I thought it was really good, even though it was pretty much a completely different story from the book. First and second seasons were great, but the third season was a little dumb. These two ladies just suddenly show up and take over like that? It was kinda far fetched.

Is it possible they can continue it in the future? I really want to know if Norrie saves Joe, and why the others didn't seem to know him. Why wouldn't Norrie ask for their help? I just really loved Joe and Norrie and thought they were a great couple and want them to get the happy ending like Julia and Barbie. It didn't seem fair.

Maybe they could do a follow up movie to show what happens?

We watched till the end. After the first few times of telling my hubby, "No, this did NOT happen this way in the book!" I finally just told him to shut up and watch or go to another room! He watched. It got weirder and weirder and while, I would have liked to see a more finished ending (especially for Joe and Norrie), I wasn't sad when it got cancelled. If only, once, Julia's hair could've gotten messed up/dirty!:rolleyes:

Yeah it was definitely a completely different story than the book. Big Jim and Junior were actually likeable most of the time, whereas in the book, I hated them from the moment they appeared in the story and just hated more throughout. All the characters were different from their book versions. Barbie wasn't even the cook at Rose's place. I have to admit I was on the edge of my seat throughout the whole series waiting to see what happened next.

And I'm also glad to see I'm not the only Joe and Norrie fan, haha. They were really cute in the book too, even though they were much younger.
