Worst TV Series Finales
The Top Ten
How I Met Your Mother had always been a light-hearted show, with some romantic themes. Once in a while there was a more dramatic episode. When someone had died, or when someone hears bad news. These episodes, while different from others, didn't seem too out of place. There was always that storyline and the comedy.
Not all of the jokes were funny, and there was a laugh track, but the show had good intentions. Yet, for some reason, when the show went into the sixth season, the quality took a steep drop.
Only few episodes were even remotely funny. By Season Seven, the ratings dropped too. New, unwanted characters were being introduced. People stopped watching, even hardcore fans. The writers were in a frenzy, and didn't know what to do.
I'm going rate each of the enormous show's nine seasons, using my own values. Oh, and remember. Don't forget to take my opinion with a grain of salt. If you liked a season I didn't, it doesn't make you dumb, it just means we don't ...more
Thank you for making us believe that there truly aren't any second chances in life! What a message to give of, that if you fall in love with someone who doesn't love you back, wait 25 years, you might get them back!
This was NOT a bad finale at all. There are a LOT of things people forget about this show.
First of all, whether you like it or not, Barney and Robin were NOT meant to be together, PERIOD. End of story. Make any argument you want, but that's the fact of the matter right there. Barney was never a commitment guy, but he became a better person with Robin to help him care for others rather than himselfBut his character development didn't go completely down the drain. Barney found the love of his life; his daughter Ellie. Barney had a very good ending. Second of all, one of the biggest lessons you'll learn from How I Met Your Mother is that life is not perfect. Life is no joy ride, and it doesn't go how you plan it. Life is short, and anyone could go away at any time, which is why I never had anything against Tracy's death. Third, the ending was NOT contradictory to the title of the show at all. The story of how Ted met his wife was still told. It was "How I Met Your Mother", not "How I ...more
Okay I watched this series a few years after it aired. And I unfortunately knew one major [Spoiler] going in: Ted eventually ends up with Robin.
I think this gives me a little different perspective on this series. Knowing this there were certain things I was expecting to happen. So of course, I didn't freak out at the ending.
I'm thinking that because certain fans didn't get the ending that they were hoping for (and perhaps also shipping for) I think it caused a knee-jerk negative reaction. Ever since then it seems like this Finale/Series has just been an easy target for criticism. It's pretty easy to nod in agreement with the crowd.
But why is it that easy for certain fans to dump all over the ending of a series that they claim to love? I have my problems with the Finale as well, but the events of the ending were not really far-fetched.
Barney and Robin were not a very stable couple, ever. They were both demonstrated to be highly dysfunctional people since ...more
This was So Stupid of an Ending for a Great Show!
This Episode Made the characters look like Bad People
What the Heck? :(
They WERE bad people, that's the point of the show. These were horrible, horrible people who we couldn't help but find hilarious. - truckturner
I'm still angry. Yes, the characters got resolutions, but the show was also about the island itself and we never got enough of an explanation about that. - truckturner
Trippy as HELL!
Everyone was dead except Hurly, who became "Keeper of the Island" and a couple others. It was their "Afterlife" experience? What
3 Words: WAY TOO CONFUSING!
#1 rule of finales: make it so it tells the viewers, "this is the final episode. There cannot be any more episodes." Think like How I Met Your Mother where the story ends, or iCarly where Carly moves away. Futurama was headed towards something like this, but the time button made it so none of the events in the finale ever happened. The episode really should have ended in a way that didn't say the episode can squeeze anywhere in the Futurama timeline.
Besides that, the episode itself was good on its own, but it was not very "series-finale"ish. It had plenty of nostalgia, and the time button concept was awesome, but even if the episode didn't end like it did, a GOOD series finale would wrap up more than 2 characters. It's nice that Fry and Leila married, but we all saw it coming, and besides, they could've and should've wrapped up the story for Farnsworth, Bender, Amy, Hermes, and Zoidberg.
What a wasted opportunity. (P.S. Maybe this one time, they could've used the full ...more
I hated this Finale I loved the show it's a Good thing The Show Came Back on Comedy Central
This Episode was Like The Rugrats & Miss Piggy Singing
BAD ENDING I HATED IT
This one was pretty Dumb
I mean I was hoping to see what The Family looked like
When they were Aliens
Season 8 was so dumb and it turned Dexter into kind of a whimp. He falls in love with some chick, and decides to fly to Argentina with her. Then Deb dies in a stupid way, and it ends with Dexter driving his boat into a hurricane tricking us into thinking he's dead before SURPRISE! Even though his boat was destroyed in the hurricane, he survived and fled to work with some logging company somewhere north, and the reason Dexter drove into the hurricane in the first place was because "he wanted to protect Hannah and Harry from himself." They took everything I loved about Dexter and flipped it up on its head, So dumb. - ChickenKing
Actually this is the finale episode but the real ending are the movie that been made in 2006
Why did terra had to forget everything that made me sad and mad beast boy was probaly depressed forever I wish they made a better ending that sucked
This was another Show I liked But It Might have been a good idea to focus This Episode on like Beaker or Gonzo but it focused instead on Johnny Fiama
I dare you to watch This Finale
Another Show I Didn't Like
Thank You Very Much for splitting up these
I loved this show, but it ended with a feeling of "We've been best friends for 10 years, but now we are moving 15 miles away, so toodle-oo! - Hajj
How the heck is a finale where every character dies due to wax fruit only at #16. - RalphBob
How is this not in the top ten? It's a finale where everyone DIES. On a KIDS' show. - PastelFlowers
I never liked M*A*S*H
Thank God It Ended!
My father was obbsessed with this show
I loved this show as a kid! But the finale wasn't a finale at all. There was no happy, sad, peaceful ending. It was just a longer episode. Michelle lost her memory, then got it back. :l
I really liked this Show
The End of it was actually a Little
You know the finale sucks when the main character shows up just for the last two minutes
Emma decided to give up her true love, Daniel and none of her friends remember his old life, except Emma, it ruined the story.
Emma decided to lose her true love, Daniel, yet he and her other friends forgot everything about the first time they met Emma.
They forgot everything including the first time they met Daniel, only Emma remembers Daniel. - nelsonerica
This Show is Garbage - kcianciulli
The most dissapointing finale ever. Period. Hands down, no comparasion, it's not as bad as Bionicle Stars, but it's definitely right there. - santibros2002
Good forget him anyway!
Thank god it stopped
I MISS THAT OCTOPUS SO MUCH! - Officialpen
That one character many people liked, leaving the group because her dad got a new job far away? That bit left too many UNANSWERED questions
The episode was just terrible the two biggest reasons being 1 They killed off Pops and 2. Mordecai did not marry Margaret. There were others reasons as well but these reasons are why I hate the finale of the show, shame on you J.G Quintel, shame on you.
WHY DID YOU HAVE TO END THIS SHOW
BAD FOX BAD!
Why do people like this show? This show is the worst show ever!
This should go off the list, that was a SEASON finale, the show is still running.
Alex never won the Family Wizard competition.
Which one because the recap of the show was horrible! Roseanne got to into polici way too much, and she began to be racist.
It didn't even have a finale, this should go off the list.
The ending to alf was horrid poor guy
Tom & Jerry decided to commit suicide in the last episode by tying themselves on a railroad, waiting to get run over by a train.
The show ended with Stefan (yup you heard it right STEFAN dying,no uh uh hell to the no
