'How I Met Your Mother' recap: The Crazies

I almost used the headline “Burning Down the House” for this recap, but I decided to put that one in my back pocket until later. Later meaning when we get the full story about how Jeanette burns down Ted’s apartment.

We only got a small peek at the moment on last night’s episode (in the classic, “this happens later” How I Met Your Mother way), but one thing is pretty clear: This fire won’t be an accident. Yes, after seeing Jeanette in all her crazy glory tonight (talking to Marilyn Monroe’s cat via séance? Okay…), I think it’s safe to assume that the arson portion of this courtship will come after a huge, colossal meltdown that I can’t wait to see. Note: There should never be an “arson portion” of a courtship. READ FULL STORY

'How I Met Your Mother' react: Robin Sparkles returns...with an edgy twist!

“I’m so happy right now!” Lily declared towards the end of the episode, and who could blame her? She – as well as viewers – got to witness the fourth (and last?) Robin Sparkles single, “P.S. I Love You,” which featured a suddenly edgy Sparkles singing about a guy she may or may not have been stalking (Rewatch the amazing clip here!) But this episode of How I Met Your Mother showed that obsession can happen to the best of us when romantic gestures can so easily be misconstrued as something either cute or scary, depending on how charmed the recipient is. “There’s a fine line between love and insanity,” Ted explained, “and it’s called the Dobler-Dahmer Theory.” The Dobler-Dahmer Theory is based on the character from Say Anything and the serial killer, and was easily one of the most amusing (and accurate!) terms the show has coined in quite a while. How did this convenient explanation from Ted even come up? From the top! READ FULL STORY

'How I Met Your Mother' recap: Ted's 'Pretty Little' hook-up leads to a pretty big reveal

[Note: This is a recap, folks. So, as the word suggests, we’ll be talking about the episode. Don’t want to ruin the fun for yourself? Join our convo only after watching the latest episode of How I Met Your Mother.]

How I Met Your Mother spent the first half of its current season keeping the news of Barney and Robin’s impending engagement a secret from viewers. But after the cat was let out of the bag in the winter finale, I can’t help but feel like the truth has set them free.  READ FULL STORY

'How I Met Your Mother' recap: Holy confetti!

In the episode, Ted was having a tough time dealing with Robin and Barney’s engagement — even though we saw him “let her go” for the hundredth time back in December. But what can I say? This is Ted. Ted is always okay with everything until he realizes he’s not and then it eats him up inside. Oh, Ted.

Anyway, Ted masked all his pain by being overly eager to plan Robin’s wedding, which, in HIMYM land, will take place on May 25, 2013. He’d picked her colors (cream and lilac), a location (“that little church on Long Island where Victoria almost got married”), and had a binder of cake choices. Lily was one angry would-have-been-wedding-planner, and her inner beast really came out when she discovered that Ted wanted them to get a DJ instead of a band. (I was with Ted on that one.) Needless to say, the battle got heated. But later, Lily discovered that Ted’s issues with the wedding went far beyond musical choices. READ FULL STORY

'How I Met Your Mother' recap: Hide and Seek

What do we make of Barney these days, How I Met Your Mother fans? In just a few weeks he’s claimed to love Robin, rejected Robin, rejected a hot weather girl, and climbed his way into the arms of Robin’s suspiciously sweet co-worker Patrice. So…are these the actions of a crazy man? A hurt man? A crazy, hurt man? I’m not sure. But Ted had one theory, particularly about Barney’s new feeling toward Patrice: He was over-correcting.

What the hell is that, you ask? Well, in tonight’s episode, Ted explained that over-correcting is a reaction to great pain. In Barney’s case, after stripper Quinn failed to prove herself trustworthy, Barney has gone and found himself the opposite.

Robin had her own opinion: Barney was putting on a show/using Patrice! That wasn’t the case, of course, but she was determined to stop this friendship/relationship in its tracks. To do so, she set out to show Patrice the real Barneys. But to do so, Robin had to break into Barney’s apartment, find the Barney Bible (The “Playbook”), and show it to Patrice, who didn’t believe it existed. (WHY WON’T YOU LET ROBIN HELP YOU, PATRICE!)
