'How I Met Your Mother' recap: '...and it was legendary'

UPDATE: Recap is live! Monday’s episode of How I Met Your Mother, titled “The End of the Aisle,” was the series’ last new episode before next week’s hour-long season finale. 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.

I’ll back up…

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.”

Watch below to find out one of Radnor’s favorite HIMYM scenes to shoot, as well as why he’s currently sporting a beard. READ FULL STORY

'How I Met Your Mother' recap: Remember this...

I’m not ready to say goodbye. Well, yes I am. But also not. Actually, it’s ok. Not really. Ugh. Welcome to my brain for the last six weeks.

Here’s the problem: When How I Met Your Mother is good, it’s really, really good. And when encountered with one of those Really, Really Good episodes, my heart swells five sizes, I smile like I just found five accidental curlies in a basket of straight-cut french fries…and I also become very upset that How I Met Your Mother is almost over. Tonight’s episode — “Gary Blauman” — was one of those really, really good episodes of which I speak.

What made the episode — about a polarizing wedding guest Gary Blauman — particularly special was that it was told both as a story from Ted to the kids and from Ted to the Mother, who was hearing the tale three days after the wedding while she and Ted were on their first date. READ FULL STORY

'How I Met Your Mother' at PaleyFest: Five things we learned (and the shirtless actor we saw) -- VIDEO

The secrets of How I Met Your Mother‘s impending series finale stayed under wraps as ever during the latest stop on the cast and creative team’s Farewell Tour on Saturday night. But what did we learn at the PaleyFest screening and Q&A at the Dolby Theater in Los Angeles? Here are some of the highlights…including a detailed account of Neil Patrick Harris’ shirtless moment via webcam: READ FULL STORY

Neil Patrick Harris on Broadway return in 'Hedwig and the Angry Inch' -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

NPH-Hedwig-poster.jpg

Hedwig’s gonna put on some makeup, turn on the tape deck, and put the wig back on his head this season in the person of multi-Emmy winner Neil Patrick Harris, a.k.a. Greatest Tony Host Ever. Mr. Harris will be returning to Broadway in the first-ever Main Stem production of the already-classic rock musical Hedwig and the Angry Inch. The show centers on Hedwig, self-described “internationally ignored song stylist” who struggles with identity after a botched sex-change operation and rages against a former lover who’s used Hedwig’s music to craft a hugely successful career. (The production will shrewdly use Times Square — only a block away from Hedwig‘s current Broadway locale — as a backdrop for said lover’s rocketing success before large crowds.)

Since the show’s Off Broadway debut in 1998, which cemented the arrivals of star John Cameron Mitchell (Girls) and composer Stephen Trask (who later collaborated on the acclaimed 2001 film version), Hedwig has been the ultimate emo go-to, filling the void left by such benchmark 1970s alt-classics as The Rocky Horror Picture Show. The show even inspired a documentary and a (rather excellent) tribute album, which included such artists as Cyndi Lauper, Ben Folds, and Rufus Wainwright providing unique takes on the show’s score.

In the exclusive video below, watch the How I Met Your Mother star expound on the rigors of the role, adding that “you can’t phone this one in.” READ FULL STORY

'How I Met Your Mother' react: Lily's got a secret and the Mosby Boys return!

[Spoilers for Monday night’s How I Met Your Mother]

So it turns out, Lily does know how to keep a secret.

We’re in the final stretch of episodes before we have to say goodbye to How I Met Your Mother for good, and tonight’s installment did a great job of reminding fans exactly the combo of sweetness, smarts, and laughs we’ll be missing once the show goes off the air for good. From the top!

After a hokey beginning that showed Robin’s mother on the plane (channeling Kristen Wiig in Bridesmaids), Robin and her mom got to talking about Barney. Turns out, he’s got a lot in common with Robin’s father (Kevin, apparently you called it a few seasons ago!), which of course made Robin nervous, considering her parents’ marriage was such a disaster.

Meanwhile, Marshall, Ted, Barney, Ranjit, and Billy Zabka (!) were discussing Marshall’s recent knowledge that he was going to become a judge…but he was feeling weird that it came at the expense of Lily’s dream to move to Italy. Marshall pointed out they had had a big fight about it, Lily stormed out, and when she came back she was totally different about everything. Billy Zabka then added he saw Lily at the drugstore early that morning…and the license plate for the car she got into said “AHOY!!!” The Captain returns! READ FULL STORY

'How I Met Your Mother': The Mother says she's not going to die

Everybody breathe!

Cristin Milioti, The Mother, has debunked the recent theory that her character will die in the finale of How I Met Your Mother. When asked about the growing speculation, the actress told The Hollywood Reporter, “That’s insane. There are some crazy conspiracy theories, which really makes me love the fans more… That is so crazy.”

Of course, a careful reading shows she doesn’t actually deny anything. (Lance Bass and Joey Fatone also said it was crazy for there to be an *N Sync reunion at the VMAs this year…and we all know how that turned out.) But her shock does bode well that this comedy ending in a horribly upsetting way isn’t a completely forgone conclusion.

Elsewhere in the video, Milioti noted that the ending is exactly what creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas always planned. Calling it “beautiful,” she continued, “They’ve had this vision for nine years, and it’s in great hands. They know exactly what they want to do.”

Fans only have to drive themselves crazy for a few more weeks; How I Met Your Mother‘s hourlong finale airs March 31 at 8 p.m. ET on CBS.

'How I Met Your Mother': That Mother twist has to be a red herring. Right?

[Serious spoiler alert if you haven’t seen Monday’s How I Met Your Mother]

Monday on How I Met Your Mother, fans were brought 10 years into the future, where Ted and the Mother were recounting old stories. Ted revealed that Robin’s mom came to her wedding after all, which was a surprise to the whole gang. The Mother countered that this wasn’t really a surprise: “What mother is going to miss her daughter’s wedding?” Cue Ted tears.

As my colleague Sandra Gonzalez noted in her recap, the scene seemed to imply that the Mother dies in the future — and that’s why Ted started telling his kids this whole nine-year-long story in the first place. This theory isn’t exactly new; it’s been floating around fan pages online for years. (In many of the predictions, Ted then gets together with Robin.) But, to me at least, it always seemed unlikely. Well, not anymore! READ FULL STORY
