Uh-oh. Probably something obscure that never got killed by crazy fandoms. Something like Profit/his secretary or something. Yeah, I shipped it. Kill me now.

I usually just wish that the cast of characters that make the show never break up. In which capacity they stay together - friends, lovers, gigantic orgy - I usually don't care about.

There have been very few shows where I hated the finales. I usually just want some closure and I usually get that, perhaps less because it's given and more because I just take it.

But when closure is freely and generously given - like Wonderfalls, Life on Mars or Six Feet Under - it's very much appreciated. Except if even closure can't save an abysmal previous two seasons like Buffy.

Well, to be all technical, still, I really, really, really hated the Stepfather character in Fanny and Alexander. He wasn't annoying as much as he was a power-hungry, abusive hypocrite who I wanted to die in a fire from his first scene on. And that wasn't a hyperbolic sort of hate. It was a struggle not to throw things at the tv screen every time he appeared.

I don't hate easily and I usually don't get aggressive over fictional characters but he was special in that regard. Never hated anyone in fiction like him. I'm not sure if I hated anyone in real life like I hated him.

Wow, no real favorite 'ship? What about Jaye and that guy on "Wonderfalls" (...Eric?)

We have very similar philosophies on finales. Including the fact that we both hated the Buffy finale (I actually thought it provided next to no closure).
