How I Met Your Mother was a television sitcom that had a total of 9 seasons and ended in 2014. The show was amazing, following a group of friends, Ted, Barney, Marshall, Lily, and Robin. The main plot line, derived from the name of the show, was listening to Ted Mosby tell the very long, detailed story of how he met his wife, to his children. This series was critically acclaimed and loved by a lot of people...until those last five minutes in the season finale. The WHOLE SHOW was based on finding the mother, and in the last five minutes they kill her off and Ted ends up with Robin?! No no no no no no no no no.
Just because the writers always pictured a happy ending between Ted and Robin, doesn't mean that that's how the show had to end. I stand by my statement that Ted and Robin should NOT have ended up together because this was basically just a cop out. They made such a BIG deal about Ted finally letting go of Robin and spent a lot of time focusing on that so that his heart would be ready when he did meet the mother. So all in all, I think that the ending was terrible, and for me, it ruined what I used to consider one of my favorite shows, and that is a sad fact.
