On the series finale of How I Met Your Mother the gang perishes in a fiery oblivion, only for The Mother to find out she dreamed the whole thing in a coma. April Fools! “Last Forever Parts One and Two” speeds through life after Barney and Robin’s wedding. Though everyone gets what they want, the end is bittersweet.
How I Met Your Mother issued its warning shot last night. "The End of the Aisle" was a bittersweet penultimate episode, in more ways than one. If the series finale is anything like this, it's going to be legen--wait for it--dary!
How I Met Your Mother has a host of small characters with far-reaching roles. “Gary Blauman” may not be someone you readily recognize, but you’ve seen him before. Everyone has to say goodbye on HIMYM but some don't always do it the right way.
Last night, the Mosby boys returned to How I Met Your Mother, and they weren't the only ones. “Daisy” centered on a secret Lily’s been keeping, and Robin’s mother causes more trouble than expected.
Last night's How I Met Your Mother was supposed to explode but instead it imploded. “Vesuvius” was supposed to rely on Barney’s suit’s and Lily’s fights for fireworks. Instead, a tiny inkling blew up the entire episode. Prepare yourselves: This isn’t a happy thought.
On How I Met Your Mother the gang goes on one bender after another. “Rally” tells the story of Barney’s hangover the morning of his wedding. We’ve all been there before, but no one handles a drunken debacle like these guys.
The end is near on How I Met Your Mother. “Sunrise” saw the beginnings of Robin and Barney’s wedding day and the conclusion of two major conflicts. There are only six weeks left in this swan song, and after last night it’s going to be hard to say goodbye.
Last night’s How I Met Your Mother was like a game of "where were they when" edition of Connect the Dots. “How Your Mother Met Me” revisited all those almost moments between the show’s most elusive soul mates. It was nice seeing things from a different point of view, but last night may have proved that we’re more interested in ending a story before we start a new one.
Even on How I Met Your Mother you can’t escape the truth forever. “Unpause” gave us a glimpse into the early hours of Barney and Robin’s wedding day, but last night we only had eyes for Marshall and Lily. As we all know, “Nothing good happens after 2 a.m.” Since the whole episode takes place after the timestamp, it was just a matter of time until something went...
On How I Met Your Mother one thing will always reign supreme: the slap-bet. All these years later Marshall's still cashing in with “Slapsgiving #3: Slappointment in Slapmarra.” Last night had everything—a tour of Barney’s more notable ex-girlfriends, new puns and a special serenading guest spot. Still, something important was missing from all the excitement.
Finally, How I Met Your Mother serves up a real hit. “Bass Player Wanted” featured the Mother and the measured hand of the show’s creators. Although this is a great episode, it took way too long for it to get here.
Weddings are never easy, but How I Met You Mother proves they can get better/worse when Barney Stinson's involved. “The Rehearsal Dinner” was the kind of spectacle we expect from the Barnacle, mixed with the disappointment this season's taught us to anticipate.
How I Met Your Mother has always been unique, and last night was no different. “Bedtime Stories” helped Carter Bays and Craig Thomas reclaim their title as creative kings with this all rhyming episode. James Van Der Beek returns for a night so special even the theme song was a lullaby.
On this week's How I Met Your Mother, siblings just don’t understand. “Mom and Dad” are something for Barney and his brother to fight over. William Zabka returns and reprises his role as the thorn in Ted’s side. But fortunately, it looks like Sherri Shepherd might be done being a thorn in ours.
That uneasy feeling How I Met Your Mother's been giving us all season has finally disappeared. In “Platonish” we’re starting to see things with new eyes. Bryan Cranston returns to the show as The Mother gets a chance to win our hearts. This is one episode no fan should miss.
There’s a lot to love in this week’s How I Met Your Mother. “The Lighthouse” is the scene for two very different realizations for Ted. Sweet as one may be, the writers may be rushing things just a bit.
This week on How I Met Your Mother the less you ask the better. “No Questions Asked” introduces us to the Night Falcon, and one very common clause. The truth is something your friends can blindly ignore, but how long will that work on the love of your life?
How I Met Your Mother still knows how to surprise. “Knight Vision” rested on the laurels of another classic movie saga parody. Don’t worry, you’ll love every minute of it. Here’s a hint: It’s not exactly Weekend at Bernie’s, and it wants to be Star Wars.
The How I Met Your Mother gang needs a refresher in wedding gift giving. “The Poker Game” deals with more than just Ted and Marshall’s etiquette war — Barney and Robin engage in a family battle of their own. Both are equally hilarious, but someone takes things a little too far.
How I Met Your Mother returns to the pattern of nearly good yet far from great episodes. “The Broken Code” was supposed to be a big deal, but something about Ted and Barney’s confrontation was off. The night wasn’t a complete waste—a Tim Gunn cameo is never a bad thing—but there was definite room for improvement.
