    A show I think did a great job of ending at the right time is the good place. They had a plan right from season one and once it was executed, they ended it. A show that was cut off too soon is freaks and geeks. It was cancelled and there are a lot of open ends. I'm fine with some open ends but it really was a great show and deserved more time to carry out it's story. The characters still had plenty of development left and we get hints of where it might go next at the end but nothing concrete

    Shows more comedy shows I think have the problem of being short term they don’t think abt the ending or it isn’t a big deal to them for example I think one piece for me is the perfect example of a show built to last, they give u the luffys goal from the very start to be the king of the pirates and he’s going to do that but it’s a long journey so the huge amount of episodes makes sense, the writer knew how big the story wud become and had everything planned to go on for a long time unlike other shows like bleach where they ran it dry until nothing was left

    Scrubs is... both. But not by fault of the Bill Lawrence. Seasons 1 through 8 was perfect, and is in my opinion the best sitcom out there. Then S9 happened and completely ruined everything that 8 had built, established and left hanging. It's cool though, just corperate involvement etc. The show is unaffected from 1 through 8 so S9 can be treated like the spinoff it was meant to be.

    In the episode where Michael left I was bawling, it was such an emotional finale and you can imagine my disappointment when I realize there were more seasons. I didn’t actually watch the last ones because I wanted to remember the good memories of that show and I don’t think I’m going to ever revisit those last episodes. It was the same for me with the Simpsons I stopped when it stopped being a good show in my opinion which is around the time Matt Groening left (after season 9).

    Ended good: Good place ended where it needed to. I’m so thankful they did what they wanted even though they could’ve go on. Every season 12/13 episodes of 20 minutes. Amazing. Ended bad: I recently got into watching scrubs and currently on season 9. I hate season 9. All the old characters are worse versions of themselves and it isn’t funny anymore. I do love Denise, Drew and Cole but Lucy is just a whiny teen and since she is ‘the new Jd’ I put of watching it every time, while I binged the first 8 seasons 😅 I do like dr Kelso more and more the farther I come. Should get another season: I think they ended it good but I’d love another season of good omens. But I’m afraid season 1 is so well written and plotted that everything after will just disappoint

    i refuse to accept the finale of how i met your mother. why did we spend 9 seasons waiting for ted to meet his future wife only for her to die in the next episode. also why did barney and robin have their crazy on and off tumultuous relationship for several seasons that led to them getting married only for them to get divorced in the next episode. like the whole last season was about barney and robins wedding and then immediately they’re divorced. it was such a bad execution. oh, and don’t even get me started on the finale of game of thrones. the writers deserve jail time for what they did

    You know that a show has the perfect length, if you're feeling actually sad when it ends. If it ends too early, you'll be angry. If it ends too late, you'll just not care about it anymore.

    Tbh, a show I think had a perfect ending, but stretched on was Glee. The 3rd season finale was great, that could've just been the ending for the whole show, but then they made a season 4, and now the whole show's reputation got ruined. In my head, Glee ended after season 3 so...... yea.

    Psych did it good despite being 8 seasons long, great show, and Arrow is a show that I adore because I'm a Green Arrow fanboy but I think went on way to long whatever way you look at it whether it being the original plan to end after 5 seasons to match with the five years of flashbacks or adding season 8 after the pretty solid season 7 finale that felt like the real series finale, but I digress.

    You mentioned shows that seem to end at the perfect time, and for me, the one that immediately came to mind was Wander Over Yonder, a cartoon aired on Disney XD made by Chris McCracken. WOY was incredibly important to me when I watched it in high school, it had such interesting characters and upbeat, hopeful story arcs that helped me through my depression. I sometimes wish that it had more than two seasons, it does feel like the show was canceled before the writers were done with it, but the ending was so perfect and, again, hopeful, even after the main antagonist of the second season basically caused a galactic apocalypse, that it feels like a third season would have wrung it too dry and tainted my perception of it. Wander Over Yonder is a masterpiece in large part because of its beautiful, if premature, ending.

    When talking about 70s show you mention “a bunch of friends hanging out” and complain about the ending of the show, but look at your own life and everyone else’s, you end up in weird places you wouldn’t expect away from those friends you had and it isn’t always what everyone wants. Oddly realistic.

    Talking about shows that ended perfectly, Gravity Falls, a Disney cartoon, ended after 2 seasons, even though, they could stretch it out, but the creator didn't want it to get boring, so they ended it, and Disney respected their decision, and so it ended perfectly after the last arc of it.

    I think a good example of a show running out of drama is Gilmore girls. They really skewed my view of Lorelei by making her run to Chris when she was hurt by Luke, and then MARRY HIM?????? The entire seventh season took away everyone’s development for the sake of drama and I’ll die on that hill.

    The Spongebob Squarepants Movie was the PERFECT ending to the show. But here we are well over a decade later with no end in sight. In fact quite the opposite as they're making unnecessary spinoffs that the original creator, Stephen Hillenburg, was opposed to while he was alive.

    I watch a lot of anime and the way anime is formatted it pretty much can't run longer than it should. You dont just get more seasons of anime anime is an adaptation of the original manga (japanese comics). The manga only lasts as long as the creator wants them cause manga are just long running weekly books.

    I would say one show that i think ended greatly without stretching out the storyline was Schitts creek. For me the show started out a little slow, but after episode 8 of season one, the show flew and only got better. The ending was wonderful and it was a fulfilling conclusion to the six seasons that the show produced.
