    I really liked the Dead Poet’s Society ending.

  • nikki

    ^ Mee too. The whole episode was good.

  • Juan

    Great episode of Bunheads very happy about it being renewed though I wish Jane by Design had been renewed and that Secret life would finally be put to rest, I watched till like a month or two ago

  • panda22

    It was a good mix of comedy and surrealism, the Hubbell dream….and as said the girls all standing up for Michelle. My guess is the first ep. back will have Fanny or the four girls tryna bring Michelle back to Paradise….think they’ll wait an episode or two though before she returns.

    I didn’t love the ending as much of the above viewers did and thought it went downhill somewhat as the season went on.

    Juan Secret still has the best numbers so why should it be cancelled ? Have some sense..please.
