'How I Met Your Mother': What's the Mother's name? -- POLL

This is arguably one of the more minor questions going into Monday night’s series finale of How I Met Your Mother, but nevertheless, I’m curious: What do you think the Mother’s name is?

I know it doesn’t matter a great deal — whether she’s a Joan or a Latrine won’t change how we view the show. (Ok, Latrine might change it a little.) But, I’d count this nugget of info among the pieces of mythology that I assume has been long-planned, like the series finale itself. Thus, I wonder if her name is something that’s been hinted at before. READ FULL STORY

PopWatch Planner: 'HIMYM' series finale, 'Game of Thrones' premiere and more

Winter is coming? It feels like it never left. Perhaps the chill in the air is lingering for the season 4 premiere of Game of Thrones, airing April 6.

Either way, here are the excellent reasons to continue hibernating over the next seven days: READ FULL STORY

'HIMYM' cast answers the famous 'Inside the Actors Studio' questionnaire -- VIDEO

The cast of How I Met Your Mother is doing a lot of reminiscing leading up to Monday’s series finale. Some of it involves tears, but there is plenty of laughter, too. On Inside the Actors Studio, however, reflecting on nine seasons of sitcom magic includes talking about what turns Barney on — and it might not be what you expect.

Josh Radnor, Jason Segel, Cobie Smulders, Neil Patrick Harris, and Alyson Hannigan sat down with host James Lipton on Thursday’s episode, and per usual, the conversation started with the Bernard Pivot Questionnaire. The cast members answered as themselves, as well as in character. From the word that makes Radnor absolutely cringe to Barney’s legendary answer to that most amorous question, find out what the crew had to say in this video:

'How I Met Your Mother': How we picked our top 50. Plus: What are your picks?

A question like ‘What’s your favorite episode of How I Met Your Mother?’ can prompt dozens of possible answers. Some fans like the humor of “Slap Bet;” some like the emotion of “Last Words;” some think the the show has never been better than when it introduced “The Naked Man” (two out of three times!). And, well, some are still waiting for that magical moment when Ted finally (finally!) meets the Mother.

So when EW’s HIMYM superfans set out to rank our Top 50 episodes, we knew the task wouldn’t be easy. First, we went through the entire show, dividing the episodes into 8 rough groups based on quality (RIP, “The Burning Bee Keeper”). After re-familiarizing ourselves with early-season hidden gems, we had a list of about 75 contenders. That’s when the debates began — and the chats resembled the HIMYM gang’s arguments at MacLaren’s, minus the booze. (Sample: “‘How Your Mother Met Me’ is simply a perfect 30 minutes of television. Lawyer’d.”)

'How I Met Your Mother': Remembering Slap Bets, the Lemon Law, and more

How I Met Your Mother is known for many things: A sweet love story, a surprisingly heavy mythology for a comedy, an episode structure that gives fans one tiny morsel of information about twice a year, etc.

But one of the most enjoyable aspects about the long-running comedy is its ability to coin catchphrases that speak to some real issues in the modern world. I mean, how would we solve disputes without Slap Bets? (Relax. Rhetorical question. You shouldn’t slap people in the face.)

Lindsay Lohan is just like you! (No, she’s not.)

But, like you, she’s apparently really upset about How I Met Your Mother ending. During an appearance on Billy Eichner’s show, Billy on the Street, Wednesday night, the duo dealt with their HIMYM feelings the way anyone would: By taking sledgehammers to a car decked out with decals of the How I Met Your Mother cast. “What am I supposed to do with my Monday nights now?” Eichner said at a normal volume screamed.

Your full recap of tonight’s episode is on the way, but as the series prepares to wind down, we want to get the discussion going ASAP.

VOW-za, guys. Vow-za.

I’m moved. I’m smiling. I’m crying rivers of happy tears.

I always knew the writers of How I Met Your Mother could do a several things extremely well. Craft masterful inside joke, for example. Or create a catchphrase that somehow weaseled its way into ours everyday lives. But what am I going to miss most when this show takes its final bow next week? Basically the last four minutes of every episode that ever resonated with me.

This week, as the titled of the episode indicated, Barney and Robin finally reached the end of the aisle. They got married. But wrapped up into this long, long, long, long, long, long-awaited ceremony were lessons about love and honesty and bears. Ok, maybe just the first two were important.

Fans of How I Met Your Mother‘s Ted are probably going to want to grab some tissues.

After How I Met Your Mother‘s PaleyFest panel this past week, the cast stopped by to talk to EW — where we proceeded to ask Josh Radnor what he is going to miss most about playing Ted. “Some days he really frustrated me, and other days I thought, ‘This guy is great,’” Radnor explained. “So I had a proper relationship with him….He can be really heroic; he’s such a loyal friend, he’s so passionate, he’s optimistic, he’s persistent to say the least.”
