  • So I came across this quote by an American psychiatrist by the name of Morgan Scott Peck and it goes like this

  • I can't help but totally agree on this and I think anyone who is old enough must have had

  • Experiences that edified them about the complexities of life. A revelation that sometimes life does not make sense

  • Now you know what else reminds this to me

  • This

  • Created by Carter Bays and grant Thomas. This show is beautiful. It is romantic. It is funny as hell and also very intimate

  • I don't think I'll be able to express my love towards it with just words. Oh wait, there is one

  • Legendre

  • The show was much more than friends or families or love and relationships

  • It certainly was much more than how he meets the mother. All in all it was about life in its complications

  • which is pretty obvious as the whole structure of the show and each episode is about this middle-aged man

  • teaching his kids some valuable lessons

  • He learned along the way that being said the show is filled with life lessons

  • and this kind of storytelling gives the writers and the directors much room for being both funny and emotional

  • Number of times we got episodes which are so painstakingly

  • funny like the pineapple incident or slap bet

  • and the other times we got episodes that showed us the moments of

  • Misery and despair at losing someone or something like bad news or the symphony of illumination

  • The point is How I Met Your Mother is not a joke machine of the Big Bang Theory and friends

  • It is much more intricate than that

  • The writers felt a responsibility to show not just the goodie good stuff

  • But also two gloomy parts of life by going the distance breaking all the conventional rules of a traditional sitcom

  • And yes about that

  • People take no time in comparing How I Met Your Mother with friends or Big Bang Theory just like I did there

  • I'm such a hypocrite but honestly How I Met Your Mother is very very different from these two both in the

  • designing principle of the show but also in the Technicalities

  • Now bear with me when I say that How I Met Your Mother is not a better sitcom than friends

  • Because it's not just a sitcom while a sitcom is a situational comedy which it is

  • But it has tons of elements of romantic comedy and drama thrown in between which makes it so much different

  • To completely understand this difference watch the pilot from all three of these shows and you'll notice one big

  • Difference in how I Met Your Mother and that is the extreme use of editing which is where the rhythm of the show comes from

  • The timeline is always going places.

  • I mean it's crazy. But this also makes the show much more dynamic than the others

  • Also, you cannot follow the show without visuals because a lot of the jokes comes from the editing unlike Big Bang Theory or friends and

  • Because of this editing the show is also not shot in a traditional way in front of a studio audience with one camera setup

  • So in a way how I Met Your Mother creates something

  • different in a familiar form and I am thankful for that because we got some great episodes like The Time Traveller's

  • To subway wars or the play book just to name a few which wouldn't have been possible without the editing

  • Now you may be thinking well

  • This dude is talking about time-traveling and weird shit while claiming that How I Met Your Mother is about life

  • Well, then you don't understand what the show is trying to tell you

  • and that Is

  • This is the underlying reoccurring theme of the show

  • and this is what I meant when I said that How I Met Your Mother is about life as it is and

  • This is the truth that there is no certainty in life. There is no formula to live anything can happen at any time

  • Now this isn't true just for the tragic moments the indifferent ubiquitous uncertainty of life can also bring happiness

  • Let's take Barney a womanizer who uses plays from his playbook to sleep with women , who knew he could ever fall in love with Robin ?

  • like seriously Robin and love ?

  • Or who knew that Ted's stupid drunk decisions will bring him close to the love of his life

  • But what sticks are the heart-rending moments like why is Ted left at the altar

  • Even though he did absolutely nothing wrong or why Marshalls dad died or Tracy's boyfriend died

  • There is no story logic behind this but life logic because these things happen in life people just don't want to talk about it

  • This is also reflected on the characters apart from being well developed. These characters are also

  • Unpredictable, there is no hard logic as we see some things about these characters that never change

  • But sometimes they do and the show never focuses on anything

  • exclusive which makes them seem all do real it is as if we're watching real people going through a part of their life and

  • In life some people change some people don't. In life , there is no perfect script things always change

  • sometimes the universe will stand out of its way to help you while the other times it very

  • Unsympathetically conspires against you and the show kept this as an underlying principle right from the beginning up till the finale.

  • Oh Yes, let's talk about the finale the episode "last forever" got aired on 31st

  • March of 2014 and people went absolutely crazy on this

  • The ending was extremely polarizing either someone absolutely loved it or someone absolutely hated it which happened to be the majority in this case

  • Now there have been many shows before How I Met Your Mother with a touching

  • Twisty ending and they weren't received by the audience as badly as this so why now

  • Did we started hating such endings? It's simple. Yep, this motherfufuuu. I'm just kidding

  • I love this show .You see friends was the greatest success for the sitcom genre and when it ended

  • Civilization was at the point of extinction people were like, oh my god. There's no point living anymore

  • The thing is people needed another show Naay another friends and next year

  • They got it, which even helped the show to gain more viewers over time, but there was one problem

  • It wasn't Friends. Now that is the worst thing that can happen to a show

  • so in a way friends assisted the show but also hindered it

  • people had this crazy expectations that the show will follow the same formula as friends a.k.a. the happily ever after

  • which it didn't , but expectations aren't bad as a matter of fact the show teased us with this happily ever after with

  • everything they got. I mean seriously the name of the show is How I Met Your Mother which means he will

  • eventually meet the mother which means that it is going to be a happy ending. And the same is with Barney and Robin

  • we saw the relationship grow up from season to season to the point that we know they absolutely love each other

  • and everything was perfect

  • But then life happened as it always does and this is what the show was all about

  • About the saddest moments juxtaposed with the happiest ones

  • Think about it every great moment is either preceded or followed by a tragic one

  • Remember the finale of the first season the point the show made it clear. What's it about

  • It is not about the mother. It is about all the other things the sweet and sour life has to offer

  • This has been the case throughout the show and thus the finale and why shouldn't it be why should a finale

  • deviate from the ultimate theme of the show instead

  • It should confirm it and that's what how might your mother does

  • It tells us that life has chapters and at last there is always an ending

  • But the ending isn't something you thought about or something

  • you plan on doing some things are not in your control and it's not something most of us like to face, but for

  • Everything beautiful the ending will always be the worst

  • Like their friendship or the marriage or the love story or even the show?

  • But does that mean that all of this didn't matter?

  • You see part of the premise of the show was that "Does something has to last forever to have value ?"

  • So the love, the special moments, the memories between these people don't matter because now it's gone

  • No, I think that it's such a depressing way to think

  • I feel that there is something magical about two people coming together to take a shot at it

  • Against all the odds let alone Barney and Robin

  • They got the hints along the way that it is gonna be hard for this marriage to survive

  • But that's the best part

  • They still got married because they love each other so much so that they're willing to ignore everything

  • and that is worth some value even if it didn't work out

  • The same as with Ted even after Tracy got sick

  • He was still thankful for meeting this beautiful woman and spending his life with her and that is the beauty of love

  • I'm sorry if it sounds like a cliche, but that's Truth, life is a cliche

  • but that is not the greatest lesson How I Met Your Mother gave me the greatest lesson comes from Ted and that is

  • Life is a beautiful mess .Soon you'll find your place that will make you feel like it's all fine and in control

  • But you'll have to make the most out of it because sooner or later that will end and it will be painful as hell

  • But don't you worry, your story is never actually finished every ending leads to a new beginning with new discoveries and new hope

  • so go out there find your place have some Frank's go get your girl because

  • Time will catch up with you sooner than you think but trust me when I say that it's never too late to start

  • At the end I want to say that yes How I met your mother ended in a more adult way

  • But it's safe to admit that all of us learned an important lesson even if some of us didn't like it

  • I think we should be grateful that we got a show like this out there a show that goes an extra mile trying to teach us

  • Something valuable and truthful about life which it does and that was the show's and general idea.

  • Hey, what's up guys, I'm very happy. I finished this video. I really really love this show

  • But this video took a lot of my time

  • So if you enjoyed watching, please like and share this video that will help me a lot

  • I'm really tired and hungry for a sandwich if you know what I mean, I'm just kidding. Peace !
