While I am greatful for 6 seasons, I can’t help but feeling we didnt get to see enough of certain stuff, like Jake with his brother and sister, Tinny in her relationship with her mother and Jake with Sloan. I guess the show never has been one to delve deeper into the relationships between the different characters vut I often wish it had. I guess it straddled the fine line between a drama and comedy so the serious stuff had to be kept to a minimum but I did miss it with this show.
