I just got issue #89 last night and read it pretty much right when I got home (I think I might have done the dishes first though).  I'm just so disappointed with the way Terry has let the series' quality fall at the end of its run, especially with how much I have loved each book up until some of the more recent issues. 

Tambi and Casey's scene together:

"It's not your fault." 
"It's not your fault." 
"It's not your fault." 

Sorry Terry, but I have seen Good Will Hunting and you completely ripped one of its more memorable scenes.  Come on. 

Plus the way Katchoo and Francine are interacting with each other feels so forced and labored to me.  It doesn't feel real. 

Maybe it's better that the series is ending in just one more issue.  I'd hate to have to come to the realization that it's better to stop picking up each issue of this series that I once so passionately loved reading.

I realize that there will probably be a lot of people that disagree with me and that's alright.  We all are entitled to our opinions.  But I just can't help feeling that I, a loyal reader since I picked up Issue 1 of the first Volume (First volume, not the First mini-series), have been let down.

I really liked the Francine/Katchoo scene, but that aside...

"maybe someday... somebody care about me..."

Is that the smallest violin in the universe I hear? I think SiP just broke all previous sappiness records. We know Tambi has feelings like everyone else, but isn't this a *little* too much saccharine?
I completely agree with you. This was way out of character for Tambi, the strong, silent type. I WANT MY OLD SiP BACK. Oh wait, I have all the old issues, so I guess, I do, have them back.
I felt the same way unfortunately. *sigh*

It's difficult to pinpoint just what irked me about the issue. The reminder of the scene where Francine rips her clothes off for Freddie in the park bothered me for some reason. That was a classic scene no doubt, but it seemed like an inappropriate reflection on past events that led up to this point.
Yeah, the scene with Freddie and Francine wasn't a nice memory, so why remind us of it for this scene which is suppose to be a scene all of us readers have been waiting for for so long? It didn't make any sense.
maybe it was just showing us that even though francine changed allot during her separation from katchoo there is still a bit of the old francine left? Something seemed a little strange to me with this issue but i still like it :)
