Coming October 2022: "The Last Folk Hero: The Life and Myth of Bo Jackson"

Final episodes …

I’m a sucker for final episodes of TV shows. Especially great final episodes.

Growing up, I recall the finale to Family Ties being something of a Christmas-like event. Everyone gathered around the TV (well, maybe just my brother and I) and felt truly sad bidding farewell to characters we’d watched for much of our childhood.

Anyhow, here are five of my favorite farewells. Man, YouTube at its best …

1. Family Ties

2. Newhart (I wasn’t actually a fan of the show. But this was brilliant).

3. Happy Days (Not the best, but the best show)

4. Cheers (I remember people hated how this ended. I didn’t).

5. M*A*S*H (A show I rarely watched. But everyone seemed to love the way it went out).
