    I cried at the end. How I Met Your Mother still gets me every time.

    The Mother's backstory has kind of a dark tinge to it. She makes Ted look like a buffoon, tbh.

    Or at least a major jerk to the kids. The mothers story, wrapped up in half an hour. His story? 7 years of details about his sex life...

    I am not watching 9 years of "How I Met Your Father". CBS can stick that where the sun does not shine.

    It's a brand new show, that doesn't involve any of the characters from this show. But...no, just no. There's no way that end up being entertaining. It will be "That 80's Show" all over again.

    If the summary is any indication, she had a boyfriend who died when she was 21, met some guy 3 years later, dated him for 6 years, and then met Ted. That seems like a pretty staid story lacking any "juicy bits" in re: the mother.

    I think they should have gotten rid of a few of the other episodes from this season and made 1-2 more of the "how your mother met me" episodes. I feel like they would fit to the story so much more and wouldn't just be filler, and I think that the writers mushing it into 1 episode wasn't smart.

    I laughed pretty hard at Ted's shellfish joke and the mother cracking up when no one else did. She really is a female Ted.

    Has the spin off of the mother been confirmed? because I won't be watching it if it is. I'm already getting tired of How I Met Your Mother and I just wan't it to end already.

    I love the show so much.
    I have yet to see what the mother is like, but personally I'm a huge fan of Victoria. Might be because I've just got an irrational crush on Ashley Williams.
    Also i did not really like the last episode, how your mother met me. Looked like something done quickly and had an overall feeling of unrefined.
    Most enjoyable part was "la vie en rose" bit.

    It was a great show the first 5-6 seasons , after that something changed and frankly this season i just skipped through the episodes , uninspired and just boring really .

    i think the show would've been better if it didnt go for so long and the final season focused more on "the mother" rather than these stupid one off filler episodes.

    the latest episode with the mothers backstory was great!

    lol I think Ted just does that on his own. He's a complete fool, and I think I hate him every time I learn more about him. Kinda funny for someone that's meant to be the "main" character.

    edit: Also thinking back on it, an easy way they could have avoided the stupidity of the framing story would have simply been to have the kids ask the question, then maybe imply that most of the series is ted thinking back on the story (I'll get back to you on that kids!) then maybe the last season is him actually telling the story.

    I still find it odd how apparently the story of meeting their mother involves ted talking about all the random girls he had sex with. "How I met your mother? WELL 1st me and my crazy friend drank every drink in college and then some TV personality you won't know helped us find a HAMBURGER shop. Oh and I had sex with a baker and this girl hated my building but I SEXED HER TOO and then she hated me but then my friends became her friends....wait where are you going! It's only going to take me another 5 or 6 hours at most, come on!....oh well, I'll just keep telling myself, anyway me, I then had sex with another 10 girls, no 20, I was a STUD you see...."

    also amusing when Robin's sister was talking about losing her virginity and he tries to spin it to his kids as a big event, given that he was telling them about his threesome...

    Right before he meets his future wife, no less. Because he didn't do it the last 15 times, I guess he had to be on a beach.

    Much more believable story. Haaaave you met Justin?
    Marshall and Lily make up
    Still confused on this one. Marshall learning not to "compete" with Lily is good, but I don't understand why she was apparently mad in the first place, or why she decided to stay. I don't believe "ghost Lily" was necessarily exactly what real Lily would say.

    Well she was originally mad because Marshall didn't console her about taking the judge job, and then she flipped out when Marshall brought up 7 years ago when they weren't even married and she did something stupid. Maybe ghost Lily wasn't saying exactly what Lily would say, but I think the gist of it was there. They are a family, and they could be a family by staying in New York. It would be hard to go to Italy, and then a year later have to come back to New York without a stable job, and all while taking care of an infant.

I legitimately don't understand the appeal.
    I'm with this, it's not even remotely funny (to me anyways) same as modern family

    It's weird, the show has a laugh track, and even those pre-recorded laughs don't seem to want to laugh at this show.

    And no mention of who she left with or what she did or anything.

    LOL I FELT THAT AS WELL!!!

    I thought the episode was fine except ted and robin's story. You know, we have seen so many god damn fucking Ted letting go of fucking Robin but trust me, he didn't let go. I'm pretty sure he got the locket still
