ABC Family (ended 2009)
I was originally going to skip this episode, knowing there would be questions left unanswered, according to a report made after the cancellation was announced. But I couldn't skip it after watching the promo. I am highly disappointed with how it ended and sad that the show will no longer continue, especially with all the new questions that arose. Even with Julie Plec answering questions, it still doesn't change the fact we didn't get to see all this take place on tv.
But I guess one has to take the good with the bad, I mean, there were some awesome sequences that took place, the super jump, Kyle admitting he does indeed have feelings for Jessi, the light blowing out during he kiss, Jessi & Amanda teaming up to take down Nate...it may have ended crappy, and yes, a lot of these cool sequences could've led to pure greatness, but ABC Family, wants to stick to their guns and cut a great show. Overall, the episode wasn't bad, just didn't give this great show & the loyal fans the respectable farewell that is rightly deserved.

This is no series finale of course, almost a finale season!!! We need more KYLE XY...ABC Family really sucks!!!
Well, that truly sucked really didn't it. It sucked exponentially to the power 781227.
I cannot believe that ABC would air that knowing it is the series finale. It begs the question whether the network had actually SEEN the episodes before they cancelled it, because certainly the last few weeks have been very, very good.
Firstly, I thought this episode was hilarious. Some really funny lines in it, my favourite being, "I'll be in my room pretending I'm dead" and also when Jessi was talking about the weed which she learnt from cable. Ha ha. So many good bits.
I actually quite liked the resolution between Kyle/Jessi/Amanda. Okay, we didn't find out who ultimately ended with who, but it's the series finale, so a little ambiguity shouldn't go amiss. All we know is that Kyle has feelings for Jessi, and Amanda is willing to put up a fight. That's all -I- need to know; the rest can be made up in my head.
Josh and Andi had their resolution as well. They're going to work at their relationship.
Full flipping stop. Or as you Americans say... period.
Nothing else seemed resolved in my eyes. The Tragers! We got hardly any Lori love in this episode, nor any appearances from Foss or Hillary! I fully understand this was not intended as a series finale, but it does make me annoyed that the show was cancelled in the first place.
I was honestly watching the episode though, not knowing how long was left, and thought the "brother revelation" was simply at the end of a 'chapter' before the break.. and when the black never ended, I was just in shock. I fully expected to cry, but it never came because we were never given the chance.
As for that interview, some of it is fascinating. I'm not sure how much they would have stuck to this plan especially if the show had went for a projected five more years. I'm sure the network would never have agreed to letting Kyle travel the world sorting out famine, etc. >.< That would be the worst idea ever. I wish we hadn't been told who had been ultimately planned to end up with who either.
Gah, I'm very annoyed and as, like a lot have said, as a season finale it was amazing.. but to end the show on this note is an absolute travesty. I cannot believe it, I really can't.
Kyle XY is over guys.
I've tapped my shoes three times. My eyes are shut and I open it and this show was still cancelled after ending on a season finale?
You mean to tell me they can make A Cinderella Story, Another Cinderella Story, Another Cinderella Story and 1/2 and they can't even make one more Kyle XY TV movie? Au Pair 4? I think I'm going to use my remote and block this channel for the good of all that's wholesome and good.
|**** great episode. great season finale. TERRIBLE series finale. SIGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH leaves me with more questions than i had before. WHy do these channels do this to us?|
|I can think of very few shows which have ended in a decent fashion ("Tilt" being the only show with a proper ending that i have seen).|
