There’s nothing better than a satisfying ending. Tell me about your favorites!
+ Stargate SG-1. The series finale episode “Unending” worked well for me. The story itself wasn’t anything special but entertaining enough… but most of all, I got the very strong feeling over the episode that this isn’t the end. That these characters will go on to further adventures and everything will continue as normal and we just don’t get get to see it. That really worked for me! In my mind, “Unending” is the real end of SG-1, and the two movies that followed actually happened before the “Unending”, never mind the airing order.
+ LOST. The end of LOST is very satisfying to me. All of it, the entire series, really is very satisfying to me. It’s cohesive story from start to finish. I get the same feeling watching the last stretch of episodes as I do when I read a really good book that been a long, adventurous but a satisfying read. I almost never get that feeling from movies/tv shows but I often get it from books and I get it from LOST so the series has a special place in my heart.
I can’t think of other properties that stand out the same way these two do, but I’m sure there are some!
