Re: Worst unresolved cliffhanger in history of cancelled TV shows

What about Heroes? Did that end properly... or has my disappointment of that (could have been excellent) show frizzled my memory?

Brothers! What we do in life...Echoes in Eternity!

Re: Worst unresolved cliffhanger in history of cancelled TV shows

I picked TSCC because it's the one of them that I would most like to continue. I would really have liked more Surface too, though.
The ending of Angel I loved... I wouldn't really call that a cliffhanger... more going out with a bang smile

Re: Worst unresolved cliffhanger in history of cancelled TV shows

Twin Peaks is right up there of the worst cliffhangers for me.  So much left unanswered and so much scope to carry on.

2020.  Meh.

ALF?

Pissed me off like hell, when watching it as a child. (I was like "WTF! Screw YOU!")

62

Re: Worst unresolved cliffhanger in history of cancelled TV shows

KyleXY and TSCC, are the most annoying endings. You take Angel and forget the comics, you can assume they all die, and that's an ending. The 4400 also ended somewhat, with a promise more than a proper cliffhanger, but deserved better, a miniseries or something to end it properly, or not, I kenda like that it ends a bit open. KyleXY deserved a movie or something, just to wrap up, I read an interview with the authors and they had a lot planned for the boy in terms of ethical challenges.

Worst ending though still goes to Alf, where the lighthearted family comedy ends in abruptly dark tone with Alf being captured by the government to be experimented on and dissected.

Re: Worst unresolved cliffhanger in history of cancelled TV shows

Twin Peaks was so good I even forgive the Cliffhanger ... rsrsrs

Quantum Leap had a proper ending, a beautifully poetic one, thogh not what we were all expecting.

Re: Worst unresolved cliffhanger in history of cancelled TV shows

65

Re: Worst unresolved cliffhanger in history of cancelled TV shows

Is it just me or is anyone else still smarting over "Space: above and beyond"?

Re: Worst unresolved cliffhanger in history of cancelled TV shows

Voting on the cliffhanger, and not the quality of the show, I'd say the worst cliffhanger for me was "The Event".  The show deserved to be cancelled, but the secret (the origin of the others) that they dangled in front of us all season was never explained.  The show's creator even promised in his blog after the cancellation to eventually reveal the secrets, and never did. 

For shows I liked, TSCC was the worst by far - the show was just hitting its stride too.  SGU was also frustrating. Farscape, without the later Peacekeeper Wars miniseries, would have been on the list - it ended literally with "to be continued" after "killing" the main characters.

Angel and Caprica had proper finales, not cliffhangers.  Heroes wasn't really a "cliffhanger" as she already fell and revived in front of the camera by the end of the episode.  It left room for a future, but didn't demand one.

Re: Worst unresolved cliffhanger in history of cancelled TV shows

Just to name a few...:

The 4400
Jericho
Flashforward
Kyle Xy
The Dresden Files
Heroes
Bionic Woman
Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles
Terra Nova
Threshold

Wellll Those are some series that could at least have a final season with 5 or six episodes to close the series ... (ok, Jericho had  the last episodes, but they rushed a lot and it was lame!! )

The 4400 was one of my favourite series that was canceled... sad


btw, farscape was oneof  the best series i have watched and i liked the finale... but they could really continue the farscape world... With Claudia Black and Ben Browder of course...

Re: Worst unresolved cliffhanger in history of cancelled TV shows

Here is what I think..  all these good shows..  ending so poorly..   think of it this way..  If you purchased a BOOK and spend days/weeks reading it only to find that last 20 or so pages to be blank and the last page with words on it ended with 'blah blah....'   you'd be pissed off and want your money back for the BOOK..   I'm getting tired of investing my time into a good story for it to just END..   and I'm not talking days/weeks..   typically these episodes lasts for years..   only to be cut or cancelled leaving us the viewer stranded for an ending..   It's horrible practice and we should start a boycott to get the networks to commit to finishing the stories.  I understand the francise loses money and they want to cancel it.. that's fine..  spend the money and finish it properly..    you wouldn't want to buy a new model car and find out in 4 months they stop selling them and stop producing replacement parts for it..   movies and TV should be no different..  Support your viewers and give them a full product...     Who's with me? smile

Re: Worst unresolved cliffhanger in history of cancelled TV shows

My vote is for both Surface (loved the show) and 4400..   spent a few good seasons watching it and it ended poorly..   they did make a so so ended but it was a rush to get it off the air..  didn't answer anything.
