Hi I'm new here. I just discovered this site some week ago, and I'm absolutely thrilled. Thanks to the writers, you are doing such a good job, it's pure pleasure to read. I'm not through, though - in the middle of season 7. I hope you haven't given up.
I just found your site and am only disappointed that there doesn't seem to be much recent traffic on it.
Anyway, just in case any of you fantastic writers are still out there - thank you. I think you've saved me from a terrible case of the Moonlighting blues. I loved the series when I was a teenager way back in the 80s when it first screened, and, like everyone, was devasted when everything went so gut-wrenchingly bad in the 4th season. I've seen the odd re-run episode from time-to-time but haven't watched the entire thing since it first screened.
About three weeks ago, something made me start watching the episodes on YouTube. I hate to say it but I had forgotten just how wonderfully witty and clever it was in those first couple of seasons. But as I hit season 4 I'm not sure what happened, I found it quite painful to watch the disintegration of something that had been so good, particularly as this time I knew how it ended. I got to the end of season four and watched the first three episodes of season 5 and then I just had to stop. I couldn't face the Annie crap over again. I think I must have watched too many too close together and got a bit of a hangover!
And then I found your site and thank goodness I did. I've got up to the beginning of season 8 already and am loving the ride (yes, I know David would have some kind of quip for that). I have actually found myself spluttering with laughter several times - you all have those characters so true. Such a shame you weren't on the original writing team, ladies. Anyway, just wanted to say a heartfelt thank you for helping me to find those moonbeams again.
I don’t think I can properly express how much joy this series has brought me. I was a teenager when Moonlighting was on and truly fancied myself the world’s most obsessed fan back in the day. I had VHS recordings of every episode and could recite certain pivotal scenes verbatim. Imagine my delight with the advent of the internet to find there were others like me out there. It took me a while to discover this site. It’s 2021. Maddie and David would be 71 and 66 by now! But, oh my, this brought back - and brought sweet closure to - every fantasy I’ve carried all these years for these beloved characters. Oh the satisfaction of seeing David Addison, who remains my penultimate dream man even today, finally get the love, appreciation and happiness he so richly deserved! This series is such a gift, and such a brilliant evolution of this relationship. I can’t tell you how much I needed this. Excellent work! Bravo! My only regret is there are no more episodes. But you brought enough closure to David and Maddie’s love story that I can happily imagine their lives going forward, their love, and their happily ever after. Thank you really isn’t enough, but, thank you!
