A good finale except the last episode with drawn out sentimentality.

This series had it's ups and downs but in general it has been interesting up to now. That cannot be said of this final installment.

What they should have avoided was the satisfying their urge to create a useless and boring 7th Season focused on what happens to the main characters post war. It disappoints on many levels.

We see the folks decades later in the future and also in flashbacks to just after the war as they struggle with a peacetime France. It is really boring and there is very little that is compelling. Very little new information is revealed and without the stress and negative excitement inherent in daily life during the war everything seems in slow motion. It is sad they just had to do it and take the risk of tarnishing what was a good series up to now.

At this point and having plowed through the final episodes fueled by lots of caffeine, I can only share my honest opinion: spend your valuable time on this at your own risk....you may find it a waste like I did.
