How did you feel about the ending. I was 1% disappointed that in the last like five minutes, the mother died and just like that he's back onto Robin. And getting divorced kind of nullified the entire 9th season with the wedding. But other than that, (Barney's character development into being the dad he never had, especially) I was happy with the way it ended and tied with the plot of Ted's favorite book "Love in the Time of Cholera.
I liked it, Just remember it can always be worse!
For all the non-die hard fans who don’t know, they actually filmed the ending with the kids 8 years ago. So if you reflect on the whole show especially the first few seasons it sorta makes sense how the “Unintentionally” story really is about how it’s he still likes Robin and that The Mother was hardly in it like Penny said. Also many people including myself figured the Mother was already dead and that is why he was telling his kids the story of “How I Met Your Mother.
Realistically that Divorce makes sense, and the whole Season 9 was really an excuse for them to do “Future” and “Flashback” scenes. Though some of those episodes were clearly fillers and sort of annoying.
But I’m not going to lie when I saw that Season 9 teaser with the actors who portray the kids and that they can still make them look young, I threw all my earlier predictions out the window and braced myself for whatever.
And of Course I would have preferred the Mother to still be alive and that Ted and her lived happily ever after.
Also I realized from talking to people, a lot of them see themselves as Ted and felt horrible cause he met the love of his life, she died, then he ended up being together with his First love in the show…Those same people have stated that their First Love was horrible and don’t ever wish to settle for them.
I never read “Love in the Time of Cholera.” but good call on connecting the two!
…Where was Bob Saget in all of this?
But in the end I really want to know how Denise Cox Bays feels about this since Ted And The Mother are based on Cater Bays and her. Like does she feel that their husband killed her off in his show? lol
By Tiffany Wang Nothing pisses me off more than when someone says, “I’m just not attracted to Asian men.” I’ve heard these words come out of…
"Does it occur to people that our racial dating preferences have been socially conditioned? That it’s no coincidence we don’t associate Asian men with masculinity and sexual prowess, since they are almost exclusively cast in roles that are limiting and decidedly unsexy?"
learned so much about this in my asian american in film class. so true
