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.
I say satisfied because, omg, it left me with because it left me with so many new questions.
First off, I had to do an imdb Veronica Mars search to refresh my memory regarding Carrie Bishop.
The original actress was Leighton Meester (of Blair Waldorf from Gossip Girl fame) but was portrayed by an unknown Andrea Estella in the movie.
No wonder I didn’t remember.
Ok, first thing that seriously bothered me is why Wallace is working at the school as a coach.
After making such a big deal about Wallace studying mechanical engineering or whatever it was all throughout Season 3, why isn’t he working in that field?!?
And what is going to happen to the Kane’s. How’s Duncan doing on the run with the baby (the Kane security guy knows where he is or, at least, was the last one seen in contact with him after he did the hit on Aaron Echols). Did Veronica really let it go about Jake Kane being the one to release her sex tape? Why didn’t Weevil finger Celeste Kane as the one who shot him?
Speaking of Weevil, is he back in the gang for good or will he go back to being daddy goody two shoes with his wife and kid.
Is Dick Casablanca really on prescription weed? Can’t really blame the guy after all that he has been through. He personified tears of a clown if you ask me. Or, to be more modern, fake it til you make it. His slogan is now wake, bake, fake, and make.
Ten years after graduating from high school in Neptune, California, Veronica Mars is back in the land of sun, sand, crime, and corruption. She’s traded in her law degree for her old private investigating license, struggling to keep Mars Investigations afloat on the scant cash earned by catching cheating spouses until she can score her first big case.
Now it’s spring break, and college students descend on Neptune, transforming the beaches and boardwalks into a frenzied, week-long rave. When a girl disappears from a party, Veronica is called in to investigate. But this is no simple missing person’s case; the house the girl vanished from belongs to a man with serious criminal ties, and soon Veronica is plunged into a dangerous underworld of drugs and organized crime. And when a major break in the investigation has a shocking connection to Veronica’s past, the case hits closer to home than she ever imagined.
I gots ta have it!!! Lol.
I have a google alert to see if there is ever going to be a Season 4 or another Veronica Mars movie.
I was busily linking products on my blog to the appropriate Amazon product when I saw the advertisement for the Amazon Fire phone.
In both curiosity, and I admit, a tinge of excitement, I clicked over and took a looksy.
Reading the product description, although the cloak it in how the features will benefit the consumer, I read into the description that the phone will be constantly pushing Amazon products.
Which could be quite annoying.
I can’t say for sure being as I have yet to lay my hands on the phone personally.
