It seems like everyone, with or without HBO, knew about the Game of Thrones Red Wedding episode — which could explain why the show once again tops TorrentFreak’s annual list of the most pirated TV shows. Per the site, GoT‘s season 3 finale bloodbath was downloaded an estimated 5.9 million times via BitTorrent. After the show topped the charts in illegal downloads in 2012, HBO programming president Michael Lombardo told EW he considered it, “a compliment of sorts”: “The demand is there. And it certainly didn’t negatively impact the DVD sales. [Piracy is] something that comes along with having a wildly successful show on a subscription network.” READ FULL STORY
Tag: How I Met Your Mother (41-50 of 251)
Having people in your life who you’d do anything for — even go to jail — that’s the dream, so said Barney at the top of tonight’s How I Met Your Mother. And right he is. But as he — and we — were reminded this hour, sometimes one of the best things you can do for someone you care about is let them go.
But how did we arrive at such a poignant lesson? A troublemaking wedding attendee named Darren (Andrew Rannells) is partly responsible and I’ll explain how in a bit. First, let me tell you about Darren, the emotional proctologist who caused a lot of problems for the gang in tonight’s fall finale. READ FULL STORY

Tonight’s How I Met Your Mother was about honesty and trust and all that stuff Lily and Marshall are usually really good at, but are not currently thriving.
You see, Robin was getting increasingly fed up with Barney lying to her for the sake of getting a reaction out of her. One of the last straws was when he pretended to call off the wedding just so he could turn her frown upside down with a suitcase of puppies. (Aww, puppies.) Sweet as the gestures were intended to be, it was just too much. So she said no more surprises.
Barney took this to mean that Robin was secretly planning a huge surprise for him — a laser tag-themed rehearsal dinner. So he spent the entire episode begging his bride to give up the act while handcuffed in a security guard’s office. (He had been apprehended by the guard while searching for the truth about Robin’s plan…or so he claimed.) I have to admit, because the Barney Thinks Robin is Lying gag went on so long, I thought the end would reveal Barney’s suspicions to be true. Instead, we found out it was Barney who had yet another surprise up his sleeve.
Via flashback, we were shown that Robin had initially wanted her wedding to take place in Canada. But, as you might guess, the gang quickly squashed that idea. (“Canada? Are you registered at Tim Horton’s?” — Ted) But this stayed in Barney’s mind, I assume, because when it came time to plan their rehearsal dinner, he decided to bring Canada to her.
