Keep catching e4 repeats and spotting hints at the used ending.

The problem is, the show was too clever for it's own good. We didn't care enough to remember everything like we did with Friends because the episodes themselves weren't strong enough. So most of these very clever interweaving facts just passed me by, you'd probably have to watch an episode a few of times before you realised there was any connection at all and how it all fit together. Which most of us didn't, but a lot of us watched Friends episode quite a few times because...they were really funny!

The fact is if they spent the time and energy into the joke writing then you'd have a very re watchable series

A lot of us watched Friends quite a few times because they were always on C4 / E4 whenever you turned the TV on. Since they lost the rights to Friends, HIMYM & The Big Bang Theory repeats seem to fill all the available spare slots in their schedules. Give it a few years & you'll probably be as familiar with those shows as you were with Friends.

The early seasons of HIMYM hold up very well to repeat viewings IMHO.

I can't seem to watch HIMYM on the repeats. It just doesn't do anything for me as standalone episodes.

Whereas I can happily watch Friends or TBBT any time I am channel surfing.

I haven't worked out how to embed youtube on here yet, so no chance of me doing it for an insta video

I enjoyed it too

Computer's too old for a new operating system, operating system's too old to support new browsers. I'm largely living on 2010 tech... It'll do til I win the lottery.

Anyhoo, I found it elsewhere. Cobie singing a new version of 'Let's (not) Go To The Mall' for anyone wondering. Sweet!

Stick Ubuntu on a USB Stick and run it from that

My PC is from 2006 but running the latest Windows 10 absolutely fine.
