'How I Met Your Mother' recap: Choosing sides

It’s 48 hours before the wedding and Barney and Robin are still going at it. No, not in the fun way. I mean in a bad way.

This week’s issue? Barney felt that Robin was making him choose between her and his family. To be fair, she was. But it was more complicated than that. READ FULL STORY

'How I Met Your Mother' recap: Closure?

Barney sort of took the words out of my mouth tonight on How I Met Your Mother.

As you probably recall, last week’s episode left off on what we thought was an impending confrontation between Barney and Ted, after Barney admitted that he saw Ted helping Robin find her locket at the park (which we saw last season). Ted immediately tried to deny that his gesture meant anything more than it appeared, and, to his surprise, Barney accepted his babbling defense. Or so it seemed. Spoilers ahead! READ FULL STORY

'HIMYM': Can you name all the ones who weren't The Mother? -- VIDEO

From Amanda to Zoey, Ted Mosby (Josh Radnor) had a parade of ladies come his way before we met The Mother (Cristin Milioti) at the end of season 8 of How I Met Your Mother. Let’s see … there was The Slutty Pumpkin (Katie Holmes). And Cindy (Rachel Bilson). And Stella (Sarah Chalke). And of course Robin (Cobie Smulders). And don’t forget Blah Blah (Abigail Spencer). Really, is there anyone Ted didn’t go out with in eight seasons of big guest stars and endless dates?

Check out the video below and see if you can name all the loves of Ted’s life before The Love of Ted’s Life.


'How I Met Your Mother' recap: Mandy Patinkin!

How I Met Your Mother went right for my compression sock-covered Achilles heel tonight with an episode that had a trifecta of awesome: Swords, scotch, and Princess Bride references.

Full details of the second (erm, sorta third) episode of the final season are as follows…

We picked up at 2 p.m., 52 hours to go before the Stinson-Scherbatsky union. Marshall was still en route to the location, stopping only to pay some dues (which I’ll get to momentarily). Robin and Barney, fearing the flame in their relationship would extinguish after marriage, were on a quest to have one more round of good sex before making it official, but it proved harder than anticipated (no pun intended!). And as all of that unfolded, Lily came across a list of things Ted hoped to do before moving to Chicago, and in running through it with him, guided Ted to an important lesson. (Did anyone else momentarily forget he was planning on moving?) READ FULL STORY

'How I Met Your Mother' recap: The Wildcard

We’re officially on the road to the end of How I Met Your Mother. And after Monday’s season premiere, I can say with more conviction than ever that I hope this is a journey that goes slower than a roadtrip with Lady Tedwina Slowsby. Because I’m not ready to say goodbye. Not yet.

Luckily, there’s an entire season ahead of us, and, as you might have guessed when the show announced that the season would take place in the 55 hours leading up to Robin and Barney’s wedding, we’ll be making lots of small stops along the way.

Spoilers ahead!

This Week's Cover: Haaave you met... the latest issue of EW with the cast of 'How I Met Your Mother'?


It’s the most legen — wait for it because you’ll never want it to put it down — dary issue of Entertainment Weekly as the cast of the CBS hit How I Met Your Mother graces the cover for the first time.

Last season ended with (horrible pun alert) the mother of all cliffhangers as viewers got their first glimpse of the woman Ted (Josh Radnor) will eventually marry. Still nameless, she’s played by 28-year-old Tony-nominee Cristin Milioti, who wowed audiences in the Broadway hit Once. READ FULL STORY

'An Education' becomes 'An Engagement': Couple re-creates famous movie posters for their wedding


Okay, this is genius. When engaged couple Joshua Watson and Rachel van der Merwe got down to posing for their engagement photos, they decided that just any ol’ awkward smiling picture wouldn’t do. Instead, they decided to re-create some of Hollywood’s most famous film/television posters. An Education? More like An Engagement. Did you enjoy Walk the Line? Well, Walk the Aisle looks even better. Inception? What about Reception?

Check out a couple of other examples below, and if you want to see more — like their version of How I Met Your Mother/How I Met Mrs. Watson or Don’t Miss Dinner, a riff on Little Miss Sunshine — just click here.

The 10 movies, TV shows, and brands that ruled Comic-Con on social media

The buzziest project at the four-day geekfest known as Comic-Con must have been something with elaborate costumes, breathtaking special effects, and an epic battle between good and evil… right?

Interestingly, not so much.

EW has partnered with General Sentiment to develop aggregate scores that record not just what’s trending on social media, but also what users are actually saying about those topics. And according to our analysis, the most talked-about thing on social media at the Con wasn’t superhero, sci-fi, or fantasy-related — it was CBS’s How I Met Your Mother, a sitcom entering its ninth and final season this fall.

Those who feel that TV has taken over the Comic-Con crown from movies in recent years have reason to feel validated in this data as well: four of the top five topics trending this year were TV shows (X-Men being the lone movie in that short list).

Check the list below to see which other TV shows, movies, and brands made the top 10 list.
