"And the sky is full of dreams, But you don't know how to fly" -TheKillers. I wish for a lot, and it makes me wonder. I am human but I'm not dancer. I got soul but I'm not a soldier. And the sky is full of dreams but you don't know how to fly. And all I do is miss you and the way we used to be. Oh well I don't mind if you don't mind Cause I don't shine If you don't shine ...<3 Sucks, but I am such a hopeless romantic. I fall in love with love. But I’m not crazy I’m just a believer….. <3
Let me try to make my thoughts coherent on this because I’m still in the internally-screaming-don’t-touch-me phase! First of all, I’m glad that you liked it! What I would give to feel the same as you, you lucky duck!
Okay, here are my problems with the series finale:
Marshall and Lily were treated as an afterthought in this episode. It’s like they didn’t really exist! But my main beef with this is the way they treated Lily.
Over the past season we saw Lily become her own, we saw her fight for her future, something that she’s passionate for… But in the end they reduced her to a wife who pops out kid after kid after kid… She literally has the future she’s always feared and that sucks!
Barney and Robyn’s divorce didn’t really come out of nowhere. I understand why they did it. What I don’t understand is why they built up their relationship from the moment they kissed, heck they even dedicated an ENTIRE SEASON to their wedding only to have them divorce within the first 10 minutes of the show? Way to give the viewers whiplash, writers. A lot of us spent 6 years rooting for them and this is what we got? I call bullshit.
Barney’s 9 years of character development just evaporated within the first 30 minutes of the show. After his divorce with Robyn, he saw himself as forever being ‘that guy who bangs random women’ which is heartbreaking because he never gave himself enough credit. Barney deserved better than this crap storyline they gave him. And I don’t care what people say, just because he had a baby doesn’t change the fact that they ruined his character. Also the fact that they called the woman who had his baby #30-something is just disgusting. The least they could’ve done was give her a name…
The mother’s part was the part I hated the most. They spent 9 seasons building up how Ted would meet the mother, subtly dropping hints here and there… They made us wait season after season, made us anticipate when he would meet her, made us wonder “OH IS HE GOING TO MEET HER NOW?!”, for 9 years… They made us fall in love with her from the moment we saw her. But worst of all, they made us believe that the mother was Ted’s true love when it’s not true at all. To me, the mother was just a consolation prize, and Tracy deserved so much more than that. I mean, Ted, the guy who prides himself in all of his big romantic gestures wouldn’t marry the mother of his children for 5 years? Yeah, that was a likely story… I feel like the writers used her as a surrogate for Ted and Robyn which is disgusting. It was a giant FU to the audience when she died because this was not how it was supposed to go. And the fact that we never even got to see Ted or the kids grieve was the icing on the cake. What was the point in meeting the mother? What was the point of this entire show? For this, I felt completely betrayed.
Ted and Robyn. If this episode happened in season 4 I might not have been that upset. Back then, Ted and Robyn made sense. But after an entire 7 years of Ted trying to get over Robyn and 1 successful season of him actually getting over Robyn, I was upset when we found out that he never actually was, bringing me back to my point about what was the point of this entire season/series?
Basically by the end of this episode, all of the characters ended up back in square one. LITERALLY where they all started out and that was the most upsetting bit of all…
This finale was meant to tie up loose ends, not shake things up and leave the viewers going “what the hell just happened here?”. It was a horrible slap in the face to fans who have invested 9 years into this show… So when people say “chill out dude it’s just a show” I won’t accept it because 9 years loving something is a damn long time and the fact that they screwed up so bad that it taints all 9 seasons means something to me. I don’t think I’ll be able to go back and rewatch the show… Not now and maybe not ever… Hey it’s their loss though.
To say I was disappointed in the series finale of How I Met Your Mother is a gross understatement. I am disconcertingly, irretrievably, unfathomably disappointed in the way you chose to end what used to be my absolute favorite television…
Can we all just agree that: 1. The finale never happened. 2. Ted and Tracy lived a long, happy life together. They’re now an old, happy retired couple who run a part-time kindergarten. Their kids are screenwriters who made it big with a show about their dad. 3. Robin and Barney are currently…
**SPOILERS AHEAD. Do not read if you have not seen the series finale.**
Let me start by saying that I will still love this show for a long time, and that if it’s on TBS or the CW or any other channel in syndication, I’m sure I’ll flip it on because it feels familiar and comforting.
