Pick of the Week: The Return of an 80s Teen Pop Star
So, of course, the logical choice this week would be the return of “Lost.”
But when this week also brings us the return of a cheesy fictional 80s pop star, how could I resist?
My Pick of the Week is “How I Met Your Mother.”
Fans of the show know that the “Mother” gang discovered that anchorwoman Robin was a Canadian teen pop star named Robin Sparkles when they found the video to her hit, “Let’s Go to the Mall” on the Internet. Now, the gang has discovered the B-side of that single, a ballad titled “Sandcastles in the Sand.”
The video features cameos by James van der Beek and Robin’s real-life counterpart, Tiffany. And it's a classic.
To get a sneak preview, go to the Robin Sparkles MySpace page. The entire video will be available after the episode airs.
“How I Met Your Mother” airs Monday, April 21st at 8:30 p.m. on CBS…
And by the way, “Lost” returns Thursday, April 24th at the new time of 10 p.m. on ABC…
