  • Not a good way to end the series.

    As much as I love Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends, and I like to see how shows end whether I like them or hate them, but this was a terrible way to say farewell to the series and had several plotholes. Now before you even watch this episode, you'll "Oh no Bloo's going to leave!", well actually he didn't, it was Mac who left, and Cheese moved in. In this episode, Mr. Herriman tells Bloo that Mac is moving and Bloo tries to spend as much time as possible with Mac to make it the greatest day he ever had in the home. Now to be fair I liked how Bloo wanted to show how much he cared for Mac in this episode, but that was pretty much the only redeeming value to the episode. The writing in this episode was poor and seems rushed, and I really hated how it ended. There wasn't that much funny moments in this episode and the humor felt lacking. The ending was horrible and it didn't feel much like a series finale. Mac didn't even move, he just went to a different apartment, and because of that he couldn't visit Foster's anymore. That is just stupid. If Mac just moved into a different room, in the same apartment building, he could have still seen Bloo and all the other imaginary friends! I felt really disappointed how this can pass as a series finale while its filled with several plotholes. Then Bloo just stood at the house and Cheese moved in. After that, the intro played in reversed and the credits just showed Bloo on top of Mac holding a sign that reads "Thanks For Watching". This so-called finale is a very bad way to end an awesome series. Nothing was explained either, such as to why Cheese moved in, and everything this episode consists of seems so rushed and incomplete. The only saving grace for this episode was that the episodes that aired back in 09 when this show was about to end is that those episodes felt pretty dull and lacked the charm the previous eps had, so maybe it was best for Craig to put Foster's to rest before the show would start to fall flat. The Thanksgiving TV Movie of the show, Destination Imagination, would've been a better way to end the series IMO. Even if you're a fan of this show, like me, do not see this episode at all, it was a terrible way to end the series. The writing is poor, there's several plotholes, the humor felt lacking, the ending was just atrocious, and overall this episode feels rushed and unplanned. But the sad part is that after this show ended, Craig quit his job at CN and there weren't many reruns of the series. I know it's on Boomerang but not everyone has that channel, and the DVD release box sets only consist of Seasons 1 and 2. Farewell Foster's, you will never be missed with your memorable characters and several funny moments to go around. This isn't the worst episode, but it's definitely not worth your time, even for a series finale.moreless
  • This is how you end an awesome series?!?!

    In this episode, You think Bloo's gonna leave when you first hear about it and first watch it. Bloo didn't leave, Mac did. Actually he didn't move, he just to another apartment and Cheese finally moved into Fosters. This is why I hate it when good shows have terrible endings. Craig was a genius on Powerpuff Girls and Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends, Both had terrible endings. Mr. Harrimen tells Bloo that Mac has to move, and since Bloo and Mac were best friends, Bloo wanted to spend as much time with Mac as he can on his last day. I liked that Bloo wanted to show how much he loves Mac and how much he's gonna miss him, but that's the only good thing about this episode. What sucks is that after this episode Craig left his job here at Cartoon Network so this is the last show on Cartoon Network that Craig worked for. And even worse, there are no reruns, Seriously Cartoon Network (I guess they should now call themselves Craptoon Nitwork for hiring stupid Stuart Snyder as the new president of their channel and causing huge trouble for this channel). They need to pay attention more to their rating slips. Fosters Home For Imaginary Friends got 8.9/10. And they need to show reruns, although they do show reruns on Boomerang only Saturday nights from 8-9. You need Cable to get that channel.



    Anyways this was torture! I cannot believe they had to make such a terrible series finale for one of the greatest cartoons of all time. If Mac moved to a different apartment in the same building, he could still see Bloo and the other Imaginary Friends. They really need to bring this series back! If not then please make a spinoff of cheese! Or whatever. Just bring this series back! And also The Powerpuff Girls and the other classic shows. Don't waste your time with this episode. Overall Grade: (2.5/10) D-moreless

    I used to watch Foster's Home, and while I was not a huge fan of it, I did find it entertaining at times. When I first watched the show I always wondered how they would end it. I figured it would be Bloo, or Mac, leaving forever. When I heard about this episode, "Goodbye to Bloo" I figured Mac was leaving forever, and it would be a sad, fitting, and well-written finale. Was it?



    First off, in some ways it did feel like the end to the show. The numerous call backs to past episodes, like when Bloo is trying to think of stuff he and Mac haven't done. The absolute ending, with the house being erased. These felt like the show was ending. I liked it. Mac and Bloo have done a lot since Bloo came to Foster's and it was a nice call back to different stuff they've done.



    But the ending… what? Nothing really happened. The ending didn't have an ending feel. Maybe a season finale, but not the series finale. Throughout the entire episode, everyone thought Mac was leaving forever. OK, this is good. But then at the end, it turns out that he was moving to a different room in the apartment they live in? What? I don't get why the show just does not continue. Was it canceled? This is not the finale I was expecting. It didn't seem like a finale to the show.



    Was it funny? Yea; Mac thinking Frankie will kiss him, "Let's jump the shark!" the call backs to previous episodes… so in the humor department this was fine. But the ending… it didn't feel like an ending. It just didn't. I wish they'd make more episodes to give the show a better ending feel. But that won't happen. So, we're stuck with this. Is this the worst finale ever? No, but it certainly isn't one of the better ones I have seen. Grade- C+ or so. Average feel. Shame. I was really hoping we'd end with a sad, tearful ending. Oh well, can't have everything you want.moreless
  • A big disapointment.

    Okay,this is the worst ending of a show of all time.When you hear a title like Goodbye to Bloo,you're like"Oh My God!Bloo's gonna leave?!".But what you get turns out to be the worst season finale of all time.Bloo never left at all.Instead,Mac never moved.He moved in the next apartment and Cheese moved in.Wow.Just wow.Craig had a job to make a lot of good episodes,but instead,he losed it and made a terrible finale.This is the worst episode of Fosters of all time.It's worse than Everybody Knows Its Bendy.I really hated it.It was supposed to be sadand should've had a lot of flashbacks,but what we get is something that made a terrible ending.A REALLY terrible one.moreless
