I noticed that a lot of great series will be ending next year (a lot more than usual, in my opinion). And I was wondering, which one do you feel will have the strongest amount of episodes (and possibly will be the most beloved) on their final Emmy run?September 7, 2014 at 8:44 pm #332159
Mad Men will be the Emmy’s favorite probably but I think Parks and Rec will deliever a rewarding final season. It’s a show that hasn’t lost steam so I dobut it will now. I would love The Newsroom to pull off a miracle for people to finally embrace it. I feel like Boardwalk Empire will be the biggest comeback kidSeptember 7, 2014 at 8:47 pm #332160
I think Mad Men’s final season will be a hit or miss, the show still got nominated this year even though there was a lot of backlash. I think Parks and Rec will have a best final season out of all of the shows ending this year and Poehler will get a nom and hopefully win, I can also see the series finale geting a writing nomination, and maybe Chris Pratt could get one because he is a movie star nowSeptember 7, 2014 at 8:55 pm #332161
Mad Men rebounded a bit from Season 6. While this last half season was a bit slight, it left us on a promising note for the final run. Parks and Rec was at some of its weakest last year, but the episodes with Schur involved directly really hit home (particularly the send-off episode for Lowe and Jones, as well as the finale). I’m optimistic that both will end up serving us well, with the slight edge given to Mad Men.

Mad Men was the best show of the recently ended season, so that.September 7, 2014 at 10:23 pm #332163
The Newsroom. I believe Aaron Sorkin will nail the last 6 episodes.September 7, 2014 at 10:39 pm #332164
“Mad Men”!September 7, 2014 at 10:42 pm #332165
Mad Men got my vote. 6 and 7A may have been stalling somewhat, but it always struck me as an immensely well-planned show so I can’t imagine the final 7 episodes being anything less than series highs. It’s also the best show of this bunch on average.
Parks and Recreation should also take a step up for the final year. I see a lot of emotion toward the end, and the time jump creates great comedic possibilities.
I think Boardwalk Empire will have some terrific scenes and a fine ending, but I’m not a fan of the shape the final season seems to be taking and how Nucky-centred it is. I still love the show so much that it’ll be way up there.
Justified just had its worst season, but I think Raylan vs. Boyd will be far more interesting. Still, hurdles to overcome, I expect a mixed bag final season that’s overall pretty good.
Sons of Anarchy is nonsense at this point that’s barely salvageable. I think Sutter probably has had the ending planned for awhile but he and FX just couldn’t resist more cash cow filler seasons, so it probably won’t be as bad as the last two seasons. Still, there will be groans.
The Newsroom has been one of the worst written shows on cable since its inception. I can only imagine the closing storylines being absolutely insipid.
I don’t watch Parenthood, but it sounds like it’s still pretty strong.September 7, 2014 at 11:22 pm #332166
Parks Rec easy. Last season was lesser, but with the time jump and the knowledge that there will be no more seasons I fully believe that the writers will be able to concoct a completely fresh, funny, and rewarding final season for these characters and for the show.
Also, any word on whether or not House of Cards will end this season? I thought I read it might. For its own sake I hope it does.September 7, 2014 at 11:43 pm #332168
The Newsroom and Boardwalk Empire.
Especially Boardwalk Empire. I feel this will be the season it finally achieves what it set out to do. Great show, great actors, great writers.
Can’t wait!September 8, 2014 at 3:03 am #332169
No Glee or Two and a Half Men? They are sure to be “amazeballs”.September 8, 2014 at 5:11 am #332170
Boardwalk Empire. I would say Glee but after last season, I am not so sure anymore.September 8, 2014 at 6:48 am #332171
Boardwalk Empire (never would’ve guessed this would be my answer back on season one). Reluctant on picking Mad Men, although I could see the show having one last moment of greatness.September 8, 2014 at 6:50 am #332172
I think Glee has potential. They just have alot of holes to climb out of. With that ensemble I have a feeling that it will be like True Blood where the storten season is not enough to close everyone’s storylines perfectly
