How Awesome Can NPH Get?
I once called “How I Met Your Mother” the most frustrating show on TV because we were forced to root for Ted to get together with a woman we knew was not the mother of the title.
But now it’s frustrating for a completely different reason. And quite frankly, do any of us even care who the mother is?
On the heels of his legendary “Saturday Night Live” appearance, Neil Patrick Harris turned in a beautiful, heartbreaking performance on “Mother” as Barney actually tried to tell Robin (Cobie Smulders) that he loved her.
NPH was funny, sweet and romantic all at the same time. It makes you wonder just how awesome this guy can get.
It also makes you wonder what in the world Robin’s problem is, but I digress…
I know that shows have to keep couples apart for as long as possible to continue the story, but this is just so sad. The only upside is that it could provide more material for NPH’s Emmy reel.
Surely Jeremy Piven can’t beat him again…
“How I Met Your Mother” airs Mondays at 8:30 p.m. on CBS. You can watch full episodes at CBS.com…
