Here's a great piece of fan art that features the cast of How I Met Your Mother re-imagined as superheroes. The piece was created by conceptual illustrator Andy Park, who has worked on films such as Marvel's Thor: The Dark World, Iron Man 3 and The Avengers.
It features Alyson Hannigan's Lily Aldrin as Black Widow, Neil Patrick Harris' Barney Stinson as a Super laser tag player, Josh Radnor's Ted Mosby as Wolverine, Jason Segel's Marshall Eriksen as The Hulk, and Cobie Smulders' Robin Scherbatsky as Dazzler. »

As the year comes to a close, StumbleUpon decided to mine through their system and take a look at what was hot – and what was not – in 2013. Through their mobile and desktop exploration tool with more than 30 million users they've discerned that How I Met Your Mother, the CBS sitcom starring Josh Radnor, Jason Segel, Cobie Smulders, Alyson Hannigan & Neil Patrick Harris, is the most popular TV show of 2013.

Worth noting, however, is that Game of Thrones is the only TV show on the list to have also appeared on last year’s.

Conceptual artist, Andy Park, is well known for his Marvel Studios' concept art, but you have to see this new illustration that he has created. It features the cast of CBS' hit-comedy, How I Met Your Mother, dressed as superheroes. Alyson Hannigan's Lily Aldrin as Black Widow, Neil Patrick Harris' Barney Stinson as a Super laser tag player, Josh Radnor's Ted Mosby as Wolverine, Jason Segel's Marshall Eriksen as The Hulk, and Cobie Smulders' Robin Scherbatsky as Dazzler.

“There's never an easy way,” croons the Morcheeba lady at the start of Passion, and she's bang on the money. The Easy Way does not exist in the atlases of Buffy The Vampire Slayer or Angel. The path of true love is turned into thick, sludgy mud. The road of happiness is blocked by irritating, slow-motion roadworkers and their over-sized rotating red and green lollipops. Even the simple journey of life is more difficult to navigate than a broken compass.
If it's difficulty you're looking for, then Angelus is your chuckling representative. Having lost his soul, he's now taking his crusade to bring Buffy down town to Frowntown to warped new levels. Not only has he gone all creepy Stalker Boy on Buffy and her friends, he's also gone and called time on Giles' love life in the most brutal manner known to man.
And in addition, he kills Willow's pet fish. »

Airs Monday nights at 8pm Et on CBS
I’ve always had mixed feelings about ‘novelty’ episodes like “Bedtime Stories”: while they often give late-season episodes a nice injection of wit and energy, by construction they require a show to conform to different rules, both for creative types and audiences watching the final product. Novelty episodes can be quite enjoyable, but it’s a surface pleasure, one that comes from watching a show mold itself into something else – which, unfortunately, usually comes at the expense of character. “Bedtime Stories” is no different: it’s three-story Mother Goose structure works well in justifying the novelty of the episode, and there’s enough ingenuity in the rhyme construction – moving from the predictable iambic pentameter at times to dabble into other schemes, usually »

The ninth and final season of How I Met Your Mother has been all about stretching the sitcom limits: All 24 episodes take place over the course of one wedding weekend, and in another narrative twist, Monday night’s half-hour (8 p.m. Et on CBS) will play out entirely in rhyme.
Last week, EW was on the set of the show’s 200th episode — premiering at the end of January — and we had to ask a few questions about the clever concept. So far, we know that the episode (titled “Bedtime Stories”) has Marshall (Jason Segel) trying to get baby Marvin »

Everyone who's ever attempted a Throwback Thursday picture can stop now, because Charisma Carpenter has won the trend forever. To celebrate the weekly day of nostalgia, the former "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" star posted the cast's first ever trip to San Diego Comic-Con, and it is glorious.
Seth Green's hair! David Boreanaz's outfit! Joss Whedon's youthfulness! Seriously, words cannot do this picture justice. Alyson Hannigan's cargo jeans, Nicholas Brendon's open-toed sandals and Anthony Head's lack of greys all take us way, way back to a time that was oh so '90s.
This isn't the only throwback picture Carpenter posted today, but it certainly is the best. It's great to see the gang back together from this old photo, and a great reminder of how well those stars are doing now.
Here are the other pictures Carpenter posted:
It's official: CBS has ordered a pilot for "How I Met Your Dad," a spin-off of "How I Met Your Mother" from Emily Spivey ("Up All Night") and "Mother" co-creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas. The three will write the script for the pilot and executive produce. The show will center on an all-new female lead and her own group of friends, but contrary to previous reports, the lead character won't be introduced in the final episodes of "Mother." The project is coming from 20th Century Fox Television, which produces "Mother." "How I Met Your Mother," which stars Josh Radnor, Jason Segel, Cobie Smulders, Neil Patrick Harris and Alyson Hannigan, is in its ninth and final season. »
“On behalf of my gender – hey!”
Xander Harris may not be clued up about She-Mantises or Inca Mummy Girls, but when it comes to blatant sexism, he knows an insult when he hears it. With a new werewolf in town terrorising the neighbourhood, Buffy is quick to pounce upon Giles' description of its habits: “It acts on pure instinct – no conscience, uh, predatory and aggressive”. The Slayer simply writes this off as “your typical male.”
Werewolf stories are a strange breed in Buffy The Vampire Slayer. More often than not, they analyse the patterns of male behaviour. Some stories come off better than others – Wild At Heart, the highly dramatic tear machine, is saddled by an out-of-character premise, while the earlier Beauty And The Beasts is bogged down by awkward male stereotyping and crass soapboxing. Can't wait to watch that one again. Honest.
So let's look at Giles' above description in more detail. »
A flashback episode revealed even more surprises about the show’s mysterious, titular character.
Is it just us, or is the final season of How I Met Your Mother starting to feel a little like Lost? Not only does the whole thing span the course of a single weekend, but the Nov. 11 episode took place entirely in the past — and changed the way we’ll look at Barney (Neil Patrick Harris) and the “mother” (Cristin Milioti) forever. Seriously, holy retroactive plot-twist, Batman!
So, here’s the deal: Himym creator Carter Bays tweeted a half hour before the show aired on the east coast, explaining that the episode takes place between “Splitsville” and “The Stamp Tramp,” which are the sixth and seventh episodes of season eight, respectively. But even with that warning in mind, the episode was still a bit of a mind-screw.
The episode, titled “Platonish,” picked up while Robin »

After five decidedly hit-and-miss episodes and a week off the air, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has come back with “F.Z.Z.T.”, possibly the strongest and definitely the most emotionally engaging entry to the series so far, though reminders of the limitations of bringing the Marvel Cinematic Universe to the small screen are still never far away , as evidenced in this week’s (relatively few) action sequences.
The central mystery of the episode has Coulson and his team trying to puzzle out how a camp leader and firefighter ended up dead and floating six feet off the ground.
The detective work from the agents is fairly rote and it’s quickly discovered that the culprit is not a murderer targeting members of a fireman team who were in New York during the Chitauri invasion »

Hollywood Game Night is coming home for the holidays.
NBC’s summer game show series — which is a must-watch for any fan of the pop culture zeitgeist and actual legitimate celebrities (not the celestial enigmas on Dancing With the ”Stars”) — will air a special holiday episode on December 2 after a two-hour episode of The Voice. Nine more episodes will follow in 2014.
Among the celebrities competing? “We have Gavin DeGraw and Ray Romano and Rachel Bilson and Cheryl Hines and Andy Roddick and Brooklyn Decker—on different teams, of course,” host Jane Lynch tells EW. “We have some new games that are great, »

So that's the secret behind Sofía Vergara's hair. The 41-year-old Modern Family star (who just so happens to be TV's highest-paid actress) has been named the new Head & Shoulders spokesperson, E! News can exclusively confirm. How I Met Your Mother's Alyson Hannigan also reps the dandruff shampoo, as does Olympian Michael Phelps. "I am excited to be joining a new family. Head & Shoulders has been a part of my hair care regime and my family's since I was young," Sofía shared in an exclusive statement. "In fact we joke that eight out of nine Vergaras use it; and there are a lot of us." The actress and several of her real-life family members will »
More than a decade since Buffy the Vampire Slayer went off the air, the show's creator, Joss Whedon, and the red headed actress who played Buff's bestie Willow Rosenberg, Alyson Hannigan, posed together at the Make Equality Reality event in Beverly Hills,Calif. honoring Whedon's work to advance gender equality. The mother of two looked stunning in a little black leather cocktail dress with her red locks down. Hannigan, 39, gave birth to daughter Keeva in May 2012 and Satyana in March 2009. She's married to former Buffy [...] »
Birthdays. A celebration of the annual 'hanging another year on the line'. Balloons, cake and presents do the job when you're younger, while Grandpa/Grandma joke cards and booze do the job for the older ones. Buffy, on the other hand, is turning 17 in the bleakest fashion possible. Not only is she up against a giant blue joykiller called The Judge, she's about to find that her boyfriend isn't quite the man she thought he was.
Surprise/Innocence occurs at that mid-point segment of a Buffy season in which the rules change (think of the revelation of Adam or Travers firing Giles, for example). This two-parter is one of the biggest goalpost shifts in the series: the point in which Angel turns from the vampire with a soul to the evil Angelus. Up until now, we've been fed scraps of information about Angelus' fiendish ways: How he killed his family; how he psychologically tortured Drusilla. »
Interview Laura Akers Chris Hicks 4 Nov 2013 - 07:00
This interview contains spoilers for Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
Amber Benson has been up to a lot lately - writing books, acting, and directing - but when we sat down with her, we couldn’t help but ask about the first thing that endeared her to us: her part in the sweetest and most tragic relationship on Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
The Tara-Willow relationship, especially the way that the two characters eventually got together was one of the greatest pieces of television, especially Lgbtq television. Part of the reason was that it was so natural. Unlike other TV shows, Willow’s coming out was not publicised. Quite the opposite: you guys had us believing that Tara was loving in vain and that Willow »
Amongst other things (like the fact that they were generally just great shows, for example), the Buffyverse television shows – Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel – were renowned for their attractive casts.
There were cast members to appeal to all demographics, but there was a particular emphasis on beautiful women; Sarah Michelle Gellar as the titular Buffy Summers, Eliza Dushku as rogue slayer Faith Lehane, Alyson Hannigan as the lesbian witch Willow Rosenberg, Amy Acker as science geek Fred Burkle, Charisma Carpenter as cheerleader turned team Angel member Cordelia Chase and Emma Caulfield as ex-demon Anya Jenkins to name but a few.
But the main cast members weren’t the only attractive females on the show – not by a long shot.
With that in mind, »

Some women can be real witches. They not only have that “sly, come hither stare,” but they can work an actual magic spell. In honor of Halloween, we’re counting down our 20 favorite sorceresses, witches, casters and enchantresses from film and television.
Emma Watson‘s Hermione Granger might be the most famous witch in the world–and not just because she’s BFFs with the “Boy Who Lived.” Meanwhile, Alyson Hannigan brought both light and dark magic to Sunnydale when she played Willow on Buffy The Vampire Slayer. While some other sorceresses, like Eva Green‘s Angelique Bouchard, aren’t just witches; they’re actual vamps.
Some of the witches on our list are “good witches,” and others are “bad.” The one thing they all have in common, though, is that we’re completely and utterly under their spell.
