How I Met Your Mother - Episode 9.11 - Bedtime Stories - Cast and EPs preview the episode

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 to sleep with some very personal nursery rhymes.

“The structure of the flashbacks are that Marshall is recounting crazy things that happened to each one of us,” Neil Patrick Harris told EW on set, adding that two of the three acts involve Barney and his fiancée Robin (Cobie Smulders). “There’s a great adventure that Robin tells about this crazy night where she had superhuman powers, and then Barney recounts this dream tale of how he is the ultimate player in New York City.”

The third act revolves around Josh Radnor’s Ted, and the outside-the-box storytelling technique thrilled the actor. “I just thought that was such an imaginative episode,” he said. “That doesn’t take place [over the wedding weekend]. There’s a bunch of flashbacks. … It’s a great episode. Super weird. Never been done before in television.”
