I have this thing about finishing tv shows, or should I say, not finishing. Especially, if I think they’re a masterpiece.
To me watching a good show like, Lost, Breaking Bad, Sherlock, Luther or Banshee. Something, I find to be… WOW. I usually regret watching the final Eps. It’s usually a let down.
Then I think about Dexter’s final season. To me was it was terrible. It was slow and I knew it was the final eps. I think that’s part of the reason why I didn’t like it, because I knew it was ending. That’s why I didn’t/couldn’t watch the final eps.
I talked to people about the last eps of Dexter. They told me everything that happened in the series finale. After hearing the ending, it sounds kinda…lackluster. So honestly, I’m glad I didn’t watch it. The show is still a masterpiece in my eyes, minus the horrible ending.
This problem is more mine than anyone else’s. It’s just a huge let down, to watch a show that has a anticlimactic ending. Perhaps I expect more or I think more should happen. I have this problem with other shows that I’ve re-watched.
I rewatch tv shows on Netflix, or DVD all the time. I rewatch shows like, Futurama, Bob’s Burgers, Friends, Archer, The Walking Dead and many others. Yet, I never rewatch the last eps. It would be too much to say goodbye to those characters.
That’s my problem, I know. I have a problem letting go. Isn’t it more extravagant to think, these stories are still going on? By ignoring the ending? Especially, if you know, you won’t like the ending?
