Thanks to Amazon Prime (or Netflix, if you prefer), I have finally watched the How I Met Your Mother finale.
I must join the horde of fanaddicts who abhorred the How I Met Your Mother ending.
(Yellow Umbrella > Blue French Horn)
I was ok with them killing of The Mother.
That could have been the sad series finale twist.
Or maybe Ted telling his kids that he was dying too.
They had to piss me off by breaking up Robin and Barney.
When in (my) reality, they should have become some sort of power couple.
And I hated that Ted went running back to Robin.
It pretty much nullified his relationship with The Mother.
After all, he was moving to Chicago because his best friend was marrying the love of his life.
So maybe he just settled for The Mother because she was good enough since he couldn’t have Robin.
Boo! Hiss!! No!!!
I hated that Robin regressed back to a single-minded career woman living alone with her dogs until her Prince (Ted) comes to rescue her.
I am so sick of strong women always ending up alone on tv shows.
I did love that Barney fell in love with his daughter but it should have been Robin’s daughter too.
Barney (and apparently Robin too) has enough money to invest in experimental treatments to get her pregnant.
Or they could have had a surrogate.
Nevertheless, I bid faretheewell to Robin Scherbatsky (Jacoba Francisca Maria “Cobie” Smulders), Lily Aldrin (Alyson Lee Hannigan), Barney Stinson (Neil Patrick Harris), Marshall Eriksen (Jason Jordan Segel), and Theodore Evelyn “Ted” Mosby (Josh T. Radnor).
And though I hardly knew you, R.I.P. Tracy McConnell (aka The Mother, Cristin Milioti).
P.S. Here is the alternate HIMYM finale.
Not nearly as polished as the real finale but a much more satisfying resolution.
And for us Robin Sparkles fans…Sing it again, Coby!
Ok, her voice was really bad so that may be why this scene was deleted.
And they solved the mystery of the pineapple…
