I feel bad for Janet, but you can't beat the 'thing' Susan and Roger have!

I want to see Trina and Tom as parents too!

Janet has turned out to be one of my favorite characters. I watch for her and Trina. I have been finding Susan mildly annoying of late, but am interested to see where the storyline goes. Hopefully it will get picked up again!

Happy Mommy to one amazing girl (6y) and one sweet boy (2y), and wife to DH since 7/03 : :

The series ended????? I didn't know? I this show so much! I missed a few of them because there is a tree in the way of my satellite signal but now that the leaves are dropping, I was looking SO FORWARD to not missing any more!

Okay, so I had another thought:

Does Miriam Shor have a problem with committing?

I first saw (and LOVED) her in Hedwig and the Angry Inch (a movie). Then she was on this great filler show a year and a half or two years ago, called Big Day. I loved it, miss it but there was no way that it COULD have been more than a few episodes because the entire show was set during ONE day. Each episode just went deeper or further into the things that happened on that day. It was hilarious.

Now another filler? (She's Janet btw)

It's so strange for me to watch her as the uptight one on this show. That certainly isn't the role that she's played in the other things that I've seen her in, but that just makes me have even more respect for her skills as an actress. She has great range, and can pull off an angry, broody trans-transgendered person as well as she can a bright, peppy uptight suburban wifey. That is true acting.

There is one more episode.

I'm so annoyed with the direction the Susan-Bruce relationship took, and the role Trina played in it.

I totally cried when Tom told Trina he never loved her more than he did right at that moment. I love Tom! He's the bee's knees.

I'm a morning person.  We actually do exist.

Agreed! I had seen Hedwig, but had no clue who Miriam Shor was, but Swingtown made me love her so much. It was then, that I realized Shor had played both a stick in the mud and a man. I think she's a great actor! Go Miriam!
