I did watch every episode of How I Met Your Mother. At one point, I started writing “weecaps” of the show for Television Without Pity (RIP) of the third season.

And then I kept watching. And watching.

It came around again when I started writing for Previously.tv where I covered this last season.

You can read my specific thoughts on the finale in this write-up. I know it’s silly to get worked up about a TV show’s ending. I think it’s less anger than sadness at a missed opportunity to wrap things up in a truly great way. Because that was not it.

We don’t talk a lot about Anything But Mini-Me’s origins, but believe me when I say it’s all mapped out and quite detailed. And not as disappointing as Ted Mosby’s final fate.
