  1. Wait he was the voice of future Ted of HIMYM?? As a huge fan of the show how did I not know this? I’m now gonna do a rewatch of both FH and HIMYM.

    Another legend gone. I loved Full House growing up the reboot not so much.

  2. Here are the first words that Bod Saget narrating as future Ted on the first ever episode of how I met your mother and he said “Kids I’m going to tell an incredible story, the story of How I met your mother”.
