How I Met Your Mother
This post contains spoilers. If you haven’t seen the ‘How I Met Your Mother’ finale yet, we suggest you watch it first and then catch us here.
So, after nine seasons, 208 episodes, one of the most loved sitcoms, ‘How I Met Your Mother’, has come to an end. While some are heaping praise on the writers of HIMYM, others cannot stop bashing the ‘mother of all secrets’.
Honestly speaking, we found the finale legen...wait for it...you know what’s coming....dary, LEGENDARY. Right from the Pilot episode where Ted (Josh Radnor) stole that Blue French Horn for Robin (Cobie Smulders), we felt she was the yin to Ted’s yang. In fact, we believe creators Craig Thomas and Carter Bays too felt the same way. What makes us say so? Well, Cobie Smulders revealed in a recent interview that the scene where Ted’s kids convince him to ask out aunt Robin in the last episode was shot 8 years ago, during the first season!
‘How I Met Your Mother’ has always been a brutally honest show. Think about it; the makers could have played safe and easily ended the show with Ted mouthing the lines, ‘and that is how I met your mother.’ They chose not to. Life isn’t a fairytale. We meet some people in life, fall in love with some, we drift apart and realize how much we miss them. I remember reading a post which read: ‘Everyone has their own ‘Robin’, the person that you love very much, but cannot be with, and whoever you’ll meet, whatever you’ll do, nothing will be like it would be with Robin.’
Dayum! We feel like we have lost five best friends. Team ‘How I Met Your Mother’, you guys have done a bang-up job. Thanks for all the AWESOME and LEGENDARY moments.
