    I want to know if the show has a proper ending with closure and stuff.

    It has a great ending that completes the series, and offers closure. It's not the type to leave you "guessing", per say.



    The only bad thing about this is that the show had ended.


    I'd say this was one of the best crime dramas on TV at the time, and is probably one of my favorite shows of all time. Sad to see it go.

    It was certainly ended by the shows producers and not cancelled. I was very pleased with the ending, it certainly fit with the rest of the show.

    The show was on the verge of being canceled after the third season aired, due to poor ratings. And because of the uncertainty of renewal, the writers wrote for closure at the end of season three, and it ties up a storyline that began in the pilot episode. Thankfully, they got renewed two years later and finished with two more excellent seasons.
