I really didn't want to say goodbye to this show, so I taped the finale and put off watching it until today.
I agree it looked a bit rushed, but probably not the fault of the producers.
It was nice to see a few of the older cast members return. I thought I'd cry buckets, but I was actually OK until the final shot of Bosco. I'm really gonna miss him. He's too great of a character to just fade away - maybe they could resurrect him on one of the Law & Order shows, like they did with Det. John Munch from Homicide: Life on the Street.
