This 28-disc DVD set comes with all nine seasons of the CBS television sitcom How I Met Your Mother, which was narrated by Bob Saget, and starred Neil Patrick Harris, Josh Radnor, Jason Segel, Alyson Hannigan, and Cobie Smulders.
The famous Canadian eatery Tim Hortons played a big role in last night’s episode of How I Met Your Mother, where Barney goes to Canada to talk to Robin’s past boyfriends to find out who she was obsessed with in her past. Each ex he talks with seems more fixated on the free Tim Hortons donuts Barney is offering than with reminiscing about Robin. Eventually, Barney gets his hands on an installment of Underneath The Tunes — Canada’s supposed answer to VH1’s Behind The Music — that exposes a dark period from Robin’s years as the Canadian teen musical sensation Robin Sparkles.
In the Underneath The Tunes segment, several famous Canadians are interviewed regarding Robin’s historic transition in the 1990s from happy go lucky teeny bopper Robin Sparkles to scorned stalker goth-grunge chick Robin Daggers. Rush’s Geddy Lee, K.D. Lang, Paul Shaffer, and Jeopardy host Alex Trebek all recall which Tim Hortons they were in and which donut they were eating when Robin made her outrageous public shift and “lost it.”
90210 alum Jason Priestley said he was at a Tim Hortons in Squamish, British Columbia, where he crammed a Timbit into a strawberry vanilla and invented “The Priestley.” The fast-food chain was so excited to be featured in the episode that they were inspired today to actually create “The Priestley”!
It was only just a matter of time before Rush showed up on How I Met Your Mother.
Rush frontman Geddy Lee will reportedly appear on the February 4th episode of the CBS sitcom, which features a character, Robin Scherbatsky, who’s a Canadian living in New York City. (Robin is played by Canadian actress Cobie Smulders, who starred as S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Maria Hill in Marvel’s summer blockbuster, The Avengers). The other main characters on the show frequently tease Robin about her Canadian ways – her love of hockey as well as her teenage past as a famous Canadian popstar who went by the name Robin Sparkles (a cross between Tiffany and a teenage Alanis Morrisette).
Since the show first aired in 2005, there’s been plenty of famous guest stars, such as Britney Spears, Katy Perry, and Jennifer Lopez. For the upcoming episode, which will see the return of Robin Sparkles, there will be several Canadian guest stars, like Alan Thicke, Jason Priestley, Alex Trebek, and the aforementioned Geddy Lee. See a list of all the guest stars for this episode in the video here below.
