A Lot of People Are Upset About the “How I Met Your Mother” Ending
The series finale of “How I Met Your Mother” was pretty divisive, and a lot of fans are FUMING about how it ended. In response, one of the creators thanked fans for their passion, even if they disliked the finale. Regardless, the show went out on top, with a series-high of 12.9 million viewers.
Josh Radnor Says “How I Met Your Mother’s” Title Was a “Fake-Out”
JOSH RADNOR, who played Ted on “How I Met Your Mother”, thinks that the fans who are upset about the finale are missing the point a little. He says, quote, “I thought the title of the show was always a bit of a fake-out.
“It was more of a hook to hang the thing on. Really, it was more about . . . ‘These are the crazy adventures and these are the lessons I had to learn before I met your mother.'”
He adds, quote, “I think if you’re going to do something new and bold and daring, you’re going to upset some people and thrill others. It’s better to do that than try to have some homogenized, safe ending that was never really what the show was.”
