Re: How I Met Your Mother: The Final Season

I'm a few episodes behind, but I watched this week's installment yesterday. I didn't find anything to complain about.

As for the aunt/uncle thing, in my family there are several people of various degrees of relation with the same given names. When referring to one or the other in conversation, I will use "Aunt So&So" or "Cousin Whatchacallit" the first time, and afterwards just use the first name.

In my family we address our grandparents by whatever nicknames we gave them as children, but aunts and uncles by their first names. I never gave the lack of "aunt" in referring to Robin a second thought.

Yeah, the whole uncle/aunt thing... With my son, we refer to close personal friends of ours as Uncle or Aunt... like "Uncle Paul" who lives nearby. That's what I assume is going on in the show.

I haven't see it yet, but The Actors Studio had the cast of How I met Your Mother on their stage last night.

Watched it this morning. Very good stuff. Cobie does a little bit of Let's Go to the Mall and Jason and NPH do The Confrontation from Les Miz. I was disappointed that Milioti wasn't with them.

After nearly a decade, we're finally down to this.

The one-hour series finale airs tonight.

I think I may actually watch it live, not afterwards on the DVR

Re: How I Met Your Mother: The Final Season

I knew that Barney would end up with a girl. They had to play the karma card.

Wow, a bunch of the seemingly crazy theories people advocated for years were actually true.

Yes but in the end they put it all together in a very satisfying way

Re: How I Met Your Mother: The Final Season

Wow! What a touching ending. The show runners played with our expectations in an unexpected way. The mother couldn't possibly die because too many people were speculating on that for years. Couldn't happen. Then it does. I was so hit by that that I couldn't fully pay attention to the actual meeting at the train stop in the next scene (where we got an actual name of course... Tracy McConnell).

Then there's the other big twist... "How I Met Your Stepmother".

It was about Robin after all. And the actors who played the kids knew this big revelation for years.

Good bye show. It was legen...

Re: How I Met Your Mother: The Final Season

Wow , that was the worst finale I've ever seen. It makes Battlestar look like Citizen Kane.

Seriously, they spend an entire season on Barney and Robin's wedding along with Ted finally getting over Robin and they just fucking throw it all away. I knew that Tracy would die, they foreshadowed it during the season, but they did her a huge disservice by having her die off screen and by making her second to Robin, despite her being perfect for Ted and for her being the mother of his children.

I am so full of hate right now. It is Mass Effect all over again.

Re: How I Met Your Mother: The Final Season

Looks like a lot of people at the IMDb boards didn't like the finale. Personally, I liked it. I liked seeing where everyone ended up over the years and that life doesn't always turn out the way you'd hoped or planned when you were younger and more idealistic.

And SG-17, I agree with you about the mother dying off screen. That's one of the misses that came to mind.

Re: How I Met Your Mother: The Final Season

Thanks for the spoilers. It's on the DVR.

If that's the twist, then I'm happy it worked out that way.

Waiting for the wife to get home. Probably won't watch it tonight, because Castle is up in a bit.
