  • This is the episode all the viewers, including me, have been waiting for since the beginning of the series.

    The series itself is great and original. I'm was sad and glad that they decided to end the series early in eight episodes. Sad because I liked the show and wanted more of it. Glad because it wouldn't be dragged on uselessly like I've seen other shows do.



    I expected more out of the series finale. You don't find out what really happened to Eddie til the last half minute of the show. Even then they leave you hanging for a second season that's not going to happen.



    Good series with a careless finale.moreless

    I like Hidden Palms because it takes place at the beach.



    Second Chances.



    This episode is one of my favorites. It's classic and fun. If I were in Hidden Palms, I will swim. Mom and I watched it in a hotel called Americana. This episods is great and fun for all ages. This reminds me of Buffy The Vampire Slayer. Want to watch it?

    WATCH IT!
  • It's finally revealed who killed Eddie, or is it?

    8.7
    This was an OK season finale but not a good series finale because the ending was once again a cliff-hanger. Now that a second season seems highly unlikely, that is just not a good way to end this series. The viewers want closure, in some form or the other and they didn't get it with this cliff-hanger.



    The final 30 minutes of the episode were great as a prelude to a second season. The way Liza so easily believed that Maria Nolan killed herself (when she had so much trouble accepting that Eddie did) seemed an easy way out to provide some closure but if the writers had really wanted that, they wouldn't have added the final scene of Johnny watching the movie clip. That was a great scene too, just too bad we will probably never know what was going to happen in season 2.moreless
  • Watchable but unoriginal.

    6.5
    The season/series finale was watchable. It did have some interesting parts. But the thing is that everything happened too fast. I know that they only had these eight episodes and that pretty much sucks. The show would have been so much better if they had got at least 15 episodes. I would have wanted more story around everything that happened. And I definatly would have wanted a longer wait before Greta and Johnny hooked up. It just didn't feel right. Anyway, the show is also a bit unoriginal but that I can deal with. Many tv-shows are unoriginal these days, so that's not a big problem for me. I think that this show should get a second season so that they can show us what they can do with a lot more episodes.moreless
  • In the series finale will Eddie's murderer finally be revealed?. And what about the other mysteries of Palm Springs? Will Nikki take Cliff back? Will Johnny's mom stay with Bob? Will Skip become a dad for Greta? And will Jessie Joe finally belong?moreless

    Awnsers in order of questions asked in the summary: No, Yes, Yes, Yes, Yes.

    The last four could all be awnsered before you'd ever see this episode. The first one is so disapointing I actually laughed during the episode. Never, ever, ever did I think I would see this kind of television in this age. Wow, I mean, they should get rewarded for having the worst episode I have ever seen. And this is me being rational. The acting was below anything you can imagen. I mean the scene where Johnny watches how Eddie died was hilarious. The acting of Eddie/Eddie's mom and Skip was so bad it made "Farmer Wants Wife" actually better then Hidden Palms. Awful is the word and Painful To Watch is the classification. The mystery wasn't revealed it was just said "she did it Johnny, she killed Eddie" and that was it, no discovering, no conclusion just that stupid line that summurized 8 episodes of mystery. I can't believe the crew actually watched this and said "yeah, this is the way we want it, this is how it should air on television". Hopefully America was celebrating 4th of july and NOBODY saw this terrible episode. God, I still can't believe how bad it was. It was amazingly bad, like I'd rather die then ever see that episode again bad! Sorry, I sound like one of those irrational teenage girls who don't care about anything but the shows they love.

    Sorry, I'm not like that (first of all I'm a guy), but this was just bad...really, really bad.moreless
