The suburbs are for plebs; it's all about the ex-burbs for me.

This. The exurbs are the place to be. I'm still being situated, but I love it so far.

Are you serious? Do you mean to imply that I find the last season absolutely terrible (and quite frankly, S05 and S06 weren't good either; S07 was barely ok) just because I didn't understand what the series was about? So, one either likes it, or one doesn't understand it? No criticism allowed? If only life were that simple.

Settle down, Beavis. It's just a TV show.

The last few seasons were definitely a step down from the earlier ones, but the finale absolutely made sense if you watched it while keeping in mind the show's milieu. The people I see who got the most upset about it are those who seemed to forget about the things I mentioned in my post.

Imagine if the show had ended after the season with Trinity. The series would have come full circle.

There were still a lot of decent eps after it but series finales in general are never an easy task

I feel pretty much the same way about How I Met Your Mother. The people who were claiming the mother wasn't pretty enough or were let down by the finale seem to have missed the point of the show (and lulz at the jezebel folk for judging a chick based on looks)

That dude banged all sorts of starlets and beauties--that's clearly not what he was looking for. The ending fit the show. Also, my understanding is that the ending had been decided long in advance--they filmed the final scenes with his children many years ago (to keep the actors from being old), so there is a limit how much they could change the ending. Maybe I am wrong on this...but its not like they decided randomly to slap the "fans" in the face--they had planned this slap many years ago.

Also...I'm not one to get pissed about how someone else ends their story. Yeah, maybe stories don't always have my favorite ending, but I'm not the one writing them. Its not the writer's job to place to cater to my whims (ratings seeking aside), they get the freedom to tell the story they wanted. If I don't like the ending, so be it, I guess they aren't the writer for me.


edit: for instance, I am sure the finale of Mad Men is going to be depressing. This will probably upset a bunch of people on the netwebs, particularly those who are only recent followers of the show (since it became cool and one of the "things" to watch) who never really picked up on the fact that the show is *not* a happy show.
