Series finales: Dexter

I didn’t care for the Dexter finale last night. It was such a clever and well written show, I have no idea what happened to the finale but it seemed that the writers just phoned it in.

How do series finales in general rate with you? Have you loved one in particular? If you watch Dexter, what did you think?

    I never saw Dexter; it may not be accessible from my tv package.

    Finales — if a show I love is ending, I shall be particular about the ending. (Don’t leave me up in the air, but don’t extend when there’s no story left.) The last episode of Numb3rs was pretty good. There wasn’t enough substance to produce another season, so they pretty well just closed the open storylines, like Charlie and Amira’s wedding.

    I must’ve missed the closing of Numb3rs – don’t remember that one. Maybe I can find it OnDemand.

    Anyhow, the only series finale that really ended things that I can remember was M*A*S*H. We did just watch the ending of Burn Notice, but I was glad for it to end, and didn’t really care that much.

      Yes, the M*A*S*H finale was good. It was so long ago, I was still working for the Red Cross.

      Ha! I’ve been waiting a year for Burn Notice to end! I thought last season was the final, but oops, I was mistaken. I watched half of this season “just because” and stopped about 6 or 7 episodes ago. What a bunch of over-actors. I couldn’t handle it anymore!

    Well, I had Dexter set to record on Tuesday, so I had to go find it OnDemand and just watched it. I disagree completely. I thought the ending was just perfect. And I won’t say any more about it until I am sure that anybody else who watches the show has seen it and had a chance to comment. But maybe I will email you about it.

    I’d forgotten the one on Newhart – it was the best!

    Indigo, I agree on Burn Notice. We just decided to watch it all. Surely won’t be watching any reruns.

    I don’t watch Dexter. But Cheers had a realy great finale. Seinfeld was good. The Sopranos was pretty epic. The very best was probably The Shield, though. I am looking forward to Breaking Bad. I don’t want it to end, but am so excited to see the final standoff that has to be coming.
