Well certainly not if the casting continues in the same vein as it did for TAR4, Teri! Rest assured that there will always be those of us who curse the SpitefulTaxiOfPullingUpForTerianThenTakingStraightOffAgain!
It's been interesting reflecting recently on how one's opinions on TAR can differ over time. TAR1 was an absolute TV classic at the time of its first transmission, but watching it again reveals that it's really quite ropey in places.
The same applies to TAR3, and Flo. I remember something of a feeling of underwhelment (sic?) when the cast list first appeared because there seemed to be too many pretty young couples and not enough meat on their bones. Subsequently the casting for TAR3 has stood the test of time very well - particularly a dream final three full of warmth and comedy (Ken and Gerard), grit and determination (Ian and Teri), incredible patience (Zach) and total mortification (Flo).
TAR4's cast looked promising beforehand, but ultimately there was no real antagonists, no real sweethearts and therefore no real spark all the way through it. Say what you will about Flo (and many have!), you can put any episode of TAR3 on your television and be guaranteed entertainment because of her presence.
