Over at TV.com, I had a lot to say about How I Met Your Mother

One of the most important things to remember when watching How I Met Your Mother is that it’s a lesson in storytelling, in which time is not linear and the narrator is not always reliable. But it’s also important to remember that this is a series of stories, snapshots of Ted’s life leading up to and after his meeting the Mother. But Ted’s life didn’t begin or end when he met the Mother. He continued living his life, albeit a different chapter than the one he was leading prior to their meeting, but it was still his life. Ted’s once harmless stories might eventually take on a new light as the years go on, but they are still the stories that define him. And even if we’re heading to an ending in which the Mother is no longer living, Ted’s life isn’t going to stop anymore than ours will once the series signs off for good at the end of the month. 

The Mother had a point when she told Ted not to live only in his stories and to keep moving forward with his life, because when we dwell on the past, our lives have the tendency to stall. But there’s also a good argument to be made for telling these stories. We tell them because they’re important to us, and we want to remember them. We tell them because we want other people to know the love and joy they brought into our lives. We tell them because they are what define us. So while I think it’s important to remember to live life and make new stories, I don’t think we should ever forget the past either. And I have no intention of forgetting the journey that How I Met Your Mother has taken me on over the last nine years. Some of the stories were good. Some were bad. But all of them were worthwhile.

Dylan O’Brien, please get out of my brain during non-Teen Wolf hours. It’s getting really hard to pretend I’m normal.

Scott, you’re my brother.
