Although I enjoyed most of the "King of Queens" episodes, I hated, hated, hated the way they ended the series. The funny bickering became irritating and not-funny-at-all when Doug and Carrie started threatening divorce and going through with the adoption. I could have done without the last 6 or so episodes.

On the other hand, I thought the writers did an awesome job of wrapping everything up nicely on "Frasier". They gave the characters time to develop their final stories and it was a feel-good ending for everyone.

I loved how The O.C. ended. It was simple and sweet.

I hated how True Blood ended. I hated how the book ended and somehow the TV show managed to end even worse.

Best series ending for me was for the Mary Tyler Moore show.

I would like someone to explain to me (genuinely) why "How I Met Your Mother" is widely considered one of the worst series endings ever. I binged the show not too long ago and while the final season probably dragged longer than it should on I dont get the hate.

Series that ended well:

JUSTIFIED
THE SOPRANOS
FRASIER
MONK
CHUCK

All of them had a good ending, and ended when the shows were still at the top of their game.


Series that did not end well:

PUSHING DAISIES. Not the creators' fault. Blame the network.
WONDERFALLS. Ditto.
SPORTS NIGHT. Ditto.
ALIAS. Blame the creators on this one. Season 3 onward was a mess.
THE DEAD ZONE. The show just went on too long. The story came to its conclusion ... then kept going for two seasons.
HEROES. Season 1 was fun. Season 2 onward was a mess.
THE X-FILES. Last 3 seasons longer than it should have.

The best series ending was Justified. 6 Seasons and the show never had a bad season, a bad season finale or a bad series finale. First, it was a totally unexpected ending for 3 main characters in a violent show that foreshadowed the main character's (Deputy Marshal Raylan Givens) death with a gravestone for him already ready in his family's yard and a song heard at the end of every season except one, sung by different artists.

Here's one of the versions of that song. It has a bit of a long intro:

Can't rep you again, but I couldn't agree more! Thanks for the clip. Back in our Justified thread I predicted that we'd never again be talking about the series after a while--glad I was wrong! It's a classic now.

Because the show should have been called "How I Met Your Stepmother." For 9 years they kept Ted and Robing from actually falling in love just to wrap it all up in 60 minutes.

DEXTER was amazing... until the last episode. It sucked. (I won't spoil it by saying why for those of you who still might watch it)

I don't know how True Blood ended, couldn't continue watching after the 3rd season started. Also hated how the books ended.
