recent years there has been the idea of drawing up lists of the worst endings
to television series. Below is one such list of top six worst endings, I hasten
to add that I have never seen any of the series listed here, apart from a few
episodes of ‘Quantum Leap.’ However there is one further series which could
easily be added to it, that of ‘
1. ‘How I Met Your Mother’ (CBS) The finale of the long-running
2. ‘Seinfeld’ (NBC) That's it? ...
3. ‘Lost’ (ABC) ...
4. ‘Game of Thrones’ (HBO) ...
5. "Dexter" (Showtime)
6. ‘Quantum Leap’
From a personal point of view one episode is
never listed, which I suppose is hardly surprising seeing as the programmes in
question are all modern day television series, with the exception of ‘Quantum
Leap.’ And no list mentioned ‘
And yet at the same time, as I have said before, perhaps ‘Fall Out’ is the most logical conclusion, if indeed we can call ‘Fall Out’ the conclusion to the series. Isn’t there an argument for ‘Fall Out’ being where ‘the Prisoner’ begins? The Prisoner who was with them, resigned and then went and gone, rather like No.48!
