I also remembered the end of Quatum Leap and I wasn't happy either. How could they say he never went home, what about his wife, or did the writers think we forgot about that. Then there was the end of Newhart, I don't care how many people praise this I hated being told this was all a dream the Robert Hartly from The Bob Newhart Show had, in other words the whole show never happened.. While we're on the subject of being told a show never happened although you watched it for years cared about the charactes I can also add to the list of disappointing endings St. Elsewhere.
But at least these were endings, I stil don't know what that was the NYPD Blue did for its final episode, because it didn't seem like one, not nostalgic about it. Also, the only thing that was remotely satisfying about the final Episode of the original Hawaii Five-O was that McGarrett finally brought Wo Fat to justice but were there any viewers left who cared at that point, since the whole cast was more or less changed by the twelfth season and the ratings reflected that.
