“Kids, I’m going to tell you an incredible story. The story of how I met your mother.”
Through nine eventful, heartfelt, and humorous seasons, fans of CBS’s popular show How I Met Your Mother have followed the life of Ted Mosby and his unique group of friends on his search to find the love of his life. The show aired for nine years, beginning September 19th, 2005 and ending March 31st, 2014. Some of Romeo’s students found it near impossible to not become engrossed in the plot and characters. Drew Pointe (12) has been watching HIMYM for four years.
“You just start to feel really connected to the characters, and it’s a story I can relate with,” Pointe said.
With a show as popular as this, there were extremely high expectations for the finale. The creators had numerous loose ends to tie up before the show came to an end. With ending relationships, a newborn baby, and an unexpected plot twist, the hour long finale kept the audience on their toes the entire time.
“Overall the ending was heartbreaking but not unexpected,” Pointe said. “It gives hope to those who have lost love and shows there are so many different forms of love – It was kind of like tranquility.”
