7 Series Finales Ranked from Worst to Best ...


Being a huge TV fanatic, series finales are pretty important to me.

I laugh over them, I cry over them, and sometimes I get embarrassingly angry with them.

Series finales can go very well or very bad, but no matter what, after it’s over, it’s over.2

That’s what we’re left with, and sometimes they’re not the greatest result.2

After watching what I believed to be one of the worst series finales of all-time (I won’t name any names… yet), I decided that ranking some of my favorite and least favorite series finales was necessary.

1. How I Met Your Mother

I think we can all agree that the How I Met Your Mother series finale was one of the worst series finales to grace our televisions in a while.

I’ve talked to seemingly hundreds of people about it, and only two really enjoyed it.

I don’t even know where to start with this travesty.2

Lily and Marshall had very little screen time, although they were pivotal parts of the show.

I’ve seen the episode more than once and can’t recall their ending.

Why did Barney need to have a child in order to change?

They seemed to detail his change pretty well before this when he married Robin!

I can’t decide if I’m more upset about Tracy’s passing or the fact that Ted and Robin ended up together.

Both were pretty traumatizing, in my opinion.

This series finale was a flaw on an otherwise perfect series.

2. That '70s Show

I, like most people my age, went through a That '70s Show obsession during my adolescence.2

I watched every episode numerous times.

Yet, this series finale was so strange that I’m having trouble remembering it.

I know that Eric and Kelso left for the season, which in my opinion made the show incredibly boring.

One of the few memorable parts of this entire episode was Eric and Donna’s reunion.2

One shining moment, to me at least, was that the episode ended on New Year’s Eve 1979, along with the '70s.
