Did You Know?


The scene where Marshall gets dropped off in the Minnesota airport was actually filmed in PDX. The backdrop shows the sky bridge between the parking garage and the departure terminal, and the close-in scene where Marshall talks with his brother reveals the carts that are at the PDX airport.

Just What We Hoped For
13 May 2013 | by See all my reviews

Just saw it. Special preview here.

Totally, and absolutely worth everything. To me, this is the best way a season finale should be made. Immaculate acting, plot structure.

It does leave a lot of unanswered questions. But that is the point. Season 9 will be the ending, that's without a doubt.

Marshall and Lily's departure. And of course, the Ted-Barney-Robin triangle. A lot. And more.

I know this is a vague review, but i do not want to spoil it for anyone. Just know this, it is brilliant, intelligent and touching. The viewers will not be disappointed.
