Re: Does anyone feel like this about series finales ?

I kind of get that "lump in my throat" at the end of a series.  It's almost as though I'm losing people I know and will never see them again.  Silly isn't it?

I enjoyed the series finale of Homeland.

The weekly show of This is Us, generally brings a tear or two at the end of the episode.

I think I will have quite the crying session when the final episode airs..

I feel that way but only when it is something that I have watched and enjoyed for many years.  Dramas.  I don't get drawn into comedies.  I do indeed feel like I have lost dear friends or a world that I visited every week for years.

Overall, I'm usually disappointed with any series finale.  They get criticized if it's given a "happily ever after" send off, and you can't please everyone.

 

Thinking back, I can think of only two series that had excellent finales ....  IMO.   Those shows were MASH and Downton Abbey,

Doesn't happen often to me because so many series live way past their expiration date.

 

Not true with Breaking Bad however, I still think Walter White is alive, LOL

Many people hated the end of The Sopranos. I agree with you....best ending ever!

 

I think that the Sopranos is our twentieth century Shakespeare.
