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.
If last week’s How I Met Your Mother was surprising, Monday's was a predictable let down. “Last Time in New York” signaled the final trip to the city for one of the gang, but the Big Apple deserved better. It’s not where they went wrong that worries us, it’s how long they’ll keep going in this direction.
The gang's all back for Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2, which finds Bill Hader's Flint Lockwood returning to the town he overran with food. As a second venture, this isn't on the level of Toy Story 2, which is the gold standard for kids film sequels (and sequels in general). That noted, it's nowhere near as insufferable as a...
How I Met Your Mother is back, but church bells aren’t ringing just yet. The final season will countdown to the hopefully happy ending of Barney and Robin’s wedding weekend. “The Locket” and “Coming Back” gave us a glimpse at the first two hours of festivities. What should be a life changing season could be a great goodbye or an exacerbated exit.
Guillermo Del Toro has finally found a replacement for the leading role in his upcoming thriller Crimson Peak. Late last month, the filmmaker lost Benedict Cumberbatch, but now the awesome Tom Hiddleson has stepped in to replace him. More details on that below. Also, the first trailer for Richard Ayoade's The Double, starring Jesse Eisenberg, has hit the web....
Because the universe we inhabit is a vast, frightening expanse in which meaninglessness rules all, chaos reigns, and horrors and terrors befall humanity for no other reason beyond the cruel and simple fact that they can, The Smurfs film nearly made $600,000,000 in 2011. As such, with a belly full of cold indifference, the universe (and Sony Pictures) has amassed its spirit-crushing...
The season finale of How I Met Your Mother has come and gone, but we’re still reeling. “Something New” introduced a character, but not the different direction we were promised. As the gang prepared for the wedding weekend, loose ends were fit to be tied, while others were still unraveling.
As How I Met Your Mother creeps closer to its season finale, troubles a foot. "Something Old" sheds light on Robin's marital fears, while Barney finds a new laser tag partner. While Robin's having problems getting reading for the wedding, we're bothered by a certain impending departure.
On How I Met Your Mother, it's time for the most momentous occasion of a guy’s life. But Barney Stinson isn’t any guy. “The Bro Mitzvah” is for the gentleman that lives by a code, and knows how to wear a suit. When The Karate Kid comes to play, you know things are going to get legen—wait for it—dary!
Soon, wedding bells will ring on How I Met Your Mother, or at least we hope so. “Romeward Bound” had The Captain tempting Lily with an amazing opportunity. Barney and Ted get a surprising ally in their quest to see more of Robin’s wedding planner. All jokes aside, he has us a little worried.
Last night's How I Met Your Mother made the future more exciting. Of course that's not hard to do when there's Future Ted and Barney's are all over the place. If that's not enough, Marshall and Robin do what they do best -- battle. Plus, those time travelers aren't exactly what they seem.
Last night, How I Met Your Mother returned in fantastic fashion. “The Fortress” featured several appearances by Jor-El's floating head from Superman’s Fortress of Solitude. There were also countless cool (and pantent-pending) household amenities. When anything that awesome is involved, Barney’s the main attraction.
On How I Met Your Mother, you just can’t have everything. “Weekend at Barney’s” answered a few lingering questions about Robin and Barney's union, but not without leaving a void. Ted found time to complain about the price of stamps, while Lily and Marshall made their first foray into the art world.
If you tuned in to How I Met Your Mother you may have seen some familiar things. “The Ashtray” retold the tale of the gang’s last encounter with The Captain (guest star Kyle MacLachlan). Were a few hidden gems from the past enough to keep us entertained?
Can How I Met Your Mother do no wrong? “Bad Crazy” didn’t just focus on Ted’s unbalanced paramour or Robin’s struggle to hold Marvin. It also made one thing very obvious: HIMYM is on a roll.
How I Met Your Mother gave us a heavy helping of Robin Sparkles. “PS I Love You” was all about her, and also addressed Ted’s latest dating disaster. While waiting for Sparkles' return, the show was renewed for its ninth and final season!
How I Met Your Mother is batting a thousand this year—so far. “Ring Up” saw our newly betrothed couple wrestling with reality now that they’ve made a commitment. The writers also reignited our love of something that’s been gone far too long. Trust us, you won’t want to miss reconnecting with a certain someone.
For How I Met Your Mother the future is now. “Band or DJ” tackled Barney and Robin’s impending nuptials and Marvin’s pesky constipation. After eight years, was last night’s episode enough to hook us for season nine?
The first eight minutes of How I Met Your Mother set high standards for the rest of the episode. Luckily, the hour-long presentation of “The Final Page Part One” and “The Final Page Part Two” lived up to its hype. Guest stars Seth Green and Peter Gallagher distinguished themselves on a night full of important moments. It was...
Last night's How I Met Your Mother taught us one thing: friendship means never having to return your friend's belongings. Also, “The Over-Correction” focused on Robin’s obsession with Barney. Are the writers any closer to giving us what we want?
