A Look at How I Met Your Mother Finale “The Magician’s Code”

  • Boomtron
In just a few short weeks we’ll all be sitting down to catch the Season 7 finale of How I Met Your Mother, “The Magician’s Code.” For the first time in Himym history, the finale will be an hour long, giving it enough time to properly deal with the birth of Lily and Marshall’s first child and the mysterious identity of Barney’s future wife, while throwing in something for Ted and Robin to do as well. I know it may seem odd to focus so much on Barney and his future, but it’s easy to forget that Ted’s future is directly tied to Barney’s since it is at his wedding that Ted meets the titular mother.

In the images for “The Magician’s Code,” which will air May 14th, you can see Lily at the hospital giving birth, with Ted and Robin by her side.

“No Pressure” How I Met Your Mother Promo Images

It’s a little bit of a ways away, but CBS would like us to have a look at what’s to come in the How I Met Your Mother episode titled “No Pressure,” airing February 20th. As has been the unofficial theme of Season 7, Himym brings up the past, specifically the Season 2 episode “Something Blue.” Long time fans should remember that as the episode we found out Ted and Robin broke up. If you were paying attention you’ll recall they had a conversation over where they thought they saw themselves in five years.

Well, for those keeping count at home, Season 2 was five years ago, so have Ted and Robin achieved their goals? Heck no. “No Pressure” sees Ted and Robin sit back down and talk about their lives yet again, only instead of breaking up, Ted seeks to get back together with Robin.

Any scoop about Callie and Arizona on Grey's Anatomy? — Marija

Adam: When the Chief offers $1 million to the department of the hospital that best demonstrates need, Callie's and Arizona's feelings for one another do not put a damper on their competitive spirit. "Callie turns into a very competitive person and actually starts running around trying to intimidate everyone," Sara Ramirez says. "[She] does this hilarious passive-aggressive thing that was fun to play. She's trying to psych everybody out."

I was surprised to see Terri on Glee. She's been Mia for so long ... yet she's a series regular (or at least

TV Review: ‘$#*! My Dad Says’ With William Shatner is Lost in Translation

Chicago – Laugh tracks are a dying breed. Think of classic, full-throttle laugh tracks from “The Jeffersons,” “The Beverly Hillbillies” and “Full House.” Today, though some major shows feature canned laughter, it has been much-pointed out that some of the best comedies on TV, by definition, are auspiciously missing a laugh track—think “Modern Family,” “The Office,” and “30 Rock,” to name a few.

Television Rating: 1.5/5.0

If the Internet naysayers are right, if a sitcom that uses a laugh track is the TV equivalent of the lady who protests too much, then that could be one explanation why CBS’s “$#*! My Dad Says” is not too funny. “$#*!” features some of the loudest canned laughter heard on TV in a while, and if the behind-the-scenes stories emerging from the production are any indication, the producers have inserted the boisterous inanimate laughter to drown out the bad buzz. Parent protests over an indecent title

Criminal Minds 6.01 “The Longest Night” Review

Photo: Ron P. Jaffe, CBS

Let me first say that I wasn’t overly impressed with the cliffhanger ending from last season. I think the show has done better with finales in the past, so I went into the season six premiere of Criminal Minds hoping that the conclusion would be stronger than the set up. Season five ended with with “Our Darkest Hour,” in which a longtime serial killer came back to Los Angeles during rolling blackouts which he used to his killer advantage. He was able to kidnap Ellie Spicer, daughter of Detective Matt Spicer, who just so happened to be the child involved in his first murder. He killed Spicer’s parents and allowed him to live and believed he was the reason Spicer became an officer. Tonight’s conclusion was entitled “The Longest Night” and it was written and directed by Cm veteran Edward Allen Bernero.

CBS Radically Shuffles Schedule, Moves ‘Survivor,’ ‘Big Bang Theory’

Chicago – CBS announced their fall schedule today. While fans of canceled “Accidentally on Purpose,” “Cold Case,” “Gary Unmarried,” “Numb3rs,” “The Ghost Whisperer,” and “The New Adventures of Old Christine” may disagree, the big TV news of the week is that several of the top network’s biggest shows are moving. “Survivor” jumps to Wednesday nights, “The Big Bang Theory” moves to Thursdays, “CSI: NY” slides to Fridays, and “CSI: Miami” now goes down on Sundays.

As far as on-the-bubble renewals are concerned, CBS saved “Rules of Engagement” and “Medium”. The rest of their renewals were pretty obvious choices as the network continues to air many of the biggest hits on TV including the #1 drama (“NCIS”), #1 comedy (“Two and a Half Men”), #1 new series (“Undercover Boss”), #1 news magazine (“60 Minutes”), #1 new drama (“NCIS: Los Angeles”), and #1 scripted series for the 18-49 and 25-54 demos (“The Big Bang Theory”).

Of course, all of those shows are returning,
