Fair points. I guess I just feel that a reset button in a series finale is a bit of a copout. Although, granted, if they had left this status quo intact, it would've been pretty hard to undo it if the show did return.
Really, though, I'd kind of prefer it if it didn't return. The revivals weren't as good as the original, but they still had some worthwhile or even excellent episodes. I wouldn't want to see it come back only to deteriorate further in quality.
