Apr 2 2014 - 1:11pm

The How I Met Your Mother [1] series finale was a polarizing one [2], and the cast and crew know it. Josh Radnor [3] (aka Ted Mosby) is the latest star to speak out about the show's ending. Creators Craig Thomas and Carter Bays also commented on the finale, while Neil Patrick Harris [4] took to Twitter to thank fans for their support. Take a look at what they had to say!

Creators Craig Thomas and Carter Bays

Creator Craig Thomas tweeted the day after the finale [5], "We did a finale about life's twists and turns and that is not always what happens . . . but THANKS!" He continued [6], "Seriously — no matter what you thought of tonight, THANK YOU . . . you were with us. We love you." Cocreator Carter Bays added [7], "This is the best job I've ever had, and one summer in college I was a line cook at Hooters. True story. #HIMYM"

Josh Radnor

Josh Radnor spoke with Vulture [8] about the finale:

"There are so many opinions floating around. There have always been people that thought that Barney and Robin were perfect together. There have always been people that thought it didn't make sense. There are people that wanted Ted and Robin to be together. There are people that thought they didn't work together. So I just feel that part of the divisiveness and part of the anger and also part of the enthusiasm all speaks to something really great. . . . I think if you're going do something new and bold and daring, you're going to upset some people, and you're gonna thrill others. I think it's better to do that than try to have some homogenized, safe ending that was never really what the show was. The show was always bold and daring and questioning assumptions and leading you where you thought you didn't want to go but realized, at the end, that that was where you belonged."

Neil Patrick Harris

"To all who helped create #HIMYM, well played. To all who enjoyed watching it, I respectfully request the highest of fives. #thanks," tweeted Neil Patrick Harris [9].
