We shouldn't have to simply "accept" the ending. I watched this show in hopes my questions find answers. All I found was a cheesy drama that used sci-fi as a hook. The ending wasn't all that terrible, but could it have been better. Hell yea

I don't know how you can come to that conclusion. Just because the show ends with everyone being lovey dovey and we get an attempt at a conclusion means all the holes in the show can be put aside?

Yeah, exactly. I feel like a lot of people would have been happy with pretty much *any* ending because the ending itself wasn't important to them. For me, an ambiguous ending where "just accept it" was the explanation was disappointing. We got hosed.

The Sopranos finale was probably the best finale I have ever seen. (6ft Under finale was excellent as well...much better than the show itself.) The Wire finale was good, but slightly disappointing given how great the show was...if they were just going for a great finale, they should have ended after Season 4.
The Lost finale sucked....I cannot remember being more frustrated with a TV show than I am right now.

I thought LOST finale blew Sopranos finale out of the water, but that's mostly based on my expectations for each one. Not really a fair fight.

The Wire finale doesn't come close to the Lost finale, and this isn't me being reactionary after seeing the Lost finale.

I'm a HUGE Wire fan, one of the only hour longs that could ever be considered one of the best ever on TV, but The Wire finale was only just a great coda, a nice wrap-up of what we had seen for the previous couple of years. There's no way it can compare to what the Lost finale just put up.

Is there any particular reason why some of the greatest shows ever (Seinfeld, Sopranos, Lost, et al) have ended so unsatisfying or controversially? These shows are so powerful that the writers can do anything they want. We end up spending all of this time intellectually blue-balled debating these things, rather than walk away with a satisfying, "ahhhhh." One time?

They weren't dead the entire time. Everything that happened, happened. Everything on the island really happened.

Okay, I'm not up to date on tv history.

What I'm reading on the net is that people liked the Newhart series ending as a dream thing.

I seem to recall Roseanne ending in a similar way and people hated it.

What was the difference?

Because people don't want them to end.
