Oh, and I just watched the season finale of The Following. Now *that's* how you're supposed to do a finale. ›››
Ya I saw that. And yes the season finale of The Following was cool, but 'certain aspect' didn't quite hit the chord, if you get what I mean.
And I heard Defiance is okay, I'm holding off watching anything new as my semester exams are approaching. From what I saw, it appears to be a fresh take on the genre, but the story telling is just average.

I may give Defiance a try.
And Dexter's back soon. I'm nervous about that - it's a little too common for series to go rapidly downhill in the final season (I still can't get over what they did to Fringe. And The Sopranos.)

I think Dexter ending is right here, don't want to drag it too long and confirm it going downhill (which it drastically did with season 6) Season 7 was actually done very well, one of the top 3 of the show and most successful one yet. 8 kicks off 6 months later where 7 ended, and I'm hoping this will be awesome. fingers crossed for ending with a bang

Sopranos: There were too many episodes in the final season, and they just didn't have enough material. It dragged, and dragged and dragged in the first half.
Dexter: I agree about Season 6. If you look at where Season 5 ended, they clearly had the whole thing mapped out for one more season, but then they got the three-season extension and it was as though they just didn't know what to do with. Season 6 felt like a "filler".
And don't get me started on British series - they have this habit of 6 or 10 episodes per year, and seem NOT to lock anyone into a contract, so we keep getting "New Season, Completely New Cast with Zero Continuity". Bedlam, Misfits, Being Human... all fading out with the slightest of whimpers.
What's the American version of Being Human like?

Like the other have commented, a disappointing end to the season. Didn't know it was the final episode before reading it here, didn't feel like it at all. Was looking forward to what happened next
Thought the last GoT was disappointing too. The episode before was pretty good, but this one wasn't to my liking.
When will Vikings start to air again, do we have to wait virtually a whole year?
Have only seen 9 or so episodes of Three Kingdoms, so plenty of hours to waste there at least.

I very much liked the last GoT ep was done very well. The last 3 episodes were really well done, and things are just getting started!

(Oh, and "Drifter wanders into town. Sheriff gets killed 20 minutes into the story. Drifter gets offered Sheriff job." Bet nobody saw THAT coming.)

One of the things I loved about it was that humans weren't at the centre of everything (though one guy kind of was).

Incidentally, regarding abrupt endings, did anyone see the recent Big Bang Theory episode where Sheldon was talking about cancelled series?
"They can't just cancel a show like Alphas. You know? They have to help the viewers let go. Firefly did a movie to wrap things up. Buffy the Vampire Slayer continued on as a comic book. Heroes gradually lowered the quality season by season till we were grateful it ended."

Was actually sad when Heroes ended though. It's true it became progressively worse season by season (but the first was bloody great!), but I still liked it and wanted to see where they took it. Probably wouldn't have been somewhere good to be honest, but still, it was a decent enough show. The change just about every week of "now I'm good, now I'm bad" was very annoying though. By the end it didn't seem like they knew where to take it, and the plot was all over the place.

If you want something smilar to the Big BAng try The IT Crowd. It's more similar to the first season, just a couple of nerdy guys with great comedy, but there is only 4 series each about 6 episodes eliminating the "burn out effect" the Big Bang Theory has. Its also got some hilarious folks from The Mighty Boosh, like the fantastic Matt Berry whose voice could move mountains. Sometimes it feels like the Big Bang Theory has been artificially lengthened by Hollywood Viagra.

Seen first "pilot" episode. Biggest full of crap seen.

Yeah I've seen it too and it's really a shame it got canceled after four seasons (though Firefly had worse luck) I really enjoyed it.
@ GoT: I'll wait until the latest season is over and than I'll watch it. The waiting for the next episode would kill me (as each episode ends kinda in a cliffhanger) />
