How I met "How I Met Your Mother"

For our early readers, you might recall that Sara and myself are huge How I met Your Mother fans. I have been a fan from the first episode, and if you don't watch it, I recommend it. It is, by far, the best show on television!
My godmother works for FOX, and arranged a set visit for me as part of my bday present. I was like a child on christmas all week looking forward to it, I tried on about 75 different outfits, and was just nervous. I got to meet the entire cast(minus Alyson Hannigan, who is about 17 years pregnant)

Yes, Jason Segal's arm is around me..I died. Cobie(Robin) is also pregnant , and she looked adorable. The would have to keep telling her to slouch during takes so her belly wouldn't show under the bar table!
This is Ted and Robin's apartment.


Their kitchen..I had never noticed how cute the stove was on the show



We got to see two scenes being filmed( they were pretty epic ones!) and I am still on cloud 9!

  8. Hi! I stumbled into this post and really liked it! As a fellow HIMYM fan, I just wanna say thanks for sharing it with all of us out there~ I have like a million questions and hope you'd be generous to answer a few...

    Did this set visit take place recently? Do you know which episode (in terms of the number) they were shooting? I've read quite a lot of news about the show lately, and it seems the ending of the current season will be full of interesting plots!

    I know that the show is not filmed in front of a live audience; I heard that they show the edited episodes to an audience and record the laughs. Have you found out (from your godmother or during the visit) how they get the audience? You know, live audience for other sitcoms usually get free tickets online or through the studio box office. Does HIMYM get their audience the same way?

    I'm just thinking how cool it is that they let you take pictures at the set (probably not during filming though, right)? I've been to a sitcom filming but of course no cameras allowed...

  17. Ohhh, thank youuuu!!! I found this post while searching for pictures of the HIMYM set. I do love Robin and Ted's apartment. And their kitchen! Thanks for posting the picture of the kitchen. I read that the set designer has won awards for the show, cool! Now, if only I could find pictures of Lily and Marshall's apartment, which is super cute, too...
