    Yeah, the primary reason it was kept going with the upcoming shows was just to get it to enough episodes to make it attractive for syndication. Beyond that, though, Sony Pictures Television doesn't give a shit about it.

    But it's now How I Met, Dated, and Proposed to Your Mother, you know? There are some blanks just better filled in by the viewers' respective imaginations. I mean, if they start mapping out every minute detail for the viewer, where does it end? What's a natural stopping point for the arc began in the pilot if its not the one that the creators established themselves? Is it the proposal? Then people will want to see the wedding. The ceremony? Then people will want to see the kids. The delivery? Then people will want to see how Ted built his house. It's a slippery slope, and it betrays what was initially set out to do. That's my take, anyways.

    I'd actually like to see the series end with Ted Mosby being investigated by Child Protective Series for exposing his children to the details of all of his sexual exploits. Now that would be a finale!

    Comedy central has already bought the rights to show the first three seasons after the fourth season right?

I wouldn't want to have to try doing it! Because you're always - without fail - going to disappoint someone.

    With HIMYM, ideally, from a fans perspective, they should have let it come to it's natural conclusion. To do that, it should have ended by now. It's no longer organic, like it was at first. And it's leaving a bad taste in the mouth of viewers.
    I do agree it's getting less organic.. though I don't think it has fallen into the point that it can no longer reach a natural-esk conclusion

    Yeah, they're going to start airing the show in 2013. By then the show should be kaput, so I would imagine they'll be running the whole shebang.
