The maid vibes new york friends
Before being a rom-com, How I Met Your Father is a buddy sitcom. Around Sophie, we find Jesse (Chris Lowell), Valentina (Francia Raisa), Charlie (Tom Ainsley), Ellen (Tien Tran) and Sid (Suraj Sharma). They too have their Central Perk. No, it’s no longer the MacLaren’s of How I Met Your Motherbut the Pemberton, a bar run by one of them, where they spend their days and evenings, remaking the world and especially their sentimental lives…
Romance on all levels
Ted had his Robin. Marshall had his Lily. How I Met Your Father also knows how to play his sentimental card! The series is dotted with more or less serious romances. Above all, from the first episode, we see the first sparks appear between Sophie and Jesse, and we understand that their story will be the common thread of this whole story. Will he be the father in the end? As at the time of How I Met Your Motherdon’t swear to anything…
Hilary Duff as lead
The star of Lizzie McGuire and of Younger grew up. Here she is in the shoes of a thirty-year-old who has reached the crossroads of her youth. What will she do with her life? With all the charm we know for her and this playfulness that makes her mark, Hilary Duff embodies this desperately romantic photographer who is looking for her soul mate, in every corner of the Big Apple… Does this remind you of someone?
Many links with How I Met Your Mother
Ted Mosby spent 9 unforgettable seasons telling us how he met the mother of his children. Inevitably, the new series pays homage to the previous one, in many ways. With unfeigned nostalgia, How I Met Your Father connects with its glorious elder by establishing direct connections that will touch the hearts of fans of the original series. And more, some faces of How I Met Your Mother will even pass a head in this first season…
Kim Catrall at your service
The late Bob Saget only lent his voice to future Ted, recounting his youth to Penny and Luke. But in How I Met Your Father, it is Sophie’s son who is conspicuous by his absence. If we hear him comment on what his mother says to him, it is indeed her that we see! The camera is placed on the other side to film Kim Catrall, alias Sophie in her fifties. The former star of Sex and the City is the narrator of this story and she does not remain in the shadows!
