  • The end?

    It's bittersweet knowing that this is the end of the series, but it leaves us realizing that it never really ends. The producers are at fault for not being able to continue the series, but I won't get into that.

    The ending comes very rushed, but on a very exciting note. The Mall Rats have to leave their home behind, and they're all put in danger as they try to stop the virus from getting released. We get to see Mega die, and I personally thought it was a great way to see him go. I love the character development in several characters, especially Ram. Gel is slowly growing on me with being so dimwitted, while I keep getting annoyed by Lottie.

    I am sad that the show is over, but I know that this ending opens up a lot of possibilities for the show to go, especially after the Mall Rats come to a new place, and I can only imagine them reuniting with their long lost friends. Heh, at least we know that they're somewhere out there, right?moreless
