remember when how i met your mother aired it’s series finale and it was so terrible that after it ended people weren’t even sad that it was over, we just couldn’t believe how badly they fucked up the show in it’s last ever episode
So, before October 2018 ended I wanted to make this post. I don’t know how many of you watched How I Met Your Mother. but I did and I loved it and the ending wasn’t the best but that doesn’t change the rest. So here is a nice short walk down memory lane but mostly focusing on the years since the show ended.
First, it’s been 13 years since the gang met at MacLaren’s.
It’s been 4 years since Barney and Robin got married and Ted met Tracy.
And since Ted called Tracy…
It’s been 3 years since Tracy told Ted she was pregnant.
It’s been a little over 2 years since Penny was born, and since Robin and Barney announced their divorce, and since Marshall and Lily announced their 3rd baby.
And, it’s been exactly 2 years since they all said goodbye to the apartment, and since Robin told Lily that it’s not the same as it was, and it would never be that way again, no matter how much they wish for it.
And finally, Marshall got the phone call this year. He’s gonna be a judge in Queens.
Just a little something. I was watching it again and I started to realize how much time it’s been since we last saw the gang… and I miss them.
Barney was Robin’s one true love and divorcing them was a cheap move to finally have Ted end up with her. In a story that advocates for The One and True Love, they did Robin and Barney dirty, two people who grew in the show and developed, for the sake of boring old Ted who didn’t deserve Robin at all. They made us invest all this interest in his wife who we never really know and a wedding that ends up being just a way to kill time. It could have been great but oh no, Ted needed to end up with Robin. It is fucked up and a bad ending and those are the damn facts.
