Does anyone else feel that the series finale was severely rushed?

    I don't know. The finale just wasn't anywhere near as satisfying as I wanted it to be. So many plotlines left up in the air.

    In my opinion, the finale should have spanned 3 episodes, at least (preferrably 4).

    Herro Mcfry!

    It's because TFA was supposed to continue on and the open plot lines would've been continued in S4. If you wanna see a rushed finish go watch the end of BW. Now if you'll excuse me I'ma gonna go cry in my pillow....

    I definitely feel that the series finale was rushed. It could have had a part 3 that would better do it justice... no, scratch that... I would like to see a "movie" that goes into the aftermath of the series OR a fourth season that would bring the series to a more satisfying conclusion.

    Yes. It was. but... i'm waiting till botcon (and until then attacking CN by rallying fans against them... and giving them the feedback boards address....hehehe) hopefully, we will get a zombified TFA. (i can dream. do not take away my ability to dream (and throw tantrums... Metalocolypse))

    And the sad thing is, Beast Wars ended about 10 years ago... I find it ironic that 10 years later another fantastic show was cut down in its prime =/

    NOT REALLY if you consider that the writers finished the job without knowing it was the last.

    Yepperz. It would seem less rushed if there was another season.

    To me the only rushed feeling I got was the very little falling action after the climax.

    Yes. And that's why it didn't to justice to the season which was written almost to perfection.

    Its it rushed, some many characters' fate not known, Prowl's death felt ignored... the only thing we got from his team mates is Optimus Prime saying ''No...'' and putting him in a coffin while they are celebrating on Cybertron and Sentinel Prime getting the credit for capturing Blitzwing, Sunstorm and Ramjet.

    They did the same thing for Jazz in the movie but the difference is Prowl had character development for us to like and know him while Movie Jazz had 5 lines while trying to act cool.

    I thought I was the only one who thought the last episode was too open ended. Now I don't feel so alone. I still haven't broke it to my kid the show's not coming back.

    It was totally rushed. Still a solid episode, but rushed for sure.

    Great for a cliffhanger, filled with empty holes for an last show.

    I also felt that that the two previous seasons had finales that had many things that made me say "What a finale!". Here it was just the battle between Optimus and Megs for me.
