As if 'How I Met Your Mother' hadn't been under enough criticism in its ninth and final season, the most recent installment "Slapsgiving 3: Slappointment in Slapmarra" seemed to highlight several surprisingly racist Asian stereotypes that have appropriately caused an uproar. Following the controversy, series creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas have reached out to apologize for the offensive nature of the episode.
'How I Met Your Mother' didn't close out 2013 with quite the same midseason oomph as the previous year, but will the long-awaited "Slapsgiving 3: Slappointment in Slapmarra" pick things up enough in time for 'HIMYM''s March series finale? Preview the final slaps in the first photos and footage of 'How I Met Your Mother''s 2014 premiere!
It's been no secret that 'How I Met Your Mother''s final season has dragged a bit in the early episodes by spending so much time with the wedding weekend in Farhampton, but could Monday's "No Questions Asked" right the course? We last left Marshall in something of a pickle, so what happens when Barney comes to the rescue in the latest clips and photos?
For as much as 'How I Met Your Mother' gives away the biggest spoilers about its ninth and final season in the title alone, we're not certain what to make of the gang's ninth year, which supposedly takes place entirely over a wedding weekend. It can't prove as simple as walking down the aisle and meeting a lovely lady, so who suffers the biggest setback in 'How I Met Your Mother's ninth season premiere?
More and more each year, the hardcore San Diego Comic-Con loyalists bemoan the presence of TV and movies that have little to do with comics or comic culture at large, but in this case, we don't mind one bit. 'How I Met Your Mother' will make its first (and only) appearance as a panel at Comic-Con 2013, but which stars will be in attendance, and what can we see from the final season?
Long in development, Jason Segel and director Jake Kasdan have been trying to get the film 'Sex Tape' going for over a year. When we last reported the duo were looking to reunite with their 'Bad Teacher' star Cameron Diaz, and now -- a year later -- it looks like that's finally going to happen.
Beyond their acting abilities, the cast of 'How I Met Your Mother' have many outside talents that don't often get the chance to be featured on the acclaimed CBS series, talents we're all-too-happy to spotlight. Plenty of buzz surrounds 2012's final 'How I Met Your Mother' episodes "The Final Page, Part 1" and "The Final Page, Part 2" not only for 'Buffy' alum Seth Green's appearance, but also for a surprise proposal, so what can we learn from the latest clip?
The transition from ‘The 40-Year-Old Virgin’ to ‘This is 40’ has been an interesting one for Judd Apatow. After doing some really personal work on television’s ‘Freaks and Geeks’ -- and getting almost immediately cancelled when no one watched it -- he became a major name in cinematic comedy with the big, broad ‘Virgin,’ a film about a man trying to end decades of sexual starvation. He followed that up with ‘Knocked Up,’ about a young stoner who learns the perils of impregnating Katherine Heigl -- whose sister was played by Leslie Mann, Apatow’s real-life wife, and whose nieces were played by Maude and Iris Apatow, Apatow and Mann’s real-life daughters. While most of the movie was about Seth Rogen and Heigl’s wacky babywaiting shenanigans, there was that small percentage of observational family life comedy with Mann, the junior Apatows, and Paul Rudd, ostensibly playing Judd. It was some of the best stuff in the film, and it pointed the way forward.
Many classic but cancelled series hold the distinction of featuring a number of A-list stars before making their big breaks, but few hold such a distinguished roster as Judd Apatow's cancelled 2000 NBC series 'Freaks and Geeks.' The retro series featured the likes of James Franco, Seth Rogen, Jason Segel, Linda Cardellini, Lizzy Caplan, Busy Philipps, Martin Starr and even Thomas Wilson (Biff of 'Back to the Future'), despite only running 18 episodes. Twelve years later, are you ready to see the entire cast reunite?
