TV leaves a special impact on the viewer, sometimes more than movies.

It's because we live with these characters.

We take several journeys with them, not just a quick two hour ride.

That's why the finales are so special.

They can complete us or leave us broken for life.

Let's discuss the good.


Redditor KvK_07wanted to discuss some of the best endings to television shows we love.

They asked:

"Which show had a proper satisfying ending?"

My favorite endings for my shows? The list is long. But The Golden Girls & Buffy are up there.

"Cheers."

"Sorry, we’re closed."

"Ok. So the end itself was good but in the final episode they never once said NORM and it just hurts me a little when I think about it."

Onward Story

"Avatar, The Last Airbender."

"Love how they continued the story in The Search and The Promise comics though. I know there are more Avatar comics but I haven’t gotten around to reading those yet. Plus it was recently announced that Avatar Studios’ first project would be an animated movie about Aang and the others as young adults. We’ll probably be seeing him and Zuko build Republic City."

Genius

"The Good Place."

"I came to say the exact same thing - I absolutely adored this show and and while I’m sad it’s over I’m also so glad they ended it when they did instead of letting it go on for too long and ruining the show."

"I was told over and over to 'just watch the show for the ending.' From lots of people. So I hesitantly did so, and was like 'Yeah this is okay, but not mind blowing or anything. It's cool.'

"But holy s**t. That ending is the best ending to a TV show that's ever been made, I think.Everyone was 100% right. It was worth it. It's hard to explain without watching the show. But they did it flawlessly.I think about that show's ending all the time."

A Few Issues

"Star Trek: The Next Generation."

TheriousMind101

"I liked where they left it with Picard's development - but me and my partner recoiled in horror seeing Q appear. By far our worst part of the series, such an OTT obnoxious character, with lazy storytelling. Loved the series as a whole, but to have Q end it seemed like a punch in the gut. He seemed like growing pains of the first season but just had to come back lol."

Life is Over

"Six Feet Under is yet to be topped."

"It really was such a great and satisfying ending."

I can't even think about Six Feet Under without tears.

"Fresh Prince of Bel Air. The way the cast said good bye to each other in the empty mansion to how Will turns out the lights at the end of the episode. Just an amazing series."

This War is Over

"M A S H."

Toes14

"Absolutely. As a young child in the beginning of the 1980s I distinctly recall hearing the theme melody late at night when the TV was airing reruns and sometimes catching a glimpse of the intro.That melancholic tune just touched me in ways I didn’t understand as a 4 yr old."

"When I got a bit older I was flipping through the channels and suddenly there it was: the theme melody that I had moved me when I was so little. I had stumbled upon one of the many reruns that would air for 20-40 yrs.I was a European kid growing up in the 80s and 90s."

"I didn’t know anything about the Korean War. But the show really showed the horrors, depravity and injustice of war no matter who is doing the fighting. And it did so in a way that mixed humor with tragedy without making light of the tragedy.It was brilliant.I must have seen all episodes by now. I have a terrible memory for books, movies and shows but the last episode will stay with me forever."

Too Soon

"The Sopranos. I know what I said."

DrOliverReeder

"I know what they were trying to do there and I agree that it is brilliant once you actually analyze what happened and what led up to it, but that takes hindsight and rewinding the episode and rewatching it once, maybe twice. But on the first, cold viewing, I think it was a teeny bit TOO clever and kind of toyed with the audience."

Forget 9

"Scrubs. Before anyone says it, the '9th season”'(Scrubs: Med School) is 100% a spin-off. I don’t care that they tried to staple it to the original series, that was a stupid move to ride the ratings. It was entirely meant to be and written as a spin-off and you cannot convince me otherwise."

Dan*uckingSchneider

"I still get a lump in my throat when I see JD take that final walk down that hallway, seeing the faces of patients and other loved ones that passed on during his tenure, all of them wishing him well on the next step of his journey. When I retire I always imagine I'll do the same... seeing customers and co-workers I lost over the decades as I take that final walk to the front doors."

"Fleabag."

"Same same. I wished it could have gone on only because I enjoyed it so much, but the final season was beautiful and perfect and I cried so much during the final episode."

All great choices. I love you Fleabag.

America is quite a place.

There is so much to see, perhaps too much.

And as much as there is to see there is a ton not to see.

Just like any country and continent, there are skippable places.

And skippable isn't a bad thing.

People Share The Most Insane Lies Their Significant Other Ever Told Them

It's never fun to be lied to, particularly by your significant other.

Sometimes we discover that they were lying to us in order to surprise us for our birthday or anniversary, making the dishonesty easily forgiven.

In other instances, however, their lies were all to cover up something much less celebratory.

For better or worse, some people's partners are very convincing liars.

Others however are simply unable to keep a secret, and their stories or explanations to cover things up only make things worse.

Getting struck by lighting, winning the lottery, meeting someone else with your exact name who also shares your birthday.

For better or worse, the likelihood of any of these things happening to you is incredibly small.

And yet, there are still a handful of lucky, or unlucky, people who have experienced one, or all, of the above.

Even if the odds are against us by a significant margin, some people will go through an experience which they would never in a million years dream would happen to them.

Leaving them with quite some stories to tell.
