Okay, it took me years after the show ended to really catch up and binge the entire thing, and I have to say...it really is/was one of the best TV shows ever. Just so brilliant with the concept, great characters - I loved it. A lot of people loved it - minus the ending.
One person who agrees the ending sucked...Alyson Hannigan who played Lilly.
ALYSON HANNIGAN doesn't like the way "How I Met Your Mother" ended. Mostly she didn't like NEIL PATRICK HARRIS' character Barney giving up the bachelor life to marry Robin, who was played by COBIE SMULDERS. She also thinks the finale was too short.
"It just seemed too quick. Obviously it was a tear-jerker, but with all the stuff that got cut out it was too fast . . . like 'OK, now we're going to find out the mom's dead, then suddenly, OK, he's with Robin now.' And you're just like, 'Wait, what happened?!'
"There was a funeral scene [that got cut], and all this stuff that I think the audience needed. They needed that time to process that information, instead of having it slap them in the face."
They could always bring it back for a reboot right? Okay maybe not. Ha!
