   “How I Met Your Mother” (HIMYM) was released on Sept 19, 2005 on the network CBS. This series was about a father, Ted Mosley, telling his kids the very long story of how he met their mother. Each episode is look back on Ted’s life pre-marriage, marriage to the children’s mother at least. Other characters include his best friends, Robin, Barney, Lily, and Marshall. This series has been removed as of November 13, 2017 from Netflix. The contract was not renewed after HULU started a contract with HIMYM. Netflix is known for exclusively having contracts with T.V. series. We have decided to review the much loved series in mourning of it leaving Netflix.

  This series has a total of nine seasons and 208 episodes. “How I Met Your Mother,” ended back in 2014, however, it has been available for live streaming on Netflix since then. Personally have binge watched all nine seasons easily. The show is comical, along with heartwarming moments that tug at the heartstrings. Usually after nine seasons of waiting for something to be revealed the audience gets bored, but this did not happen.

  Throughout the series we were also left guessing if this woman, this stranger that Ted met would be the one.  However, we were also disappointed when the women would walk out the door or Barney would steal her. Ted was usually left heartbroken, but he never gave up hope. Neither did we. Something that we did know and so did the rest of the audience knew was there was going to an end. No one knew who or when, but there would be an end. Somehow the writers managed to keep the audience interested in that end for nine seasons.

  Ted was not the only quirky character. There was also the long time couple of Marshall and Lily. They might have been married for many seasons, but they were never an old married couple. Robin was Lily’s best friend and Ted’s friend/true love for most of the series. Robin and Ted start off as dating until he tells her he loves on her on the first date. That was far from the end of the that relationship. Throughout the series they remain friends and a couple times rekindle the relationship. Barney is the bachelor of the group known for his “plays” to get women to date him. Each character has their own loveable personality that makes them important to the storyline.

  Personally, when we found out that “How I Met Your Mother” was going off Netflix, we started to watch it over again. we needed the last full watch in order. This was upsetting in the Netflix world but they also took off other popular shows. Netflix is changing all around. In a few years, They are planning to have their program only be shows that they have made. This will definitely make people subscribed to Netflix and find a better program to stream shows.
