Tame but okay ending.
11 January 2015 | by annemarie-289-439014See all my reviews

I do not agree with all the negative feedback here. OK, it might have been slightly disappointing yes, but series tend to build expectations amongst their fans, that can't be met. Not equally for everybody.

I myself kind of liked this ending to the 10yo RJ-chase. Since we knew of 'the list' and 'the handshake' (no spoilers there, are there?) you could've come up yourself with the possibility that this whole thing would end rather tame, like it did.

I see this show - a bit like Dexter - as a crime comedy with many good working habits. The couch, the always being or trying to be asleep of Jane, the constant eating everywhere, the tea, Cho being so 'distant but sexy as hell', etc etc. So RJ was one of the working habits, the underlying need for the show, but got worn out a bit. It had to end and the way it ended was full of hope, mid season, so you knew there was coming more.

I still like the rest of se6 and starting with 7 now. There are not many series that capture me all seasons through. This one does. Jane is a nutter, but what's not to like about him.

(my only thing is that I'm not the biggest fan of Lisbon, her speaking annoyes me, every word that comes out of her, sorry Lisbon)
