How I Met Your Mother Season 9, Episode 20 “Daisy”
Directed by Pamela Fryman
Airs Monday nights at 8pm Et on CBS
Much like the entirety of How I Met Your Mother‘s final season, “Daisy” gets off to a slow start, and an unfortunate one; save for a few small bright spots, the Robin/Barney material is by far the weakest link of the season, relying on hackneyed jokes and a repetitive “these two people accept each other!” resolution in between broad jokes and lots of guest appearances. And right off the bat, “Daisy” goes hot and heavy on bride paranoia, with Robin’s mother making up a bunch of bullshit about her father, giving her the Big Pre-Wedding Cold Feet Scare – but then the episode takes a swift detour, and quickly becomes another hilarious, emotionally resonant entry in How I Met Your Mother »

It's a bit weird, typing this review up at the tail end of February. I feel like I should be wearing some brightly coloured party hat while finding at least three Christmas songs that I can actually stand (for the record, Ring Out Solstice Bells by Jethro Tull, Christmas Wrapping by The Waitresses and for some bizarre reason, Macca's festive cheese-fest Wonderful Christmastime are the only festive musical choices that don't make me want to take an axe to the pub stereo in December). Because Santa Joss is in town, delivering many a festive gift to all Buffy The Vampire Slayer fans with the episode, Amends.
Christmas episodes are always tricky things. There's the danger that they pile on the schmaltz and overdo the usual festive clichés. So, how does Amends stand up in this regard? To be honest, it's not a Buffy episode that I'd have readily picked as »
You only turn 29 once, so why not spend it reviewing an episode of How I Met Your Mother. Though you most likely don’t care it is my birthday, you most definitely should care about this latest episode entitled, “Daisy.” This is the episode where we find out where Lily (Alyson Hannigan) disappeared to the night when [&hellip

How I Met Your Mother Recap
Robin hadn’t expected her flying-phobic mother (Tracy Ullman) to make it to the wedding, but here she is. Her mother downplays the anxiety of the flight, but clips show her screaming, “We’re all gonna die” in the cabin. By the end of the flight, she’d clawed the man next to her, deployed the oxygen masks and found herself wrapped up in duct tape.
Sitting with Ted (Josh Radnor), Barney and Billy Zabka, Marshall (Jason Segel) admits that he’s feeling guilty about becoming a judge, wondering why Lily (Alyson Hannigan) changed her mind so quickly the other night. Zapka then offers some information: He saw Lily leave a minimart and head into a »
A skin care specialist said to have an A-list Hollywood clientele was arrested and charged with plotting to hire a hit man to kill a competitor. Facialist Dawn DaLuise is accused of solicitation of murder for allegedly trying to hire former NFL player Christopher Geile to kill Gabriel Suarez, according to a felony complaint filed Friday in L.A. Superior Court. DaLuise's clients reportedly have included Sarah Michelle Gellar, Alicia Silverstone, Michelle Trachtenberg and Alyson Hannigan, and she's been widely quoted in lifestyle publications. Suarez opened Smooth Cheeks next door to DaLuise's Skin Refinery on Santa Monica Boulevard about seven months ago, »

Alyson Hannigan pulled a Malin Akerman with a major haircut following the wrap of her show. In February, Akerman cut her long blonde hair into a chin-length style after her ABC comedy Trophy Wife finished filming. Now, Hannigan has done the same after the series wrap of How I Met Your Mother (sob). The redheaded actress, 39, showed off her new sleek bob on March 6 in Los Angeles. The shoulder-sweeping style looks modern and fresh, thanks to its face-framing layers. Hannigan and Akerman join a long list [...] »
Now that How I Met Your Mother just wrapped a few short days ago, it looks like Alyson Hannigan is enjoying her time off with (what else?) a fresh new haircut. The gorgeous redhead just stepped out with a brand new bob cut that's sleek and easy for spring, and we have to say, we're loving her new look. The cool 'do features a clean side part and slightly longer layers to frame her famous face, giving off a light and breezy update to her signature long locks. Over all, we're a fan of the sophisticated and elegant cut, which has been trending more now than ever. A polished bob is easy to style and looks great for any occasion. As if that wasn't evidence »

It’s been about a decade since the last episode of Angel, the Buffy the Vampire Slayer spin-off series about the vampire with a soul, aired. The final episode of season five, Not Fade Away, first appeared on Us television screens on 19 May 2004. That seems simultaneously like a very long time ago, and not very long ago at all, because time is vast and human brains are small and fallible, but it’s safe to say that in TV years, it’s a pretty long goddamned time.
The men and women behind the characters we used to spend one night a week with have gone on to other things – some bigger and better, others kind of rubbish – and unless you’re a particularly obsessive superfan, you »
[This episode review contains foreshadowing for future episodes, and the following review comments on this, though sometimes indirectly. Depending on your tolerance for spoilers, you may or may not wish to continue reading if you haven't finished watching the show.]
A big pot of gold delivered to your door. World peace. No more EastEnders on TV. Wishing may well be the most common pastime on Planet Earth, just inching ahead of backgammon and darts.
But as the old saying goes: “Be careful of what you wish for”. Cordelia's taking this advice on board a bit too late after new kid in town Anya (in reality, a scary, veiny demon) grants her wish of Buffy never coming to Sunnydale. This can only mean one thing: Alternate Dimension Time.
The Alternate Dimension is a common trope in fiction, in films such as It's A Wonderful Life. It's especially popular in science fiction. Doctor Who came up with Inferno, in which Jon Pertwee's Doctor found himself on a parallel Earth, just hours away from doomsday. Worse still, he had to battle with vicious, unkind counterparts of his friends, including Liz and the »
Exclusive: CBS‘ comedy pilot More Time With Family continues to add boldface names. Emmy-winning Sopranos alum Joe Pantoliano has joined the multi-camera project, toplined by Tom Papa and Alyson Hannigan, executive produced by Ben Affleck and Matt Damon, written/exec produced by Cathy Yuspa and Josh Goldsmith and directed by James Burrows. Based on the stand-up of Papa and the experiences of Damon, the 20th TV-produced project centers on Tom (Papa), a husband and father making a career change to spend more time with his family. Apa-repped Pantoliano plays Stan Rizzo, Tom’s brash, opinionated, old-school father. Related: 2014 CBS Pilots »

Have these past three weeks been enough to erase the image of Robin floating away into the early-morning sky like Ted’s former balloon companion? Very little has happened since then in the Farhampton time line, but for the cast (and possibly us fans), it’s been an intense February. Sweet Alyson Hannigan has shed a lot of tears — at the final table-read for the last episode and the on set of The Talk — while Neil Patrick Harris went whirling around New York preparing for his post-himym career, all of which has softened me up for the upcoming finale. Also, we learned that How I Met Your Dad will not necessarily be the lame reboot that we (or at least I) feared it would be, but rather a potentially formidable spin-off starring mumblecore maven Greta Gerwig, who also plans to produce and possibly write for the show.Himyd will no »

Just as you go through life, you'll find that things change. New job. New friends. New family. But from time to time, the past will poke its head round the door, whether it's the chance meeting of an old buddy or the inevitable school reunion – surely fully grown adults want to forget the days of detentions, bad dinners and corridors that smell like used espadrilles?
So far, Buffy The Vampire's Slayer's third season has introduced new faces and dynamics to the equation, such as a new Slayer in town and new baddies to face. And then a face from the past comes crashing into the Sunnydale welcome sign with all the grace of an elephant entering the London Marathon.
It's welcome back to Spike, last seen leaving town in Becoming. This time around, he's minus a certain loopy missus with a penchant for eyeless dolls and babbling nonsense. Drusilla's had »
Complaining about the time-marking nature of "How I Met Your Mother's" final season is, at this point, not a useful exercise.
It's exhausting to write about, it must be exhausting to read about, and it can surely be tough to watch, even in an episode such as Monday's (Feb. 24) "Rally," which had some pretty good comic bits and callbacks to earlier points in the series. This is the path the show chose to take this season, however, and considering filming on the series finale is just about done, it's not changing.
So let's all stipulate from here on out that we wish the Mother had been involved earlier and more often in this season, and by extension her future relationship with Ted explored a little more deeply. That while the jumping around in time that has occurred during Barney and Robin's wedding weekend has occasionally been fun (see below »
CBS' pilot "How I Met Your Dad" is following in the footsteps of "How I Met Your Mother" in a number of ways. The spiritual spinoff will tell a similar story in a similar time-hopping way -- and maybe, just maybe, it will have a member of the Whedonverse in its cast.
Former "Dollhouse" and "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" star Eliza Dushku told her 1.5 million Twitter followers Thursday (Feb. 20) that she's reading the pilot script for "How I Met Your Dad." Unsurprisingly, that bit of information caused a stir among her fans, so much so that Dushku followed up with a clarification.
"#Reading the pilot, folks. No announcement, just a first date -- perhaps this weekend," she writes. She adds, though, that she thinks the script, from "Himym" creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas and "Up All Night" creator Emily Spivey, "Is kinda #badass."

Revelations fades up with what sounds like the lead character from Family Guy sitting on some bagpipes. In fact, Dingoes Ate My Baby are concluding their latest set with what seems to be some sort of agonised ode to pain. Lead singer Devon is bypassing the normal laws of clear singing by turning the simple phrase “If I could walk out” into something that can only be translated as “If I could wuuuuunnnggghhh aaaggghhhlluunggghhhh.” It's amazing that Dingoes manage to get regular bookings, given that their lead singer keeps impersonating a constipated horse. Possibly, the Bronze regulars like their singers on the avant-garde side.
This groaning pain shout nicely sets the stage for Revelations, which contains more frenzied barking than a room containing The Littlest Hobo, Scooby-Doo and Shep from Blue Peter. Revelations is all about – well, revelations, if you hadn't guessed. Primarily, the big talking point is that the »

When Grimm’s makers were looking for their Nick Burkhardt, the job was to cast someone with all the requirements of a leading man, but none of the distracting ‘wasn’t he in that other thing?’ baggage. In David Giuntoli, whose TV appearances had until then largely been confined to one-off roles in comedies and dramas including Grey’s Anatomy and Ghost Whisperer (the latter produced, not at all coincidentally, by Grimm co-creator Jim Kouf), they found their guy.
Before How I Met Your Mother comes to an end, the cast is going Inside the Actors Studio.

An insider tells Us that the cast drew in a lot of excited attendees for the taping at the Michael Schimmel Center for the Arts at Pace University in NYC. Host Lipton, 87, started by discussing the actors' [...] »
How do you celebrate what is sure to be a legen—wait for it—dary How I Met Your Mother series finale? You give people fake spoilers! The How I Met Your Mother cast stopped by Late Show with David Letterman and presented the Top 10 surprises from the Himym series finale. Such "surprises" revealed by Cobie Smulders, Alyson Hannigan, Neil Patrick Harris, Jason Segel and Josh Radnor include… "The real father: Frank Sinatra."

Jimmy Fallon may have been twerking with Will Smith, but the Late Show with David Letterman had some special guests of its own last night, when all five main cast members of How I Met Your Mother stopped by to read the Top Ten List: “Top Ten Surprises In The Final Episode of How I Met Your Mother.”
