As it turns out, Ted Mosby's (Josh Radnor) tale of how he met and eventually married the mother of his two children is a pretty long story, a saga that continues in the sixth season of this Emmy-winning sitcom that gets its kick from the ongoing mystery and a stellar ensemble cast. The series also stars Jason Segel, Alyson Hannigan and Neil Patrick Harris in an Emmy- and Golden Globe-nominated performance as Ted's womanizing friend, Barney.
After not enjoying the last season too much I was hoping that season six would bring back the zing that I like about this show and provide me with a good reason to keep on watching the show, and... it has, not by huge leaps and bounds but I did laugh more this season than last. Ted gets yet another girlfriend, though things are complicated to begin with, Barney beds more women and finds out something about his family, Robin is still working things out and Lily and Marshall work on starting their family.
This season features a big loss for one of our main five characters which is dealt with a good amount of both comedy and drama, it's not just brushed aside in favor of laughs or getting past it quickly which is good. We also finally meet Barney's father, which again, is dealt with well, adding in the comedy that we expect but also the drama for when things don't go as Barney expected or hoped. I was more than happy to sit down and watch several episodes in a row at a time and it hasn't taken me long to get through season six at all, I am rather looking forward to season seven.
