It's a sitcom. But it's a sitcom with heart. I'd rather have an "Awww" moment then a "Haha! LOLz!" moment. Definitely an "Awww" moment than a "Whaaaa! I'm crying like a baby!" moment.
Sigh. I really need to get out more.
The "Awww" moment is when the love of Ted's life, the ONE
he was waiting for his entire life, the one he has the most in common with of ALL the women he dated, the one who is the mother of his children, dies? That wouldn't be my definition of "a sitcom with heart". More like a sadistcom.
