I thought Battlestar Galactica had a decent (but not great) ending. However, while I've met people in real life who agree with me, I seem to be the only one on the internet who feels that way.

Lost's ending had me regretting all the hours I spent on that show.

Newhart's second series, the one with the hotel in Vermont, had possibly the best series ender ever.

Cheers was consistently good: it went downhill a bit, but never fell off a cliff/ jumped the shark.

The ending of The Wire was OK but a little disappointing: the way everything ended on a cycle, with old characters moving off and new replacements moving in, was tidy in a way that seemed against the spirit of the show.

I think the ending of The Sopranos was brilliant.

I've been told that Six Feet Under is worth watching simply for the ending. Still haven't got more than a few episodes through the first season, however.

Oh, back in scifi land (which may not be to your taste): Deep Space Nine progresses and wraps up pretty well, but it suffers from having too many episodes in each season.

Each season of SoA has represented 1 Act of the play. So the magic number 5 should be all she rode. I knew Jacks wasn't going to kill Clay while he was laid up in the hospital (Now might I do it pat, now he is praying.) Also, think about where Jacks goes to read John's manuscript. Easily my favorite show on TV.
OK, to clarify I hated how they got out of it, the CIA/US govt thing is just a little overused, but after Fast and Furious quite prescient. It's overall a strong series. I quite like how Clay is succumbing to the same thing the Irish MC got killed for.

Lost, I want my life back.

Cheers, fantastic series

I really need to watch the Sopranos, just have never gotten the chance.

If you mean series finale, then look no further than Arrested Development. Usually I'm not a huge fan of Jason Bateman but even he was tolerable there.

I'm no psychologist, but I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that a guy who calls himself King James and has his initials and "Vivat Rex" -- Latin for "Long live the king" -- on his custom-made Nike jacket, and has CHOSEN 1 tattooed across his back and WITNESS tattooed on one calf and HISTORY on the other calf might have a big ego. It is an ego borne of insecurity, and this is why he left for Miami in the first place: He wanted things to be easier. He wanted Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh at his side and South Beach a short drive away. That is the fundamental disconnect between James and Cleveland fans. They gave up on easy a long time ago.
