It's been three days since the series finale of the CBS sitcom "How I Met Your Mother" and fans of the show, some of them now ex-fans, are STILL furious. We cover the reaction on our latest episode of Daily Rehash.
Fans are so upset they've actually started a petition asking CBS to rewrite and reshoot the finale although it's highly unlikely CBS will do anything of the sort. The disappointed tweets are still pouring in.
Shouldve been called 'how Ted finally made it out of the friendzone' #himymfinale— Vinay Tanna (@vinaytanna1) April 2, 2014
Its like Rowling ended Harry Potter with dead Ginny and divorced Ron just so that Harry and Hermionie could end up together. #HIMYMFinale— Bearh (@Faraharyyani) April 2, 2014
WHAT KIND OF KIDS ARE JUST LIKE OH YEAH DAD YOU NEVER LOVED OUR DEAD MOM YOU LOVED AUNT ROBIN THE WHOLE TIME #HIMYMFinale— Andri Kusumo (@andrikusumo) April 2, 2014
This twitter user is trying her best to forget.
Let's say CBS agreed to rewriting and reshooting the script. How do the upset fans want the show to end?
Seems like the general consensus is fans would've been very happy to end the show at the exact moment Ted met Tracy and before the whole Barney and Robin get divorced, Ted's wife dies, and Ted starts to date Robin story line.
This next video which came out almost a year ago, went through a whole bunch of alternate endings. Many of which were definitely funnier than the actual ending.
But who knows if any ending could satisfy the fans. Deep down, maybe their anger is rooted in their inability to let the show go. Think about it.
IF YOU LIKED ROBIN AND TED TOGETHER SO MUCH THEN MAYBE YOU SHOULD HAVE ENDED THE SHOW AT S01 E01 #HIMYMFinale— Khadeeja Ahmed (@Khadeeja_Ahmed) April 3, 2014
There's one side of the story that isn't being told through all of this controversy. What about the people who enjoyed the finale?
The ending was really messy and tragic but that's life, you know? Not every story gets a happy ending. #HIMYMFinale— Jonathan (@j_balcazar) April 2, 2014
Beautiful ending. All of Ted's greatest fears and wishes came true. Life can be messy, but it all works out if you keep up. #HIMYMFinale— jason utas (@jasonutas) April 1, 2014
The #HIMYMFinale reactions seem to suggest peoples' inability to accept real life. Life's messy, happy endings rare, so make the best of it.— Jeremy Sites (@PhinneasQ) April 2, 2014
Should viewers have to accept real life on a fake TV show? Just saying.
How would you have wrapped up How I Met Your Mother? OR is the ending just perfect the way it is?
