The best TV Farewells and Finales of 2010

For anyone who watches TV regularly, it’s kind of sad when May arrives, that means you have to prepare to say goodbye to your favorite TV shows. It cuts a little deeper when you know they are not coming back. The only consolation is that you get to find out what happens to your favorite characters. 2010, was a sad one me, I said goodbye to two of my favorite shows of all time (COL: Crying Out Loud).Don’t worry about me, I will survive. Hope you don’t mind me sharing my thoughts on the best farewells and finales of 2010.

Farewells

24
Can you believe our hero is no longer coming back? To be totally honest, the eighth season wasn’t the best of all the series, but I think it should have got more credit than it did. The writers tried something new for Jack and I think we ought to give them that. What I loved about the season was the finale. I think they made the right choice by giving the relationship between Jack Bauer and Chloe O’Brien the touching closure it deserved. That scene was absolutely top notch. So I judge the shows farewell as one of my favorite bests. But I’m still pissed I wont get my weekly dose of Jack Baure.Damn it! 

Lost
What a journey Lost was, right? Even though through its course, it lost some viewers, that doesn’t change the fact that it was a great and innovative show. I have to admit, I’m one of the people who weren’t all that crazy about the finale, I think they could have done a little better with what they had. But overall, a great ride of extremely intense and addictive imaginative storytelling. I’m surely going to re-watch the entire six seasons on my Bluray disc and maybe find some other stuff I missed earlier.

Finales

Fringe
The season 2 finale for me was just EPIC! Fringe is one of the best shows on TV that nobody watches, except me of course. It really surprises me how so little people watch such a great show. The whole season was built up to reach the climate of the finale, and boy, did they do a great job. The episode was full of action, great dialogue and what every great season finale needs, a surprising and jaw breaking ending.

Breaking Bad
The season 3 finale is by far the best I’ve seen this year, hands down. I’ve never been as emotionally involved in a show as I am with this one. There is not much to say here since I don’t want to spoil it for anyone who hasn’t seen it yet. If you love a dramatically funny, suspenseful and breathe taking show, then you should watch Breaking Bad on AMC. You want be disappointed.   

Dexter
The only way to describe the season is two Emmy wins, two golden globes and other numerous nominations and wins. What makes Dexter one of the best shows (if not the best) is the writing. The fourth season is a perfect example of how great the show is. One thing only the best shows manage to achieve is the element of surprise and WTH moments. And they pulled it off brilliantly with the season finale (spoiler) killing off Dexter’s wife, Rita (what a surprise). I have to say it really got to me. And I was more surprise to find out the next day that I was not the only one. The only finales that had such impacts on me were 24, Breaking Bad and Prison Break: The Final Break.

So, you’ve got my take of what happened on TV this year. Which one was your favorite?
