How I met surrogate mother
3 April 2014 | by tufreehSee all my reviews

Ted and Robin shippers are happy that Ted / Robin became couple in the end that is why they didn't see what others see.

Out of the small number people that enjoyed the finale specially , the excuse I see the most is: "Well, the mother dying? That's life, after all." Oh, really? Good for you, guys. I don't need HIMYM to teach ME any life lessons. I'm pretty sure we all have our share of painful lessons our lives taught us of our own and if I want to see what life looks like in all its cruelty, watching the news is enough. Or, at least, I watch a drama.

But if I decide to watch a SIT-COM, I want the HAPPY END... and, you know writers? A happy end doesn't involve a character who gets killed off just because you want to forcefully achieve an ending that, after 9 years from the pilot, is now pointless. Flexibility, in this case, would have been the perfect route.

We are not angry that Barney / Robin divorced or mother's death we hated because they wasted fans' 9 years.

Barney proposed to Robin is one the most romantic and beautiful proposal in any television history. they destroyed that . If you want T/R final you should not made B/ R as couple. Instead that C&C should show this proposal from Ted to Robin.

They destroyed whole 9th season and wasted our time by showing Wedding but divorced them immediately and in rushed. They should show wedding in 1-2 episodes only and later whole season should be shown how they will going to separate.

Worst to all, they ruined mother's character , they should make Jeanette or Karen as the mother so that it will be happy ending that Ted dating Robin again in the end. Instead they show character who loved by majority of fans and killed her in rushed and without moaning and proper funeral. She looks like a just baby making machine instead of Ted's soul mate or Love of life.

Last few minutes of last episode destroyed the title of the series , Should be title as "How I met surrogate mother" or "How I bang your Aunt".
