I thought this was an awesome episode. Sad to hear that it's the finale.

Do they really have auditions that bring out that many people when they have no intention of hiring anyone at all?

I like this show and want to "really" like it. But, like Michelle, it is so all over the place.

There seems to be so many story lines that just come and go with no real resolution. Like the condom last week. Big story, never resolved. (I guess it could have been Jenny's but she wasn't even dating the guy in last week's episode. Why would she have a condom?)

The characters are likable, but just a little too shallow.

I will keep watching, but I would like to see more meat.

Yeah, it is rather scattershot.

An ensemble cast like this could work, but not with SO much going on. It ends up being a jumble. I think Gilmore Girls worked for me because we met different characters at different times, and then only after we grew to understand and like the main leads, did we get into a little backstory of some of the others.

Here, it's like everything all at once. Way too much.

I still like the show, it's sweet and interesting. But I am nowhere near as caught up in it as I was in the lives of the Stars Hollow group.

Nothing says that Jenny didn't have sex with him prior to that. Her sniffing his jacket might just have been more of her trying to hang on to him, in the early stages. The kids seem to be able to come and go in the studio whenever they want, so I can see her having sex in the girl's dressing room (as that is where she is comfortable).

Everything doesn't need to be neat and tidy, as life isn't always neat and tidy.

As far as the other characters, I like that they've gotten Millie to bend a little. She was always too far over the top.

The Sepinwall post about the finale covers a lot of your issues with them not continuing storylines or following them but he reasons why that works. It is a good read.

Disappointing, but not a surprise.
