|Quoting EA CO AS (Thread starter):|
From my perspective, I truly believe this was one of the finest series finales ever televised, and the writers, cast and crew should be congratulated on a job well-done.
Thoughts on this?
The finale was very well done. I thought that either it would be Michael and Charley who died, leaving Madeline alone and very depressed or that Michael would have been driven completely crazy and gone permanently over to the 'dark side'. I also expected him to become much more sadistic.
I note that the ending left room for some kind of spin off featuring Sam (and maybe Jessie). Although I generally dislike spinoffs, I think this could actually work since Sam is such a dynamic character (obviously my favorite).
In general I think the last few seasons haven't been as good as the first ones. Each episode was much too focused on Michael's activities with the CIA
and had little time for the smaller stories. In the first few seasons nearly every episode mainly consisted of smaller, more personal, stories (the team tries to help someone by fixing an injustice) aswell as some underlying plot that ties it all together. In the last season particularly, the program was far too Michael centric. And we never learned much at all about James and Sonya's organisation other than that it is powerful, well financed, not a fan of the CIA
and supposedly evil/bad.
Very sad that its over.
