As comical as How I Met Your Mother was, the series was at its finest during this special Thanksgiving-themed installment. Barney lost a bet and was to receive one of the five slaps he earned as a result. Poor Barney was on edge the entire time, and it all came to a head at dinner, while other storylines simmered to the surface. We miss this hilarious series.
The final season was all about the wedding of Barney and Robin, a great couple in the eyes of HIMYM fans. The conclusion, however, focused on Robin getting back together with Ted in a bizarre twist that made little sense.
The whole show was about a dude telling his kids how he met their mother. After meeting the said mother, she was killed off in the series finale. In essence, the previous nine seasons were a waste. Even Barney and Robin didn't get their happy ending. AWFUL.
