    My God what a hell of a finale! Truly brilliant from start to finish. The writing Dan did was astonishingly well done as well as his superb acting. Eugene Levy was fantastic as well and Murphy had her best season. This show has been sheer brilliance from day one and I am so glad that it went out on top that’s how you sign off a show. But i would be remissed if I obviously did not single out one of the greatest actor of all time not just in comedy but in any genre ms Catherine O’Hara. What she created as Moira was simply iconic, there are no other words to describe who fucking amazing she was as Moira, her speech, her movements, her wardrobe, her wigs. As I was watching the finale I watched as Moira came walking down the aisle and seeing that she was dressed like the pope I started cheering and screaming out loud “Of course she would wear that, because she’s that bitch!” O’Hara was always the best part of the show and I’m very sad to see this little gem of a show that could end but thank God it ended perfectly. I need more than anyone for Catherine to win her so very deserved Emmy because she simply deserves it for her titillating, lightning in a bottle, gut laugh inducing iconic creation of the one and only Moira Rose.

    Finale ratings were the show’s highest ever by a mile!

    I thought the finale was mostly good.

    Everything around the happy ending was stupid, though, and felt out of character for both the show and David/Patrick as a couple. I felt the same about the botched threesome earlier this season – their relationship was affectionate but fairly asexual until this season, but now they’re suddenly non-monogamous?

    I also think the show forgot about Alexis these last 4-5 episodes. As good an arc as she had for much of the show, she spends the last half of the season morose over Ted and her parents leaving town and her end game is “going to New York…for some vague, amorphous reason.” I wish there had been some payoff – Ted comes back, she gets a big job offer, some type of tangible, specific conclusion to her story.

    But the wedding was very well done. O’Hara was obviously tremendous for a number of reasons. I thought Patrick singing his vows was one of the most beautiful moments of the series and easily the most deeply felt emotion of the past few episodes, which went a little saccharine for me.

    And I loved the last couple lines + the final image they left it on.

    A lovely and emotional series finale, though I preferred the penultimate episode. I think it would’ve been much better to combine the two into a one-hour episode, or air them on the same night. If it was technically one episode, I think it would’ve made an incredible writing submission for Dan Levy. Aside from a few quibbles, it was a great finale and a really wonderful final season. I’ve been watching the show from the pilot episode and I will miss it tremendously.

    I hope it’s coming for a number of Emmys. It really deserves Series, Actress, and Writing at the very least; Actor, Supporting Actor, and Supporting Actress would be icing on the cake. Does anyone have thoughts on what might make a strong Directing contender? No one episode in particular stood out to me, though I did binge-watch this final stretch so the episodes somewhat blended together.

    I feel like Directing will be the real place where this show will prove if it can win Series or not. Just like Fleabag season two, there wasn’t really a standout directing episode. In retrospect, we should’ve seen Fleabag’s series win from a mile away because a very non-showy episode got into directing, proving that it had a huge amount of support. I still think Schitt’s can win Series without a directing nod, but if it gets that, then I’ll be sold that it’s the frontrunner, because that shows that the Academy just loves the show and wants to reward it everywhere, regardless of specific category merit.

    For Directing, it definitely helps that the finale will probably be on the ballot with Dan Levy’s name right there. I could definitely see it getting nominated.

    Finale Grade: A+
    Finale MVP: Daniel Levy
    Season Grade: A-
    Season MVP: Annie Murphy
    Series Grade: A-
    Series MVP: Catherine O’Hara

    Came back to this thread after I finished the show and just wanted to say that I echo this sentiment pretty much exactly!

    RE: Emmy chances. Maybe I’m being overly optimistic, but I think this show has a fighting chance to sweep pretty hard. Fleabag comparisons have kind of been a cheap go-to for a lot of things post-Emmys 2019, so let me make a distinction: Fleabag’s passion was essentially because it’s so brilliant (and fairly accessible). I think the passion Schitt’s will garner won’t be because people think of it as flawless television (it’s not, the directing is distracting sometimes and the plotting isn’t air tight) but because it’s just so goddamn happy and makes its audience so goddamn happy. The emotional response is overwhelming, and I imagine overcomes any snobbish reservation. The underdog story only helps.

    I heard that Season 6 was dropping on Netflix today, but then learned that it would only be dropping in the UK, Ireland, and Australia.

    This got me thinking, do you think they will drop it on Netflix in the US in June with the strategy it would build more buzz for Emmy nomination voting in July?

    Typically they drop on Netflix in October, but I just can’t see them passing up an opportunity to generate better Emmy chances.

    Congrats to the cast and crew on another six Canadian Screen Award wins! Including Catherine O’Hara and Emily Hampshire both going five in a row, Eugene Levy winning for the first time since the first season and the series receiving its third victory.
