After a successful nine-year run, How I Met Your Mother ended on 31 March with its finale episode titled Last Forever leaving the majority of fans enraged!
In fact, the backlash has reached a point where an online petition asking CBS to rewrite and reshoot the finale episode is circulating the web.
HIMYM Finale Spoilers:
Social media is abuzz with tweets and posts by HIMYM fans and viewers about how much they hated the ending.
Although there is a large number of audience who loved the way the series ended, they seem to be the minority.
The 40-minute finale tried to encompass the last nine years of the show all over again. Key events that transpired post Barney and Robin's wedding included their divorce and The Mother dying.
The series ends with Ted standing outside Robin's apartment with the Blue French Horn as the show comes full circle.
Some of the reasons stated by supporters of the online petition are as follows:
"Because I loved this show more than any other show out there, and I can't stand this ending... It wasn't supposed to end like this. I feel as though it's a joke. Let Robin and Barney stay married, they were so right for each other, and most importantly Ted and Tracy should stay together. PLEASE change it!" - Mina Petrova LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM
"It isn't fair, you spent so many episodes telling us Robin and Ted don't work as they have too many different values. One of the major ones will be Robin will still need to travel around, will Ted in his 40 not wanting to settle down as he wanted in his 30s but to travel with Robin?"
"And you just treat Barney as a trash, throw him away after we believed he found his true love and soul mate (he said he always felt there was something missed in his heart, but its now complete with Robin's here)."
"The ending is non-sense and a disgusting joke." - Daisy Tung BOWEN HILLS, AUSTRALIA
"Because I feel that fans deserve a proper ending" - Riyad Siddiqui STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN
