We have been speed watching the 5th season to get my fiance all caught up with the show, as she's been a season behind for the last couple of years. Actually, that's my only complaint. The DVD always comes out after the new season starts. I digress...
Really, this is another fun season as we get to follow the adventure of how Ted will finally meet THE ONE. Heck, we even get to sneak a peak of her... or part of her.
If you've enjoyed the show through 4 seasons, this one will fall right in line. There were a couple of episodes where I went "oh baby, this one is awesome!" in anticipation.
The story telling is wonderful and the continuity from one season to the next is impeccable. Rarely does a show stick to it's guns and their previously told stories like this show.
