‘How I Met... finale was a slap in the face’
Hannigan (above), who played Lily Aldrin on the hit American sitcom How I Met Your Mother, says that the climax of the show was like a slap in the face for its ardent fans..
The show went on for nine seasons from 2005 to 2014. The 43-year-old actor says that the hourlong finale was cut down significantly during the editing process, resulting in the abrupt ending, reported Digital Spy.
“It seemed too quick. Obviously it was a tearjerker, but with all the stuff that got cut out it was too fast... The audience needed time to process the information, instead of having it slap them in the face,” says Alyson.
The actor also believes that Barney (Neil Patrick Harris) and Robin (Cobie Smulders) should not have gotten married in the show. “I liked Barney and Robin. But in my heart, I always wanted her with Ted (Josh Radnor). I just feel (Barney and Robin) shouldn’t have gotten married,” she says.
