Top 5 TV Shows That Ended in 2014

Posted by Unknown Saturday, January 3, 2015
As 2014 came to an end, so did many well-loved shows. The finale of a show can sometimes be heartbreaking, especially if you are emotionally invested in the characters. Sometimes the writers give the fans what they want, but many times they, such as in the case of the Dexter finale, do whatever they want. I tried my best to leave our major spoilers for those of you who have not seen the endings, but be aware that there are some spoilers.

Being Human

Modeled after the UK version, this supernatural Syfy show lasted only four seasons. The cancellation came as a shock for many fans that'd been waiting patiently for Sally to find "her door" and for Josh to accept his curse. The show followed two best friends, Aiden (a vampire) and Josh (a werewolf), as they move into a house haunted by a ghost named Sally. Throw in a little bit of vampire monarchy, rogue wolves, and witchcraft, and you have one of the most unique supernatural shows ever written. Hands down, this show takes first place for being the best series finale ever written. In all, I was satisfied with the end game. I didn't throw any objects at my TV or mope around in my pajamas for a week. Everyone ended up with the right people and all the loose story lines were tied up.

How I Met Your Mother

This show continued well past its expiration date, and while I trailed off for the final few seasons, I tuned in for the finale in hopes that I would finally get to see who the mother was. As that last scene played on my TV, I threw my hands up in the air and screamed in frustration. I waited all these years and rooted for certain couples, only to never to meet the mother? While I won't give away any major spoilers, we can conclude that it was one of the worst endings to a show I've ever watched.

I know, I know. I had to have been one of the only people who watched this show, but I really enjoyed this short-lived CW series. It was a science-fiction version of Romeo and Juliet that was both heartbreaking and enjoyable. The only annoying thing about this show was the fact that the finale held too many cliffhangers, and fans will never find out what happened after that massive explosion. It's like Firefly all over again. Who lived? Who died? Guess we will never know.

True Blood

Many people say not to compare books to their TV counterpart, but fans couldn't help but complain about this unsatisfying ending. While the Sookie and Eric romance became a big part of the novel series, we never got to see this play out on the small screen. Instead, we see Sookie hook up with every male on the show except her brother, thank God! The last season was filled with untimely deaths, twisted storylines, and crazy hookups. Just like the book, the ending fell short and had me stomping around like a crazed woman for days.

Warehouse 13

To me, this show was perfection. We had funny characters with super sleuth story lines, and after following the government agents around for 5 years, it was sad to see them go. The last season wrapped up too quickly, and we could tell they weren't expecting a cancellation. We never got to fully explore new agent Steve Jinx. Even the romance between main characters Pete and Myka took a backseat to Claudia finally becoming the warehouse caretaker. While the vibe of the show ended on a good note, fans had to use their imagination to really figure out what happened.

There were many other shows that ended in 2014 that I don't watch but that I know fans were sad to see go, such as Sons of Anarchy and  The Legend of Korra. What shows were you sad to see end? Do you think any of these shows should have been renewed? Please leave a comment and let us know.
