your mom is hot

Okay, I've recently begun to watch How I Met Your Mother and I am in love. I don't know why I didn't start watching it when it began a few years ago. Actually, I remember hearing about it and made a mental note to watch it, but somehow, never did. Even last year with Britney Spears was a guest star, I recorded that episode, but then deleted it without watching it, since I knew I'd be confused as to who everyone was and what they were doing.

I recently added seasons 1-3 to my netflix queue and am about halfway through season two. Last night I saw the episode where Ted and Robin disagree about getting rid of things from exes. I will admit that I saw a spoiler for this season finale, but I wasn't too upset, because I still have no idea what happens between now and then (with a whole season three in between!).

My question is this- do we ever find out who the mother is? I have no idea if it will or will not end up being Robin or someone else. I guess what I mean is, when the producers began with this, is there a certain end-date in mind, ie, it will run for five seasons? Something like that?

Any insight?

PS. Don't write spoilers, I don't want to know! Unlike shows like The Hills and Gossip Girl, where I am constantly reading the spoilers, with HIMYM, I don't want to find out!

PPS. If you don't watch this show, you should! I resisted for far too long, and now it's love.

PPPS. Edit, as of 3:05 and after comments from Megan and Mel- I know that the grownup Ted always says Aunt Robin, leading us to believe that she isn't their mother, but maybe that's just a ploy? :)

I've just started watching, too-- downloaded episodes, some of which have Swedish subtitles (language-learning bonus!). I love it, too! I don't think that Robin ends up being the mother, because Ted always refers to her as "Aunt Robin" before they get together (right? I might be mis-remembering this)...I am already sort of waiting for them to break up (I'm in mid-season 2), because, while a cute couple, I feel like that breakup is inevitable.

I don't think its Robin b/c like Megan said they always call her "aunt robin".

I was about to write something then I realized it may be a spoiler.

I love this show! I've been watching it since it came on. For that fact do you watch Big Bang Theory? Love it!

oh how i adore this show! sadly, i'm pretty far behind on this season! do you know if it's been renewed for next season or not??

Man, it's hard not to write a question without it being a spoiler!!

All I have to say is: SUIT UP! because this show is LEGEN-wait for it-DARY. Oh yeah! Up high! ;)

this is one of those shows i dread being addicted to because of the reason you bring up. if i watched religiously for years and then they cancelled it and NEVER told me who the mom was i would die. just die.
so i watch it sporadically, but i do love it. it's not one you have to worry about missing an episode on, you can totally jump in wherever you want and enjoy the show. of course i believe i began watching because i've had the hots for Doogie for... well, since Doogie was cool.
