How I Met the New F.R.I.E.N.D.S.

A month ago, my usually dead boring Jeddah nights got a chance to turn laughter-filled, thanks to Ted, Marshall, Lily, Robin and (wait for it...) Barney! They make up, for the moment, my favorite pre-bedtime entertainment.

I never thought those guys would get me hooked. My only exposure to How I Met Your Mother (HIMYM) was when I occasionally got to catch an episode or two when I went to layovers in Jakarta or Riyadh. I'm a fan of TV series and I particularly like the ones which are light-themed. But so far, the only one I was really able to watch and enjoy from beginning to end was Friends, not only because I think it was well-written and really hilarious but also partly because it was an addiction I shared with my own best friends when we were in college.
