It had to happen. Every time the symbolic series ends, the communities roar again, expressing their opposition at the end of the story. It happened to Lost, it happened to The Sopranos, it happened to Battlestar Galactica, it happened a few weeks ago to True Detective, and it could have happened to Heroes if anyone ever saw the outcome. Now is the time for How I Met Your Mother, the symbolism-laden comedy that kept us on our toes for nine seasons, making us think that guessing who the mother was was the most important thing. But this was not the situation in the slightest, and several were not happy with the final twist of the plot.
We are not exaggerating when we mention that the series, created by Carter Bays and Craig Thomas, is one of the most successful, beloved and memorable science fiction series to date. -fi recent projects. years. The sitcom, which follows the adventures and misadventures of Ted (Josh Radnor), Robin (Cobie Smulders), Lily (Alyson Hannigan), Marshall (Jason Segel) and Barney (Neil Patrick Harris), became one of those stories that very difficult to forget and not only because of its vibrant composition or its likeable individuals, but rather because for nine seasons it went beyond offering us moments of laughter: the CBS series went ahead and knew how to arm itself with the philosophy of life that came with it. until the last minute…
To start with, you have to consider the enormous carnage they did with the time aspect. We spent a while at Robin and Barney’s wedding. The episodes are long and it seems that they will never leave this hateful hotel. The stories that happen there are not the ones we like, they are not from the bar. Those of the street And we spend 22 episodes walking towards an end that will never come. But suddenly everything changes, and in the last 2 episodes (which should add 40 minutes in total), each and every one of the guys develops fiercely, their lives change every 2 minutes, and some even regress in incredible ways. . And yes, I’m talking about the character of Barney Stinson. I find it very appropriate that he has become a single father of… little girls! It’s an essential moral that still scares the Barney character, but you can’t do it like they did. Barney was cocky, but he went through Robin, he evolved quite a bit, and sometimes we didn’t think he was capable of pulling it off. But it was, and you can’t change that in the last ten minutes of a show that added a million episodes. Robin comes out of his story and Barney is back to the flat character he was at the beginning. We do not suppose in it because we do not suppose in it.
How I met your mother, the eternal discussion
And again it’s time to talk about endings, very difficult endings. Finishing a series is always very difficult, often much more difficult than a movie. They are years and years of making stories, trying to continue the general line.
In the situation of comedies like Friends or How I Met Your Mother, it is even more difficult. You might think that since they’re humor directed, the outcome isn’t essential, but that’s not the way it is.
The original outcome of How I Met Your Mother
The outcome that we all know is the one in which the group of friends meet again before the huge wedding of Ted and Tracy (yes, the mother of their children) and they make a toast to them. Here Barney and Robin break up and Barney meets his son.
