Supernatural is the only one that's done it right.
All the others were either:
- Boring (Heroes, Scrubs)
- Rehashing old stories (Scrubs, Supernatural)
- Killing off (literally or effectively) beloved characters (Numb3rs, Heroes, Smallville, Ugly Betty)
- Turning people we love into people not worthy of that love (Veronica Mars, Heroes)
Seriously! I watched the very last two eps of Veronica Mars tonight. Veronica single-mindedly pursuing her own ends without regard for those she cares about is par for the course. But to end the show on such a downer does a huge disservice to all the fans who fought so hard to make the show survive.
I watched Ugly Betty, too. Not only is Henry out of her life under false (and clichéd!) pretenses, a character that has been fast growing on me was murdered. Poor Kevin Alejandro! Losing both his shows! I hope he gets something really good next year. He's a very talented guy. I know this show is supposed to be a soap, but the soapy stuff is just stupid.
I can't believe they killed Santos!!!!!
