Not sure what time it airs everywhere else, so stop right now if you don't want to be spoiled by other people's comments. Anyway, what did you all think of the ending? What did you like, not like, wish there had been more of, etc?
As a true loyal Shuis viewer since day one, I was extremely insulted by the way JER wrote the Shuis ending. Sheridan would never be happy with Antonio. Luis was the love of her life and nothing would change that. The final nail in the coffin or kick to the gut that JER gave Shuis fans was to find out Fancy was pregnant.I am heartbroken of losing this zany show and will miss it terribly. What I won't miss is JER's horrible rewrites that make no sense.Many thanks Naomi for the coverage of Luis and Sheridan that you gave to the Shuis fans. We appreciate it so much.
As a Shuis fan who started watching 9 years ago just for Shuis, I felt like I got kicked in the stomach by Mr. Reilly! It was horrible that he had everyone claiming to have gotten a 'happy ending' when it wasn't true for the Shuis fans who pushed to keep this show alive when NBC cancelled it. I'm happy that Theresa finally married Ethan. Their loyal fans got their happy ending. It seemed like even Gwen got a better ending than she deserved or than Sheridan got. Did McKenzie or the Shuis fans anger JER that much that he had to stick it to us even in the last show? I liked that Julian got his problem fixed, Father Lonigan got his eyesight back, Timmy was able to briefly reunite with Tabitha, and that Gwen finally got busted. What didn't I like? Shuis being split up and all the rewrites of their love story. The weddings were 'weird' in that the church was empty for almost all of them. Where was Luis' son, Marty or Maria? Shouldn't they have been at the weddings and not upstairs alone? Also, there was way too much wasted story on Juanita and not enough on the weddings themselves. Even on the last show, they wasted precious time repeating the last scene from the previous day's show. It was nice to see all the cast/crew in the church but it would have been better if they had put names to the faces on the screen since we don't usually see the face that goes with the crew names in the credits. They also should have put the crew in the church for the weddings so that it didn't look like the couples had no friends (or family) there.So overall, very disappointed that the show has ended and even more so that my favorite couple didn't get a happy ending.
HATED IT !! SHUIS fans got kicked in HEART one final timeso now we can wait for mckenzie galen to join other soaps would love it to be same on but that is pretty rare so i would be happy with 2 diff soaps as long as i get to still see them daily as well as events
I thought that it was wonderful, now that is how you end a soap opera, unlike port charles who didn't even know that they would never come back after months off to start the next arc. At least the cast of passions got to say goodbye to there fans. I started crying.
I enjoyed Tabitha's pointed speech on the hypocrisy of Father Lonigan, when it came to refusing to forgive and forget and all that. Mainly, because it pointed at another storyline: Ethan, Gwen, and Theresa. I hated Theresa's last speech, her smugness, because for nine years she wasn't reaching for her passion, she was disguising herself and plotting and scheming to get into Ethan's good graces. Pretending to be Gwen's friend at first. Easing her way "in." She didn't want Ethan's paternity to come out because she wanted him to remain a Crane (so that "fate" would take its course). Gwen fought back, as any sensible person would do, and got the shaft...mainly from the writers who seemed to forget the whole thing was started by an annoying teenage girl who snuck into the Crane mansion in a disguise and pretended to be Ivy's hired wedding planner.Then again, I never took much stock in anything to do with Ethan to begin with. As Tabitha said, they all run around pretending to be all good and holy, just they look down on others the first chance they get.I'm disappointed in Shuis's ending, as well. What was built to be star-crossed lovers, what was meant to be, was ruined once again. Because the writers don't understand what it means to write a happy ending, apparently. The second Sheridan started to go crazy, and the second Luis quit trying to save her, and you knew Shuis fans were doomed. Perhaps they could go the DAYS/GH route, moving the supercouple to another show to have a happily ever after.The final scene, everyone waving goodbye, was very nice. It was nice Juliet holding Josh Ryan Evans's picture, and Timmy's singing being the last lines of the show. It was fitting. It was like saying goodbye to an old friend all over again.
Thanks for these comments!I also teared up at the end. I'd always tear up whenever they'd "show" Timmy. I like that PASSIONS continue to honor the character all these years later.
I LOVED IT! ALL OF IT! I Do Wish That They Hadn't Wasted So Much Time On Ethan And Gwen Though. I Will Miss The Show. It Was Different And Fun To Watch.
