Barney Stinson’s Avalanche of Awesome

Unshaven in November.

Last night's episode of How I Met Your Mother featured a treasure trove of Easter eggs and character backstories for the show's hard-core fans. From Barney Stinson's Video Resume to the revelation that Ted used to be an underground D.J. in college called Dr. X, we're beginning to think that HIMYM creators Craig Thomas and Carter Bays are the sitcom equivalents to J.J. Abrams (who, BTW, also put a Cloverfield-related Easter egg into the Star Trek trailer that aired during the Super Bowl). [Videogum]
