1. Spider-Man: The Animated Series
“It ends after the revelation that Mary Jane had been replaced by a clone made of Hydro-Man’s water some time ago. Unfortunately, it’s unstable, and she dissolves in Peter’s arms as he screams out. Madame Web shows up and tells Peter that they’re going to explore the multiverse to save the real Mary Jane. And then the show got canceled.”
2. My Name Is Earl
“It had a planned ending. The show was still pretty popular. The season ended early due to a writers’ strike on expectations it would return and it’s left at a cliffhanger.”
3. Killing Eve
“At first I would say Dexter but then I watched Killing Eve.”
“The author hated the finale so much that he’s writing another book.”
“It’s even worse when you find out that in the book they both live and get their happily ever after.”
“Killing Eve was incredibly bad, I thought Game of Thrones was bad but it’s practically Oscar material compared to Killing Eve’s ending, ugh.”
“So f*cking disappointing. Dexter too. To be fair, they both went downhill probably mid-series but I’m still upset I spent so much time invested to get a craptastic ending.”
“They should have ended it after the fire in Agrestic. Let it die a natural death.”
Someone is in denial… “Really? The Weeds season finale was when the suburb burned down, along with the main family’s home. The series ended with that episode. And it was such a great ending to a series that was completely finished and did not require any further episodes.”
5. Game of Thrones
“And who has a better story than Bran?”
Okay, prepare for a rant but it’s all very valid criticism.
“Several characters just absolutely had their character development completely thrown in the trash.
Varys, who was supposed to be one of the smartest (if not the smartest) men in Westeros, who always prioritized his own survival over the success of his plots because it allowed him to live to plot another day, suddenly starts making blatantly stupid decisions like openly speaking of treason to people close to Dany, writing and sending evidence of said treason via raven, and then ‘heroically’ sacrifices himself when confronted.
Jaime was a character with hidden depths who, through being broken down physically and mentally, eventually revealed the truth: That the honorless ‘kingslayer’ was, in fact, an exceptionally noble man that was willing to completely sacrifice his own honor and dignity to save innocent lives because it was the right thing to do. He is humbled and comes away stronger for it and realizes how truly terrible and toxic his sister really is and then suddenly, Season 8 rolls around and he ‘never cared for the people, innocent or otherwise’ and would rather die in Cersei’s arms just because D&D couldn’t figure out a fitting resolution for him.
Jon Snow, a man of honor like his father, spends one night banging Aunt Daenerys and suddenly the only two lines of dialog he knows how to speak are ‘I don’t want it’ and ‘she is m’queen.’ All of his heroic traits just vanish and he’s reduced to a sniveling, whining b*tch who would’ve been incinerated had Arya not killed the Night King while he was busy trying to shout a dragon to death because apparently, he thought he was playing f*cking Skyrim.
Even Cersei gets hit hard with this sh*t. Sure, she was always evil, but despite being petty and bad at scheming, most of her actions at least made some kind of sense. There was a motivation to them that you could understand, and then suddenly she’s pure evil, and everything she does she just does because it amuses her because she’s eeeeeeeeevil.
Also, f*ck Euron Greyjoy with a rusty fork. Some hammered MF from a pirate movie stumbled on set and they decided to just go with it. The guy existed in the last season solely to serve as a character foil to Jaime, and yet he’s so opposite Jaime that the fact that Cersei willingly f*cked him just goes to show how much of her character was tossed in the trash in favor of whatever the f*ck conflict he was supposed to create. He was put where they put him solely to confront Jaime and go ‘har har, f*cked your sister, let’s have a fight scene because the writers can’t write dialog anymore.'”
“You forgot Littlefinger, the most cunning and forward-thinking character of the entire show, who suddenly became a simpleton that hung around Winterfell and got offed just to give Sansa and Arya some lame sister-power moment (which wasn’t that necessary considering both of them had brutal revenge scenes with Frey and Ramsey.)
Varys, Tyrion, and Littlefinger really became morons in the last seasons.”
“They thought they were getting another season, but they were canceled instead, so it ends with Alf being captured by the government.”
“It’s a very well done (even as someone who doesn’t like murder mysteries) buddy cop show between Castle and Beckett which turns romantic. But there was lots of off-stage drama and the actress for Beckett (Stana Katic) was fired for Season 9. So they filmed the ending of Season 8 as a cliffhanger where Beckett was supposed to die. Fans hated it so badly that they changed it at the last minute. When Castle and Beckett were shot, they put a random montage of them living happily ever after for the last 2 minutes over top of them laying on the floor.
Not only was the last season bad in general, but who’s idea is it to kill off half of a buddy cop show? If there’s ever a sign that it’s time to end a show that’s a pretty good one. There’s no way that would’ve worked and the writers were delusional to think they would’ve been successful. And that delusion robbed viewers of a decent conclusion.”
8. The Man in the High Castle
“I loved this show right up until the end of the last episode where they ruined the whole thing.”
“The whole last season was trash but that ending was beyond bonkers.”
10. The Mentalist
“Not really the final episode but Red John’s reveal was bulls*it and everything after that I don’t remember.”
11. Pretty Little Liars
“Fans guessed who the villain was and the writers decided to change it to someone who never even existed until the last 5 episodes of a 7 season show.”
12. House of Cards
“Taking Kevin Spacey off the show was the right thing to do, but did they have to torpedo the story in the last season like that?”
