Best:

  • The Wire 
  • Breaking Bad
  • Sopranos (hated it first time)
  • Game of Thrones (probably minority here)

Worst:

  • Dexter
  • TrueBlood
  • 2.5 Men
  • Seinfeld (more of a meh ending than bad)

Best-

The Office

Parks and Rec

Friday Night Lights

Worst-

Big Bang Theory-a show that was one of the funniest shows in history for the first 2-3 seasons, REALLY got bad near the end and the finale wasn't good at all.

I am not a series person, but I remember from college and all my friends were into it. But, doesn't the worst list always begin with -- Lost?

Of a few series that I've watched more recently.

Great:

The Wire

Good:

Boardwalk Empire

Narcos

Bad:

Game of Thrones

Tales from the Crypt (a fucking lame-ass faux-horror take on 3 Little Pigs that was animated)

I was in college when Cheers ended. I actually liked the last episode even though the series had jumped the shark a couple of years before.  

Seinfeld was bad.  Bad ending to a great, great show.

Lost is a top 3 all time show for me. It was a meh ending but I was still satisfied with it if that makes any sense.

I forget how The Wire ends. I've only watched the series once, and it's top 3 for me, but I can't place the finale. Needs a rewatch.

I remember being really upset because I was thinking something went wrong with my TV at the very end.

Game 7 of the 1997 and 2016 World Series.   Terrible finales.

Game 7 2016 NBA finals, though.

Looking back, G7 2016 WS (and blowing the lead) is going to kill me. But at the time, I simply couldn’t be as upset as I was because of what the Cavs had done. 2015 NBA, 95/97 WS, 2007 ALCS, all hurt more to me. 2016 is probably the worst Cleveland loss if we are being honest, because of 3-1, it was just tough to be as upset because of LeBron and Co.

I reluctantly found myself thinking that way, too.

I don't think anything can top HIMYM...it would take real effort to have a worse finale than that.

I can’t believe Larry and Jerry didn’t just do a regular episode and wrap it up somehow in the last act. Kind of crazy to think about knowing what we know about Larry David now.
