      Show went from good to Bad

      I’ve watched How I Met Your Mother for its full 9 season run. The series started off Great!! To say the final season was a disappointment. Since much of what happens in Season 8, leads up to the final season, I thought I would review the last 2 seasons here. I like to break my ratings down into three categories: 5 –> 7 –> 11 = ROY: Really Bad -> Poor 3 = G (Green): Okay 8 –> 16 –> 64 = BIV: Good -> Great As I watched the series finale season, my rating went from Green to a Bright RED. Unfortunately, series finales seem to be a place for TV show producers to flex their Power (13) and make dedicated fans wish they hadn’t wasted so much time (makes my face turn RED! when this happens). The entire final season was drawn out with Barney & Robin’s Wedding. Even the kids admitted his story was full of crap11, since it was all about Robin in the end. It’s obvious the show creators intended11 to do this from the start. The filming of Ted’s kids was obviously done at the beginning of the show (the story is told in real time and the kids don’t age). From the start, the show producers intended to screw with us (5). Sorry, there are NO spoilers here. Hopefully I’ve saved you the trouble of watching the final season (and the last couple). According to the above scale, I give the final season a 5 (Bright Red). I would give season eight a 7 (Orange - I have to downgrade it based on the ending). The first 5 or 6 seasons were pretty good, then it went downhill fast. To summarize my rating for the series: The first two seasons: 16 (Very Good) The middle seasons: 3 (Okay) Seasons Seven & Eight: 11 (Not so good) Final Season: 5 (Waste of Time – Blazing Red). The series went from very good8 to very bad 5. This is typical of a series that goes on for too long. Too bad (16 -> 8 -> 3 -> 13 -> 11 -> 7 -> 5).

      I was a fan of the show, but I have to admit the last 3 seasons were just so-so... And the final season, the 8th Season... It was not funny... And the alternate ending... Way better than the one everyone got mad about... I would only recommend this DVD set IF, and that's a big if, you are a fan of this show. If not, stay with the first 5 seasons, maybe the sixth one. The last two seasons are way below par.

      Its been leading up to this for seven years now met the mother. You;ll have to wait one more season to see how it all comes together but Ted and the crew delivery another great season of comedy don't miss out on this one.

      How I Met Your Mother may have fallen off a bit compared to its first few seasons, but even 8 seasons deep this proves to be a strong, character based sitcom with plenty of moments the audience cares about.

      I absolutely love this show! I didn't start watching it until last summer, but I was hooked quickly. I have watched it so much on TV that I knew I needed to own the show on DVD - definitely a great buy!

      Still funny, but not as funny as the first seasons

      The first few seasons of the series were hilarious, but it has seemed to go a little bit down hill. This season has some funny episodes, but also some that are boring and couldn't keep my attention.
