supernatural should have ended at swan song and i will die on that hill
@liviwintergirl, and then be brought back to life for another season
@liviwintergirl, while it was the perfect ending, I don't know. Charlie wasn't introduced until season 7 and she was my favorite side character. Not to mention the fleshing out of Crowley, who quickly became my favorite character. Sure, some episodes weren't great, but the later seasons had Dog Dean Afternoon and Fan Fiction, 2 of my favorite episodes. But I respect your opinion and understand it.
@liviwintergirl, while I agree, we would not have scoobynatural if it did
@liviwintergirl, I have been saying that for years
@liviwintergirl, Scoobynatural alone invalidates your argument.
Like many others, I used to really enjoy The Walking Dead. Now I just look at with disdain
@Sterling M Archer, it went from every season having hope...to a never ending depression olympics.
@Sterling M Archer, the governor absolutely ruined it for me
@Sterling M Archer, my dad and i used to watch it every time it came out. We stopped after the prison fell.
@Sterling M Archer, If Scott gimple hadn’t screwed up and went totally mad with power in season 8, no one would say this. The comics were loved and they went on forever.
@Sterling M Archer, I still watch and love it.
@Sterling M Archer, it’s still going?
@Hot Coffee, I wouldn’t know
@Yup Im Drunk, people been saying this since season 3 or 4
@Sterling M Archer, I lost track at the point when they blew the bridge up. Rick might or might not have died - I’m still not sure - and I think there was a helicopter, randomly…. I dunno, I just gave up. Is it still going?
@Nellybert , Rick is still alive. He was taken by Jadis in a helicopter. It's still going, but next season will be It's last. But it's leading to a Carol and Daryl spinoff for some reason
@Mattizzle9, There are two spin-offs already, aren’t there? Fear The Walking Dead, and one that’s basically teen-angst in the apocalypse?
Maybe they thought that a Carol/Daryl one might not suck like the others?
@Nellybert , yep, Fear and The World Beyond. People actually like Fear nowadays
@Sterling M Archer, uh yeah the same people that still follow their pages and threads to this day and feel the need to complain about how dead the show they “stopped watching” is.
Fairy Oddparents is a prime example of this.
I disagree. If a story has a sense of purpose and overarching plan that have the points they want to hit, then make the seasons and achieve that. Kinda like game of thrones up to season 7.
But if you're making crap up as you go along without any clear direction (got season 8, star wars new trilogy) then itll just die a horrid death.
@Tentastic, well yes, if it was planned to be a long running show from the start and is well written throughout then the length is fine if not appreciated. Of course this works best with either heavily plot driven shows or shows with a single plot thread running through individual stories.
But if a show is inherently episodic then it’s better for it to die while it’s still good, rather than keep running well past its prime (Looking at you, Fairly Odd Parents)
Though a show that is short, well written, and doesn’t do any more than it needs to can potentially be more impactful (Over the Garden Wall is a fantastic example of this)
Breaking Bad had it right, left us wanting more and never overstayed it's welcome.
@fettman1138, until El Camino...
@Banetersaurus Rex, Yeah we don't speak of that...
Still want more Firefly.
@Mag3rPayne, i came here to say exactly this, also that the next season of the expanse is supposed to be the last one makes me a little upset, especially being as the authors of the books said that there is still a lot of story after that.
@Cave Dweller, one piece
@Hot Coffee, bleach
That’s why anything made by shinichiro watanabe is great and belongs in the annals of history
*Laughs in one piece*
@Ray213, but Oda is doing it well to be fair
The comics were out long before the show started, and the show has done a wonderful job of re-telling them. The Walking Dead is fantastic.
The office and spongebob. They died looooong ago. But burned oh so bright
Trying telling the networks that
Spongebob, Family Guy, Fairly Oddparents
I strongly recommend Travelers (one L) on Netflix. It’s about time travellers from the future trying to avert the disaster(s) that befell mankind, and it’s got three solid seasons before coming to a pretty good conclusion that ties up enough loose ends to be satisfying but leaves enough unexplained to leave you thinking about it.
8/10 tv show in my opinion
Just to give an example of a good show that knew when to end.
Also Gravity Falls on Disney+. Two seasons and done.
You may be right, but I swear by my pretty floral bonnet, I will disagree with you.
The X Files could have ended its original run two, maybe three seasons earlier, and it would have been better.
