Was she even IN the show?  Spin-offs usually include some character (regular or recurring).  I don't recognize her from anywhere and you'd think the article might have mentioned how she fits into the existing story line.  This sounds more like a "same universe" kind of show like "The Finder" was (the character appeared in "Bones" solely to introduce it for its pilot)

I hope Saget plays the future woman in voice over.

Nicely done, subby the second half of that sentence directly mirrored my thoughts when reading the first half.

I remember the day when spinoffs used to be special and would only occasionally root like Rhoda Dendron.

Spinoffs often bomb, but I'll give it a shot.  HIMYM is at least consistently entertaining, even if it's fallen off slightly in the last couple seasons.

With the spinoff rumors I was hoping it would star Cristin Milioti, the girl playing 'the mother', as she's pretty delightful, but I can see how that would be problematic to start again in the past and do the parallel story from a writing perspective.
