RIP in peace, sweet prince. I'm expecting something big from the last episode tonight. Most disheartening is no more Bruce. Still got Suits left, and in a week or two Agents of SHIELD starts up on ABC, I guess. Anyway, here's hoping the end is at least half way as satisfying as House's was.

It's been a good show, kind of like a modern MacGuyver. A few weapon inaccuracies and such, but no one expects perfection, right? Wasn't much of a fan of Fiona at all, but adding Coby Bell (Jesse) was a great addition. Madeline was always amusing, and of course Bruce Campbell. A B line up in a grade A TV series.

I love the show, been watching it from day one. I was telling people about it for a good two years before it started to get popular. I'm going to miss it. Sadly, three of the roughly ten shows I bother to watch are in their final seasons right now. TV is going to be so much less interesting in a couple months.

It was pretty **** good.

Cried like a ***** for Maddy.

Nice, if slight, mind **** over the end how the entire series was Michael telling the story to Charlie. Not much of one, mind you. But a nice touch that kind of changes the entire show slightly, at least for me.

I knew it would end like that in some way, and I called the final line for the show back during season 3. But I expected him to maybe be a professor at some kind of spy school or something.

And I love how they had a call back to the opening credits all through the episode. That was awesome.

I liked the ending. i don't think there was really much the could have done better. The only part that bugged me was the way they had Maddy die. She's bot a block of electrically detonated C4. She has an older style burner cell phone with a physical speaker in the phone for the ringer. She has a presumably fully trained spy with her who knows how to work with explosives. You're telling me they couldn't have rigged up a ringer detonator in 2 minutes? Sure there's a small chance that someone could call the phone during the setup and blow it up ahead of time. but I'd still take that over 100% chance of death in the situation. I guess I just wish they had at least mentioned that as a possibility and then claimed there wasn't enough time or something like that. But thats really my only gripe.
