It wasn’t REALLY a cliffhanger because they wrapped the story up…but it was convoluted at best because it was supposed to be a cliffhanger, then re-wrote it.
How about the best anti-cliffhanger…That one sitcom (name escapes me) that ended with the last breaking the fourth wall and just saying “Bye everybody!”. I don’t know what it is, but I saw that on “I love the (insert appropriate decade here)”.
Farscape. Damn, that one hurt. Not just a cliffhanger, but the two leads pulverized into cremains. The writers weren’t expecting cancellation, and had no time to even do that “cram the final two seasons into the last three episodes!” thing.
Of course, they did make it mostly better with a 4-hour miniseries special a couple of years later, but it wasn’t the same.
Besides Dallas, that other great primetime soap of the 80’s, Dynasty, also ended its run with a cliffhanger. Also the new *The Fugitive *series starring Tim Daly ended its one-year run with a cliffhanger. Too bad really.
John Doe on Fox ended with a pretty big cliffhanger. Years later, someone involved with the show spilled all the beans about how the show would’ve resolved everything had it continued, and I have to say, I frankly prefer it just ending on a cliffhanger.
I’m sorry. I plead ignorance. I was totally unaware that “My Name Is Earl” aired Down Under. I know, that’s no excuse. The finale was less than two weeks ago and I should have considered that not everybody had seen it. Still, I never even once considered Australia. Again, I’m sorry.
This site says it is officially canceled. It has been pretty spot on in predicting and reporting since I started watching it. It was growing stale for me anyway. Sock was an overwhelming ass, Sam was supposed to be a “good guy” but for me was basically a sorry little wimp and Ben even more-so. The only interesting character was Satan.
