Wait for it…SUUIIIITTSSSSS!

How I Met Your Mother season 5 is now out on DVD and Blu-Ray.  We may not have gotten to know much about Ted’s future wife (other than she’s the roomie of Rachel Bilson’s character) but this was a solid season of the show. What’s more, I have decided that HIMYM is a show that can successfully make your otherwise boring Sunday’s feel less soul-sucking. I prescribe episodes of HIMYM for every Sunday to ward off the icky (and read this with a slight whine) “oh man, it’s Sunday” feeling.

Sit back with this special Suited Up feature of the DVD (or Blu-ray) and get ready for special guests Rachel Bilson,  Judy Greer, Tim Gunn, Amanda Peet, Chris Elliot, Chris Kattan, and Jennifer Lopez, plus 24 entire episodes for a major marathon.

And I know that when it comes to the DVD/Blu-ray, what you really want to know about is the special features!

How I Met Your Mother DVD Special Features:

● Bloopers/Gag Reel: Including Alyson Hannigan squealing, “I kissed Neil!”, NPH accidentally grabbing Cobie Smulder’s right breast, Jason Segel calling about child-bearing crackers, Josh Radnor cracking up at Segel, Hannigan trying to deal with a baby pig, and the cutest blooper scene where we see Segal and Hannigan (plus Radnor) sitting in a car, waiting, and Segal says, “Whoever has their headphones on I’d like a caramel apple cider from the coffee truck.” Then Hannigan, so sweetly and motherly suggests, “Do you want not too much carmel, because it’ll be too sweet?” And Segel replies, “Yea. But there’s gotta be someone around who can hear me. I work pretty hard for you guys. God forbid Jason Segal got a break. So if anyone could maybe….” It’s hilarious. Then there’s a montage that’s not really bloopers so much as funny HIMYM season 5 moments, but who cares?
● Music Videos
– Super Date (When they faux skate it slays me.)


– Nothing Suits Me Like A Suit (We all know this is epic, right? Oh, man. Love this.)
– Best Night Ever
• Making of Super Date
(This involved a lot of green screen, props and people behind the scenes.)
• Wedding Bride Trailer (From wedding bride to marriage wife. Let’s do this!)
• 100th Episode Behind the Scenes (This is exciting for me because I was talking to Alyson Hannigan in an exclusive interview right before they shot this episode. And we talked a lot about how she was going to get a piece of their cake. And in this feature we see the cake! I hope she got some! We also get to see the table read, and cast/crew interviews. And then we see NPH calling Tim Gunn the MVP of Project Runway. I have SO MUCH love for both Tim Gunn and NPH.)
• Series Recap (It’s a musical set to images from the show! Told from the perspective of Ted’s future daughter. This is an original song written and first uploaded by a girl on Youtube! (Who I’ve heard before when she sang a song about The Guild!)  “I don’t want to suit up or be a hanging chad. I don’t care about the Bro Code, so please shut up Dad.” Full lyrics below!*)

*Lyrics to “A Daughter’s Lament” the Series Recap Lyrics:

I don’t want to know every small detail
I don’t need to know everyone my uncle nailed
I don’t see the point of telling this at all
Why must we keep hearing “Let’s Go To The Mall”?

I already know who you’re going to marry
This is so not Raven, much less legendary
This is the longest story ever told
I can’t wait until Mom gets home
Why is this happening to me?
And oh my God, I really have to pee

I don’t want to suit up or be a hanging chad
I don’t need the Bro Code, so please shut up, Dad
The rules of Baskiceball don’t apply to me
I don’t care about every time you saw Ranjit

I already know who you’re going to marry
This is so not Raven, much less legendary
This is the longest story ever told
I can’t wait until Mom gets home
Why is this happening to me?
And oh my God, I really have to pee

I’ve sat through…
Goats and Hot-Crazy scales
So many epic fails
Pineapples, “Have you met…”
Sword fights and slapping bets
Robots that fall in love
Nights in McClaren’s pub
Rain dances, “Murder Train”
This is a major pain
Major Pain, laser tag
Ted Mosby, architect
Revertigo, magic tricks
Lighting up “sandwiches”
Canada, perfect weeks
Vomit free since ’93
Storm troopers, Tootsie Rolls
Lemon laws, tricycles
Fiero milestones
Underground radio
But, um…a Smurf penis
Drinking Orange Julius
Apartment luge, new year’s eve
Rocking with fake!Moby
Innkeepers, Lebanese
Working at GNB
“Wait for it” and Stella
Loud chewing, umbrellas
Crazy eyes, deja dates
Video resumes
Tramp stamps and relapse fives
Teaching Barney to drive
Cockamouse, Metro News
Loch Ness-y honeymoon
Ted Mosby is a jerk
I’m going to go berserk

This is the longest story ever told
I can’t wait until Mom gets home
Why is this happening to me?
And oh my God, I really have to pee
Oh my God, I really have to pee
