NB I know it's my problem, not yours, theirs or whatever.

Nonetheless, it genuinely baffles me when people talk about watching a series of a comedy or buying a box set of Last of the.Summer Wine. Isn't comedy something you watch the odd episode of when it's on rather than set out to watch deliberately? Probably just me. I'd never choose to see a comedy at the pictures either, even though I like laughing and sometimes they are funny.

Seen a lot of  fb moaning about How I Met your Mother. Had to stop reading when a friend of a friend said it was the worst ending since Blake's Seven.

Best endings: Blake's 7, The Shield, Angel, Sunset Beach. Blackadder had a n okay ending but the whole last series was pretty dismal.

Worst: not sure. The Wire was a bit pooh but it had generated so much goodwill by then that i can't hold it against it.

Three of my most re-watched box-sets are Father Ted, The Office & Curb Your Enthusiasm.
In the latter case, barring one season, I've watched each series' episodes back-to-back on DVD.
But I take your point- it's the genre that most easily lends itself to sporadic / opportunistic viewing.

US sitcom seasons are dragged out for so long you'd have to be a masochist to stick with them all the way through, but stuff like Partridge, Blackadder, and Father Ted were appointment viewing for me and have been rewatched many times over on repeats. I eventually saw every episide of Friends and Frasier through repeats too, because they were on at a time when I needed something to eat while eating and I get locked into routine quite easily. Wouldn't watch them on video.

Blake's Seven ending disappointed me. Though now I probably wouldn't like the ending I wanted at the time.

Worst endings of all are when a channel switch happens and I don't get the new channel. Annoying as I know the program still exists but for me it has ended.

I didn't see Firefly at the time. Seen it on DVD since and cannot understand why it didn't run at least 5 full seasons. Heck it could still be going... A very rich setting.

Survivors reboot. Had an ending with a conclusion. AND a cliff hanger for a third season or spin off. Good AND bad...

Best endings have me stumped right now. Must be one not mentioned yet but cannot think of one...

I regularly re-watch Black Books, Chef, Father Ted and Black Adder. I laugh at the same things over and over.

You needed something to watch while eating, idiot.

Eating without eating. That's some art of war stuff right there :P

I should also point out that I'm looking forward to the endings to Boardwalk Empire, Fables & Falling Skies.

Wolf Among Us - worst endings.

It has one of the BEST endings if you didn't chase Faith/Narissa at the end.

It still just cuts out right?

The actual ending scene is ok I suppose I just don't really feel the final chapter had much to say in the end.

Blake's Seven has to be the best ever.

I agree!

Me too!
Ditto. Takes some serious balls to finish off a series like that.
