News & Interviews for How I Met Your Mother: Season 9
For some, [the] surprise was a disappointment. But disappointment is expecting that a life has only one love story, that happily ever after only happens once, that surprises, good and bad, happen along the way.
This finale seems to completely sour the show's legacy - something that is not more important than ever.
All told, the finale, like the series itself, was fine, if not, alas, legendary. But hey, unlike some of the shows that have come and gone while Ted searched for his dream girl, it certainly beat a slap to the face.
This isn't a perfect ending... But a straightforward, fairytale ending for Ted and Tracy wouldn't have served viewers, and it would have been beyond boring.
I wish I was as thrilled by the ending as the beginning, but I'm grateful that so many episodes stand up to multiple, multiple viewings.
The result of [the writers'] plan was among the more maddening things I've seen in the finale of a show I at one point loved.
"Last Forever" brought up the idea of true love versus soul mates, and a bit about fate, but if I wanted to watch a series about how your soulmate might not be the love of your life, I'd have watched Dawson's Creek, a series which did it much better.
Lest you think How I Met Your Mother was going to skip over the good parts of Ted and The Mother's relationship, Monday night's episode delivered another milestone in their romance.
Fortunately for HIMYM, the time-turning precedent for the season only strengthens such a radical episode's premise.
In spite of a couple of lovely moments, the "HIMYM" finale was a terrible miscalculation.
Audience Reviews for How I Met Your Mother: Season 9
Feb 23, 2021Ending ruined entire series. Absolutely disgusted with ending of a great series. Ted who is fundamentally a good man, who always put others before himself, (others that never seemed to be there for him, even at the opening of his building all his friends had made other plans), then has to endure a devastating loss along with his children once he has eventually found happiness. Oh but don't worry he goes back to the woman who is supposedly his soul mate although she broke his heart on more than one occasion, thus making a mockery out of his relationship with Tracy. Should have killed off Robin and let everyone get on with their lives.
Jan 28, 2021♦️ The end? We can only hope they don't decide to make a 20 year reunion movie. Then the creation of the universe would have been in vain! ♦️
Dec 10, 2020A great season which has been ruined in the eyes of many by one single decision in the finale. The moments shown between Ted and the Mother are exactly what I wanted to see. In fact, anyone distracted by the ending should just go to YouTube and watch the alternative ending, which would have resulted in an essentially perfect ending to a great show. Still, the canon ending prevents me from giving a full five stars.
Dec 05, 2020One of my favorite shows, and contrary to what some may think, the finale is one of the best and most well thought out in tv history. Everything comes full circle beautifully and all of the "easter eggs" left throughout the series finally make sense.
Sep 11, 2020Overall, I liked this season, but the ending is to this day, the worst ending I have ever seen and there's some competition in there. Do yourself a favor and don't watch this show and if you do, when you reach 9x24 (the last episode), stop at 14:34, look for the alternate ending on Youtube and pretend that's the ending.
Jun 14, 2020This review pertains to the entire series. Overall, HIMYM is a heartwarming, entertaining ride filled with the MacLaren gang's ups and downs. I can't believe it took me this long to watch and as a young person watching this in 2020, I can definitely see how this became one of the top sitcoms several years ago. It has a great blend of emotional turmoil and humor, along with wholesome (and not-so-wholesome) moments of friendship, drama, and romance. However, I personally felt that while the series performed rather well, it also made mistakes in the execution of its comedy and its overall narrative. For me at least, the humor would lean too much towards the struggles of the "dry bachelor" (aka boobs, banging, etc.) to the point where many of their conversations revolved around this sole topic alone. And while this is entertaining, there were plenty of times when I preferred that the episode went straight to the point with regard to the plot. Another point of contention is the ending of HIMYM, which affects the entire plot. While I am definitely a proponent for having more than one romantic love in a lifetime, I believe the way Seasons 8 and 9 were executed did NOT make the ending satisfying at all for the audience. It felt as if the ending was made for an entirely different plotline, just with the same characters. Why did the show build up Robin and Barney, painstakingly developing them into much more mature people, only to have them break up over lifestyle differences? While this sort of makes sense, it also really DOESN'T, because the ending did not tie up the loose ends from previous seasons -- it only created more. I am very glad that Ted and Tracy experienced their true love and relationship together and I am alright with Ted and Robin getting together after Tracy passed away, but the series presented this with a plethora of inconsistencies and questions rather than answers. Still, I do think HIMYM is worthy of being a sitcom classic. Although it leaves you with the feeling of wasted potential, it is a roughly polished gem that will surely remain to be a delight among many.
May 09, 2020The last season of Himym puts a little stain on the all time great sitcom that it is. The final season is uneventful and scratched out.
Mar 17, 2020This was the last season, and it was sad seeing it end! The show was pretty sad, but at the same time, there were some happy episodes. Had to see two endings to this, since there was an alternative ending to it. I think both of the endings were pretty great! Had to see it on DVD since I never seen this show! Finally finished it like months ago! This was GREAT and AWESOME!!! Definitely recommend watching this show!
Feb 11, 2020This season was a disservice to the fans who spent hours to years of finding out who the mother was, and the character development all those years. All those years of developing each character only to undo them at the very end? Not cool.
Feb 03, 2020La mejor serie de todos los tiempos ¡La amo!
