Following the controversy, series creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas have reached out to apologize for the offensive nature of the episode.

Kids, remember when spinoffs seemed to all of a sudden become the go-to extension plan for aging TV series, and in the same year TV managed to churn out 'Breaking Bad’ spinoff ‘Better Call Saul,’ ‘The Walking Dead’ companion series, and ‘The Vampire...

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?

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?

'This is 40' Review

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?
