A show that left a lot of questions, but never gave the audience intelligible answers. Originally, Staying Alive was one of the freshest and most mysterious projects to ever appear on television. However, by the fourth season it became clear: the story is exhausted, and the creators can not put an end to it. Nevertheless, loyal fans did not lose hope that the authors have an ace up their sleeve, which will surely delight them. Unfortunately, everything went awry: the fact that the characters were in the likeness of purgatory, not only managed to come to mind all viewers, but also devalued the multifaceted universe of the series.

The most discussed and epic series of the last decade has always had a well-thought-out pace, during which the fantasy world was revealed from new and new angles. Millions of fans were waiting for the final season, hoping for the usual battle scenes and unexpected plot twists. But, as you know, everything turned out to be too sad, and a bit of resentment against the creators still torments viewers around the world. The final note was devastating: a series of careless shots, shortened arches of the heroes, illogical actions of Daenerys. All this led to a hasty outcome, which seemed extremely offensive to fans who sincerely loved the show.

The final episode of the final fourth season of the series about the confrontation between two bright and ambiguous women was released on April 11. From the last chapter we expected fireworks of emotions and revealing all the secrets, because, you will agree, after long games in cat and mouse, Eva and Villanel deserved something similar to the Hollywood finale. After dealing with the organization “12”, the former rivals, and now colleagues, finally surrender to the power of the senses, until the fatal bullet hits the shoulder of the heroine Jody Comer. An atypical love story ends in a half-word with the cry of Sandra O and the dissatisfaction of the audience on the other side of the screen.

“Supernatural” was the show that never seemed to end. But most recently, in 2020, the long-awaited last episode came out. Recall that the original showrunners of the series left after the fifth season, and many believe that from that moment the story of the brothers began to decline. However, a real disappointment awaited viewers while watching the final series, which tried to end the Winchester epic. For fifteen seasons, the audience of the series has become accustomed to all sorts of demons and paranormal phenomena, which is why such a mediocre ending seemed completely illogical. The main thing that infuriated the fans was the unexpected and ordinary death of Dean, which the beloved hero certainly did not deserve.

Ever since the start of the third season, it has become clear that Netflix’s hit about school bullying has begun to lose momentum. If the first season revealed the story of Hannah, and the second gave a look at events from a different angle, then the subsequent episodes were just desperate attempts to squeeze something out of the plot. As a result – the finale, which completely shattered hopes for an inspiring outcome. A group of friends lost all faith in the best and stopped trusting each other at the very moment when, according to all the laws of the genre (and life), they should get closer. All the utter darkness is aggravated by the death of Justin, as if the creators decided to end the story at the same point where it all began – loss and grief.

For nine seasons, Ted was looking for a second half to become Mrs. Mosby. In a series of fleeting dates, passionate romances and painful separations, the hero again and again found the strength to believe in true love. The whole premise of the series was focused on the mystical figure of my mother, and the relationship between Ted and Robin was initially doomed (both because of the script moves and because of the difference in life goals). Having deceived the audience’s expectations, the writers turn a blind eye to previous seasons and at the last minute unfold the worst finale in television history: the divorce of Robin and Barney, the death of the one that was to end the search epic, and the reunion of a dubious couple.
