A good ending.
17 October 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The ending was good not great. I think that they should have been given at least a season longer so that the last 10 minutes of the last episode didn't seem so cluttered. Oh and i think the icing would have been Ryan giving that little kid a ride in his car and it ending with an acoustic version of phantom planet- California...What do ya think?

As for Taylor not being a suit for Ryan i have to disagree i thought she fitted in well, she could never replace Marissa but she did a good job.

However i do agree about the whole Che being introduced a bit pointless, great actor pointless character.
