How Do You Say “Suit Up” In Russian?

Now in its sixth season – and renewed for two more – CBS’ How I Met Your Mother is unstoppable. (And really great, too.)

It’s now popular enough to have earned a Russian remake, seen above. The question is, which owes more to the original: the Russian version, starring a guy who looks a little bit like Daniel Craig in Neil Patrick Harris’ role, or the recently-debuted Mad Love, a show also on CBS that borrows from HIMYM heavily?

Also, seeing trailers like this makes me wonder if there’s just a parallel T.V. world over in Russia, where that curly haired guy that plays the Jason Segel role also starred in a Russian Undeclared, but didn’t really break out until he was in a Russian Forgetting Sarah Marshall.

  1. The bizarro Slavic TV world exists. In Ukraine, there are lots of popular adaptations of British and American TV shows: Wife Swap, American Idol, and Married With Children(!) Not surprising that they’d take HIMYM too.
