The Series Finale and the Difficulty of Satisfying Fans

The late and great James Gandolfini in the final episode of HBO’s The Sopranos

Why are series finales so hard to do in the right way? It seems like a weird question. A show can run at a near perfect level of quality for several years; but then it can piss fans off beyond belief with their final episodes. Why does that happen? This entire post is happening because of a series of conversations I have had with several people over the last few weeks. I’ve asked them what some of their favorite finales were and why they liked or hated specific ones.

Let me just start out by saying that I am a huge How I Met Your Mother fan. I have watched it since it first aired and I haven’t missed an episode. It is a brilliant comedy on the CBS network. When this show first started out, everyone wondered how a story about a man meeting his future wife could run past one season. And then we kind of got a feel for the structure of the show. It worked on a high scale, mostly due to the chemistry of all five main characters. But now it is in it’s final season; season nine. And I know so many fans that already jumped off the viewing party because of its length. Is this the main problem with How I Met Your Mother? Has it just been around too long? Continue reading
