I knew that tonight’s episode of How I Met Your Mother would be a sad (but sweet) one when I found out it centered around Marshall going to visit his father’s grave. But the episode did more than just make me sob (which, I had expected fully). It also gave hope to our gang — who have all experienced their challenges this year — that the New Year will be a great one. And I’d be lying if I said I didn’t benefit from that message a little bit, too. [Spoilers from here on out! Beware!] READ FULL STORY »

It’s not a cool thing to admit. At all. But in the spirit of PopWatch’s sacred Confessionals, I have to admit: I’ve spent a lot of time watching fan videos on YouTube lately.
This is far from a recent development. I’ve watched many ‘shipper (relationship + supporter = ‘shipper) videos in the past, but I just had a few days off recently that were spent largely following a trail of videos after my friend sent me a great one about How I Met Your Mother‘s Barney and Robin.
Once upon a time, I had an entire playlist dedicated to fan videos, but after that account was closed, I lost my comprehensive — and, frankly, dated — selections and never had the time to start it up again. I started a new one this past weekend after coming across several I loved.
That’s not meant to sound like I have that many favorites. In fact, there’s a lot of crap out there. And I don’t feel bad saying that. I saw some Booth and Bones videos set to Enrique Iglesias’s “Hero” that I refuse to admit actually exist, and am totally amazed at how many people still think “Kiss Me” is still the most romantic song ever made. But there is small, select collection with remarkably fine editing work — both in terms of clip and music selection. Bonus points go to those who find a way to incorporate dialogue or moments. And the supreme fan-vid editors can make you cry. Yes, actual waterworks.
That didn’t happen but once during my recent excursion into the world of fan videos, and yes, I felt like a corny idiot. Then I pressed “replay.”
Judge me if you will; I won’t blame you. But if you’re so inclined, share or talk about some of your favorites below. Here are a few of mine: READ FULL STORY »
It took How I Met Your Mother roughly two seconds to earn an exclamation of shock from me last night during the midseason finale. How, exactly? Read on [...if you've watched last night's episode. If not, I highly recommend not clicking below, friends. It spoils the whole thing!] READ FULL STORY »
If you’re a fan of How I Met Your Mother, the past two weeks have likely felt like an eternity. We’ve spent 14 days waiting to find out the result of the series’ looming baby dilemma: Will Lily actually cave and let Marshall name their unborn child Hurricane? Okay, so that’s not exactly the question that’s still hanging heavy on everyone’s head, but she should really reconsider. (Team Hurricane Aldrin-Eriksen!)
No, the real drama (drama being the operative word here) that’s had everybody talking came from the major, whiplash-causing reveal that Robin is pregnant. And it could be Barney’s. Or it could be Kevin’s. And this whole thing is causing more anxiety than watching a Slap Bet countdown clock determine your fate. READ FULL STORY »
Should I duck now? I should probably duck (tie) now. I’m sure you’re all preparing to hurl plenty of slaps my way. But still, PopWatchers, I can’t deny these horrible feelings I’m feeling. After seven seasons of wishing, hoping, and praying that Barney and Robin would get together once and for all on How I Met Your Mother, I’ve had to admit to myself: Robin just simply does not belong with Barney.
I feel this not only as someone who has handed out (and received) plenty of romantic advice in my life, but also as a TV watcher. Admit it: Part of you cheered when the couple broke up after they experimented as a couple in season 5. As boyfriend and girlfriend, Barney and Robin simply didn’t spark on screen. READ FULL STORY »
