Another thread that is running got me thinking about this. What's your favorite end of a TV series? Some shows get the chance to do a "finale" and some don't, probably for the better, actually. Personally, I think everybody should die when a show gets cancelled. But that's just ME.
So here goes, I have two...
From a Remembered Show: "Newhart" Bob gets hit in the head with a golf ball at the end of the show...fade to black...we hear Bob saying..."I've had the most terrible dream"...lights switch on, and he's in bed with Suzanne Pleshette, his wife "Emily" from his previous show, "The Bob Newhart Show"
From a Forgotten Show: "I Married Dora" Lame ABC comedy from 1987. Terrible show but a classic ending. It had one of the characters leaving the family to take a job in another country. He goes through the door to the plane, leaving the family in tears. He comes back a moment later. "what's wrong?", he is asked. "It was canceled," he replies. "What, the flight?" "No, our series!" At which point the camera pulls back, revealing the sets, lights and crew, and everyone turned and waved good-bye to the camera.
