After nine seasons on CBS, ‘How I Met Your Mother’, or,  for those who watched the show with any regularity ‘HIMYM’, has come to an end.

I would warn you that there are MASSIVE SPOILERS ahead…but I waited a whole day, just in case someone dvr’d it, so that all these details could safely be put into circulation.   You’re welcome-  :)

The reviews for this show has been pretty solid for all 9 seasons.  It has a solid fan base and has even introduced words and jokes into national slang…  ‘Slapsgiving’  ‘The Bro Code’, etc…

Lessons and character development in this show were done perfectly…towards the end, questions were resolved…Barney and Robin had overcome SO much and were getting married…Ted FINALLY met ‘The Mother’ and Marshall and Lily were on their 3rd child…

Then along comes the finale.  A happy ending?  A glimpse into a future where they are all still each other’s family?

NO.

The shows creator’s and writers tore everything apart.    I understand….I get it…Life isn’t fair…it doesn’t always have a happy ending…people don’t always stay together.  But that’s LIFE.  Not a 30 minute really good sitcom that had people forgetting for just a bit about LIFE and sitting down to relax and laugh.

Apparently, I’m not in the minority.  The only positive review I saw was from ‘Entertainment Weekly’.  So I’ll show ya that one and then the angriest review, believe it or not, comes from ‘Time.’  Yes….’Time’ magazine!   I’ll include that, too…

Most importantly…what did YOU think?
