Is there anything more heartbreaking than a beloved TV show building up to a much-anticipated final bow, and then utterly blowing it? It happens more often than it should. In some cases it’s a big swing and a miss. In others it’s a lack of closure. And in some cases, a disastrous finale can harm the cultural cache of a long-running series overall. Now, the Great Pop Culture Debate podcast is looking back at some of the most notable televised blunders as we discuss the worst TV series finales of all time.
Listen as Host Eric Rezsnyak and GPCD panelists Joelle Boedecker, Karissa Kloss, and Kevin Dillon discuss and debate 16 of the most legendarily bad series finales of all time, ultimately naming their worst of the worst.
