Been rewatching The IT Crowd recently.

Forgot how bloody good it was.
the work outing a real classic.

Have been hooked on re-runs of the chase, pointless, who wants to be a millionare and bullseye. Here's what you could have won never grows old.

Pure genius, that one.

The IT crowd is fantastic. The football one where they end up being get away drivers for an armed robbery. So so funny,

The thing about Arsenal is they always try to walk it in.

Free trial of Disney+. The Simpsons between Seasons 3 and 9 is finest television ever made.

Don't really watch a lot of TV....Currently downloaded all the last season of Homeland so far ready to watch in one go but got me talking to a friend.

What is the last boxset you watched that you felt had a good or satisfying ending?

I recently watched Game of Thrones and the ending was widely ridiculed, Lost was another which went a bit mad.

This is a good point.  Endings seem to cause people all manner of angst.  Maybe its separation anxiety or something.  I enjoyed the Game of Thrones ending. Breaking bad too. Wouldn't have had much complaint about Sons of Anarchy either... maybe I'm easily pleased. I much prefer a show to at least come to a conclusion rather than be endlessly dragged out or even just axed completely.

Lost was a shambles though.

As was Dexter. Never has there been a worse ending to a tv show.

The ending of Love/Hate was decent, I loved the series - especially moving on from Aiden Gillen which I didn't think it would recover from.

Felt the last few episodes were overly grim as some of the characters were becoming popular even though they weren't supposed to be so the writers were under pressure to be seen to show that the end was violence in that world. The Pool Cue thing.....lets move on.

GoT wasn't too bad an ending, I mean I thought everyone had to die in the end......Although who ended up on the Iron Throne in the end wasn't really for me. Probably could have ended it slightly better that way.

I never watched it bar an episode or two which I thought was actually alright, but the ending of How I Met Your Mother went down like a lead balloon. Voted one of worst ending series ever.

Love/Hate was so good, you could have been forgiven to maybe pass over it after the first episode but they rocked right through to the end and yes the characters were grim (if life in the underworld is like that) but i thought the balance was just right

Apparently the writer(s) lived in the "underworld" for 6 months before the show. One of the best shows ever IMO. Apparently it's all been put on RTE player.

I'm not that familiar with the prisoner. In fairness to Dexter I don't know how you would do a good ending to it the nature of the show.

For anyone who use to like Dragonball Z back in the day there are quite a few new episodes/movies going back to 2013 to catch up on.

Was a fan of HIMYM at the start but the ending was horrifically bad like they dragged a whole twenty episodes out of an ending it was f**king stupid!!

Very rarely happy with endings I think shows that go out at the top are the best Gervais did it well 2 series then youíre done dragging things on like they do in America only makes things stale.

Bojack Horseman has a very good ending!! Brilliant show!
