Most recently, Pretty Little Liars. They kept us in suspense for 7 long seasons only to have it end the way it did. I was more mad than disappointed. LOL

We gave up on it after about 5 years.

Who was the "badguy" in the end?

House M.D. - Didn't see it first run, only on the season's repeat. Maybe I waited too long and expected too much.

The King Of Queens
- Nice that they brought back lots of the supporting cast, but for one negative, they were cruel to the Holly character.
Doug offers to help her out by offering her a room in his now empty house, then tells her he's taking Spence in instead so she can't stay...what about the office or the room downstairs, one of them will still be empty!? I know, it's only a TV show...

Seinfeld
- never watched/a fan of the show until syndication/DVD release.

The last season seemed to be grasping.

I too am guessing they were trying to right all the wrong things they did to innocent people throughout the series, via the ending.

If that was the exit they chose to take, it could have been a little funnier.


The Mary Tyler Moore Show - Loved the ending (and still love the show) for decades, though it now makes absolutely no sense regarding who got fired and who didn't, other then the shock/wow "let's do something different/I didn't expect that" factor.

The huddling together "walk to the Kleenex box" scene was touted as being a spontaneous improv-bit, but was actually lifted from the "Dick Van Dyke Show's" Ghost Of A. Chantz episode...spontaneously, I'm guessing.

Prison Break. The way the series ended during its original run saw its main character Michael Scofield die in the process of breaking his love interest Sara out of prison. I can't think of too many shows where the main character dies. It also was not a fitting ending for Michael considering all that he gave up and all that he did on the show.

The Office.
Once they sold to Sabre, the whole thing was garbage.

Oh, good one.. Yeah.. that was horribly disappointing. That wasn't intended to be the final episode, but when they were cancelled, they smooshed it to be the finale.

I won't go that far. There were some good ones.. Parallels, the one where Worf kept 'sliding' between universes was one of my favorites. Probably doesn't count, but "First Contact" (the movie, not the episode.. Doesn't count likely because it was a movie) was really done well.

Even worse on Quantum Leap, as I recall. They were normally showing it on Tuesday night but changed to Wednesday night for that finale. So if you weren't in any "circuit" that followed the network closely, you missed it!......and I did.

The Original Star Trek series just ended. No mention of "this is the end" or anything.
