MASSIVE SPOILERS AFTER THE BREAK
A familiar face from the show’s past is returning to ‘How I Met Your Mother’ and it may mean big things …
Happy Slapsgiving! This isn’t a four-hour deal, but it’s unclear how long they will stay at this price. 80% off the $40.00 listing. Legendwaitforitdary.

well, they fucked up this continuity.
True fact: They shot the kids’ part of the series finale back in season 2 to preserve how they looked.
Admittedly this joke is over two years old (and in an episode which borrowed most of the format/funny from that same original source, “Three Days of Snow”), but you can’t go wrong with HIMYM/Internet episode integration. It’s a bar called Puzzles. Why is it called Puzzles? That’s the puzzle.
Also please note that the listed menu already reflects the first two upticks in beverage pricing.
The song was a highlight, as was Sandy showing up in the bathtub. Otherwise, this episode was over extended with four story-lines that all deserved their own episode.
Via text message from the BFF: “YOU CAN PLAY ‘LET’S GO TO THE MALL’ IN JUST DANCE 3!!!”
I am truly in complete awe of the universe sometimes. Yes, this is real.
UC Men’s Octet - “Nothing Suits Me Like A Suit” from How I Met Your Mother
Chris Elliot and Bill Fagerbakke guest star in “Noretta” when Marshall and Lily realize they remind each other of their parents.
Taking place at Punchy’s wedding. Apologies for the mild spoilers.
Most viewers are aware that HIMYM is great at calling back jokes from years past. Take for example last night’s “We should buy a bar” diversion or the previous week’s return of the Cockamouse. While these gags are delightful nods to the loyal audience member, the show is operating on a deeper level with its continuity. Not just writing in joke call backs but thematic call backs as well.
Lilly’s scheme to steal the Arcadian’s signature lion’s head may have seemed surprising to the gang but upon closer investigation it shouldn’t have been. It was merely a variation on Ted stealing the blue french horn for Robin. Whether Lilly was consciously inspired by the happenings of the series pilot or not the act of stealing the Arcadian’s signature adornment was a genius parallel drawn by the writers. Where the blue french horn stood for Ted’s love for Robin, taking the lion’s head was out of love for himself (read: his career aspirations) and Barney. Two major story developments this season.
And then the stinger that Barney kept the head and put it up in his bedroom is icing on the metaphorical cake.
This is what it must feel like when British people watch American remakes.
