    $#%@. I had accepted with equanimity a headlong rush toward the finish line because I believed it was driven by the "business" part of show business -- a financial decision. Somehow I found that easier to accept.

    I'm minutes away from watching the finale, so I'll try to put this out of my mind.

    Yeah I was the same before I read up on things a bit.

    To a certain extent I still don't blame them. As a writer there's nothing worse than working on a project you don't have a passion for anymore. I think they ultimately handled it badly. For whatever reason. Chasing that next paycheck. Just feeling too enthused about their newer ideas. But at the end of the day it's a very rare thing to have a satisfying final season in any tv show. Most shows have mediocre final seasons and mediocre to disappointing series finales. It's just one of those things that seems too common in television. I actually think I can name the number of properly good planned finales on one hand(as opposed to shows that have been cancelled and didn't receive a proper send off) . Possibly ten at most without really starting to struggle.
    Please do me a huge favour and help me be with the love of my life.
