Alyson Hannigan

'HIMYM' Finale

Could Have Been Better

EXCLUSIVE

043014_alyson_hannigan_launchThe "How I Met Your Mother" finale was not as good as it could have been ... so says series star Alyson Hannigan ... who thinks fans would have liked it more had they not cut out a few key scenes. 

Our photog caught up with Lily Aldrin herself in Brentwood on Wednesday, where she wouldn't cop to not being happy with the finale ... she just wishes fans got to see the whole thing ... including a "gut-wrenching" funeral scene that got cut for time. 

Hannigan then tried to explain away the viewers' negative reaction to the finale, likening series finales to bad breakups. 

Whatever, we still want the last nine years of our lives back.

The finale was not only not funny, but downright depressing. Plus showing that the characters turned out to be giant pathetic losers didn't help.

I always said... if it turns out the mom is dead - that is a huge cop out. It would be like they gave up at the last minute and said "Meh, screw it" - and that's exactly what happened.

If you watched 9 years of a show that you didn't enjoy at all that's just ****ing stupid. The finale sucking didn't ruin the enjoyment of the past episodes. Whining about TV, fer****sakes.

An example of a good show that would be remembered that way if it had ended at year two.

I just wanted to comment    

The worst thing is that the show had solid character development. By the last 2 episodes the only thing that remained changed was the Eriksen family. Everything else reverted. Robin still chose her career over love, Ted still went back to Robin and Barney was a father only because he went back to sleeping around once again thanks to Robin choosing her career over everything. Lord knows now that she's with Ted it's just a repeat of events. The creators know nothing about character development.

I thought it was wonderful. If you go back and watch from the beginning (Netflix is AWESOME!), the end makes a whole lot more sense....it was the story of how he met the kid's mother but it was Robin who was his immortal love so, yeah, it was the perfect ending.

Truth    

It was a crappy show and the idiots that kept it on the air for years deserved the disappointment that they got. By far the best COMEDY this show ever delivered.
