In television, the ending used to mean everything. A series finale could make a break a years-long favorite program. You could tell what kind of person you were meeting just by asking them if they thought Tony was dead, or if Jack and Sawyer and Desmond - were also dead? Actually that’s a bit odd.

Was it all a dream? Was it a vision in a snowglobe? Was the chicken really a baby?

In “Finale” one dedicated media viewer revisits some of the greatest, and not-so-greatest, series finales. And someone who’s never bothered to watch the show goes along for the ride and decides if it was all worth the effort - or whether we should just skip to the end and get it over with.

Lots of fun - Minor Recs

I really enjoy this podcast and think the way they approach the subject to be fun and fresh. Not sure what the people who left the negative reviews were thinking as the hosts tell you what the premise for the show is at the beginning of every episode, one has seen the show and the other hasn’t. My only recommendation would be to put a bit more of yourselves in the show. I think Ron let slip on the iFanboy's All Media roundup that they are married but I do not believe that has been addressed in Finale itself. It would be fun to hear where each of you were at in your lives/relationship while when the show that you are discussing was on. I can certainly understand if the hosts prefer to keep private information private and I still really enjoy the show, but the podcast form is more intimate and right or wrong (probably wrong) the listener does expect a bit more of the host. In the end if you understand the very basic concept of the show and that sounds like something you would enjoy I highly recommend
it.

Hate The Host

I love the concept of this podcast because I am the kind of person who will watch a few episodes of a hit show so I have an idea what is happening in the series finale. For example, I watched 10 random episodes of Breaking Bad just because I wanted to see how the show ended. The problem are hosts of this podcast. The female’s host is annoying as hell and since she “doesn’t own a tv” what is the point of her ability to speak on any tv subject. Even through the male host has decent insight his voice is just too whiny and grates on my nerves. Let me know when someone else is hosting the podcast and I might come back as a subscriber.
