This show is the only one on television that I can't miss and even when I'm not home on Thursdays, I have it taped to watch it later. I find that it meshes reality with its fictional yet believable characters really well and based on the diversity there is at least one person on the show that you can relate to. It teaches valuable life lessons and here you are able to see human behaviour at its best and worst. You literally feel for the characters, you share their joys and you grieve with them.
The script is well written, the actors are terrific and though i was a bit disappointed with the end of the 3rd season I would still recommend it to anyone. I can't wait till the new episodes come out. Woot, woot!
