    I would have to say M*A*S*H - Goodbye, Farewell, and Amen. (And even though MASH is somewhat considered to be a comedy - it was really a very dramatic show).

    I agree that M*A*S*H is the best one. But Star Trek Deep Space Nine's ten part finale does come very close.

    The finales or the shows in general?

    I thought that Friends, Buffy & Angel's series finals never compared to their previous season finals. The Charmed season 7 final (which was supposed to be the series final was very good). Tru Calling never had a series final because it was cancelled at the start of season 2. A better series final for Buffy would have been the season 5 final and the 100th episode "The Gift".

    Thirds Watches series finale (goodbye to camelot)where the 55th precinct is fired upon & the way srg Cruz took out the bad guys by blowing herself (because she had cancer)along with them was a brilliant way to end it.

    BUT I STILL MISS IT

    Not the best, but definitely the most notorious:


    Newhart


    St. Elsewhere


    And I know I'm really showing my age here, but I like the ending of the last episode of The Waltons, when Earl Hamner says goodnight instead of the cast members.

    I watch a hell of a lot of television and I'm yet to find a show which has ended in a way I've really enjoyed.


    Buffy and Angel are my favourite shows of all time, but I didn't like the finals so much, especially Angel's


    Yes! Charmed's seventh season final should have been its last, it was so good.


    Tru Calling never really got a series final, which is a pity, it was just starting to get good, wish it had at least gone for another 13 episodes.


    Got to say Friends is probably the closest one I've come to being happy with, although I've read a lot of stuff online that complains that it was a lacklustre and unimaginative end to a show long past its used by date (an opinion I don't agree with). I guess most series finales go for sentimentality and happy endings which is probably why I haven't loved so many, as sentimentality and happy endings makes for boring television.

    I'm not sure why everyone is bashing the finale of Buffy so much. If you take the last arc, pretty much from the appearance of Caleb onward, it was a pretty good wrap up. Though I do have to agree with the person who said the 5th season finale was probably a better finale, somber yet conclusive. Angel on the other hand... yeah that just disappointed me.


    Too be honest, I tend to have such high expectations of series finales that a solid majority of them land flat for me. I really wanted to love the series finales of Stargate SG-1 and Atlantis but the SG-1 finale was more of a placeholder for the movie Ark of Truth and the Atlantis finale was a last minute rushed concept.


    If I really had to point to a few finales:


    Wings - It had this great rounded out feeling since it kinda mirrored the series premiere and in the end you get that warm fuzzy conclusive feeling.


    Alias - While part of it seemed rushed, I just love how every character got what they deserved in the end. It had a very solid, this is the end of the story but life continues feeling. Sloane's conclusion was just epic.

    Lost had a pretty awesome and satisfying ending.

    well not many has a good ending but i got to say:


    Charmed.


    even though the last season was kind of a drag -in the bored-waiting-for-it-to-end kinda way- but i gotta say its ending was great, i liked how they showed us in the end how peaceful and calm their lives have become.


    i also liked robin hood's ending. i love when a show know its limits and ending it while its still considered good. also home improvement had a GREAT finale, i still remember how exciting it was. and to make the reviling of his finished hot-rod is brilliant.

    Best finale ever? Six Feet Under. I still cry every time I run across it.


    Friends was also good, for me. It had just enough closure and just enough foreshadowing.
