  • One of the best series finales ever

    This is one of the rare series finales I feel like I could watch 100 times. It is truly one of the best. If you can ignore the silly, boring subplot in which Paul and Jamie find out the aren't really married and finally, after 7 years, tie the knot for real, that is. Most series finales are expected to be an Event with some Major Moment and this finale didn't give us any Moments. It simply followed the Buchmans through their lives. Mabel grew up and Paul and Jamie grew old. Together, naturally. They had problems, just like any real couple. What else could we expect from a show that, unlike too many others, actually tried to give a realistic - sometimes ridiculous - portrayal of what marriage is really like? It is wonderful that the viewers were allowed a chance to see what's in store for their favorite characters. We are not left to wonder what will happen, when and how. Also, it saves the cast from ever having to participate in one of those God-awful reunion ratings stunts.
