I admit it: I haven't been totally in love with this season of How I Met Your Mother. Don't get me wrong, I still adore the show but none of the recent episodes have really made me cry tears of laughter the way that some have in past seasons. I was going to blame it on the fact that Barney and Robin are a couple and acting weird (she should have been so into the strip club). Or perhaps the fact that now that Ted is single and just teaching, he's really even more boring than usual. Or most likely a combination of all of them. I've just felt basically disenchanted with the series... until last night, when the show totally won me back.
While doing a little bit of research for a How I Met Your Mother article, I stumbled across a tidbit of news about the show I missed when it first popped up -- there will be a book of the Bro Code. Yes, the set of bylaws that Barney, Ted, Marshall and bros everywhere adhere to will finally be available in one handy tome, comprising all 86-plus tenets -- which will be a great relief to fans who have been compiling their own (incomplete) lists on the Internet, as well as guys who are unsure whether it's okay to hook up with their friends' moms. (According to Article 89, it is not.)
Kids… meet your new mother. With the unexpected announcement that indie darling Greta Gerwig would be anchoring the upcoming How I Met Your Mother spin-off How I Met Your Dad, HIMYM/HIMYD creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas have pulled off their biggest casting coup since the Britney Spears cameo a few seasons back. Even more interestingly, the Frances Ha co-writer and star will be a writer/producer on the new series as well, suggesting that she'll at least have some say in the way the series unfolds. With that in mind, here are the five things we'd like to see Gerwig incorporate into her first network television venture.
While most of us (of legal drinking age) will gravitate towards our local Irish pubs this weekend to celebrate St. Patrick's Day, we'd really prefer to be imbibing cocktails at some of our favorite television watering holes. While years ago, we may have wanted to go to the Boston bar where everybody knows your name, or would've liked to take in some sweet drinks while cruising with Isaac, there are plenty of newer fictional establishments that are calling out to us these days. Man, there are a lot of lushes on TV.
10…9…8…7…6…5…4…3…2…rerun! In anticipation for New Year's Eve festivities you can either watch yet another Ryan Seacrest-hosted event with uncomfortable D-list celebrity banter, freezing strangers wishing a "Happy New Year" to other strangers, and pre-recorded performances from pop stars, or you can watch something good. (That said, if this year the clock strikes midnight and the zombie apocalypse unfolds on live television and you're watching one of these old TV episodes instead, we sincerely apologize for making you miss it.)
Watch the kiss that revolutionized television. Or, New Girl, at least.
Vanderpump Rule #215: When Dancing with the Stars calls, you say yes.
It's Do No Harm, not Do Not Watch.
I believe this is what they call "the light at the end of the tunnel."
It's all Fox news (no, not the network) all the time.
