Day 22 - Favorite series finale

I honestly don’t know. It seems to me my favourite shows either end badly or never get to end properly at all. Now, if it meant series as I usually say it - as in ‘season’ - I’d be happier and could probably rattle off a couple (BSG series 1 comes to mind, as does the conclusion to Psych’s third and fourth series), but this is an American meme, so I know it doesn’t.

Ooh. OOOH! Just thought of one. Blackadder Goes Forth, for the amazing emotional impact it astonishingly invokes. You’re there, amusedly watching the same old Blackadder, tittering at foolish wit and stock characters, and then suddenly it becomes this all too real, all too gut-punching force. It’s brilliantly constructed and subtley done and so very unexpected (it shouldn’t be, you know it’s coming, you just don’t expect it to hurt.) Yes. Masterful.
