I was so shocked that the season just ended so abruptly. I really did't want the show to end. I miss all the drama. To me it was like the show had so many situations but was magically fixed by the finale. There should have been more power driven behind the episode. I am happy that Baze and Kate ended up together, but before the jump they weren't even heading in the direction of being a couple. The show was forced to have everyone be with the people they were mention to be with even though the show didn't hint at it in the beginning of the episode. I wish they do a few more seasons leading up to last few moments of the finale to clear up how everything happened. I am still a fan of the show and I will keep watching reruns.
I really felt cheated at the end of the show. I felt like they were trying to wrap things all nice and tight and please everyone having the show end like they invisioned when they first started it, but for me, it didn't work.
Specially when it comes to Baze/Cate/Ryan. This last season Cate fought for her marriage, she fought to be together with Ryan because she loves him. And Ryan fought for the same thing, he fought to be together with her. Yes, he wanted a baby of his own, but Ryan was, throughout the whole show, the adult, the rational one. He wouldn't have left Cate and get together with Julia just because of a baby. I see him being a part of the kid's life and being content that he has a child in this world, even if it's not with the woman he loves. Baze/Cate just doesn't work, not after two seasons, maybe if the show had a longer run, they could make it work. But for me, Baze will always be the popular jock you had a crush on and wanted him to notice you. It doesn't matter that it's 15 years later and you are on a high school reunion, you still want him to notice you, see how well you turned out, how you're beautiful and have a slamming body or whatever. They had very little time to build their relationship to make a Baze/Cate ending plausible. I thought I was cheated that they took the easy way out: make it so it's two years later, everyone exchanged loved ones and no one thinks it's awkward.
Tasha/Jones/Lux is the same thing, they couldn't handle Lux not being in a relationship and it was already too late to introduce someone new on the show. So it was: sorry, Tasha, you're so out of luck, Lux has to end the show with a normal relationship, you, we don't care so much.
And the show was very contraditory. Before the two years later jump, there's this scene of Cate and Ryan back on the show playing Sex, Marry, Kill. They declare themselves to each other finally sounding like they found their stride in their marriage and then two years later, they're both with other people.
I really like the show, I liked the premise, the characters, the writing. But the ending was disappointing.
Again, I really felt like they were just trying to please everyone by making it a Cate/Baze. Because that was what they wanted. I think they forgot that sometimes, the couple doesn't have to end together. Dawson and Joey didn't and the ending of Dawson's Creek was good.
Yeah I think they should go back in time, and show how they all got to where they were....2 more years! I'm upset about this show going off the air. Now I have to find something else to watch.
so mad so mad so mad that was the ending of the season i loved this show why take it off ? ughhhh !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This was definitely the review that most closely reflected my own take on the last episodes: I thought the writers did a great job wrapping the arcs that were already in motion, and I like how things ended up (Cate and Baze; Ryan and Julia; Jones and Lux; even Alice and Math!) but I really, really, REALLY would've liked to follow the characters and the story there. It would be absolutely amazing, I think: to see Cate and Baze find each other again; to see Cate and Ryan struggle to part but succeed in the end like they always have; to see Jones and Lux grow in their incredible connection and have Tash gracefully step aside, like we know she would; even to laugh at the awkwardness that must ensue when Alice and Math check each other out! Which brings me to my plea -
CW Execs, if you renew the series after all, there is still so much that the writers have to work with, filling out those 2 years for us - there's still at least two seasons worth of good material in this show, please, please, please consider. I'm really holding out hope that there must be some kind of hesitation going on, with the refusal to confirm series cancellation, that there's some kind of factor signaling to you guys that you could be making a big mistake canceling this show - the critical acclaim? The ardent fan support? The insightful-funny writing? The great cast chemistry? The sum of these parts? So many good reasons right there! Please, please, please see this show for the dramatic gold mine that it is, non-pareil since the likes of Gilmore Girls. Please!
I liked the ending of the show. I was very surprised to see that it was over. I had no idea the series was over until I watched the end and asked myself "does this mean it is over?" I wish they could have explained more what happened when Cate and Ryan talked after she seen Julia, and How Cate and Baze got together. It just seemed like a really big jump at then end. Of course that is how I would have wanted the show to end but, I feel a little ripped off!
they packed way to many things in the last 2 minutes of the show. so stupid it was so bad. Which is really sad because this was the best show that the cw had stupid of them to cancel it and end it so abruptly.
So disappointing! I realize they wanted the fans to have closure but it just felt like going to the last page of a book and reading it when you're only 1/2 way through!
BOOO - why did we spend to much time on Kate and Ryan working through everything (especially that last scene where he tells her he loves her more than having a baby...AND then going to bat to work together...AND her saying the person she wanted to "be with" was him during their work game.) UGH! Then to suddenly have him with Julia and her with Baze! Bleh! Baze should've been with her BFF and that could've been his baby. (I didn't need to see Matt have a happy ending) Awful! Just awful!
I loved the ending. I was and am devasted that Erick left, I hoped when Lux turned around at the graduation that, that was him. Sadly it wasn't. I think other then that the couples ended up perfect!!! I'm soooo gona miss this show.
