How I Met Your Father Episode 1 Review

The new spin off of How I Met Your Mother which is How I met your father premiered two episodes on 18th January 2022. Certainly it will not be the same trend, cast and act but same concept. No, not in the Matrix sense, but in the idea that somewhere out there you have a soulmate, and you have to keep meeting people until you find them.

That’s pretty much the first thing we learn about Sophie, other than that she is still alive in 2050 (played by Kim Cattrall), and apparently has nothing better to do on her evenings than call up her son to tell him longwinded stories of her youth (the show wisely decides to show Cattrall rather than just have her speak in voiceover).

Season 1 episode 1 of How I met your mother begins when Sophie meeting her friends, Sid and Drew. This is a throwback of how the journey of Sophie meeting the love of her life. Now we know at this time one of the main characters owns a bar and that is Sid. (We would not want to compare with HIMYM)

The excitement in Sid’s actions and eyes clearly indicates she has met an amazing person but on the contrary he is about to mess it all up. Sophie talks about her new date and how her previous dates went. She is feeling herself up and waiting to build her love life up, although she has not met the guy(Ian) in person but only on tinder.

Sophie meets up with Ian at their chosen location, they both talk about life and movies. Ian drops the bomb about leaving New York and going to work in Australia. The gloomy face of Sophie tells how disappointing it can be to meet someone amazing in a day and that is it. Ian admitted his desperation of meeting Sophie and that is why he is telling her now about moving to Australia for his new job.

We can say the episode 1 of HIMYF does not really match with HIMYM but there are a couple of similarities you can mention here and there. We can look at the bar, the apartments and their chemistry. This has got a great twist and we can tell it is going to be “le-gen-dary”
