Day 26 - OMG WTF? season finale.

I ummed and arred about this question for quite some time. I was going to do with this season's finale of NCIS, but decided I'd already ranted about it; ditto Season 4's finale.

In the end I decided that as I'd switched 'favourite series finale' for 'favourite season finale', I'd do the same with this. So rather than a season finale, I'm going to go with a series finale.

And I give you The Prisoner.

I loved the series, we had it on video, and the whole set up was fascinating and there were some superb actors and actresses. The setting was wonderful, I looked forward to watching each episode and really thought it would be a watch again and get on DVD in due course.

And then came the final episode and WTF? sums it up perfect for me :-( I know Patrick McGoohan didn't know how to end it, but I wish he'd found another way than the one he came up with. It totally ruined the series for me, I'm sorry to say. And when we got rid of the videos we never replaced them on DVD.

A very OMG WTF? and sad ending to what had been a wonderful series.
