TV Analysis: Is the “How I Met Your Mother” ending inexcusable?

After nine long seasons, “How I Met Your Mother” has inevitably found its ending and many fans aren’t satisfied. There are also fans defending the series finale. Vulture was able to put together this impressive list of critics who were torn between loving and hating the finale.
