Critic Reviews for How I Met Your Mother: Season 9

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (2)

In spite of a couple of lovely moments, the "HIMYM" finale was a terrible miscalculation.

Akron Beacon Journal

The ultimate takeaway from the final season is that series creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas were at once too good and not good enough to tell the story they ultimately wanted to tell.

Here's to hoping the final eight episodes will continue to make [the Mother] invaluable to the show's story. After all, she's the reason How I Met Your Mother is great again.

Tampa Bay Times

Monday night's "The Lighthouse" was a real beacon of hope for fans... because for the first time since the pilot, we saw The Mother and Ted together. And what's more, this shared moment was a super special one.

The Loop

Nothing was over-the-top funny, but it was a perfect combination of laughter and sweet moments that really do make up for all of the lackluster episodes in the past few seasons.

I loved the way the two future friends met. Ted's wife definitely would be someone who would ask if a fellow passenger was okay after seeing her distraught. I also liked how she tried to lighten the mood by joking about the cookies.

Audience Reviews for How I Met Your Mother: Season 9

I love this series! But, Season 9 was all over the place. Some episodes were good and some were not. It all lead up to the finale. Which to me is one of the more disappointing finales I have ever seen.

It is really hard to like this season. It is in fact the worst season yet. The only episode I absolutely loved was the "How Your Mother Met Me" one. There were some good laughs and other good episodes but all we got were fillers for most of the season. I didn't exactly have a problem with the ending but just on how horrible it was done. The writers had an entire season to develop the events leading up to their ending and build their story instead of jumping year after year in a single season finale episode and make it feel so rushed. Each of the years deserved an episode, if they wanted me to care for these characters and accept this ending. In the end, it all felt rushed, simplistic and boring.
