SFF73: Series Finales With Closure



It's never pleasant to learn a favorite TV series is ending, but if the writers are able to bring the narrative to a satisfying conclusion, it can go a long way towards giving a sense of closure to fans. This is especially true for science fiction and supernatural shows that have super-dedicated viewers. On this week's podcast, we discuss some of our favorite examples of shows that were able to end well. Paradoxically, we found that some of the best finales provided closure by leaving the story open-ended enough to allow the audience to decide what happened next. To avoid spoilers, skip ahead approximately 4 minutes for shows you haven't completed.  See for privacy and opt-out information.
