Is anyone else so happy its back on?

I just love how sweet and nice it is. I swear nearly every episode makes me teary!

I cant think of another current show that has a similar fluffy, romantic feel to is without going too far OTT.

Really?  I don't recall if I ever saw the finale, what happened in it?

I loved the finale.  One of my favourite final eps ever.

Did you just kiss me?
I didn't think so  llove.gif

Essentially, the finale documented the rest of their story.  Their daughter grew up and become a documentary film maker just like Paul.  Paul and Jamie had split up but then at the end got back together.  I thought the end speech where Mabel ask everyone but Jamie to turn around and then she spoke just to her was just beautiful.

Ok, I have it in my collection and will be watching it at some point over the weekend.  It's relatively kid friendly.

I love Mad About You and have some of the DVDs. One of my all time favourite comedies. It had some really poignant moments too.

They don't make sitcoms like it anymore.

I didn't really like the finale but for me rest makes up for that.

When is it on TV now?

I loved the finale. I cried my eyes out. Especially the montage at the end and when they talk about Bert sad.gif.

Oh, I adore Mad About You. DH bought me the Best of collection for his wedding gift to me, because he is 'mad about me'. Oh I love that show. Oh I love DH. ..

Sometimes that's just easier howdo  biggrin.gif   I have the Best of collection, which has opening commentary by both Paul and Helen for some episodes.  I think it is a collection of their favourite episodes.  The only disappointment with that particular DVD set is that their wedding episodes aren't on it.

I was too young to appreciate it when it originally aired but its a show I have always wanted to watch now that I am older. How many seasons were there?

If I recall correctly ... there were seven ... I think ... or nine. It wasn't ten, that was Friends Tounge1.gif
