Last night, How I Met Your Mother worked even more of it's Daddy-issues out when John Lithgow turns up as Barney's long-lost father. After 30+ years of expectations, Barney was less-than-thrilled to find out that his father's a boring Driver's Ed teacher.
It's pretty surreal watching this Russian version of HIMYM - the settings are similar and the Barney character is wearing a suit, but it's still so strange! In Soviet Russia, is Robin Sparkles still Canadian?
In tonight's very-appropriately titled episode—Legendaddy—Barney's father will show up at his door while the gang is inside trying to get the TV to work. Inside, see who Barney's father is (spoiler alert!)
In last night's installment of HIMYM, we learn that Barney actually has a heart, albeit during a cheesy scene in a hospital room in which the doctor tells him "Your heart literally skipped a beat!" Also: Robin dates a dog.
HIMYM gave us some big plot reveals in last night's episode. Without being too spoiler-ly, Marshall and Lily make some big life changes, Barney takes a stab at actual dating, and Ted's love life is about to change.
Last week, HIMYM broke the sitcom mold by killing of Marshall's Dad. This week, the crew heads to Minnesota to be there for Marshall at his father's funeral. Raise your hand if you found yourself teary-eyed during the episode...
What a conveniently timed little piece of PR this is: the cast of HIMYM talking about how much they love the show. It's got laughs and earnest talk and you just know CBS forced it in response to Monday's episode.
