third from last, boy, is there ever gonna be withdrawal symptoms in two weeks time!
14 January 2017 | by RavenGlamDVDCollectorSee all my reviews

Just some notes on my feelings as this show, the entire series, comes to a halt. Came to me while watching this, clearly a Season 8 could still have been a viable prospect. Look how great they still look. Everybody of the main cast is totally in their zone with top-notch performances. Good to see Heather Graham in a? part worthy of her. Great show! Don't know why they pulled the plug, but they really shouldn't have. There is nothing on this green Earth to replace this experience. Nothing. Nothing. This is the very epitome of a show meant for mature audiences. Truly mature, not just grown up and old enough. It's a taste with a kick you just cannot find anywhere else. Extremely likable characters. Ranked up there with FRIENDS and BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER in my book.

Two episodes to go...

Hank and Karen, I'm really gonna miss ya!
