becomes close friends with Flo and Vera

two other waitresses eventually flew

left for spin-off series and a few other

characters came and went

the show's ratings went up and down and

then Beca sure didn't end you two laws

of a fanbase brother loss of interest on

the part of Linda Levin who felt that

the show had lived out its life the

series ended with Mel selling the diner
