re: Name some of your Favorite TV Series Finale Episodes
I'm one of the few (who will admit it) who liked the Seinfeld finale.

Family Ties, Cheers and MTMoore were all very good.
MASH was OK but the show had tailed off.

Series finales didn't really become a thing until the late 70s, so is there any doubt the greatest finale would have been Hogans Heroes? The series wasn't renewed so it just ended with a normal episode. Imagine the Allied tanks driving up to the Stalag 13 gate and Hogan showing Klink, Burkhalter and Hogstetter their operation, then sending everybody but Schultz to allied prisoner camps.

re: Name some of your Favorite TV Series Finale Episodes
Why did I get three downvotes for Scrubs and Buffy??



If I wanted downvotes I would have stated my opinion that while Justified is one of my favorite shows of all time, I found the finale just ok and a bit overrated


The last scene with Raylan and Boyd is great though

The true Scrubs series finale was the most perfect I have ever seen. From wrapping up story to even the soundtrack.


Another favorite of mine is Star Trek Next Generation.




Agree with both and almost included TNG in my post

I'm one of the few that the Seinfeld finale has grown on since it first came on. I enjoy it now.



Yeah I didn’t mind it at all when it aired. I thought it worked pretty well. Haven’t watched in years though so will have to revisit


Saw a couple of mentions of The Wonder Years. So good. I remember being legit saddened to hear that Jack passes away not long after the finale. Wanted him to enjoy his golden years



One I’ll mention that I’m actually not sure if people agree with or not is Firefly.

I know everyone considers it one of the worst cancellations of all time, and rightfully so, but I actually think Joss did a fantastic job, likely on the fly once it became clear it was on the chopping block, of giving it a true ending.

I thought it was great as a series finale, with the potential to lead into more stories if given the opportunity. Love Serenity and need more movies

Fringe has one of the all-time best finale episodes, IMO.

Orphan Black was pretty good in that "everybody got theirs" good and bad.

Farscape if you count Peacekeeper Wars as the finale.

Was (and still am) a huge Hogan's Heroes fan. I've thought about what the series finale should have been. Would have been great.

This right here. What a gut punch that finale was. Holds up with repeat viewings, too.

The finale of The Office should be a case study in how you wrap up a series. It was perfect. Every character got closure. Even the ones you didn’t care to.

re: Name some of your Favorite TV Series Finale Episodes
For me, probably Mad Men.

Really wrapped up all the characters that were still around, some for better (Joan with her new business, Peggy and Stan together, Pete and Trudy back together/Pete working for Learjet, Roger in a content situation with Don's ex-mother-in-law) or worse (Betty resigned to her death).

The ending visually/experience wise was a an almost perfect cap on a series that took us almost perfectly through the 1960 to 1970.

And, of course, Don Draper finally comes to terms with (and embraces) who and what he is at the very end.

Loved the fact that shortly before the finale, you got that foreshadowing when the head of McCann Erickson is trying to assuage Don Draper's discomfort with the idea of working for the big firm with promises of working on the really big accounts, ending his list with "COCA - COLA".

re: Name some of your Favorite TV Series Finale Episodes
The Leftovers (although some didnt like it)
Parks and Rec
The Newsroom
The Wire
Eastbound and Down

The greatest final scene, not necessarily the episode, is from Black Sails. I honestly dont know how you could end a show better than that. Fantastic.
