"Enlisted" just got a minor promotion, from a Friday at 9:30 timeslot to Fridays at 9.

Season finale review: 'Sleepy Hollow' - 'The Indispensible Man'/'Bad Blood'

Talkback: 'How I Met Your Mother' - 'Unpause'

Marshall and Lily resume their fight, and a drunken Barney reveals all

On one end of things, tonight's "How I Met Your Mother" was a clearinghouse for unanswered questions about Barney, and Robin, and about Ted and the Mother's future children, as well as an opportunity for random stealth quoting of "Knuffle Bunny" when Barney went past Jabba the Hutt drunk. On the other end, it dealt with the current crisis in Marshall and Lily's marriage by revisiting their biggest schism of the whole series.

What did everybody think of it? Were you amused by all the Barney revelations? Did you enjoy the 2017 scenes? Do you think the show is being fair about the issues, past and present, in the Eriksen marriage? And how 'bout those names?

Have at it.

Richard Madden from 'Game of Thrones' heads to the Yukon to seek his fortune

"Klondike," Discovery's first scripted miniseries, traffics in a lot of cliches and hoaky dialogue and takes a few strange detours in dramatizing the Yukon gold rush of the late 19th Century. But it also nails by far the most important part of the story: the unforgiving frozen terrain that made this particular gold rush as much a battle for survival as a hunt for fortune.

After a two-year absence, there's more strain on the adventures of Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman

It isn't always easy being the smartest guy in the room. There's a lot of pressure that comes with celebrated genius, and if you can't demonstrate it each and every time out, people can start to look for a smarter person to take your place.

Nor is it all that easy to write the adventures of the smartest guy in the room — particularly if, as Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss have done with "Sherlock," you insist on only making three 90-minute episodes a season. These modern-day adventures of Holmes (Benedict Cumberbatch) and Dr. Watson (Martin Freeman) are beloved, but the series doesn't have the leeway a more traditionally-structured series — like, say, CBS' own modern-day Sherlock series "Elementary," which does 22 episodes a season — get. The scarcity of "Sherlock" makes every episode an event, which is a lot to live up to. Yet for the most part (the second episodes tend to be less impressive than the first and third), Moffat and Gatiss pulled it off through the first two seasons. Their take on these familiar characters and mysteries have been exactly as smart as their dark and mysterious hero, and they've become a sensation in the UK.

ABC announces 'Toy Story That Time Forgot' Christmas special

Woody, Buzz, Trixie and the gang will deal with aggressive action figures

One of the very best things ABC aired last fall was the "Toy Story" Halloween special, "Toy Story OF TERROR!," a half-hour adventure featuring Woody, Buzz, Jessie and the gang (plus a few new characters like Combat Carl) stuck in a motel on a dark and stormy night when strange things were happening to the toys. Though the toys probably exhausted their usefulness for full-length films with the amazing "Toy Story 3," they're sill incredibly valuable for shorter stories like that one, which dealt with Jessie's claustrophobia and turned Mr. Pricklepants into the "Toy Story" version of Abed from "Community."

"TERROR!" was so good, in fact, that I hoped it would just be the first of many holiday specials, and today ABC granted that wish, announcing the new Christmas special "Toy Story That Time Forgot," which will air this year during the holidays.
