Not every episode should be nail-biting, fist-clenching. Even so, as a placeholder it did a good job of character development while evoking some genuine laughs and eye-popping moments. Aside - what was Kaylee's age - Mike's granddaughter, at the beginning of BB? This takes place 6 years prior to the Saul Goodman character meeting Walter White ~ 2002 at the latest. I know, I know, BCS should stand on its own two feet, but it is part of the BB universe.

How about Connor as the killer? He has a dark side and uses social networking notoriously, and he has never been in danger (as far as I remember).

What can I say? My favorite TV show of all time has ended but it will stay with me forever in memory and DVD replays. Christine, your report was spot-on and I agree with your assessment fully. Thank you! I understand the slow public showing of affection that has disappointed viewers but it fits with their slowly developing relationship and was a way to show their uncertainties about it. Considering the series overall my one wonderful impression is of how fresh and creative the characters were portrayed. No stereotypes, a nice nonjudgmental sprinkling of ethnic, cultural, religious, etc etc diversities, I loved how the series, through Jane's character, treated everyone except evildoers with respect, including prostitutes. I loved how the series dealt honestly and humanely with gender differences, miscarried justice re capital punishment, death with dignity re Dr. Steiner, and how it presented sexual scenes without resorting to that ridiculous clothes-ripping stuff other shows seem to think necessary. That "Erica kiss" for example. The most sensuous scene ever, yet minimally physical. I loved Jane's view of right and wrong, unorthodox as it was. It was right for the situation. I especially loved the creative staging of Jane's hideaway in the CBI attic. It said so much about his character while being visually intriguing. The only negative thing about the series was the mishandling of the Red John reveal and takedown. Didn't even remotely fit anything the series had told us about the Rj character. However, I did love the killing scene, showing Jane strangling McCallister with his left hand, wedding ring in full view. To me it was as though Jane was symbolically bringing his wife and daughter with him and the three of them got their revenge together. I could go on and on, as we all could. and I will miss these chats. I do hope the DVD will have an extra where the cast sheds more light on S7 and why they worked it out as they did. It was a beautiful thing. Thanks to all of you for your comments and to Christine for her well written and insightful reviews.

I agree what made the show great was the uniqueness of the characters and their development.... I always loved PJ even for his flaws (maybe we are his 'ideal fans'!)...and cheered for him to find happiness. In the final scene when he hugged Lisbon and she had a wonderful smile. I felt like she was smiling because she knew she made him happy too
I agree with you that the way the 'physical aspect' of the couple was handled In the final series was correct. It just would not have made sense to be ripping off clothes. Now saying that the final episode with all the joy of the episode - and the passionate wedding kiss was amazing and I was thankful to see that!

Grey's Anatomy Round Table: Are You on Team Omelia?

Amelia is doing well. I think she will grow on a lot of people. I am surprised that people cannot figure out why she is so confident, so pushy. Um, hello, she is a Shephard too! Derrick wasn't grown in a petri dish; a lot about his family would rub off on Amelia as well as Derrick. Plus, I remember her from Private Practice, so I know that her arrogance isn't bone deep, she is just confident about her abilities. She's not a character that thinks she's infallible. That, I can work with.
I'm hoping Meredith doesn't get another "person". That is a huge part of her problem - she leans too much on Derrick and before him, Christina. She needs to be a lot less co-dependent, and this separation is a great way for that to happen.

How could they not list Vala Mal Doran on Stargate and Farscape? But I am looking forward to seeing her again. This should be interesting to see.

Absolutely 7X13 was the best. If the creators had given TL and PJ the moments throughout the season that they did in "White Orchids" to express their affection in logical places, e.g. rescue scene in Greybar Hotel, I would have been able to rate the season an "A". Otherwise I agree with most of your choices. Cannot believe you and so many others failed to pick up on Gabriel's statement that "cure will come with the number three" was a prediction that the darkness in Jane would be resolved and that he would know it when he saw it. PJ even commented on it two more times in that episode when he was playing pinball and won "not 1 but 3 free games" and when he met the 3 legged dog. Both times he scoffed, which shouted to me that it was a pivotal point of the episode and, as it turned out, the series.
