Not an amazing series finale... but they did try!
23 February 2007 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

The thing that mostly bothered me about the series finale was the fact that we'll never get to find out for sure if the child Theresa gave birth to is Ryan's or Eddie's. Sure enough Theresa said flat out to Ryan that it wasn't his baby, but she lied about having a baby at all at first, so this could've been another lie as well because she didn't want Ryan to leave his happy life in Newport now that he had a family and all.

The series finale was far from amazing but I think they gave it the best they could, having to write an end to the series much earlier than expected. Anyways, the series finale still gets a 9 out of 10 from me because it has been my favourite show since it aired for the first time.
