    its seems more like what was my life before I met your mother. That's How I meet your mother, a CBS tv show aired in 2005 which had his final episode on March 31, 2014.

    Ted is the conexion for the New York gang, he meets his roomate Marshall who falls in love with Lily Aldrin. After college, he meets Barney who introduces him to Robin Scherbatsky with the worldwide known phrase "have you met Ted?".

    The story actually starts in 2005, although moves back and forward through time, when Ted tries to hit on Robin in his search for the woman of his life. Meanwhile, his college sweathearts, Lily and Marshall plan to get married after many years of dating. Barney is Ted's wing man and helps him to get ladies, even when he uses odds methods.

    The sitcom is hillarious and had many great episodes during 9 seasons, even when some fans think that the show deteriorated after season 5, more or less. In spite of Ted being the main character, the best one is Barney Stinson and his legen-wait for it-dary Playbook.

    Hannibal Lecter-esque serial killer inspired by the works of Edgar Allan Poe (James Purefoy). The premise is fairly ludicrous, but no more so than the average network police procedural, and there's always the possibility that the very strong cast will find a way to elevate some of the more ridiculous material.
