    Digital Spy have published an article, claiming that Six Feet Under has the best series finale in television history. They claim it is the only show to receive universal acclaim from audiences for a finale. They say even adored finales from the likes of Justified, Mad Men and Breaking Bad have their detractors. Yet Six Feet Under does not.

    So that got me thinking, what for you is the best series finale ever? Agree with the article and believe that Six Feet Under is six feet ahead of the competition? Or is there another show with a note perfect ending?

    How do they know SFU’s series finale doesn’t have ANY detractors? Which method did they use to get to that conclusion?

    I have no idea. It didn’t use any measures, it just said the finale was universally adored. More of an opinion piece I think, rather than any type of poll or survey being the building block.

    No mention of The Shield, that has the most universally acclaimed best series finale?

    Hmm it’s very subjective. I didn’t like SFU’s finale that much so there goes their universal acclaim spiraling down the sink.

    I would love to see one of these The Shields, Six Feet Unders and Justifieds with perfect finales.

    We’ve been getting a lot of good ones the last few years, but Six Feet Under and The Shield are still the first to pop into mind.

    I think the finale of SFU is perfect.
    I also loved the last moment of ER…
    And I think I’m alone with it, but I really enjoyed the final episode of TAAHM, despite some flaws. But the last 30 seconds were hilarious.

    Nothing is even close to the level of The Shield’s finale, but the next-best are The Wire and Six Feet Under. SFU is more of a great final sequence/scene than overall episode.

    SIX FEET UNDER. I don´t consider it the best solely on the last scene, btw. The entire 70 min episode is a perfect conclusion to every main character´s story, and completely justified with the tone, intention and everything the series was about. They tied it all in what is actually one of the series best episodes. And of course, there´s that last scene.

    On the comedy side, I love Seinfeld´s finale. THAT show could not have had a more fitting ending.

    The Shield, by far. Also worth mentioning are Friday Night Lights, Justified, and Lost.
