"How I Met My Mother" is a solid edition of Hot in Cleveland that featured the show's rare attempts at serious moments and of course the same old goofy scenes that we know and love. Mark Derwin, The Secret's Life's horribly underused star, appeared as ex-convict Gary who tried to reconnect with Joy. There were some holes in that whole plot, but frankly it produced some funny moments which more often than not allow me to turn the other cheek on ridiculous sitcom storylines.
Joy meeting her son was a big moment for this show. Certainly not water cooler talk, but a fun storyline and a nice change of pace for the show. Good ep overall.
