    Which means, early 30s when the series started. Not a kids voice by that point.

    But Saget sounded notably older, which was my point.

    If the voice-over voice was the same as Ted's it would be hard to buy the voice over happening 25 years in the future.

    It only took rebooting several characters, sweeping a death under the rug, numerous wigs, a baby birth cliche, a wedding cliche, and a few other convolutions to get an ending nobody wanted.

    I'm not sure if I hated it. Definitely didn't like the whole Barney/robin divorce. But if it was done in some other way I really wouldn't care if Ted and robin ended up together.

    My wife, who i never told about the mothers death rumor, didn't like it at all. Not that that should matter to anyone here but she thought it wasn't a very good way to end the show.

    And she also didn't like the Barney/robin divorce.

    I'd say it's the ending that a LOT of people wanted.....for about 2 seasons, which is when the concept for the ending was probably conceived. By this time in the series, most of us have moved on from Ted and Robin. Sepinwall's article hits the nail on the head. The writers got trapped in their concept, one that just didn't play as well 7 or 8 years down the road. (and I have always stood in the camp that the revelation of the Mother mattered, but once revealed, then all bets were off).

    Also, what's wrong with a sappy Hollywood ending anyway? I really don't get why that's such a bad thing? It works for a show like this.

    Loved this bit from fashion bloggers Tom & Lorenzo (posted with some pics of Cobie Smulders).

    They didn't actually say the mother died, just that she's been "gone for 6 years".
    Maybe she went to live on a farm? ;)

    I wonder if there will be any appearances from our old gang. Is the show being set in NYC?

    It was wild how NPH and Jason Seigel looked soooo much younger than they do now, while Radnor and Smulders looked almost exactly like they do now.

    Alyson Hannigan was the only one who appeared to age an appropriate amount. :)

    Does anyone know if there was a significance to the scene where Marshall leans back to the group sitting in the booth behind him and says that a lot of cool things happened at the bar?

    Seemed strangely out of place, with no purpose. Wondering if I either missed something, or if it was some kind of inside joke.
