I’m still scarred from the ending. I thought my TV broke.
Alright Sopranos fan, pour yourself a drink, set your TV to YouTube and read this. It's an incredible look at the last scene with deep background and research.
It turns the last episode from a let down to a masterpiece.
I haven’t really watched the show much, but I read earlier today that “cut to black” moment in the finale was actually the audience being murdered, and not Tony.
You’re better off just accepting the cut to black as simply a ‘void’ - by trying to find an answer you’re robbing the ending of multiple possibilities and complexities, into only having one. There’s a reason David Chase won’t comment on the meaning.
Bojack horseman s3 kinda ruined my year. Also every season
That show leaves a void literally as you're watching it. So so so good. But goddamn if it isn't rough to watch sometimes.
There's a scene in that show that literally triggered a panic attack for me. And yet when it was over, I still went and finished the episode/season. I'm either a glutton for punishment or the show is just that good.
I tried to share the show with my fiancee, but it triggered her anxiousness. It's a shame because it's so good and some of it is fucking hilarious. But when it became obvious that it was too much, i didn't push it on her.
I loved the quirkiness. And the music was right on the dot with the scenery. You can tell this was a dream come true for many of the cast and crew members.
No more of that serial killer:(
The last season was not very good. It was also weird to see Dexter as a lumberjack
Just started watching Dexter. Had no idea the "Surprise no Motherfucker" meme was Doakes. I died laughing when I heard it.
No more of that
serial killerlumberjack :(
Freaks and Geeks
That was a fantastic show. I'm still bitter that it didn't get at least a 2nd season.
Damn I thought I would never find it
A void that is only filled when I watch the series again, this is why I watch all 8 seasons every 2 years.
"Enjoy yourself, it's later than you think. Enjoy yourself while you're still in the pink" just the thought of that tune reminds me of the last episode and I feel the void calling
Still not over the end of Parks and rec. When she said goodbye to Anne Perkins 😭😭😭😭
Ann Perkins 👉😭👉
Avatar: The Last Airbender. This is why I appreciate the creators for Legend of Korra, the comics and even the upcoming live action show. I love that world and I want to see more of it.
The fanbase is still incredibly strong if not more so and also incredibly passionate about the series and all related works except for the unmentionable movie
Movie? What movie? I'm sure the Earth King would love to hear about it. In fact, the Earth King has invited you to Lake Laogai...
I am honored to accept his invitation.
It left a void but a beautiful void. It felt complete and satisfying. ATLA is such a damn good show.
Except for zuko's mom. That was just a void void.
Are the graphic novels any good?
They are. In chronological order:
The Promise- deals with the aftermath of the show, and the efforts of Avatar Aang, Fire Lord Zuko, and Earth King Kuei to maintain the peace. (Spoiler Alert: It Ain't Easy.)
The Search- Zuko gets a clue about his mother Ursa's whereabouts- and takes the Gaang and Azula along for the ride.
The Rift- Toph works through some family issues. Aang works through some personal issues.
Smoke and Shadow- Zuko has to deal with a plot in the Fire Nation.
North and South- Katara and Sokka go home to the Southern Water Tribe for quite possibly the first time since they left with Aang. Hakoda has a new girlfriend. Sokka and Katara have to deal with that and other things.
Imbalance- As what will become the United Republic is forming, conflict breaks out between benders and non-benders.
Turf Wars- post-LOK, a wealthy tycoon wants to use the new Spirit Portal as a tourist attraction. Avatar Korra objects. Also, Korra and Asami's blossoming relationship gets the development it should have gotten in the show.
Ruins of the Empire- Kuvira goes on trial for... doing nothing wrong.
Ruins of the Empire- Kuvira goes on trial for... doing nothing wrong.
This made me chuckle.
Angel, ended on a HUGE cliffhanger.
Cliffhanger aside, it also, based on usual binging patterns, concludes around 250 episodes in one of the better universes created. Buffy leaves a hole but you full it with angel. Once angel is done, you're out of luck.
As much as I was sad to see it end, I do kinda feel like the way it ended was incredibly fitting giving the overall theme of the show.
To be a true hero, you have to accept that the fight is never over, and decide to keep fighting the Good Fight anyway.
Particularly Fred/Illyria's arc.
Dont get me started on this show. Years later and I'm still pissed.
The reason it wasnt renewed was cause he went in and demanded an early renewal. Something the show had never gotten. He was denied.
Plans for the next season included Irelia realizing that Fred wasn't dead dead and Willow magicing her soul back into the body.
There was also a planned Episode where Angel and Spike crossdress.
There is a follow up comic series that starts at that big fight at the end of the show.
Fringe, Prison Break, Sons of Anarchy, Lost, Justified
Fringe was fantastic
Fringe was a great show. The old scientist. Walter I think? Was great.
John Noble is an amazing actor.
Lost. Lost. Lost.
Also Parks and Recreation.
P&R for sure, although the final episode was so satisfying. The characters are just so likable that I immediately missed "hanging out" with them.
One of the most satisfying series endings I've ever seen. Just "fuck it time jump to every characters happy ending". Brilliant.
Lost for me too. Being based in Italy, I used to download the latest episode the morning after it had aired in the US, then bring it to work on a USB flash drive to give it to my colleagues. One of them would download the translated subtitles that were also ready by the late morning, so we had some good chuckles out of replacing a few words here and there with the others none the wiser.
I also came here to say Lost. It's not even my favorite show, but for some reason every time I watch it, I just get this wave of melancholy that washes over me as I realize the show is going to end.
Yeah. For me it was the journeys, struggles and growth of the characters in unimaginable circumstances that I grew so attached to.
Watching parks and rec for the first time....this makes me worried. I'm already way too invested in the characters
It's worth it, and for me it's a show you don't have to wait long to watch again.
It also really nicely wraps up all the characters and has a nice sense of completion. I love P&R as well as the office but always thought Parks ended WAY better.
The last season of The Office stumbled because they tried to line up a spin-off ("The Farm") but it didn't get picked up. I did like the way they wrapped up the final episode, but they leaned far too heavily on the talking head segments. Parks and Rec moved further away from those and just...told the story.
This gives me hope as I was disappointed with the office ending. And nothing worse than being left disappointed by the ending of a series :(
I haven't seen a show better than LOST yet.
Should I watch it? It seems right up my alley but I keep hearing about how the ending sucks and there are no real answers in the show, which I’m not sure I can be ok with
Imo it depends on how uptight you are or if you can let a story be what it is. The story along the way was so insanely twisty turvey and left a ton unresolved but that's what the story was. The ending couldn't have been anything else than it was and if you take it for what it is, it's a good ride. Basically if you can accept it for what it is and tolerate many loose ends remaining loose along the way, the story is awesome and so are the characters. I hope this helps. For the record, I liked the ending.
Surprised its here on top. But 100% this, have rewatched it many times since trying to fill the void.
Jericho. So underrated.
I know! seriously WTF!?
For me the worst part was that it seemed to die a slow and painful death. After core cast-members started leaving it just became more and more depressing...
I actually really enjoyed seasons 5 and 6. I was afraid it would get dull, but I thought the story lines were fun right up to the end. And even though we lost some great characters, the new ones were delightful!
Finishing Community left me legitimately depressed for a few days.
Flash Forward. Cancelled just after one season and the guild strike in between.
And Scorpion. It was fun to consume and had Finch from American Pie and Katharine McPhee.
Im still salty as fuck about flash forward being cancelled. That 1 season was awesome.
flash forward was great!
My heart broke after they cancelled that show. I swore off new ABC programs because it seems like they cancel them all the time (i.e. i'm still mad about Better Off Ted).
I read the book Flash Forward was based on, and the show was actually better.
Malcolm In The Middle. The You Will Be President speech Lois gave to Malcom in the last episode is one of the best tv moments ever
Stargate-U, huge cliffhanger
Atlantis too! The others not so much
Man, I've been rewatching since it was put on prime again, and I got into watching cast q&a panels. The show has such a friendly and positive cast. The Chris Judge practical joke stories are great. And Michael Shanks explaining why the Zat is the worst scifi weapon ever is worth a watch.
No one knows it, but News Radio. It was so witty and sometimes totally overboard. Phil Hartman dying was a gigantic loss to the show, but I don't even think it was that that killed it. The way they pushed it around the timeslots was devastating.
News Radio was great, but anything with Phil Hartman was great. Every actor on that show was amazing and I think that trying to "keep up" with Hartman is what made everyone on top of their game during that series.
I really wanted more Deadwood, thankfully they're finally making that movie
Banshee. I loved the flavour of that show. Some of the most bad-ass action I've seen.
I've basically grown up with Adventure Time. I was 7, almost 8 when it started, and I have been watching since (almost) the beginning (started watching a week or two later, as I did with Regular Show, Gumball, and a few other CN shows). I definitely felt something leave me after the last episode ended since it didn't really set with me that it was ending until then. I was also really into Gravity Falls when it was on, and while I was really sad when it ended, I found a few other shows to fill that void.
Scrubs. It was one of the first shows that I really connected with a protagonist. J.D.'s constant inner dialogue and self doubt really hit home for me, still do honestly. Plus, the storylines were excellently done. They were grounded and realistic, they weren't afraid of tackling heavy issues. The "where do you think we are" reveal was gut wrenching, and unless you really paid attention, it came out of nowhere. Laverne's car accident was another great one. This is the only show that I ugly cried at the end, my god.
The office: I finally got around to watching it all 2 years ago. I got to the finale around the same time I was getting a new job and my best friends were graduating college and moving away. Andy and Creed's last lines really captured where I was at in life.
Honorable mention goes to iCarly because come on, if that finale doesn't hit you all up in the feels, youre probably dead.
My Name is Earl
Knowing that he never returned home was sad, he did so much good and deserved to go home.
It was sad but it was an ending I could live with although it created a paradox.
Fresh meat Friends Gavin and Stacey Inbetweeners How I met your mother Peep show
I now just have these shows on a continuous loop
Inbetweeners was great
Fresh Meat, for me. Partly because the characters felt so real that it was almost like saying goodbye to actual friends, and partly because it hit the nostalgia nerve for my student days, felt like leaving uni all over again.
Friends, for sure! And Breaking Bad
I want to down and up vote you. Fuck it, have an up vote for the dilemma.
Pretty much all of them. I feel so lost and like a part of me just ended then takes a while for me to find a new one just to repeat the process
Some, like Heroes, have the decency to make you happy it's gone by the time it limps out of existence.
Heroes didn’t survive the writers strike. Such a shame.
post series depression is an actual thing
Scream Queens was brilliant and only got two seasons yet they still crank out American Horror Story sausage every freaking year.
Terra Nova. One and done series.
Gravity falls, friends and fma:brotherhood, I swear I lost a part of me after finishing them
Scrubs, Chuck and Avatar: tla
Oh god chuck. What a horrible sad ending.
I've heard through the grapevine that Sarah was confirmed to get her memories back after the ending.
But yeah, the only show I've seen with an ending more disappointing with How I Met Your Mother.
Altered Carbon, so much build up and development thrown away at the end, then they tried to make it seem like there was still more to come with the loose ends.
Second season is inbound, no date yet. 8 episodes.
I really enjoyed that series. Wasn't sure at first but it really grew on me. Any plans for a second season?
O.C. The ending hit me in the feels
Regular show, man the ending still makes my die inside
futurama and adventure time
futurama because i had binged it and it left me in a state of "what now"
and adventure time because i watched it since it first came out when i was a kid and i just sat there like "damn."
Going to be adding Game of Thrones to this list in a few months.
I really hope they make a good ending for it. The most recent season was so short and rushed I feel like they won’t be able to endnit as well as I’d like
I just think to truly do it justice, they would have needed to wait for GRRM to finish the series before starting the show, giving it about 12 seasons, and an absurd budget...
Hunter x hunter theres nothing better than it
Nurse Jackie. Ugh. Still hurts.
Stargate. I haven't found a campy, feels trip, sometimes dark of a show. I miss SG1 and Atlantis.
Person of Interest! Fringe!
Also, unlike Breaking Bad's ending, 24's was just so unfair for the protagonist. And he never truly gets any true recognition for his actions. He went through things so bad that turning himself in for imprisonment actually puts a smile on his face.
Man...I tried to watch 24 a couple years ago and I couldn't get past the first episode. People seem to love it. Does it drop the bootlicking cheesiness at any point, or is that just generally the tone through-out?
It's definitely dated. Hard to watch today, but I was obsessed with it back then. It was different seeing a show that plays out in real time. If you watched all episodes in a row with commercials, about 24 real hours would've passed.
Looking back the first season is quite hard to watch but its definetly worth pushing through for the 12th to 24th episodes and Season 2 & 3...
I called it my seinhole and I tried lots of shows to fill it, but none could do it.
Avatar the last air bender
Daria (after finishing is it college yet)
Mostly the slice of life shows.
Legend of the Seeker - I loved those characters.
Breaking Bad, I'm not sure when I'm ever going to find another series that is as consistently amazing from start to finish.
Better call Saul helps fill the void
I really enjoy Better Call Saul, but I just feel like it's missing something that Breaking Bad had.
I'm not really sure that that something is either.
I understand what you mean. Breaking bad was something else. Idk I guess after being so invested in that show I wasn’t ready to leave that universe yet. Watching everything gradually get tied together has been enjoyable, but at the same time you can’t really replicate BB.
Lie To Me. Big reveal and then it got cancelled..
Grimm. That show was amazingly good through all seasons. The ending was good but... I want more!
Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.
I felt as though over the whole seven seasons, I'd grown to known these characters, who had been given constant character development, I'd seen their relationships with each other grow and evolve, and the station genuinely felt like a community of people who lived together and had been through some real shit by the end. Then it was over, in such a bittersweet way too.
Desperate Housewives. The show premiered whenever I was ten, and my mom and I watched it every Sunday. I still miss Wisteria Lane and my ladies so very deeply.
For me, it was How I Met Your Mother. In hindsight, the show wasn't really that great but I was in a pretty low place in my life at the height of it's popularity and I really connected with it during those tough days.
Thankfully that was years ago and I'm in a much better place now. Can't stand watching a single episode any more however, I guess I just grew past it?
I loved that show. Probably because when I started binging it on Netflix, I was in a low place, too, and just connected with it. I watched Season 6 when it premiered, having spent the summer binging and catching up. I was completely invested. And then, the Finale. And it sucked so bad. And I'm still mad.
Bloodline. The first two seasons were fantastic. Not sure what happened with season 3 but it is clear the plug was pulled and the producers were looking for the easiest way out. It could have had a great run.
Neon genisis left me pretty fucked
Neon Genesis Evangelion didn't just leave a void, it tore itself from your heart while it did.
I found the show at exactly the right time in my teens to most identify with the themes being thrown around about the human condition and making sense of the world as you gain more responsibility, and it's quite easy to become attached to the cast..
Those who have seen it or are fans already know the show has two endings, and neither provide much in the way of closure. The movie actually goes out of its way to tell you that NEEDING closure for this story is bullshit and to go outside and find something important to care about.
Stargate Universe, where they literally enter a void.
I finished all 5 main series of Star Trek a few years ago then slipped into the void.
The Orville really helps
I've heard it's different in a lot of ways but it carries the soul of Star Trek.
Best Star Trek since Voyager IMO. Sure there’s some Seth McFarland humor in there, but as someone who doesn’t care for family guy or his other shows I think it’s fun on the Orville. The stories can get at least as deep as the heaviest Star Trek ep and the humor breaks it up and shows they aren’t taking themselves too seriously. Def recommend it to any Star Trek fan
Generation Kill. Can anyone recommend anything similar to fill the void?
The Mist. I think it had such potential. Nobody else had faith in it.
I will NEVER get over Pushing Daisies’ cliffhanger. UGH.
SCANDAL I fell in love with the cast and the plot, it was a good ending but I still rewatch episodes regularly
Just finished K-ON, I’m devastated.
The Sopranos, especially the final scene.
The Wire, Deadwood, Deep Space Nine.
