‘How I Met Your Mother’ series finale just ended, and the fans are not happy. Why did the series finale fail so much? We watched this TV series for many years, and now it is over. Most fans would have been sad at the ending of the show, but most were surprised about how angry they would become at watching the ending of it. Here are some of the reasons why “How I Met Your Mother” was met with finale disappointment from its fans:
The number one reason why fans are upset probably is because after watching nine seasons to find out who the mother actually was we discover she died. Not only did she die, but it was glossed over in the show. She simply got sick and died. When Ted is talking to his kids about how he met their mother she was already dead for six years. How could you not be sad and disappointed over this news?
Robin and Barney
Another shocker was that after watching for an entire year Robin and Barney work their way up to marriage then they went off and got a surprise divorce three years later. They shocked their friends with this news. The whole telling of the divorce was sad. Lily was crying, of course. They went their separate paths after, and to be honest they seemed more miserable for having ended their marriage.
Exactly how many flashbacks were there in the series finale? I know I lost count. It was choppy, and it tried to cram too much knowledge at once. The fans had trouble keeping track of it all. Plus, it was hard to face one shocking show truth for another soon to follow. The fans needed time to digest all the information that was being thrown at us.
Ted and Robin
Did I secretly wish that Ted and Robin would get together? I did, and I bet most fans did at one time too during the airing of the “How I Met Your Mother” show. However, the way Ted and Robin finally got together was jarring. His racing to her apartment in New York City with his blue French horn was telling, but not exactly a great way to end the series. We still hadn’t gotten over the fact the “mother” was dead. Suddenly Ted is with Robin? It is no wonder that most fans walked away after watching the “How I Met Your Mother” series finale feeling angry and disappointed.
