Where to start. I started watching HIMYM few years back and when heard it’s the last season and saw a picture of the mother, sped up my viewing to catch season 9 live.
I very much enjoyed the end of season 8 and the episode where Ted runs to the mother’s apartment few episodes back. Having seen the mother I was very excited for season 9. It had great potential.
I started season 9 and liked the first episode and now I am on episode 6 and what the hell! 6 episodes and still the wedding? I go online and to my horror find out that all season 9 will be the wedding. So I suppose Ted will meet her at the series final and that’s it?
I have to say that they completely dropped the ball. This is the worst idea I have ever heard and they missed a great opportunity. I was fully expecting to see Cristin Milioti in every episode exploring her relationship with Ted like what all the other great shows have done. To make matters worse, in episode 2 or 3 they show her kissing Ted from the future, whose idea was that? Terrible idea. That’s the payoff. This proves that we will not see their relationship.
Anyway I am very disappointed and they completely ruined the series. They have missed a great opportunity to develop a great relationship. Oh and I can’t take for a second seeing more of Marshall on the road. I mean come on, 6 episodes and he is still on the road?!
