Of all finales, The Wire is my favorite. Just absolutely loved that show.

Good:
One Tree Hill... Granted the Season 4 finale was probably a much better finale because they thought the show was going to get cancelled but they had been shaping up a "Next Generation" for 2 whole seasons. Only negative was the lack of original cast members returning.

Greek... Given what was available to them they did a decent job. Would have been better to see the Juniors make it to their Senior years and graduate but marketing and viewership were so down there was no way they'd get enough time to do that. So the way it ended was acceptable. You're left to figure out how the next 3 semesters will go.



Terrible:
Malcolm in The Middle... This show felt like a new Seinfeld only through the eyes of a teenager in a dysfunctional family. I felt it was so underrated and because of this FOX just crapped all over it in it's final season pretty much rushing it out the gate. Ending just leaves you wanting more.

That 70s Show... Came out same year as MiTM. Ended same year as MiTM. Got about 90x the publicity as MiTM for it's final season despite the fact like 60% of the original cast was gone. Wasn't too much to care about when they finally entered the 80s.

Boy Meets World... It's not actually terrible... but rather it just feels rushed and not plausible. As ridiculous as some of the things were such as Mr. Feeney being there every year or Cory and Topanga ending up together forever it just kind of felt rushed that suddenly, Cory, Topanga, Shawn and Eric all were going to uproot themselves and move to New York after living in the Suburbs of/Center City Philadelphia all of their lives simply because Topanga got an INTERNSHIP. Not to mention all four of them were in their 2nd or 3rd year of college to do so while Jack and Rachel just join the piece corps simply because...

Other than Seinfeld and Friends I never really watched a show through it's original running enough to see it through from an early season to it's finale other than these shows.

Count me as one of the rare people who liked the Seinfeld finale. If any show was meant to go out with a middle finger, it was that one.

Seinfeld's finale was bad mostly because the 2nd half was virtually a clip show (filled with old cameos)

But before the Seinfeld finale was an actual clip show.

Thats why it was a little stale.

Oh the best series finale will always be THE SHIELD.

The entire last season is probably the best in television history. I can't think of any holes, anything I would have wanted different.

Absolutely perfect.


You are a smart man... I like you.

The Shield to me was the greatest series ever. The way it ended was just jaw dropping. I flipping hate Corrine with a passion. Such a great series.

I'm surprised anyone was still watching that.

haha i never understood that either. funny part is, they were acting like topanga was automatically going to get accepted into columbia without taking any tests or anything.

i mean i thought the jack and rachel thing was fine, but yea those 3 kids quitting college in their junior year and moving up and packing away made no sense.

o well that's tv for you Laughing

Best: Smallville. It only took 10 years to see him fly, but was worth it.

Worst: Quantum Leap. /end thread.

Honorable mention for worst: Angel.
