV Comedy Actor.
The series concerns the adventures of Ted Mosby (played by Josh Radnor) narrating the story of how he met the mother of his children.
This future-set frame is officially the show's "present day" and How I Met Your Mother exploits this framing device in numerous ways: to depict and re-depict events from multiple points of view; to set up jokes using quick and sometimes multiple flashbacks nested within the oral retelling; to substitute visual, verbal or aural euphemisms for activities Ted does not want to talk about with his children (sexual practices, use of illicit substances, vulgar language, etc.); and even to add some elements of humor: in the episode "How I Met Everyone Else", Ted describes his dates with a girlfriend whose name he has forgotten, leading all characters to act as though her given name were "Blah-Blah"; later in the series, Ted remembers her name as Carol.
While the traditional love-story structure begins when the romantic leads first encounter each other, How I Met Your Mother does not introduce Ted's wife (Cristin Milioti) until the eighth-season finale, and only announces her name (Tracy Mc Connell) during the series finale.
As a framing device, Ted, in the year 2030, recounts to his son and daughter the events that led him to meet their mother.The show was nominated for 30 Emmy Awards, winning ten.In 2010, Alyson Hannigan won the People's Choice Award for Favorite TV Comedy Actress.If you haven't checked it out, I recommend that you do.
