Eric Braeden is Legen-Wait For It-Dary
I've been way harsh on Eric Braden recently (by "recently", I obviously mean "for the past decade and not unjustifiably harsh, because seriously!") and, wouldn't you know it, he turns around and does something guaranteed to get him back in my good graces, which I'm sure he was completely concerned about: he's guest starring on How I Met Your Mother as Robin's dad. Awesome. So, so awesome.
If you watch How I Met Your Mother, can we talk for a second about how brilliant it is? And how criminal it is that Jeremy Piven walked away with the Emmy Neil Patrick Harris so richly deserved? And how terrifying it is that this show is always on the verge of cancellation? It's like quality means nothing in this crazy world.
And if you're not watching How I Met Your Mother, you are foolish. I say that with love. Watching it will make your life better. It's wonderful! It managed to make JAMES VAN DER BEEK awesome. I know! We're talking really fantastic, here.
