"I have been a HIMYM fan since day one, and I still think the series’ first episode is one of the best comedy pilots I’ve ever seen. I love this show. I have been devoted to this show. I have stuck with this show through these last few garbage-y seasons, even as the series has squandered my affection, out of a combination of loyalty, pathetic optimism, curiosity, and the conviction that, everything else aside, the show was designed to have a happy ending. It’s in the title and everything! I have spent nine stupid years of my stupid life waiting for this happy ending, and if it turns out to be a tragic ending about a hearty widower, there is no way for me to get a refund on all this."
How many times can I repeat my refrain? I’m so glad I stopped watching this show a few seasons ago.
