I'd vote for Alf.

The whole premise of the show's run was that the family needed to keep him a secret or government agents would kill him and dissect him. The last episode had those agents showing up at the door and the series ending - pretty harsh for a sit com.

Oh wow, I had forgotten that is how Alf ended... I must have blanked out that memory from my childhood.

NuBSG. (spoiler alert)

(The Ron Moore Battlestar Galactica)

The whole ending, The chief breaking whats her names neck and destroying the peace treaty, the crappie CGi cylons for the big final battle, matey out of Quantum leap shooting himself, Earth being populated with early hominids the Colonials abandoning their technology. Starbuck vanishing......
Super awful!
A shocking end to a mediocre series.

Long live original BSG!

Not thrilled with the way Weeds ended.

I wasn't thrilled with the way "Weeds" kept going for roughly 4 years after it had lost it's basic mojo for telling compelling stories... It tried hard to recapture things but every twist it threw in just seemed to make things worse.

Good point. I think it declined rapidly when Celia left the show. (I just like watching Nancy every week ;) )

Though I did misspeak by saying they showed up at the door, here's the last minute of the series - comedy gold...

Yeah, "Quantum Leap's" ending was a real bummer. I also didn't like the way "The Sopranos" ended either (was Tony wacked or what?). Generally speaking, most show endings leave a great deal to be desired IMO.
Yeah the Sopranos disappointed me to greatly, and whats with the way they just end an episode it just cuts to black lmao. Its like okay i guess that ones over

COME WITH ME. OVERWHELMING POWER AND MADNESS AWAIT

THAT IS NOT DEAD WHICH CAN ETERNAL LIE AND WITH STRANGE AEONS EVEN DEATH MAY DIE

Firefly was a great show. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0303461/  It had it all,... great CG animations, witty dialogue the quirky premises and settings was great. The characters in the story were also interesting.  

It was axed after eleven of the fourteen produced episodes were aired.

I have no idea why. :angry:

(SPOILER ALERT) If you've not seen Firefly or serenity just go and watch them and don't read this post.

Firefly was cancelled though. Joss Whedon did wrap it up with the movie Serenity and I thought he did a good job.
Serenity is one of the best Sci-Fi movies of the last decade, for all the reasons you outline above.
I thought it was a shame that Joss kills off Wash and Book, and of course much of the hinted at 'back stories' never gets explained, but for a show that was cancelled after 10 episodes aired, I think we got llucky with the movie.
The TV show is a true gem. Joss' best TV work by a wide, wide margin. The Movie Serenity is a classic.

And I never get tired of watching River kick butt!

I absolutely loved everything about that show, including the ending. This may speak more about me than anything else, but I actually didn't see the ending coming. Awesome sci fi.

I couldnt get into the original. Too cheesy. It reminds me of the original 'V'.

*Gasp* Wash out your mouth with soap! Thats just crazy talk ;)

I've got one of the original spacesuits from the 'Fire in Space' episode, some smaller original props and a full size Centurion in the lounge.
I met most of the cast in Birmingham some years ago... I'm a little bit of a fan.

I just recently saw this scene in YouTube. It's from a Turkish movie called ''Kareteci Kız 1973''. I don't know, if it's the end of the movie, but i'd like to share it with you, because it's a related topic. It's so pourly acted, that i don't know, if i should laugh at it or cry...

That was terrible! :lol:   It makes you think that if they shot fewer movies and more directors the world would be better off...

I know it's not a TV show, but the ending of the movie The Mist made me wanna punch a baby.

Jesus Christ - Matthew 28:18-20 said:

"All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age."
