  • This was sloppy and rushed, I was verrry verry disappointed. A shame for such a good, steady show to end on such an awful storyline. It was barely a conclusion!

    This episode is a really poor job by the writers and it ruined not only the episode, nor the season but the entire series. To go out not with a "bang" but more an unexciting and poorly executed "thud"! It felt like half a story line and I barely noticed some of the important plot points as they were demonstrated not by scenes but by characters mentioning what happened. We only found out what happened with Lynn's music career by her conversation with the record executive at the end of the show and it felt like it had been crammed in just so that we knew what happened to Lynn. We knew nothing of what happened to Mya and Darnell adopting or having another child biologically. It seemed to lay waste to all the effort on the viewer's part in following the storyline and getting invested in the characters. The only saving grace for this episode was that the actors as usual did a "bang up" job and did the absolute best they could with the crummy script!

    This was four thumbs down for me, sad for a show which up until this episode I loved.moreless
  • I was impressed the writers put aside their usual political propaganda and wrote kind of their own tribute to the troops who are fighting for our country.

    I was very impressed when they started the debate in the classroom I thought it was going to be more of the same, that used to be on this show, like not supporting the country only because they don't support the leader. That is there right but it gets annoying when every TV show is telling you how to think about important issues. Don't get me wrong I like to hear both sides of every issue but the problem is with hollywood that they are almost all telling only one side, and usually because of their politics. I liked that they had a different view than normal that had nothing political involved it was just plain and simple a nice episode. The letter from her husband had to make many people think about their own friends and loved ones over there, and maybe felt a little better about what they are doing for us by serving their country.moreless
