Bye Bye Party of Five, etc. : LUSENET : Planning A Sky : One Thread

Are you heartbroken over the ending of a television show? Have you ever recovered from the loss of My So-Called Life? Or Another World? Or The Wonder Years?

Speaking of Po5, can anyone tell me what the heck happened? I don't watch, have never watched, but I always know what's going on somehow and don't know how it ended.

Embarrassingly enough, I'd also be interested in hearing about what happened with Pacey and Joey on Dawson's Creek, but I'll never admit that in public.

Northern Exposure! God, how I love that show. We have lots and lots of episodes on tape, courtesy of A&E. I SO want to believe there's a Cicely, Alaska out there somewhere that I can move to some day.

The Brick; Chris in the Morning; Shelly and Holling and the Pooper in the Love Grotto with the awful pink bedroom; Ed's Indian-spirit visitor; Maurice's closet homosexuality; Maggie's shrine to her dead boyfriends; Joel's New York angst; Elaine's love from the circus; Adam's culinary genius and Eve's hypochondria; geez, I could go on and on. Great soundtracks, too.

I never quite forgave them, however, for replacing Joel with that tall doctor and his way-too-blonde wife. They never worked for me.

Oh, and thirtysomething. Loved that show, too. Herskovitz and Zwick haven't quite lived up to that one again for me.

as far as PO5 goes...julia moved to DC to take a magazine job and be with justin. bailey went to business school in pennsylvania. claudia got accepted to julliard, and charlie and kirsten sold the house and moved, since everyone else was leaving. they found out that kirsten was expecting a boy. all in all, the episode was but that final scene made me a bit ended with simon & garfunkel's "old friends" playing over the closing credits. something about that song just gets me every time:) i've watched PO5 from the beginning, so i'm a little sad to see it go. i'll just have to find something else to do during the 9pm hour on tuesdays. and although it wasn't technically a final episode, the episode of "sisters" where falconer died in that explosion as teddy looked on was pretty intense. i've always liked sela ward, and i still think that falconer was george clooney's best role.

As for My So-Called Life, and if I ever got over it, the answer would be a definitive NO.

In fact, just yesterday, I re-watched the "Life of Brian" episode -- one of the show's best, in my humble opinion -- and found completely new ways to analyze it.

I think it's a sickness.

I owe to this show a lot of things, but one major thing is how it brought me to the internet. The mailing list, composed of the show's rabid and intelligent fans, was the first part of the internet that I ever really embraced. I mostly just lurked, but it was a wonderful experience.

I'm already worried about the end of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. I'm afraid next year will be its last season, and i'll go through two years of college with no quality television.

I'm also completely not able to accept that Sports Night has been cancelled. And Freaks and Geeks. What kind of cheap monkey crack are these producers smoking? Nae
