Read the three books years ago when I stumbled upon the series on TV by accident. Loved them all. Now, in a catch up, I found the DVDs and watched them. Further Tales of the City was good, but yet, I thought it should of kept the series up with what happened to Mary Ann and Brian's marriage when she got famous and got a big head in the process and how she drastically changed from sweetness and light to a total 'b'. And they should of touched on Brian's part for how he handled the downward spiral of their marriage, and I really wanted to see when John contracted AIDS and died from it and how his character dealt with it and how Michael dealt with it. All this series did was touch upon it by Michael seeing a 'hickey' on John's neck area. Would of really loved to see how Michael took care of John in his decline. Could of been really touching, more so than the note Michael dictated to Mona in series one to his mother in which he came out which I found to be rather heavy handed and sappy. Other than my disappointment that they ended the series the way they did instead of going on and finishing it like the book, it is really good and worth the while to see. Armistead Maupin says his books and this series shows how people change, and it would of been really interesting to see how Mary Ann did a complete 180 degree change in her personality and how Michael dealt with the AIDS issue and how all the friendships changed.
