With the 5th episode of How I Met Your Mother – Season 7 airing tonight in the US, we’ve already watched 140 episodes of the show and we still don’t seem to be any closer to discovering the identity of the mother.
I started watching the show and only a few episodes later I fell in love with all the characters. The end of every season would make me sad because the desperation to watch the next episode was always unbearable. With the apparently limited set-up I didn’t expect it to last much longer than three seasons. However now that we’re in the 7th year, its about time Ted Mosby told his kids how he met their mother, and the show can move on.
I am not saying this because I dont like the show anymore, I still love it – who would not want watch Barney Stinson with his awesomeness, Ted with his failed relationships, Robin struggling with her career, and Marshall and Lilly with all the problems of an apparently perfect married life. These are the things that make HIMYM so interesting and wonderful; however the long wait for big reveal is weighing down the whole show.
I came across this comic strip cartoon in one of the fan pages from a famous duo who make funny cartoons and comic strips. This strip, from Pakistan, shows just how popular the show is in every part of the world, however most people share my feelings on the matter.
This gave me a big laugh, as I recall how much I’ve changed and so much has happened in between the seven years of the show. Even the kids in the show have grown up (in the same couch) waiting to discover how their dad met their mother. As much as am interested in finding out how Ted found his soul mate, that isn’t the reason everyone watches the show. Just because the secret is revealed doesn’t mean the show has to end. That’s all up to the writers, and with a renewal up to the end of season 8 maybe they should be looking to finish Ted’s story.
How I Met Your Mother also is the type of a TV show which became an inspiration for movie directors when they used the same concept for the 2008 Ryan Reynolds movie Definitely, Maybe. The good thing about the movie was it lasted for no more than 112 minutes plus a happy ending.
Do you think Ted should tell his kids about their mother now? Would you rather we never saw her at all? Share your opinions the comments section below.
