EW’s latest list, “23 TV Shows That Missed Cue for a Graceful Exit”, suggests that Gilmore Girls SHOULD have ended a season earlier.
The list lines up shows and where they ended with where the author *thinks* the series should have ended. For Gilmore Girls, they suggest the series should have finished at Season 6:
Where to End It: The season 6 finale, written by married showrunners Amy Sherman-Palladino and Daniel Palladino, in which Lorelai winds up in bed with baby-daddy Christopher.
Badness Avoided: The showrunners’ departure turned the show into a bad waxwork imitation of itself in the lunatic last season. Sometimes, it’s better to end on a cliffhanger than a long, slow descent.
Do you agree?
