    You are missing that the first and last eps were actually long. I had just looked at the PBS schedule before my post and assumed they were doubled. The first and last were long at 69 min, 6 at 49 min, and the 92 min Christmas ep.

    The schedule on PBS.org has 8 eps, 8 weeks listed: Jan 5, 12, 19, 26 and Feb 2, 9, 16, 23. I am not sure how the editing works out since the first PBS ep was clearly a lot longer than 69 min.

    You sure are right and I'm wrong. Season felt terribly short again. But the dates match! I guess I'm just getting old and time flies!

    Sigh. Too soon over! (und too late schmart)

    not over soon enough for me. This season was by far the worse of the series.

    Interesting. I was thinking it keeps getting better every season.

    Well this thread isn't the place to discuss it, but it sucked. :)

    sweet home, al
    i'm torn over the season 4 finale - should i be disappointed there was no single cliffhanger, generally settled within 10-15 minutes into next season's premier? not really. it left me feeling kind of "blah" - ok, but no crescendo to a climactic scene that makes me curious and wanting more, waiting for next season. right back to where i started, torn.

    i enjoyed shirley macclaine's re-appearance, and the addition of paul giamatti's character. several loose ends were neatly tied, others left dangling, so there's a lot to look forward next season:
    the reference to "brownshirts" involved with michael's disappearance, edith arranging her child to be close, she and tom settling into their places in the family, mary and charles inching closer together, molesley blocking thomas' snooping...
    i will trust the writer's won't disappoint for long...if they do, it's off to syndication after next season's finale.
