After watching this week's 200th episode of How I Met Your Mother, I'm actually starting to side with the people who were hoping the planned spinoff pilot would center on Cristin Milioti's "Mother" character's side of the story. While continuity and a mildly dated timeline would be obstacles, Milioti's episode demonstrate just how perfect she'd be as a lead character in a comedy.
If ever there was a make-or-break episode of How I Met Your Mother, it was last night's "How Your Mother Met Me," the episode that gave us a proper introduction to the titular mother. Oh, sure, Cristin Milioti has appeared in the series numerous times since she was first introduced to us at the end of last season, but the 200th episode flipped things around, focusing almost entirely on the Mother...
With How I Met Your Mother set to wrap up this year, fans of the CBS comedy have been left to wonder when and how Marshall would administer the two remaining slaps he owes Barney, left over from a slap bet he made with him years ago. The gag has spanned seasons, every once in a while resurfacing as Marshall delivers one more epic slap — usually when Barney’s not expecting it.
How I Met Your Mother’s end is approaching. That in itself isn’t news, as we’ve known for some time that the ninth season would be its last, but CBS has announced the date of the planned one-hour series finale for the comedy, which is set for late March. We also have some spoilery information about a certain How I Met Your Mother ongoing story-arc that will be resolved before this comedy wraps up for good.
The clip reveals the twist during last night’s episode of How I Met Your Mother, when Robin had reached the end of her rope and Barney admitted that sometimes he was going to have to lie to her. Or rather, that he would need to bamboozle her every once in a while. Robin’s Canadian-ness has been the source of many a joke on How I Met Your Mother...
How I Met Your Mother’s Season 9 eventful wedding weekend has so far managed to keep audiences interested and tie up a lot of loose ends. However, the long-awaited mother has been kept fairly under wraps, popping up in the plot only on occasion, and mostly through time-jumping sequences. Regardless, all of that is about to change, thanks to the comedy’s very special 200th episode.
Whether or not you’re a fan of the idea of How I Met Your Mother being spun off, it seems CBS is optimistic about the project as they’re moving forward with it. It’s currently titled How I Met Your Dad, and the latest update is that CBS has given the comedy a pilot-production commitment.
Forget Slapsgiving, this year How I Met Your Mother offers us “Bedtime Stories,” a “rhyming episode told in three tales,” which will air the Monday before Thanksgiving (November 25). An all-rhyming episode of How I Met Your Mother? It could be Slap-bet/Robin Sparkles-amazing or… well, it could be annoying by the end of the first act. The jury’s still out, but let’s stay optimistic here.
While some might argue that the draw of How I Met Your Mother has always been right there in the title, as we waited season after season for Ted to meet his kids' mother. But to be honest, my interest in the titular “Mother” and Ted’s quest for love has always been minimal by comparison to my appreciation for the format of the show, the humor, the characters and the excellent group dynamic among the fivesome of friends living in New York.
Bryan Cranston is heading back to How I Met Your Mother during the CBS comedy’s final season. The man hasn’t been a part of the HIMYM family since 2007, when he popped up on the series as one of Ted Mosby’s coworkers and later one of his underlings. In Season 9, he’ll return to the series playing the infamous Hammond Druthers.
Other little moments, like Ted giving Robin the photo we see in the opening credits, hinted that the show itself is aware of what a long 8 years it's been, and with only a wedding weekend to fill an entire season in real time I would count on many more flashbacks and moments for Ted-style nostalgia-- which, to be fair, the show has pretty much earned
While a handful of shows made their debuts last week, this week the major networks will begin to really roll out their fall programming. In addition to the return of some beloved series, tonight has a few new items on the menu, including a CBS comedy and two suspenseful looking dramas. Check out the trailers ahead!
It’s hard to believe it’s already September. As programs like Breaking Bad and Under the Dome are winding up their runs, new shows will be premiering on network and cable television over the next couple of months. Among these fall premieres in the ninth and final season of How I Met Your Mother. CBS hasn’t been shy about announcing the long-awaited ‘mother’ will play a large role in the series, and the network’s latest teaser gives us several good looks at the character.
Last winter, prospects for Ellie Kemper to find work after The Office seemed pretty great. The actress was busy putting together a pilot called Brenda Forever and she had numerous guest stints on her plate. However, NBC hasn’t moved forward with Brenda Forever at this juncture, and Kemper won’t even be popping up in that highly-touted episode of How I Met Your Mother we told you about just last month. Now, she’s being replaced by Pitch Perfect actress Anna Camp.
If the cover of this week's issue of Entertainment Weekly is any indication, we're in for a wild final season for How I Met Your Mother, or the characters are anyway. As they say somewhat regularly on the CBS comedy, it's gonna be legen - wait for it… The cover of the magazine shows us series stars Josh Radnor (Ted), Cobie Smulders (Robin), Neil Patrick Harris (Barney), Jason Segel (Marshall) and Alyson Hannigan (Lily). Who's missing?
