    I like happy endings. I just wish it didn't have to end, though I'd have liked where we got to this season to have been the same, just with another season coming up.

    I was kind of thinking all along, it can't all be happy endings. A bit sappy, but I didn't mind. I enjoyed its one season.

    I really enjoyed the last few episodes and think that the show basically ended on the same type note it came in on (which is a good thing). I really wish that the middle episodes hadn't been so blah, as they seemed to have dragged things down and almost had me not caring about the episodes that were left to come (now).

    It is a shame it won't be back, and I still wish it had been given a better slot to gets an audience in, but I'm glad it was given the season and wrapped up nicely.

    It might not be something I'd look for DVDs of, but I would still recommend it to those that haven't seen it.

    I *was* a big fan of this show and *was* going to miss it dearly.

    Sorkin took the easy way out, on three out of three storylines. :mad:

    Jordan was the healthiest, most lucid critical patient I've ever seen. :mad: That was quite the miraculous instant recovery. :mad:

    Happy it ended well and sad it's over.

    Some really good acting from Steven Weber (make sure to watch him - his body language and facial expressions really worked well) this week and last. Good scenes together with DL Hughley - they played off each other even better this week. Loved how pretty much all of the "missing" cast members were back even if only for 1 scene.

    The last few scenes with Matt and Danny made me realize how much I liked this show when it started. Ensemble acting, interconnected storytelling and smart and funny dialogue. And when you come right down to it -- good interaction between the 2 main characters that made you like them, clay feet and all.

    I'll be watching this one again, soon as it downloads to the PC.

    I did like the whole sense of closure yet life going on. I'd be happy to see this group again.

    I like that they brought it to a nice conclusion, if a bit sappy. I was worried they wouldn't have addressed how Tom forgot about Lucy when his brother was taken hostage but at least we saw them together at the end.

    Ah well, alls well that ends well.

    Jack: "I kept my word."

    Who knew that it was going to be Wes that was the weasel, and Jack took the fall for Wes, so Matt and Danny wouldn't lose respect for their hero? I didn't!

    Jack has certainly been my favorite character throughout the series.

    And the restrictions in place that were supposed to prevent Danny from holding Baby Girl McDeere? Maybe when the doctor pulled Danny aside to say "we have to talk" he told Danny everything is now hunky-dory.

    I thought this show basically proved that it wasn't worth saving with the last 4 episodes, and nailed its own coffin with this truly abysmal finale. I did not think it had a single redeeming quality. Garbage. I truly hated this episode. Overbearing music, sappy storylines, and boring plot. All of the plots were conveniently resolved at the last minute. Most of the actions by the characters did not really make that much sense. At least the doctor seemed less ridiculous this time around.

    Several times in this episode I wondered whether it was intentionally bad as a final F U to the network, or if it is what the creators thought was actually good television.

    What a waste of a good show.

    I will miss the fun of earlier episodes, but I am having a hard time mourning this show after so many lame episodes in a row. I swear this show was at one point about making a television show and not about politics and soap opera love stories. Am I imagining it?

    Blech.

    Well, if you wanna get nitpicky...there's no way they would have let a mother who is septic hold an premature baby. But it's not a medical documentary.

    But chin up folks. Next week we get the premiere of "The Singing Bee"! :rolleyes:

    I really enjoyed last night. And I'm terribly sad that it couldn't hang, for whatever reason.

    Yeah, that was weird. At first, I thought they had jumped forward in time. Then, I thought it was a dream sequence.

    My hunch is that most of the last few minutes of the show was redone to close out the series. It felt very artificial and tacked-on. On the other hand, I bet there's not much better they could have done in terms of converting a season finale to a series finale at the last minute, and if that's really what they did, I at least appreciate the effort.

    Saving the finale for tonight, so I haven't watched yet ... but thought from the guide it was a nice touch that they named the episode "What kind of Day it has Been"... which was the name of the final episode of season one of the West Wing as well.

    Will miss this show.

    I'm so glad they tied everything up neat and tidy. This was an awesome season. It will be missed.

    It's because Danny finally got on his knees and prayed to God. :p

    I just started wondering something. Matt Albie is supposed to be Aaron Sorkin and Harriet is supposed to be Kristin Chenowith.

    So, the Comedia Dell'Arte girl in the cast, the one who is Matt's f-buddy... who in real life does she represent?

    That doctor is in the latest McDonald's commercial, the one with the website that's going to be "bigger than the Big Mac". He's not a doctor, he's just chomping on a Big Mac hehe.

    What did the baby's name end up being? I couldn't understand what Jordan meant by "read what you just signed."
