Following on from The disappointing end of Line of duty Which shows finished properly ?The Uk office was as near to perfect for me .
The Sheild and breaking bad were very good also

Breaking Bad. And even the film after didn’t ruin it.
The Wire.
24 was ok.

Other than that can’t think of anything. It’s almost a no win situation.

There are probably far more that ended badly or without a proper ending.

Alcatraz
Revolution
Ascension

All North American and canned before the end.

I thought the last series of the Wire was bonkers.
The McNulty storyline was nonsense. Brilliant TV other than that.
Loved Boardwalk Empire but thought the final series was rushed.

Shane's episode, which I think was the penultimate one, was incredible TV. Was thinking about it for days.

I remember in the final season of the Sopranos when Phil Leotardo gives his pissed off speech to Butchie, couldn't belive it when Chickentown by John Cooper Clarke started playing, incredibl choice of song.
That bloke's material just gets better and better .
Been brilliant to see him feature in a few irreverent quiz show's recently.

Some people hated the Sopranos ending. Personally I liked it. Echo Hill's thoughts on Breaking Bad and the movie. Better Call Saul has been excellent and that is coming to an end soon, looking forward to that. SOA had a decent ending.

Unforgotten was good.
Six Feet Under set the bar for best finale after 5 series.

I liked the end of LOD - more realistic than H being some unseen James bond villian.

I prefer better call Saul so far. The cinematography is incredible. It took breaking bad a couple of seasons to get up to that standard.

Yeah, was having this conversation with my nephew the other day and he convinced me, I do think it is probably better. The pacing, cinematography and performances have been pretty perfect so far.

I think it's generally easier for sitcoms to stick the landing than dramas. Catastrophe, The Office and Fleabag all good examples. Mad Men is the only prestige drama I can think of where I didn't feel a BIT let down.

Wanted to say this but you know. Blokes aren’t allowed to have watched Friends.
On the other hand I've never seen 'Friends" and I'm a gal.
I've not seen any of the other US series suggested on this thread either though.
Don't really see the appeal of US tv.
Sorry

I don’t really watch British stuff so opposite to you.

NOT SORRY
