'How I Met Your Father' premiered on Hulu dropping two episodes and Twitter was torn between 'cute' and 'meh'. The sitcom, a spinoff of the classic 'How I Met Your Mother' was one of the much-awaited shows of 2022 and while first-time viewers with less knowledge of the OG show enjoyed it, the ardents seemed to be less pleased.

The series sees Hilary Duff and Kim Cattrall play the lead role, with the pilot will be directed by Pam Fryman, who directed a major chunk of the sitcom. Fryman directed 196 out of 208 episodes and although the show finale had fans were happy to see the same creative minds who gave the spinoff the same treatment, although it lacked some punch. Fan reviews were pretty mixed. "First episode of How I Met Your Father is cute. Not sure if I'll stick with it but not like I watch that much anyway," one of the tweets read.
