Does “HIMYM” finale ruin the entire series?
No way, says  Todd VanDerWerff, who adds: “Any TV show worth its salt understands that the age of endless Internet chatter about TV series overvalues endings in the grand scheme of things. The pleasure – particularly in a sitcom – is all in the journey….Though the finale can”t invalidate the pleasures of the show”s run-particularly its first four years and substantial portions of seasons five through seven-it does create the impression that the series” creators were telling a vastly different story from the one they seemed to be, and it provides the ending for a story that much of the audience wasn”t aware it was even supposed to be watching. Does it ruin the show? No. But it”ll make it play more strangely in syndicated reruns.” PLUS: Fans vented their anger on Twitter, how to cope with a disappointing finale, Cobie Smulders posts her view of the final scene, what do the kids look like now?, the ending was perfect if you stopped watching the show, Lily and Marshall were TV's best couple, TV finales will inevitably disappoint, and this finale shouldn't affect “How I Met Your Dad.”
