  • Teen titans suffered a lot more from the fact it had to end so abruptly. It really felt like they were setting up for something and then just nothing.

  • So happy that King of the Hill wasn't on here. Hank Hill and his family were more wholesome and good to each other than any other family from similar shows (The Simpsons, Family Guy, American Dad, etc.). I mean, hell, Hank and Peggy never abused Bobby like the Griffins abuse Meg or Homer abuses Bart.

  • This is why it's actually better to add a proper ending to a series instead of trying to milk it dry for eternity. Because if you go to the well too many times people will eventually grow bored with it.
