  1. I hated the way some of these ended but not all of them. Loved both the ending of MASH and Sopranos and haven’t seen many of the others to opine. I loathed (and still resent) how Angel ended. Quantum Leap’s was also frustrating. I disagree with the Cheers one because thought the ending was adequate. Not necessarily brilliant but it worked. Apathetic towards the endings for Sex and the City and Seinfeld. I’d become disenchanted with the latter and thought the former was inevitable and predictable. I notice the list doesn’t include shows that were canceled and, as a result, didn’t have a true final episode. It makes sense and I’m glad you made that editorial choice. No reason to judge a show’s last episode when nobody knew it would be the final one, after all.

    Are you going to make a best list? You may have done so already. If so, don’t be shy about directing me to the post. (And if I’ve already read and commented on it, then just blame my poor memory because I do forget a lot of things.)

    • MASH I haven’t seen in a long time. Didn’t like the first half, IIRC.
      Sopranos I was annoyed by for a few moments, but I really like. I think I felt what it was like to be Tony for the first time. Not knowing what was going to happen next…
      Angel, I agree. It was a needlessly open ending.
      I disagree on Quantum Leap. I hate that it appears on so many worst lists. People focus on the last words on secret and not the fact that it’s his choice. It’s sad, but heroic.
      Haven’t seen S&thC’s ending. Well, bits of it, but not most of the series.
      Seinfeld, I disliked because it sort of said that the audience were bad people for liking the show.
      I didn’t really make any choices here, it’s based on the 2 previous lists. I’m glad that most of those did, as you say, make the right choice and not include cancelled shows (unless they knew they were cancelled). There was one “Worst” list who ripped into a couple of shows, even after acknowledging that they were cancelled which really seemed unfair.
