    Ya know, I never did watch most of those shows, only two I did watch were Dinosaurs and Alf. But as a kid, I missed their final episodes...which apparently was a good thing because those are some screwed up ways to end a series. :lol

    Is it wrong to laugh at those endings?

    One other F***ed up moment I know of was MASH. One of the actors wanted to leave the show for a while. To make sure he never came back for bailing on them.. they blew up the helicopter with the character in it. Yeah never piss off the writers.

    One GREAT ending was Newhart. HILARIOUS!

    Only 7 and 6 were really soul crushing, the rest were just awful.

    Enterprise deserves to be on that list.

    I think he means, 6 and 7 are the only ones on that list that are "Soul-Crushing" Finales. Looking at that list, I agree.

    I mean, Dinosaurs ended on such a sad note. If I recall correctly it ended with the Baby asking what would happen to them, and it was sad to see the one character on that show who almost never was in low moods, seem so sad. I remember watching that and thought it was a very sad ending. Definately soul-crushing.

    I remember seeing the last episode of Dallas at the time, but I never watched any of the others aside from a couple of episodes of that Dinosaurs thing.

    As far as last episodes go, Blakes 7 and Zeta Gundam FTW.

    The Wonder Years cause Kevin and Winnie never got together. I cry every time I watch it.

    I remember watching the last episode of Dinosaurs. That episode was so sad (in a boo-hoo way)

    That is probably the BEST series finale ever.

    It wasn't so much to get him back for leaving. It just gave them an opportunity to really show how bad war was.

    Maybe, but it was a last minute change and considering the actor, and in fact the entire cast other then Alda, didn't know they were killing his character until they taped it says something about the motivation.

    Regardless I'm a fan of that particular scene because of its true to life feel. MASH was a great show partially because it mixed drama so well with comedy.

    That "David the Gnome" ending is pretty damn bizarre to boot.
