I love this show. I will definitely miss it when it's gone.
I actually never watched this show. Just never had any interest.
Its going to be sad seeing this show go.
I stopped watching back at season 3, I need to binge it sometime and catch up. I heard it gets a lot better
This show has been so sporadically good for me. Its never been so low that I didnt remotely enjoy it but I feel like they can only do so much with it with so many ideas. I did enjoy when they merged events from the movies and some even showed the aftermath of the events in the movies which was a neat touch that I cant think of any show doing coinciding with movies. Glad its going to go out on top tho and not dragging its lifeless corpse around, milking its fetid teet like TWD series is doing. It will be interesting if any of these characters from the show pop up in random cameos in the future movies.

If its doing so well, why knock it down to 13 episodes a season and cancel it after 7?
Oh well, I'll be sorry to see it go, but the rest of the MCU was starting to contaminate it anyway. Bad comedy, obnoxious characters, best it goes now before it gets any worse.
Sad to see the show ending, but I guess it was inevitable. I'm just glad that they are having a 7th season as this time last year, I think most thought this was the last season.
