Think about some of your favorite TV shows over the years – the good ones that lasted more than two seasons. There were good times, where you laughed so hard that you either cried, peed yourself or abs instantly appeared. Times that you just wanted to throw your TV through your window because of that one episode. Don’t forget about the times you cried over a character death or when your OTP broke up. You’ve come to love these characters to the point where they just pop up in your mind like an old friend.
Now think about the ending of the show – the finale. When you had to say goodbye.
It’s heartbreaking, isn’t it?
F.R.I.E.N.D.S., The Nanny, Boy Meets World, The Suite Life, Hannah Montana… all are shows that killed me inside when they end. It still kills me inside to watch the finale episodes. Yesterday, the finale of Boy Meets World was on so my mom and I watched it and we both cried for the entire thing.
I know it’s just a TV show, but when you get that attached to the characters and their lives you can’t help but feel empty when it’s over. Sometimes we don’t even have to like how the show ended, like Dexter for example, but we get so emotionally invested that when it’s all over there’s just… nothing.
Seeing the end of Boy Meets World yesterday brought on some extra feels for me. For those of you in the know, the infamous FOX show, Glee, will be ending tomorrow with its two-hour series finale. As a Gleek, I’m naturally feeling a mixture of emotions and feelings – sadness because the show is coming to an end, I’m nervous because I don’t know how the producers chose to end it and I’m not sure they’ll do it justice, and I’m dreading tomorrow because…
Glee. Is. Ending.
Please excuse me while I go cry in a corner for the next six months.
That leaves me with one question for the rest of you.
What are some shows that you were sad to see end?
