OK and I'm going to start the bar pretty high here.
My Lovely Mrs made me watch the whole of Lost.
Which had an ending so bad, so awful, so phone it in and skate on by...

So my first vote goes to LOST, what a pile of carp.

The series ending that left me the most disappointed was "Quantum Leap"... For years the main character was thrown willy-nilly throughout time helping others to have happy lives... and in the end, it is revealed that he can never go home - the one thing he wanted the most...

Great series - bad ending... It wasn't illogical (within the frame work of the series), it wasn't poorly written or acted, just severely disappointing....

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.

I stopped watching LOST ,after the first season . I knew better. All of my LOST watching friends were beyond disappointed with the end,which I don't even know,because I didn't even want to know.
People b****ed on facebook for weeks after the finale .


Miss me?

Two of my friends were Quantum Leap fiends . They've ne er mentioned the end to me .I will have to ask.
I also never watched the sopranos . It's on my netflix q ,so I can just watch it start to finish .
People say the end was done o it left you hanging,but is considered iconic somehow....

I actually liked the finale episode of Quantum Leap.

Star Trek Enterprise. Never got to the end. Killed of halfway through and then they put TNG people in with Enterprise people to steal the last episode. Bleh.

X Files - after nine seasons of a few misses but mostly hits, it just kind of fizzled out.

It wasn't Bakula's fault... I blame the writers/director...  Heck I could have written a better end for the series than they did - and I have no talent...

I really liked Enterprise...Didn't care much for the last episode... I thought what they did to 'Trip' was totally pointless...

The main problem with that series was that they made the alien races way too advanced and powerful... and then for the most part they are never heard from again in any of the other series...
The Galaxy was way too populated with advanced peoples...

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.

I will admit, I liked Friends. But they might as well have called it "Ross and Rachel." The last few episodes should have been more about the new babies Monica and Chandler have and their happy future and all that nicey-nice.  But what do we get? Ross and Rachel in the sack...I could be just fussy but that kind of ruined it for me.
