As it turns out, this show makes me groan more than laugh and cringe more than chuckle. HIMYM was over-hyped, to say the least. Every week.
Fans got to know the mother and watch her become a real character in the show for the first time, but they were not able to actually witness the moment she and Ted meet until the last five minutes of the final episode. While their meeting was the moment that everyone had been waiting for since the very first episode, it was not what had everybody talking after the series finale. Viewers almost did not have time to process what was happening while the mother is revealed to be deceased for six years, the kids encourage Ted to call Robin, and he makes his way to her apartment, holding out the one and only blue french horn.

Ted had a comfortable upbringing, especially since the entire Mosby family is known for its avoidance of any subject that would bring discomfort or conflict. Ted had very few friends growing up, an inside joke among his current crew, but bonded quickly with best friend Marshall Eriksen as college freshmen at Wesleyan. Apartment 4C has two bedrooms, the other currently occupied by Marshall and Lily. Due to three out of five members of the gang residing there, The Apartment is a constant hub of activity.
By Nikki Finke. Understandably, Thomas and Bays had requested a decision to be made by the end of this month because of the overarching mythology of the show, which needs to finally begin building toward that big mother reveal when an end date is set. It was well-known that Segel was the lone holdout with everyone else wanting to continue.
Tantrum is an energy drink which according to Future Ted has "the highest caffeine level legally available over the counter". In college, Ted and Marshall drank this during the road trip from Wesleyan to the pizzeria Gazzola's. The drink brought on a severe caffeine high and according to Ted, made him colorblind for two weeks.
Did anyone notice the big hangup that the mother has from this past weeks episode?? She turns down the marriage proposal from Louis, after talking to Max, the first real love of her life in the sky. But yet she moves passed it and accepts the marriage proposal from Ted?
Nevertheless, the one-hour finale reinforced the sense that this was a show willing to take chances, and one that at its best deftly mixed melancholy and sentimentality with — finally — how to reach happily ever after. Somewhat appropriately, the series came back to its key characters, zeroing in on the relationship between Ted and Robin Cobie Smulders that often felt so right in season one. For many, the emotion of the hour will overcome such nitpicking, and there was certainly a lot of heart in it — the best moment in that regard coming from Neil Patrick Harriswhen the skirt-chasing Barney finally comes face to face with the woman who will actually change him, his baby daughter. As a bonus, the network had the multi-talented Harris as a ready-made host for events from the Tonys to the Emmys.
A big task, for sure. The Huffington Post sat down with NPH as he took a break from rehearsing his fourth episode of "Best Time Ever" to talk about the Internet, his pranking philosophy and why Barney Stinson probably won't be making an appearance anytime soon. So, I've seen you chatting with fans on Twitter.
