Fans Desperately Recutting Disappointing How I Met Your Mother Ending

It seems that most fans were let down by How I Met Your Mother‘s recent finale. Without giving anything away, suffice to say the ending changed a huge chunk of the story, and pretty much in five minutes made much of the last ten years useless. It’s unfortunate because this wasn’t a Dexter-type slow decline where everyone knew the ending would be bad given how terrible the show had gotten. Rather, this was an abrupt twist that really wasn’t supported by what came before it.

As such, fans have now taken it upon themselves to recut the last few minutes of the episode into something more to their liking. As it turns out, it’s not all that hard to “fix” what went wrong, and many are already saying they prefer these similarly themed alternate endings to the real one. One of the most popular ones is above, and you can check it out for yourself if you really hated the real one, or if you’re just curious.

What do you think? Is this the way HIMYM should have ended?
