Frisky Rant: “How I Met Your Mother” Broke My Heart And I Have Way Too Many Feels About It

SPOILERS AHEAD! 

I used to think people who got really worked up over TV series finales were a little insane. What could possibly prompt someone to spend days crying real tears over characters that don’t even exist?

Circumstantial Hotness & The “Sex-retary” Effect

I’m a big fan of the show “How I Met Your Mother.” During a particularly memorable episode, the characters discuss the concept of “Circumstantial Hotness.” What is Circumstantial Hotness, you ask?

Josh Radnor Says Women Are Just More Alluring In New York

“New York and L.A. both have a lot of beautiful women, but in New York that beautiful woman will be reading a book. That, to me, is intensely sexy. If I was going to live in L.A., it would be on the condition that I not sell my soul in order to do that. I…

12 Reasons I Love Josh Radnor

Over the years, I have had many celebrity crushes. First, it was Leonardo DiCaprio, who seemed so unbelievably sweet sleeping in the janitor’s closet on “Growing Pains” before the Seavers took him in. Then, like many in the ’90s, I went through a serious Kurt Cobain phase. Next, came Tim Robbins, who I liked for…

Cobie Smulders On The Return Of Robin Sparkles

“It’s like a cartoon version of myself. In the ’80s … You should have seen the original version. We had to keep scaling it back because we couldn’t say a lot of things, but it was so much fun to toe that line of, “What can we get away with?” We do this bit where…

Cobie Smulders Smolders On The Cover Of Maxim

I don’t usually applaud Maxim magazine covers. But I adore Cobie Smulders, aka Robin from “How I Met Your Mother,” and have always wished she would start getting magazine covers, so I will take it.

So when I heard that Carrie Underwood would be the next celebrity to guest star on “How I Met Your Mother,” I had no illusions that she’d be an amazing actress. But I wasn’t quite prepared for how, uh, off her comedic timing is in this sample clip. In the episode, which air…

Which Of These Women Will Be The Mom On “How I Met Your Mother”?

How I Met Your Mother” has me a little confused. I’ve watched the show since the beginning and think it is one of the best sitcoms, evah. It’s laugh-out-loud funny and unpredictable (Who can forget Slapsgiving or Robin’s Canadian pop single, “Let’s Go To The Mall”?), and gets the late 20-something experience like no other…
