HBO (ended 2005)
|I didn't watch this show while it was on. I'm a registered nurse and I see more than my share of death in my line of work, so the last thing I want to do is sit and watch a show about mortuaries, LOL |
Anyway, as with all series that end, I do try to watch the final episode.
I was very impressed by this series finale. I've never seen one like it. It actually gave closure in that you got to see what their lives and deaths were like.
I still don't regret not having watched the show, because from what I saw in that one episode, it was pretty depressing, but the finale was top notch in my opinion. I would like to see more shows wind up their series like that.
I just finished the series this weekend. I was watching it via netflix. I love that company! I was expecting a lot out of that last episode. It had been built up by some friends who had finished watching it a long time ago. They even made me come over and watch it with them. It was us and another friend who hadn't seen any of the show. If anyone would have come into the room while we were watching that episode, they would have thought we had ALL gone insane. It exceeded my expectations exponentially, and as I said before, I was expecting a lot.
I have forever been a loyal Joss Whedon fan. Give me anything from the Verse and I am happy. I must say however, that this series finale tops anything Joss has done. It will forever hold a place in my heart. I am still loyal to Joss, and he is still my favorite writer/creator/etc. but I don't think anything can top that episode. WOW! I watched late Friday night, it is now Tuesday, and I still can't get it out of my head. This is definitely on my top 10 of shows. I will miss it dearly.
Sorry I haven't come to visit the site sooner, but having been behind on watching the series I wanted to avoid any and all spoilers. I plan on going through the board and catching up, so sorry if I just lurk for a bit. I will try and post more when I have more of a feel for the place.
