I liked everything except the robin-barney divorce. I thought that was bullshit. I knew the mom was going to die a long time ago, so that wasn’t a surprise. I was pissed that they tried to do a turn with the whole story at the end that it was really about him wanting to date Robin. WHAT!? Jesus christ, no. That’s so stupid. 

And honestly, the fact that him and Robin are getting back together after they failed SO MANY TIMES just feels like a cop out.

Tardy to the party, but I wasn’t a fan of the finale. I kind of saw the Barney-Robin divorce coming, but hated how Ted’s kids were all like, “Go for it, Dad!” I mean, I know there was a 6 year gap between Tracey’s death and going back to Robin, but still. It just didn’t sit right with me.

Barney’s talk with his daughter had me in legit tears, though.

I started watching the show like 4 or 5 years ago, so I missed most of the early stuff. And though I thought it had some nice moments, I did not love this finale.

The title of the show is How I Met Your Mother, and I appreciate that the concept is how I became the person who met your mother, and how it was fate, and that there’s a reason I’m spending 8 hours telling my teenage children about it. 

But I never thought Ted and Robin had good romantic chemistry, and that was made even more clear by how perfect and adorable Ted and Tracy were. And they didn’t do anything with future Robin and Ted to show how they had grown into people who could have sex and grow old together and be happy. T

his season I fell in love with Tracy. I can respect that she died, I can’t respect that she died with “and then she got sick.” She didn’t even have a line in her last scene. I know the show wasn’t My and Your Mother’s Love Story, but if you’re going to spend the equivalent of half a season on it, have the balls to talk about her death. And if you’re going to spend the rest of that season on a wedding, don’t end it with our marriage isn’t working because of my job, so let’s get divorced immediately and not discuss the possibility that I could get a different job.


I think it would have been possible to use the final season to set up an amazing finale, but that didn’t happen. Could’ve been worse though, overall I liked what happened with Lily and Marshall.

I don’t know how I feel. I did like Ted and Robin together though.

Ok, so finally watched it. Got to say I was pleasantly surprised–thought it was going to be uber awful based on what I’ve read online. However, where they lost me was right at the end when the kids are like egging him on to date Aunt Robin…um what? That was just stupid. I agree w/ PP that they should have had the friends just supporting him in his time of need after she died or something. 6 yrs is not that long to lose someone so close to you and to have the kids talking as tho their mom was some random is just absurd.
