Re: How I Met Your Mother: The Final Season

Was watching a rerun on FXX tonight; it was the Thanksgiving episode early in the series that had the gag at the end where the stripper introduces herself to Ted; then future Ted tells the kids "And that's how I met your mother" to their shock.

The interesting thing is that the stripper introduced herself as Tracy. They gave us the mother's name way back then, but it wasn't an obvious mention. It makes sense, though; the kids wouldn't have fallen for the joke if the stripper had a different name than their mother.

Re: How I Met Your Mother: The Final Season

I've been watching the 7th and 8th season since the finale and there are all kinds of hints about what is going to happen. Victoria breaks up with Ted by telling him him and Robin are going to end up together. Even if it takes 15 years.

I have nothing against "the Mother" but Victoria is still my favorite among the girls Ted has dated other than Robin. Their Romance was beautiful. Robin and Ted had good chemistry though.

"Tracy" has been a fan-favorite speculation for the Mother's name for the past 8 years for this very reason.

Again, just because they HAD a plan doesn't make it a good plan.

Again, just because you didn't like the finale, it doesn't necessarily mean it was terrible, either.

Erm, sure it does, because opinion is subjective. If I didn't think it was terrible, why would I dislike it?


But go ahead and say how it's objectively not terrible.

Re: How I Met Your Mother: The Final Season

Come down off your pedestal, chief. You are taking the relative quality of the piece and applying your own subjective opinion to it. That's fine.

But just because you did not like the finale, it does not follow that from each and every other possible perspective it must also be terrible and only terrible. You are not the omniscient arbiter of quality, no matter how much you seem to believe you are.

Well, it means it to him. That's really all that matters. You thinking it was great does not change my opinion on the matter. Opinions are funny, you know that from being in the biz. It could be (on paper) a perfect script, and it can bomb and then the suits do what they do.

If opinions didn't mater then we'd be on season 12 of Firefly and Johnny Depp wouldn't be constant recast in the same God damned role in every move he's been in ever.

Re: How I Met Your Mother: The Final Season

I'm not trying to change anyone's opinion on the matter. I was simply pointing out that just because one person hated the show it didn't mean that everyone did.

I appreciate the explanation about how opinions work but it's unnecessary. I'm well aware how they work.

Sorry, but you are the one on the pedestal here.

From his perspective - you know, the one that matters to him - the finale was shit. That's the end of it.
That others liked it or didn't think it was awful, doesn't change his perspective.

And, yes, he IS "the omniscient arbiter of quality" when it comes what he likes about his entertainment and what he doesn't like.

Re: How I Met Your Mother: The Final Season

I wish I had the eloquency to elaborate on it, but I'm in the "the finale was terrible" camp, too. It wasn't all bad and had some really nice moments, but (1) destroying Robin/Barney in one episode, (2) letting the mother die like it's no big deal with no time for the audience to grief and (3) having Ted end up with Robin was simply enough for me. I still love the series and the characters, but this finale was utter bullshit and a slap in the face to the fans.

I'm looking forward to what exactly the alternate ending on the DVD will be. Any news on that?

They didn't shoot a real alternate ending. They just cut it differently.

So it might not be that much different from the fan made ending on Youtube.
