Some TV shows just don’t translate that well into other cultures. For instance, “Coupling” was the British answer to “Friends,” but when we tried to Americanize the show after our own Rachel and Ross departed, something got lost in the translation. Likewise, “Ugly Betty” didn’t fair well with audiences in Hungary, even after a less mean-spirited title change to “Who is That Girl?” Columbia also wasn’t a big fan of the show.
But as far as we can tell, the Russian adaptation of “How I Met Your Mother” is going to do gangbusters in the post-soviet nation thanks to the broad pratfalls, eye-popping facial expressions, and the near-limitless supply of drinks to throw at one another that has been such a staple of the CBS show since its inception. Can you figure out who is who in the Russian cast?
Ted is pretty easy to figure out. I’m guessing Barney is the guy in the suit, and the one with the weird hair is Marshall? If we’re assuming this is the first season, the woman blowing Russian Ted off would be Robin, and the blond lady is Lily.
Now if only we could find out who the mother was!

World's best pie apple. Essential for Tarte Tatin. Has five prominent ribs.
So pretty. So early. So ephemeral. Tastes like strawberry candy (slightly).
My personal fave. Ultra-crisp. Graham cracker flavor. Should be famous. Isn't.
High flavored with notes of blood orange and allspice. Very rare.
Jefferson's favorite. The best all-purpose American apple.
New Hampshire's native son has a grizzled appearance and a strangely addictive curry flavor. Very, very rare.
Makes the best hard cider in America. Soon to be famous.
Freak seedling found in an Oregon field in the '60s has pink flesh and a fragrant strawberry snap. Makes a killer rose cider.
Ben Franklin's favorite. Queen Victoria's favorite. Only apple native to NYC.
Really does taste like pineapple.
