With the show coming to a close this week, and having given everyone 5 days to watch the last episodes, it is time to discuss.
In the end the show turned out very nicely, progressing characters along in mostly believable ways, from releases and regressions, to setbacks and deaths.
All the emotions were toyed with:
- Charlie’s coming out of a coma and finally talking
- The relationship falling apart and rekindling between Emma and her Mom
- May and Dash + May and Leo
It’s a shame that they had to end it at 13-episodes, as more exposure to the hazards of some of these diseases could’ve been a good wake up call for a lot of people.
Cancer, anorexia, cystic fibrosis, and all the other things touched on, are mostly unknowns to people unless they have experienced it firsthand.
What this show ultimately proves is sung out nicely by the main characters at the end:
You can’t always get what you want, but if you try sometimes, you might find, you get what you need.
I will stick with my original review and an 8 out of 10.
