    Last week I got a notification that Josh Radnor is speaking on campus tonight. Itís was very vague and didnít mention anything else really. So Iím currently in line.

    Haven’t watched this show since it was taken off of Netflix. Miss watching this show.

    He did mention that he wasnít all that big on the finale, but mostly because there were scenes that didnít make the cut that he felt really helped out and make sense. There was a final mock salute scene with Robin that was apparently quite somber, but didnít make it.

    We watched the first two episodes the other night after not seeing them since they aired. I was very annoyed with Robin seeing how flirty she was with Ted, but how she treats him the whole series.

    It's an okay scene. I loved the finale anyways so that scene doesn't really make a difference. And I've heard Radnor himself say that he loved the finale; but he did say he thinks that scene should've made the cut.

    Decent scene, and would have made the ending a LITTLE more palatable but it'd still be awful.

    Finale was one of the worst pieces of television Iíve ever seen...with that said, anyone who lets one episode destroy their thoughts on an amazing amazing show like HIMYM is crazy.

    But it does ruin a lot of it. It takes out the meaning behind all of Ted's relationships and him returning to Robin always was meant to be a character flaw he finally overcame when he found his true love and then she dies and hes like ok back to Robin

    I get that but itís really not difficult, at least for me, to pretend like the mother never died. I have only watched the finale one more time following its actual airing, just to confirm how crappy it was. Besides the mother dying, they pretty much squeezed a whole season into one episode. Iím not sure what the goal of the last season was, but it was pretty terrible. Marshallís story line is cringe worthy. Iím not sure if he was filming a movie and couldnít be on set, but his interaction with the other main characters was limited to phone calls for like half the season. The comedy that drove the show was already fading in the last few seasons but towards the end it just seemed like they went over the top with everything. The last slap episode was pure garbage. The only time the show maintained is authenticity for me during the last season is when they went back and went through all the old characters and the How Your Mother Met Me episode.

    Donít get me wrong, there were some other decent episodes sprinkled in, but the last gold standard HIMYM episode for me was e20 from season 8 when Barney and Ted sing ďFor the Longest Time.Ē

    It sucks that the show fell apart towards the end. For the first few seasons, Iíll even go so far as to say through the 6th season, the show did an excellent job balancing comedy with a continuing drama/romance based story line. Most sitcoms struggle with this. For instance, The Office, one of my favorite shows, is hilarious, but you can jump in at any time. The story line is contained to one episode.

    i vaguely recall that he was mentally checked out of the show but was contractually obligated to finish and this was his way of getting the job done? maybe someone else can confirm/deny this

    I have no issue with the mom dying. My issue is with the little coda of Ted finishing the story and then going to Robin's. Should have ended with them meeting.

    I've probably said it in this thread at some point but anyway...

    Finale >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Final season

    That final season was absolutely dreadful. I couldn't wait for it to be over.

    Agree with the above....did I love the ending? absolutely not...but the finale itself had some highlights that I really enjoyed (Barney with his daughter for example...and Marshall/Lily's conclusion)... I just wish they didnt kill off the mother.

    THe final season as a whole is what was the most disappointing. Why waste 11 episodes on a wedding that leads to a divorce 20 minutes later?

    I thought the wedding lasted the entire season? Maybe not... either way, the whole season was shit.

    Best part of the series was Barney & Marshall and their side stories

    Lilly was the absolute worst

    I don't think I'll ever watch the finale again. When I do a rewatch of the series, I will watch the fan edit on YouTube.
