I agree it was a lot less complete than the rest of the series.

Well, if people were speculating during the first season that the characters were dead, then they were wrong. The majority of characters weren't technically dead until the final season. I'm surprised some people still do not understand that.

Spoiler
The mom has barely any presence in the final season. Instead of wasting it on filler, it should have focused on Ted and Tracy's relationship by having them meet at an earlier point in the season.

Having Col. Henry Blake die in a plane crash after discharge was one of the greatest television moments. It was designed to show that war is totally indiscriminate - that someone who was a carefree as Blake and was given the great opportunity to return home wasn't immune to the wrath of war.

We see the other characters as they had been before it fell off the tracks, and she says ...I don't know what I took but I had this wierd dream. You were .... And you were, and so on. And it just seemed so real.

So she took a nap and slipped off into an alternate universe, then went back to her regular one when she woke up?
Wasn't Felicity by chance??

She did fall asleep (because she got sick right before Noel's wedding) and dreamed that she had chosen Noel at the beginning of college senior year rather than Ben, and the whole dream sequence was What Would Have Been. Of course, she messes with the space-time continuum, because Noel ends up dying in the fire in one of the college buildings he had saved her from, etc. etc...... but then she wakes up.

Sigh.... I really wish she had ended up with Noel. They were so cute together. Ben was so wishy-washy, like not deciding until senior year that he wanted to be pre-med???

I loved that show because I was spending a lot of time in NYC doing stuff for school, so I could relate to being from out of the area and winding up there. When WE started running the reruns several years ago I stocked up on tapes and recorded the whole show because I couldn't afford to buy the DVD sets.

I got into Boston Public and that ended up the same way. No series finale, no explanation.... just a string of episodes halfway through what became the last season, and it was gone.

Are you kidding???? I watched that show from the middle of the 2nd season, and the finale was very satisfying. House and Wilson on bikes heading out for the unknown. The ending was very much in fitting with House's character.

I thought they wrapped up Downton Abbey nicely, though. Almost too nicely, everything tied up with a perty bow.
I though the way Hawkeye finally lost it, that all his jokes had finally stopped masking the pain inside, and he himself is a patient. This is the last scene of the road he was on. Honestly, I do remember someone died, but who I don't remember.

I was okay with the way Downton ended. It brought them to the next door, into the new world the war created and the new changes in society. If you use the real 'Downton' it still had a lot of history to go. It works too, as the family had already taken the first steps into embrasing the new age and surviving. The house is owned by a family now who have taken care to restore the house back to its glory, but lived in the current age, running a collection of business including renting a room for the night in the house and even selling their fruit preserves made from trees on the estate.

I did too. You could ask why, with the island big enough to see, that the search had never found the plane. Or why nobody at all had found them. I wonder if the ones who died in the crash were those who had already made peace with life and could accept death. In the end, the 'survivors' find it for themselves and can leave. Even the dog.

It turns out its really about the transition of the soul from life to death. Big stuff there.

Third Watch, for the show being about first responders in New York and having 9/11 happen during this run and having story lines dealing with that day and the clean up. To the finale along with the where all the characters were heading in the future they had Sergeant Cruz go out as a suicide bomber to kill some random drug lord
