Question: Now that the 2011-2012 TV season is over, what was your favorite hour-long season finale? Your least favorite?
My answer: Nikita and The Vampire Diaries were my favorite 1-hour finales. Both shows had been slowly building up to the dramatic events that happened and now they’ll both start the next season on intriguing new paths.
I was surprised that my least favorite finale was Revenge since it’s been my favorite new show. The finale took the show to a place that kind of made sense, but it was also a cliché I was hoping the show would avoid.
Smash was also disappointed me. All the unrealistic happenings in the finale highlighted, for me, how much the show squandered its potential as a drama about the behind-the-scenes look at Broadway and instead decided to be a clichéd soap opera.
Honorable Mentions: I liked the finales for Fringe, The Good Wife, Once Upon a Time, and Castle.
