Season Finale

Postby Isha » 06 Apr 2012, 09:53

This morning I thought about every TV series I have followed from pilot to finale and the only respectable series I found was Seinfield. It did not loose grip anywhere, ended fabulously and entertained all along.
Any other recommendations?

For dramas, I would highly recommend "The Wire" and "The Sopranos". And "Breaking Bad" is supposed to be consistently good, although I've only seen the first season.

Looks like I did not make myself clear :p

I am looking for a series which is good from Pilot to Finale! I have seen quite a few but only Seinfeld clears the criteria.

Most of the time, somewhere I loose interest. Take for example House. It was good one until they crapped all over it. Again, there are other good ones which get stopped in between. Like Cybill, Lie to me. Fringe is going good so far.

Series Finale. Season Finale are more or less OK for most. It is Series Finale which makes me feel like "why did I watch it so far"

Rome
The Wire

I think that's about it. Most series either crap out or keep going till they do crap out. HBO consistently seems to put out good television that starts and finishes strong.

Fringe has been cancelled btw. Shame, I really liked it though the story seems muddled.

The Sopranos
Six Feet Under
The Office (British)
Spartacus

Rome certainly didn't have a satisfying denouement, considering they ran out of money and couldn't do the third season.
