When it comes to long running sitcoms... Friends, Home Improvement. At least I haven't heard people bitching about it like they did about other finales.

Does anyone hate All Good Things? Have never heard such a thing.

I thought the finale of Arrested Development (S3) was perfect. 30 Rock also ended well. The Office ended well (Michael, I can't believe you came! That's what she said.)

TNG is probably my favorite show of all time, yet I don't think of "All Good Things..." as one of the great finales.

As for Robin and Ted, I don't think I ever got to a point where I thought they didn't belong together.

It has been a few weeks.

I didn't like the ending. But as the weeks go by, I care less.

I can think of only three series finales that are "universally" loved : BB, Newhart and The Fugitive. And maybe STTNG

BB?

Wasn't M.A.S.H. a pretty much universally loved finale too? It's still considered to be the highest rated finale ever.

the final episode of Babylon 5 is pretty beloved... the final season as a whole, not so much

It's become more beloved with age but at the time I think it was a bit more controversial, due to the shock of the murdered baby sequence and the subplots related to setting up AfterMASH.

Well, "To Sleep in Light," was filmed at the end of Season 4, with the thought there may not be a Season 5.

Re: How I Met Your Mother: The Final Season

I just saw the "alternate" ending on the DVD and it was a perfect happy ending. It was exactly what I wanted. Ted and Tracy live happily ever after, Bob Sagat gives a beautiful ending monologue about how he met your mother (remember, Sagat isn't even IN in the aired finale!), there's even a prominent hint that Robin and Barney DO end up together in the end.

This is my new canon

Re: How I Met Your Mother: The Final Season

The finale as it was aired was perfectly fine in my opinion. But I'm glad you enjoyed the alternate ending.
