    Which TV series had the best last episode


    I thought Seinfeld was good. After so many other shows having some kind of "dream" sequence; the gang of four ending up in jail was totally unexpected.

    I am a M*A*S*H addict, but I have to think that the best ending is the Newhart show where he wakes up in bed with Suzanne Pleshett from his previous show to tell her about the dream he had about running an inn in Vermont.

    I agree that the Newhart ending was the best. I thought the Seinfeld ending was lousy. Not my opinion of the show itself.

    I'm with Tim Reynolds and swaimj. That ending to Newhart was totally unexpected.

    I have to say that the Newhart as a psychiatrist was my favorite show in it's time. I liked the thanksgiving show where Suzanne Pleshette was gone, and Newhart was drunk. Hilarious show.

    I think that one of the best Newhart episodes was when they decided to get pregnant and Emily had worked out a precise timetable for the optimum time. Then she came down with the flu or something, and Bob threw his back out. At some point she starts crying. When Bob asks her what wrong, all she says is the time from her schedule. It was too hard not to laugh.

    wasn't the last episode of MASH depressing? I felt bad for all of them. I can't say I've seen too many series ends to shows. So I guess I'm not a good source there.
