Watching "Robin 101," I couldn't help but notice Angry Robin Scherbatsky's cinematic forebear:
Fritz Lang's The Testament of Dr. Mabuse features a similarly pale, unblinking, nostril-flared, visage. And like Angry Robin, he will make you cry. For the third time. That night.
How I Met Your Mother is off to a much stronger start than either of the past two seasons with a Jim-Pam influenced coupling (which is to say not very will-they-or-won't-they) at the center, fun narrative playfulness, and of course, Stripper Lily. The season ahead looks just as promising, with a musical number, Rachel Bilson--who was as vivacious in Chuck as she was in The OC--and best of all, the doppelgangers for Ted and Barney! Any bets as to the appearance of the next slap?
