How I Met Your Mother: How It Broke the Mold — and How Will It All End?

How I Met Your Mother

Like the year in which Future Ted is recounting his stories, How I Met Your Mother may have been a little ahead of its time.

"I think [that] the best format for this series is ultimately as a download or a DVD — a binge-watch," co-creator and executive producer Carter Bays tells TVGuide.com.

"I think we should've been on Netflix," co-creator and executive producer Craig Thomas quips. "Maybe people wouldn't have been as upset at us. We could've been the first House of Cards!"

On Monday, it will end its nine-year run having carved out its own unique piece of sitcom history.

On the last day of production of How I Met Your Mother, Alyson Hannigan and co-creator and executive producer Carter Bays implored fans to get #PamFryman trending on Twitter.

"I am the one person who is not on Twitter. At one point, I got a text from one of my kids that said, 'Mom, you're trending,'" Pamela Fryman, the show's longtime director, tells TVGuide.com. "I was like, 'Is that good?' Carter, when he found out, started hashtagging me up. It was so funny. I was like, 'Guys, I'm trending!'"

Please share something Game of Thrones-related. — Rosie 
HBO has already foreshadowed the royal wedding between King Joffrey and Margaery Tyrell this season, but fear not: These nuptials will be far more civilized than last year's traumatic Red Wedding. Still, there will be barbs thrown thanks to those quarrelsome Lannisters. In particular, Cersei doesn't respect the arranged marriage — or her new queen — and will make quick work of publicly undermining her authority.

Please tell me The Mother is not dead on How I Met Your Mother. — Dina 
I can't do that, but I can let series director Pam Fryman tell you that none of the theories floating around online about the ending or The Mother's fate have hit the nail on the head. "People are so sure and they have such an opinion about what they think is going to happen, but nobody is 100 percent right," she says. "I think people will be happy with the way this plays out. It's a great ending." Surely no one would be happy with The Mother dying, right?
