Robin Sparkles

The origins of so much "HIMYM" myth, Robin Sparkles is the gift that keeps on giving. Robin's (Cobie Smulders) Canadian pop-star alter ego from the '90s -- still the '80s in Canada -- has already spawned two music videos ("Let's Go to the Mall" and "Sandcastles in the Sand") and brought in cameos from Alan Thicke, James Van Der Beek and Tiffany. The series does its best to pace its Sparkles references, but it's still not certain how many chapters there are to her story. --Mikey O'Connell, Zap2it
