'How I Met Your Mother' recap: Ted's 'Pretty Little' hook-up leads to a pretty big reveal

[Note: This is a recap, folks. So, as the word suggests, we'll be talking about the episode. Don't want to ruin the fun for yourself? Join our convo only after watching the latest episode of How I Met Your Mother.]

How I Met Your Mother spent the first half of its current season keeping the news of Barney and Robin’s impending engagement a secret from viewers. But after the cat was let out of the bag in the winter finale, I can’t help but feel like the truth has set them free.  READ FULL STORY

'Supernatural' recap: Sammy's Choice

Supernatural is back! And on this week’s episode, Sam and Dean had to stop being annoyed with each other for 20 seconds in order to help Castiel rescue an angel.

Seem simple? It kinda was — especially by Supernatural standards. In fact, I found this week’s episode to be much less about their mission and more about deeper personal plots. In Sam’s case, he had to choose between a life with Amelia and a life of hunting.

As we know, Dean has been in this position before, and this is hardly the first time a Winchester has done the hokey pokey with “normal life.” Both have tried and — so far — failed to succeed in having a regular life. In the past, Sam has always been better at moving on beyond hunting, but this week proved that it will always be hard for Sam to let Dean shoulder the responsibility alone. READ FULL STORY

'How I Met Your Mother' recap: Holy confetti!

In the episode, Ted was having a tough time dealing with Robin and Barney’s engagement — even though we saw him “let her go” for the hundredth time back in December. But what can I say? This is Ted. Ted is always okay with everything until he realizes he’s not and then it eats him up inside. Oh, Ted.

Anyway, Ted masked all his pain by being overly eager to plan Robin’s wedding, which, in HIMYM land, will take place on May 25, 2013. He’d picked her colors (cream and lilac), a location (“that little church on Long Island where Victoria almost got married”), and had a binder of cake choices. Lily was one angry would-have-been-wedding-planner, and her inner beast really came out when she discovered that Ted wanted them to get a DJ instead of a band. (I was with Ted on that one.) Needless to say, the battle got heated. But later, Lily discovered that Ted’s issues with the wedding went far beyond musical choices. READ FULL STORY

'NCIS' recap: Devastating developments

Spoiler Alert: If you haven’t seen tonight’s episode of NCIS, we recommend that you do not continue reading as this post could spoil your viewing experience. You’ve been warned!

When NCIS wants to deliver a punch, they really go straight for the gut, don’t they?

We always knew that tonight’s episode — which saw the return of Ziva’s father Eli (Michael Nouri) — would be an emotionally-charged one. (His relationship with his daughter is nothing if not flawed.) But I don’t think anyone could have predicted that he’d be dead by the end of the hour. READ FULL STORY

'Doctor Who' Christmas special recap: 'Bow ties are cool'

This year’s Doctor Who Christmas special fell perfectly in line with the episodes we’ve seen so far this season: clever, funny, heart-tugging, topped with sadness, and served with a side of mystery. And, impressively, it did all the aforementioned while also introducing the Doctor’s new companion.

So how’d they do it? With a tale called “The Snowmen,” which was as twisty as it was exciting.

In this story, we met a man named Dr. Simeon who was using a giant snow globe called The Great Intelligence to manipulate snow in hopes of wiping out all the humans of the world and replacing them with ice creatures. The bigger issue here, though, wasn’t stopping the nefarious act — it was getting the Doctor to participate in the world-saving. READ FULL STORY

'How I Met Your Mother' recap: The Robin

SPOILER ALERT: If you haven’t seen tonight’s How I Met Your Mother, do not continue reading. As the word “recap” implies, we’ll be talking about the episode — and you don’t want this one spoiled for you. Trust us.

'Gossip Girl' series finale: Talk about it here! (Updated)

EARLIER: Gossip Girl has been a long, lovely, lascivious road — and it all comes to an end tonight.

After six seasons, the series that taught us about fashion, friends, and fake smiles will retire like an out-of-season handbag, but I beg you not to ruin your mascara with tears. (Also, tears are for the weak.) Instead, let us celebrate the morally reprehensible journey we’ve just taken and toast our frenemies from the Upper East Side.

I invite you to use this space to discuss the show’s series finale. At some point this evening — after your friendly Gossip recapper rediscovers the will to live in a world without the likes of Blair, Chuck, Serena, Dan…I guess Nate, too — this post will be updated to include a full recap of the action.

UPDATE: Recap below. -Xoxo READ FULL STORY

'Gossip Girl' recap: Beginning of the end

SPOILER ALERT: If you haven’t watched tonight’s episode of Gossip Girl you missed out on a wild soapy ride — complete with a death! So if you don’t want to be spoiled, don’t read on.

'Scandal' shooter revealed. Did you see that coming?!

WARNING: Do not read on if you haven’t watched this week’s episode of Scandal. MAJOR, MAJOR spoilers ahead.

This week’s Scandal was an intense hour that delivered an answer to the question that’s been plaguing fans of the show for the past seven days: Who shot the President?

The answer was shocking to say the least….


'Supernatural' recap: Cartoons and confessions

Last night’s Supernatural was, in one word, bizarre. In two words? Bizarre and fantastic.

The episode centered around Sam, Dean and new hunter Cas looking into a series of strange deaths in which the victims’ deaths were seemingly ripped right out of a classic cartoon — a man’s heart exploded out of his chest, someone was killed by an anvil, etc. But, surprisingly, as far as cases go, this one didn’t have too many twists and turns.

The trio was fairly quick to zero in on their father’s former friend Fred Jones, an elderly psychokinetic who was now catatonic and living in a retirement home. They realized that the man was messing with reality and creating a “bubble of weird” that would create these strange scenarios around him. (Note that not all of the strange happenings were deadly. See: exploding cake.) READ FULL STORY
