What started as a great comedy series, ended as a struggle to finish an episode. Recommended but stop watching when it starts getting uncomfortable..

OH god, I'll miss this so much :'(

This show is legen...wait for it, dary XD

"How I Met Your Mother" has one of the worst endings in tv no entertainment history. What a slap in the face to everybody who watched this show for 9 years and yet this show still has a 9 out of 10 for me. Why is that? Because I truly believe this is one of the best shows of all time so many good quotes and catchphrases and running gags and this show is so memorable and you love all the characters so much and you always feel weird when a show you love ends but when it ends like this you are just so angry and upset. I had heard that people were very angry about the ending of this show but I thought that was because they didn't like the mother and thought Ted and Robin should end up together turns out it was the total opposite. Ted and Robin were never electric togther they had they're moments but weren't even close to Barney and Robin. The last few seasons still have great episodes but the writing descions as a whole were terrible. I wasn't sure what they were pushing having Barney and Robin engaged but still hinting that Ted and Robin had feelings for each other it was like COME ON MAKE A DESCION and I thought they were just gonna have bad writing hinting those feelings and have them both end up with someone else but the writers said no lets have terrible writing. You spend literally an entire season with Robin and Barney's wedding AN ENTIRE SEASON then in the next episode were told they get divorced. Nobody gives a crap about Ted and Robin now you have barney pretty much depressed but hiding it, Tracy dead who I loved btw all for a couple nobody even shipped.

The best series ever, legen...wait for it..dary

Seasons 8 & 9 were sappy, romance bullshit. Did they forget this was supposed to be a comedy? Why the fuck did I keep watching such garbage?

avatar

The ending wasn't bad, it was just unexpected. I love this show from the first to the last season. I could watch all the seasons over a hundred times and I wouldn't get bored. I really do love it and recommend it to all. Stinson out.

For a show that is more or less Friends 2.0 (started in 2005 after Friends ended in 2004 and about a group of twenty something year old friends that hangout in a city, go to a local coffee shop/bar, have the attractive and single female of the group Rachel/Robin, and the hopeless romantic that's super quirky Ross/Ted, and heavily focuses on the single shenanigans of the other guy in the group Joey/Barney), this show get's it right and lives up to the hype. Well at least for the first seven seasons. Season 8 starts to see repetitive/frustrating plot points, and Season 9 seems largely thrown together loosely about shenanigans and doesn't really focus on what the audience wants to see. Where Friends nails the ending, How I Met Your Mother flutters. Regardless, still one hell of a show and should be one that everyone checks out. Average Season Review: 8.33/10 Recommendation - Must See (for Sitcom Fans)
