30 Days of TV Meme - Day 26  

I changed this up because it didn't make sense to me. They ask your favorite series finale, your favorite pilot, etc but not the series finale that made you go OMG!WTF?! If I had kept it at season finales that made me do that, I would have been here for days. As is, two finales really make me pissed off. I mean like growling at the television can't watch when they are on and made me go oh thanks for fucking over the fans.

Quantum Leap and Roseanne

Here is the thing with me with series, I get it, getting cancelled sucks. Nobody wants to get shitcanned, not on tv, not in real life. It makes you pissed, hurt, upset. But here's the thing, writers and showrunners, when you write a finale that is a big old fuck you to the networks, you aren't hurting them. They don't care. You aren't sticking it to the fans who left or the critics who panned it. The people you are hurting ARE THE PEOPLE WHO WATCHED! They didn't contribute to your cancellation so why the hell are you punishing them? I don't get it.

And honestly, I can't even discuss what happens in these finales because it gets me so. fucking. aggro. Like I will stab a bitch. Suffice to say that if I wanted my heart ripped out and to be bent over and sodomozied without lube, well, there are ads in craigslist for that.

AW, how can you not like the Roseanne finale? Everyone was so happy and Darlene and David got married and certainly no one had a baby that almost died, or had a heart attack, or went to California and cheated on their wife of 20+ years, or WON THE LOTTERY and proceeded to have WTF storylines not at all in keeping with the down to earth, bluecollar tone of the series, and the fans were most DEFINITELY not told at the end of it all that the bulk of the show was all ROSEANNE'S WONDERFUL WORLD OF MAKE BELIEVE!!!!!

Bitter? Whose Bitter?! Certainly not me.
