I already got frustrated once for stretching the storyline way too much; season came and went and the Mother was nowhere in sight. And then it turned out that the whole point of meeting her was to have someone to keep Ted company until Robin finally becomes available. I find the thought that a grown-up man is telling using the excuse of telling a story to his children on "how he met their mother" to tell them how much he has been being in love with a friend of his for decades thoroughly tasteless.They had to learn about every single girl Aunt Barney slept with, they have to know that Barney's daughter (who they must know very well) is a fruit if a one-night stand, they have to know about all the father's past relationships in excruciating detail -- hard to see why it is necessary if everything goes back to Robin.
Beyond that, the series is much less thoroughly written than the early ones. Storylines are sometimes forced, it is less funny and less clever. If you have gotten this far, eventually you will come round to it, but there is no need to rush.
So why lose a star ? the whole series pretty much dealt with Barney and Robin's wedding, which could have compacted a few episodes to have Ted's long awaited love have some focus. The finale felt rushed and the with the original ending, felt cheated too, which is why the alternate ending makes a more satisfying conclusion.
I managed to not find out the ending to this show until I watched the DVD – and I must say. I was very disappointed by the ending.
A rundown of the season:
Marshall is not in it as much as past series as Jason Segal originally said that he would bow out after the eighth season. However he came back for all episodes of the ninth season, but in less screen time, finally being reunited with the gang towards the end. So a majority of his season is in on a bus and a rental car trying to get to the wedding on time. Due to this the dynamic of the season is thrown off as, like Friends (as this show is often likened too) the best scenes are when the whole group is together.
The season as a whole is ok, but by no means the best of the 9 year run. I have always found that the casting of the main cast were spot on – apart from Ted. This is just my opinion as I cannot imagine any other actor playing Barney, Robin, Lilly or Marshall – but I could imagine other actors playing Ted and the show still being the same. This said – the interaction between Ted and “the Mother” (later introduced as the character Tracy McConnell) is great. They are both very similar characters and their shared screen time (in flash forwards) is underused as this does show what a sweet couple they are and how much they are meant to be together.
Another thing that I did like is that they did round off minor characters stories such as The Captain, Scooter, Ranji, Carl the bar man and some of ted’s old flames.

The ending (I won't spoil it) completely rips apart what the entire final season and the majority of the final three seasons had been building towards so they can shoe-horn a finale in that doesn't work in any way, shape or form and in 30 minutes it performs a 180 on multiple storylines that had been built and satisfactorily concluded years before. It's almost insulting.
Don't buy it. Don't encourage this type of god-awful programming to be made.
