The Popular Franchise How I Met Your Mother Is a Sitcom genre American television comedy series. The second season is the successor to the first season which was popular.The season was aired for the first time on September 18, 2006 amidst huge expectations and concluded on May 14, 2007.
The comedy series was broadcast on CBS in the United States and was telecast on E4 in the United Kingdom. The season consisted of 22 episodes with each of them having a runtime of approximately 22 minutes.
The show is a comedy revolving around Ted (Josh Radnor) and his love life. The story starts when Ted's best friend, Marshall (Jason Segel), drops the bomb that he's going to tell his love to his long-time buddy, Lily (
Alyson Hannigan), a teacher. At that moment, Ted understands that he had to keep moving in life if he too has the vision of getting true love.
Helping Ted is Barney (
Neil Patrick Harris), a friend of Ted. When Ted meets Robin (
Cobie Smulders), he's sure it's love at first sight for him, but destiny had something else for him. There is also the flashback of his past love.
The second season of this Comedy Serial is a love story narrated in reverse. It is a fresh new comedy about Ted and his love life. The series was narrated through flashbacks from future happenings about the five friends and their misadventure datings. The show is revealed from the outlook of the future self of Ted (played in our time by Josh Radnor, enacted in future by Bob Saget), narrating to his children the story of how he saw their mother, an unknown character that has not been introduced even after one season and is still kept in a suspense.
When the first season ended, Ted and Robin are finally engaged, but Marshall and Lily had parted ways. Season 2 is filled with stand-alone concepts that form the crux of the story.
The casting is excellent, but Harris's incomparable endearing smarminess that makes the show a laugh riot. The performance energy--combined with the smart use of flashbacks and other twisting story techniques makes How I Met Your Mother both sweet, spicy and a regular sitcom that tweaks the regular formula making it look like a fresh subject with a neat presentation.
