Anyone catch the most recent show?

Jack takes the wrap for the accident so Marcus doesn't have to risk the drunk driving arrest.

Missy's father tell the parishioners that Missy was a sinner and went down the wrong path during her funeral.

They did an excellent job matching the young Warren with the older Warren (Harry Groener).

I really hope that this show comes back, but at this point, it does't seem hopeful.

I watched it. Good episode and I appreciated that they didn't take some cheesey sit-com way out to make it all happy-ending. Too bad this show isn't drawing in more people, but it's probably because it's not using cheesey sit-com happy endings

Can't believe they wrote Warren out of the show (for the most part).

Given Marcus's position in Bobby's cabinet/entourage in the future, I guess this is basically the end of it for Jack assumming responsibility for driving on prom night.

This show has improved 10 fold.

They softened Grace.
Shifted focus to Jack.
Got out of the University <Yawn>
Killed off Missy.

Although, I would partly attribute my increased enjoyment of the show from watching all the episodes and getting a better feel of the personalities of the characters.

Did Missy have a sister? I thought that in a previous episode that it was mentioned she did, but in other episodes she was an only child. Not sure, but at the funeral, I am pretty sure it said that she was an only child.

This is definitely one of my favorite shows on TV now.

The show continues to deliver outstanding stories and an excellent mix of present day and 40 some years hence. I'm going to miss it as I figure it has almost no chance of being renewed.

The reverend's "eulogy" is one of the most disgusting things I've ever seen portrayed on TV but one must admit what he said is consistent with his beliefs. That's not saying he couldn't have had the sense not to say it in front of the entire congregation on the occasion of daughter's funeral. Kudos to his wife.

This show is the perfect example of something critically acclaimed yet largely ignored. I wish they would sell the rights of it to another channel like Bravo, who has the right audience for it and would try its hardest to keep it on.
