We’ll get to the important ’90s alt-rock blowjob news soon, but first, this:
[How I Met Your Mother co-creator Craig] Thomas won’t divulge whether the extra year altered plans on how HIMYM would introduce the mother: “That’s one of the few remaining tricks up our sleeves.” But he promises next year will look and feel much different from past seasons: “It’s going to be a new way to tell the story,” he says. “You’re never going to mistake a Season 9 episode from one of the previous eight.” (Via)
So, either Jason Segel in blackface for 22 episodes, or the mother might be revealed in the season eight finale. Either works. Anyway, let’s get to the good stuff: Robin Sparkles made her grand return in last night’s excellent all Canada everything episode, “P.S. I Love You,” with appearances from Alex Trebek, Alan Thicke, Jason Priestly, Luc Robitaille, Paul Shaffer, Geddy Lee, K.D. Lang, Steven Page (sorry), and Dave Thomas, as well as Dave Coulier, best known as the guy who Alanis Morissette went down on once in a movie theater, as documented in “You Oughta Know.” Also, he was Uncle Something-or-Other on a TV show. Mama’s Family, maybe?
The setup: on the show-within-a-show, Behind the Music-spoof Underneath the Tunes, various Canadians are asked about their romantic relationship with Sparkles, including Meta Coulier, who said:
Good on Coulier to acknowledge the rumor, though only Larry David knows for sure if he’s lying or not.
