    I finally finished the 10-episode series last week, and thought that it was quite good and fun. Apparently, there're another 8 episodes coming at the start of 2013. Hopefully those do well and the series continues.
    It did leave things on a bit of a cliffhanger, but the references to Dead Poets Society throughout the last episode were a lot of fun.

    I really like having this on after "Switched at Birth". That show is so emotionally intense at times that it's nice to a have a follow-up that's mostly just nice and pleasant.

    With the last couple episodes, this show's felt like it's found itself. I really enjoy how the emotional episodes end with an otherwise unrelated dance sequence capturing that emotion.

    Wow -- after spending most of the season in a background dancer role, Kent Boyd (SYTYCD runner-up a couple of seasons ago) was given a season's worth of dialog in the cold open and the last scene. He even had a scene in the middle of the episode. Alas, he is not a very good actor. Jeanine Mason (season 5 winner) is a much more capable and credible actor. Sutton Foster's brother was played by... Sutton Foster's brother. I wonder how long before that was in the works.

    It's been a really busy month for me, so I ended up watching the first four episodes from this current airing on Friday night, back to back. That move with Jordan (with all the dialogue suddenly) is a trademark move of ASP -- she did that kind of thing a ton on Gilmore Girls. It's a good way to flesh out the town. I do quite like this show, it's fun, it's generally pretty light, and even the emotionally deep moments aren't really dark and depressing to watch.

    A bummer, but not a huge surprise. I felt like the show really found its voice toward the end.

    Bunheads says goodbye with one last dance number:Really great to see ASP and the cast come together and do this. Wish Sutton Foster had been available.
