John Krasinski used Sunday night’s episode of Some Good News to put the spotlight on viewers and look back at some of the most touching moments of his feel-good web series.
He’d asked his Twitter followers all week long to send in photos and videos of themselves delivering the weather report and good news and how they’ve been experiencing his show in general, teasing that the show would be taking a break.
After showing highlights from the previous eight episodes, he also delivered an emotional thank-you to all the people who’ve sent in submissions and been part of the show.
“I will never be able to properly articulate just how much this show has meant to me and what a tremendous honor it has been to share in it with all of you,” he said. “I have been blown away by all the messages I have received saying how joyful this show makes you, how uplifted and inspired you all can be, but I assure you all of the pleasure and all of the inspiration has been mine.”
He also referenced a recurring joke where he stands up at the end of each show, showing that he’s wearing shorts or some other piece of clothing that doesn’t match the jacket and tie he’s wearing.
Krasinski continued: “I told you from the very first episode I only deliver the good news, you are the good news. And that’s why every single week, if you can look past the goofy guy wearing half a suit, you’d see what resilience really looks like, what unbroken really means, and through witnessing each and every single act of kindness and generosity, you would see what the true definition of good really is.”
He ended the show by standing up and showing that, this week, he was actually wearing the bottom half of his suit to match the top half.
According to his YouTube channel, the show is “taking a break for now, but there is more to come! Stay tuned.” He added on Twitter: “Wow! Can’t believe we’re coming to episode 8 of 8! No words for how much these episodes have meant to me! BUT just because the show is taking a break doesn’t mean #SGN ever does! This week we look back at all that we’ve created…TOGETHER! So send me your favorite #SGN memories!”
Watch Sunday night’s episode below.
Saved the best for last! Episode 8 of @somegoodnews has to be my favorite because it celebrates the truth of what this show has always been. Never mine,always yours! There IS and ALWAYS WILL BE…good in the world! Thank you all! So long but not farewell! https://t.co/mEylhsDvic
