Top 5 Finales

I stole this particular topic from Tara even though I’ve been doing Top 5 lists forever and a day. These finales are the ones that made the biggest impact on me. I love lists, can you tell? I also love tv, so here we go.

5. Sex and the City – This was not my favorite ending but it was one of the more memorable for me. I only got 6 seasons out of this show and I cannot express how much I loved this show. I still regularly watch the show in repeats and a part of me still wants to be Carrie Bradshaw with my sex column living in Manhattan. But having Carrie come back to her friends, Miranda finding peace, Charlotte getting a baby and Samantha getting her orgasm back all was as it should be. Oh and we finally found out Big’s real name and that was the cherry on the sundae.

4. Six Feet Under – The last season was a roller coaster in itself with Nate dying several episodes before the end, I was not prepared for that and insisted it was all a joke or something. But the last episode was amazing as we watched everyone die, one by one. Since it was a show about death and about life, it was just the way it should go.

3. Felicity – I was a huge fan of this show but I was also an enemy, I even stopped watching it for about a season or so. I was Felicity/Noel fan and if you watched the show you know that being a FAN (Felicity and Noel) means you are constantly crushed. Still, the ending was touching and again, I cried and cried and cried. Especially the “hey” montage because that really just summed it up.

2. Life Goes On – Ok, I guess this list is for shows that made me cry because this one made me bawl and scream at the gods for being so cruel to me. You named him Jessie? Corkey lived happily ever after and yes…the dog finally got his food. That’s beautiful.

1. Friends – Never have I cried so much at an ending! I thought I was safe through the whole finale, tear free…until they left to get some coffee and the screen went black. I think a part of my life ended at that very moment, my heart may have stopped. It was by far the best ending ever, I couldn’t have asked for better. I’m going to go cry again ok? šŸ™


Have you watched the video yet? No? Go do it, it’s so rare I post a real homemade video.

    I think I only saw the Friends finale. I didn’t cry though. I’m a hard guy, you know. Tough as nails.

    Friends did not make me cry at all. I disliked that finale immensely.

    I never saw the one for Life Goes On, but ya, I would’ve bawled too!

    My favourite finale is Road to Avonlea. I cried for days over that one!

    Fab – Oh I know it.

    Avi – I wouldn’t expect any less, but I would hope you’d see my video from yesterday :whosnext:

    Jen – How could you dislike it? It was perfect!

    I agree with most of your choices. Except I didn’t watch Life Goes On (I dont’ think) and only saw some of Six Feet Under. No cable šŸ™

    I actually never saw the finale of any of those. I didn’t watch the Friends one because I want to (still) pretend it never ended.

    cheri – The Six Feet Under one was really good.

    TMP – I feel your pain. I still miss Rachel and Ross and like to believe they live in some apartment in New York with Emma and are very happy :heart:

    I absolutely loved Friends, but that wasn’t my favorite finale either. It was a little too perfect, you know?

    And man, I loved Six Feet Under.

    I do too. That is why I never watched the finale. All these years I dream they are together raising Emma.

    (Phew, I am glad that I am not the only one… thanks!!!)

    CRAP! I didn’t know that about six feet under. I need to go rent the seasons, if they are out. When I got off the road, I missed the episodes since I only got HBO in hotel rooms. And some other channels too that we won’t discuss or else I will have to kill you.

    Amanda – I need to watch the Six Feet Under one again.

    TMP – We can dream together.

    TheAbsurdist – I believe they are all out.

    Brenna – You need to, I think it was great.
