How I Met Your Father Premiere Twist: Here's How the Central Mystery Will Differ From How I Met Your Mother

How I Met Your Father is operating under a slightly different framework than its predecessor. Whereas the How I Met Your Mother pilot’s big twist was that Ted was on a date with “Aunt Robin,” the big reveal at the end of the sequel series’ premiere is that Sophie (played by Hilary Duff) has already met the father — and he’s probably one of four guys: Pemberton’s Pub owner Sid (Suraj Sharma), Uber driver Jesse (Chris Lowell), Tinder date Ian (Daniel Augustin) or Valentina’s new beau Charlie (Tom Ainsley). One more thing: In the year 2050, it appears that 58-year-old Sophie (played...

Unfortunately, I loved the How I Met Your Father premiere

Like many others, I was burned by the How I Met Your Mother finale. Why spend nine seasons building up to the introduction of a character only to unceremoniously kill her off? Why break up my favorite couple on the show just so insufferable Ted Mosby could shoot his shot decades later? As much as the sitcom captivated me with its tight-knit friend group dynamic, full of inside jokes that the characters shared with the audience, the finale took everything I liked about the show and managed to completely blow it up in the last 10 minutes.

Kids, This Is the Story of Why ‘How I Met Your Father’ Is Just Not Funny. At All.

Kids, this is the story of How I Met Your Mother. No, wait, that’s not right. Kids, this is the story of how How I Met Your Mother was one of the smartest sitcoms of the mid-2000s, then lost its way creatively, then killed off the Mother herself in order to preserve a pre-filmed ending the show had long since outgrown. Sorry, that’s not it either. Though can you blame me for dwelling on the whole murdered Mother thing? Kids, this is — I promise — the story of How I Met Your Father, a gender-flipped reinvention of HIMYM starring Hilary...

‘How I Met Your Father’ review: An unnecessary sequel

“How I Met Your Mother” is back, sort of, in a re-imagined sequel series called “How I Met Your Father.” Premiering Tuesday (Jan. 18) on Hulu, “How I Met Your Father” follows Sophie (Kim Cattrall), who, in the year 2050, decides to video-call her unseen offscreen son and tell him about how she met his father – using that as a jump-off point for the majority of the series.

Yep, That's Leighton Meester in 'How I Met Your Father' and It's More Than Just a Cameo

*SPOILERS FOR EPISODE 1 OF HOW I MET YOUR FATHER BELOW!*. If you found yourself doing a double-take or two during the series premiere of How I Met Your Father, you're not the only ones. For weeks I found myself asking, "Is that Leighton Meester?" when the Gossip Girl alumn randomly appeared as Meredith in my very early screenings of the series. To be honest, I figured it was just me still crying over the finale of Single Parents. But no, the powers that be behind How I Met Your Father are finally confirming her involvement in the series.

How I Met Your Father's Is Wasting Kim Cattrall's Talent - Let's Hope They Fix It

When "How I Met Your Mother" debuted in 2005, nobody involved could have possibly predicted the show would last nine seasons and become one of the most definitive sitcoms of the aughts. The show followed the adventures of Ted, Marshall, Lily, Barney, and Robin as they explore love, loss, and laughter in New York City as told through the dramatized flashbacks of the stories from Future Ted (a voiceover role by the late, great Bob Saget) as he tells his children the story of how he met their children's mother, and how all of the beloved adults in their life fit together as friends. We never actually see Bob Saget in the role, and he chose to be uncredited for 206 episodes before Josh Radnor (who played young Ted) took over as the narrator and storyteller in the show's two-part series finale).
