Dear 43 Things Users,

10 years after introducing 43 Things to the world, we have decided we have met our last goal: completing the incredible experience that has been 43 Things. Please join us in giving one last cheer to all the folks who have shared their goals with the world, as well as all the people who have worked at The Robot Co-op to build this incredible website. We won a Webby Award, published a book, and brought happiness to a lot of people.

Starting today, 43 Things users can export their goals and entries from the site. Starting August 15, we will make the site “read only”. 43 Things users will still be able to view the site and export their content, but we won’t be taking any new content from users. We hope to leave the site up for folks to see and download their content until the end of the year. Ending on New Year’s Eve takes us full circle.

It has been a long ride (one of our original goals was to "build a company that lasts at least 2 years” - we beat that one!) While we wish the site could live on, it has suffered from a number of challenges - changes in how people use the site, the advertising industry, and how search engines view the site. We wish the outcome was different – but we’ve always been realistic about when our goals are met and when they aren't.

As of today, you will be able to download your goals and entries. See more about that on the FAQ page. Thanks for 10 great years of goal-setting and achieving.

Finished Season 7 - and the series!

Finally toward the end there were some scenes I remembered from when I watched them at the time – 15 years ago! I must say it was all much more impressive then. I still got a little emotional when Closing Time played at the end but really, I’ve spent the last few seasons watching it to get it over with. I’m glad it’s done now!
No interest in watching the 2009 reboot, I’ve seen a little and it was terrible.

Finished Season 6

It was okay. I’m watching kind of casually by now as the show only has so much to offer. I’m looking forward to the next and final season because I may remember some of that from when I watched it at the time.

Ready to keep going

I have season 6 and 7 now so hope to actually finish this in time for the Day Zero Project deadline.

Finished Season Five

This took ages. It wasn’t the best season. Sydney had her moments as did the season, but overall it wasn’t that special – certainly not compared to another show I’ve been getting through much quicker, Lost. The lack of botox is lovely though! Now I have no more Melrose Place to watch at the moment as the last two seasons aren’t on general sale, though I may source online rarities.

Finished Season Four

This one went by quickly! I enjoyed Peter’s return and Kimberly’s various storylines. Hated Richard, and Billy was at his worst too. There was really too much partner swapping between the ‘good’ characters this season and everyone claimed to be in love awfully quickly. But there were lots of classic Melrose moments including Brooke’s death in the pool and Sydney’s dream of being led to the gas chamber with Jane.

Finished Season Three

I didn’t like it as much as the first two, there were plenty of stories that just went on and on and ended up disappointing – like Jo’s baby being given up for adoption. It built up to a really great climax though with Kimberly blowing up the complex!

Two seasons down

I loved this show when it was on but rarely got to watch it.

I own and have seen the first two seasons on DVD and have the third ready to watch.

I was surprised that season one (the supposedly boring one, which prompted the studios to hire Heather Locklear to spice things up) was actually quite good – the drama was engaging and Jake and Jo’s relationship was a highlight.

In season two, the show finally becomes the over-the-top soapfest for which it was beloved. I spent the season hating Amanda while Michael soon became a villain too.

There are seven seasons in total.
