commented on Forget The Last Nine Years: How the How I Met Your Mother Finale Pissed Off The World
I read the finale synopsis this morning and felt SO GOOD about giving up on this show two seasons ago. The first three or four seasons are still rock-solid by-the-numbers sitcom fare with a mostly great cast (I agree with you on Ted, but Robin is far more annoying to me). It was never anything more than that to me, so when it ceased making me laugh and instead made me angry that they were going back to the same well over and over and over...well, that's when I gave up.
The bigger problem with finales is that the show is usually far past its prime by the time the network/creator decides to end it, usually due to declining ratings or actors wanting to move on. It's always a business decision, never a creative one. It's rare for a show to go out on top, let alone have a satisfying end.

Love Hari, but his album was a little disappointing largely because it's filled with jokes that he's been doing for years now. Looking forward to hearing some new material from him for sure. The issues he covers lend well to constant development of new material.

This has happened five times!? Not to get all victim-blamey, but I'd think after the first time, they'd have immediately gone to the closest hardware store and bought a padlock.

Fuck this guy. He's gonna point and laugh at others' fashion choices while wearing a plain black t-shirt and blue jeans (probably every single day, no less)? And make fun of people for being old or overweight, all while being cripplingly unfunny? Someone's got more than their share of inferiority complexes.
