Re: Season Cliffhangers as Series Finales

I'd have rather had the seventh season finale of The X-Files, "Requiem", serve as the series finale. I know, lots of people seem to love season 8. I don't, especially not the gag-worthy "Scully's miracle baby" arc. But Requiem was a solid end to a largely underwhelming season, the last moment the series still felt like its old self, and a nice bookend-style trip back to the story and characters of the pilot episode. Mulder disappearing aboard a UFO seems oddly appropriate for the character and Scully's hospital bed revelation of her pregnancy works, in hindsight, better as a final, mysterious twist than it does a drawn out story arc about alien super soldiers.
