Neil Patrick Harris
'HIMYM' is a comedy about Ted and how he fell in love. It all started when Ted’s best friend, Marshall, drops the bombshell that he’s going to propose to his long-time girlfriend, Lily, a kindergarten teacher. At that moment, Ted realises that he had better get a move on if he hopes to find true love, too. Helping him in his quest is Barney, a penchant for suits and a foolproof way to meet women.
When Ted meets Robin, he’s sure it’s love at first sight, but destiny may have something else in store. The show is told through flashbacks from the future.
It all builds to a climactic two-part series finale, leading to one of the most talked about endings in TV history.

For 8 seasons they stuck with the tried-and-true storyline that brought viewers in, and befuddled us trying to figure out who "Mother" is. Wasn't that always the question on everyone's mind? Ted was the guy we all pulled for, we laughed and cried at his fruitless attempts at true love. And then there's Robin, who also got more strikeouts than hits. It seemed natural (to me) that the two of them would end up together. But, all the references to "Aunt Robin" pretty much put the kibosh on that. She was not Mother, just another failed attempt.
OK - I accepted that and moved on. Even bought into the premise that Robin and Barney would marry. Oooh...you sonovabeech! What a sap I was - that marriage thing was a setup. I would have preferred that Robin just went away, and returned at the very end - but I do get the connection between her life story and Ted's. So why not title the show "How I Met Your Hot Aunt"?
I was delighted when mother was finally revealed. Can't think of a better match for Ted than Tracey. Simply perfect. But alas - we hardly hardly knew her. Like a two-bit documentary, most of their life together was portrayed in quickie snippets, still photos, and a handful of poignent scenes (the train platform was awesome). Really now - you just kill her off and move on? This is hardly the ending such a story deserves.
In the end, I'm left struggling to understand what message the writers were trying to deliver.
True love is an illusion?
If you can't be with the one you love, love the one you're with?
The other man's grass is always greener?
You don't know what you got 'til it's gone?
Ted smoked too much dope in college?
I dunno, maybe it's all of the above. I just think that the story (and the excellent cast) was short-changed by this ending. Not to mention the audience. In spite of all that, it's still a must-see for any mother-lover. A great series that will continue to entertain for a long, long time.
The only problem with the DVD is that for big fans like me, who have bought every single season of the show at each release, have missed out on some special features that can only be found on the "complete collection" box set. Mainly, the series' retrospective. It may not be a big deal, maybe it's only 5-10 minutes or something, but I can't justify spending over $100 for a copy of something I already have and a short documentary.
Still love the show regardless, but I wish they would have thought about the fans like me.
