How I Met Your Mother Finale... - April 1st 2014, 11:31 PM

This thread has been labeled as containing spoilers. The contents of this thread might therefore describe important elements of a storyline that could ruin it for you. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

Just watched the last episode ever with one of my best friends who is as an obsessed fan as I am. If anyone else watched it what did you think??

I honestly can't say what happened hadn't entered my mind already...

I didn't get to see the show (wanted to but got distracted and missed it). I did hear that it left a lot of people not to happy, but I find that with a lot of season/series finales that I have watched.

I haven't seen it yet, but I read what happened. Maybe this will change when I actually see it, but it didn't sound too bad to me. It felt like a win/win since he met this person he was in love with, but also ended up with his soul mate. I didn't expect it to happen, but then again, I'm not a hardcore fan so I haven't seen most of the newest episodes.

I've never been a fan of How I Met Your Mother but there has been posts on Facebook about how they haven't been happy with it either.

To be honest I think there was no way they were going to keep everyone happy with the ending. There were probably lots of people who liked it, but the ones who didn't were more vocal about it on the internet! And apparently the writers have added and alternative ending to the DVD version for the fans who weren't pleased....!!

Personally I can see why a lot of people didn't like it, but I did. I've gotten into a few debates over this already, so I have pretty strong opinions :')

{SPOILER ALERT}

I think lots of people wanted all the buildup of the entire show being about how he met their mother to and with a happily ever after of them, and I get that, but I prefer this ending. In real life there isn't always one single soul mate who you end with forever (though for those who want that, there's still Lily and Marshall, who have exactly that kind of relationship), things don't go perfectly, relationships end, as do lives, and I think the idea that you can/should move in, even after finding 'the one' is a really important one. There are bits I disagree with, mainly the portrayal of the children which just really annoys me because they're so vapid they're not even really characters, and I know there were lots of other bits and pieces they didn't air which are on the DVD (I think) which would have been nice (like the pineapple thing) but overall I'm glad it wasn't the totally clichéd, expected ending - makes a pleasant change.


I'm perfectly normal; it's the rest of the world that's insane.

Haha a lot of people are upset they never solved the pineapple incident... but doesn't he say in that episode that they never figured out where the pineapple came from??

My only issue was that the last episode was so rushed. There was so much detail and time-jumping and it was like it had all been stuffed into the one episode, especially after the whole season was dedicated to Barney and Robin's wedding...
