10. Though Twisted didn't know that its season one finale would double as its series finale, I thought the episode wrapped up the series nicely. I am pretty upset that the dynamic show won't be coming back, but I guess I'm fairly satisfied with how it was left off. However, I would have liked to see Jo and Danny together a few more episodes. Personally, I was never a fan of Danny's and Lacey's relationship, mainly because I didn't like Lacey.
9. iCarly stole my preteen heart, mainly because it was named after me... sort of, right? Anyway, I was pretty heartbroken when iGoodbye premiered, but I really enjoyed the two concluding episodes. Meeting Carly's dad was a good way to wrap up some questions that we all had, and I loved the Farly (yes I just created a ship name for Freddie and Carly) kiss. Hadn't we all waited for their wedding day? When "And... we're clear" sounded for the last time, I felt like my childhood was slowly slipping away.
8. If possible, I think I enjoyed Victorious even more than iCarly when new episodes were still premiering. The show really made me love VIctoria Justice, Ariana Grande, and Avan Jogia. Even now, I still do my best to follow each of their careers. Not only did the final installment premiere on my birthday, but it was wonderful because it was so different. There was no emotional goodbye, no allusions to previous episodes. Instead, the ending was unexpected and abrupt. It was just another episode! Go figure!
7. In case you haven't noticed, I'm a huge Dan Schneider fan. My next finale is that of Drake & Josh. Like all other Schneider series, Drake & Josh was a masterpiece, so it's finale was a perfect ending. Entitled "Really Big Shrimp," the episode actually was not the last to premiere, but the episodes were played out of order. Great planning, huh? Personally, I think that the disorganization reflects the effortlessly carefree and hilarious nature of the show. Everything happens for a reason after all.
6. One of my favorite TV shows was the British drama entitled Merlin. I absolutely adored some of the actors, and I own all the DVD box sets like a total dork. The finale was literally perfect to wrap up the series even though my favorite character had to die. Hey, it was written in the legend of King Arthur and the Round Table. With a fast forward into the future, even the last seconds of the series kept you thinking. Where did the ever-so powerful Merlin go next?
5. Hey, what kind of 2000's kid would I be if I didn't mention Hannah Montana here? After all, the series finale was extremely dramatic and lovely. We spent so long thinking that the Hannah Montana secret would stay that way forever, but suddenly, Miley revealed her secret! So, where did the series go after that? Miley and Lily emotionally parted ways, but a sudden reappearance of Miley at Lily's dorm room brought tears to all our eyes.
4. Full House is possibly the very definition of a classic TV series. The show taught us a million and a half life lessons. Eight seasons of love, drama, and friendship concluded with the family trying to get Michelle to remember them after an accident. A final curtain call warmed our hearts as we said goodbye to beloved characters that felt like our family. Michelle, D.J., Kimmy, Danny, and Jessie had snuck their ways right into our hearts.
3. My childhood was possibly defined by Kim Possible, a series that followed a teenage crime-fighter and her "stoppable" best friend. The graduation episode was complete with criminal drama, romance, and sadness that my favorite series was coming to an end. How would my little nine-year-old self go on without hearing Kim say "So not the drama?" Obviously, I continued to live, mainly because the ending to the series was so satisfying.
2. The amazing Broadway-inspired show entitled SMASH really should have never ended, but since it did, I have to give its series finale props. It wrapped up all aspects of the show from Ivy's to Karen's future. Both our protagonists got happy endings with the men they had been on and off with throughout previous episodes. As usual, the music was lovely, and the plot was thicker than ever before. Farewell, SMASH. I wish you had never left.
1. Did you predict it? I sure would have. Gossip Girl comes in at number one on my series finale countdown. How could anything beat it? All the endings I needed came to pass, and there were plenty of wonderful allusions to the future. Complete with two weddings and a "Chair" child, the finale was everything I wanted. After all, we saw the new Gossip Girl, and ever since I've been anxiously awaiting a sister series. I guess it will never happen, but a girl can hope.
