The Most Disappointing Series Finale

When Will goes to the World Cup and leaves me to fly solo for a week, what do I do?!



{Truthfully, I did many other things too but we’ll talk about those later}

More importantly, I also turn on the TV to some ridiculous marathon and let the noise entertain me while I paint. This weekend, I watched the last season of LOST, and it reminded me of how much I hated the end of that show. I was such a fan for so many years and kept watching in hopes that they would answer all the questions presented throughout the six-year run. I mean, if the writers had actually been able to tie everything together, that likely would have been a cinematic feat, no?! How awesome would that have been?!


But alas, they didn’t even come close and they wrote {what I consider to be} one of the worst series finales ever. Seriously, did any of the show ever matter?!

Naturally, this got me to thinking while I continued to paint everything in our house. How many TV series truly go out with a fizzle? Off the top of my head, I remember Roseanne from when I was young. We would occasionally watch the show and I remember being so sad about the ending! Wasn’t it some bizarre book that Roseanne was writing about her life?! I have also heard that Breaking Bad has an awful ending, but that one seems to be a 50/50 split: some people love it while others hate it. I’m only on season three so I can’t speak to that one! I know this is the last season of True Blood and I’m curious to see what they do with it. That show derailed from the books so long ago that I can’t even predict what will occur!


What show do you think has the absolute worst series finale?

    I am so with you! I hated the Lost Finale, I was left feeling so disappointed. That was it?! Really!? BOO

    I like the chairs!

      I feel like it was a cop out! They couldn’t tie together everything they threw at their audience for six years, so they just washed their hands and bailed. Sigh.

    Check out Mad Dogs. It was a British series, but I’m sure it’s available somewhere on the interweb. Absolutley briliant, then the finale leaves you with serious brainache trying to figure out what the hell just happened!

      Ha oh dear. The last time I had a brain ache was over Mulholland Drive; did you ever see that movie?!

    The How I Met Your Mother one was pretty dissatisfying, I didn’t hate it, but it was weird.

      It was such a let down. I was so mad about how HIMYM ended. 🙁

      Ironically, I’ve never really watched that show. I caught bits and pieces occasionally, but never was my thing. I heard about the finale though– people were angry!

    I despised the How I Met Your Mother series finale! Side note, I’m catching up on all my blogs for the past 2 weeks and WILL IS GOING TO WORLD CUP?! Mad jealous over here!!

    Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior had a terrible series finale as did Body of Proof. Granted neither show was very popular but I liked them and really wanted to see what would happen next.

    I can’t believe Will is at the World Cup. There have been some great games so far!

    What?!? Breaking Bad had an amazing ending. I wouldn’t have ended it any other way!

    Red chairs! Fancy. I want to see it all together.
