REALLY Should Have Been The FINAL Episode.

The three part story of "Mike's New Job"-"The Dinner Guest" comes to a dramatic conclusion with "The Stivics Go West." This emotional episode could have been the perfect way to send this iconic legendary show into the sunset in dramatic style.

Both couples renew their vows with "Reverend Ching- Chang-Chong-Whatever." (Too funny!) From there, we get the final goodbyes. The big highlights were the moments where Mike confronts Archie and tells him despite all the arguments and disagreements they had over the years, he always loved him. Archie, naturally, holding back all his emotions,felt the same way. Very touching scenes.

This show, after the fourth season, had it's ups and downs. Some good episodes and some not so good episodes. This would of been the perfect way to send the show off into the sunset. I understand that Norman Lear wanted to have this be the finale, but the network wanted to drag it out further. It's just too bad they went that route.
