  • Updated 4 months ago
We all don't like them, but they exist. We wait to find out next season, "What Happened". Which of these season ending episodes ranked at 8.0 and above is your favorite?

Suggest all you like.
Early limit of two per poll board member. More later if there is space.
Thanks.
Ed

You are an official poll board member.
Got a favorite or two.
Suggest it.
Whenever you see this,

Poll Board Members Poll Suggestion

You can suggest a related title, or picture or personality, depending on whats asked for.
I can show you how to put individual episodes of a series into a poll also, just like the above if you want to know how it is done.
Cheers

Pencho15, to be fair, many people suspect it to be one. Before Song of Ice and Fire George R.R. Martin was primarily known as a sci-fi author prone to jarring twists, so there might be a twist suggesting at some point that Game of Thrones is, actually, sci-fi, taking place in a larger universe and being either post-apocalyptic or a prequel to something science-fiction-esqe.

I had never heard anything like that so I was surprised to find a series with dragons armors and swords as sci-fi. I would be surprised if we got an ending like that and I think it would cause an uproar on many people, Me included. If it turns out to be sci-fi then it can be added, but I think ot would look funny if its based only in theories.

I've been thinking on this for a few days.
A reprint. It sounds science fiction like to me.

Wildfire is a flammable liquid which is created and controlled by the Alchemists' Guild, an ancient society of learned men using arcane knowledge and is now based in the city of King's Landing. Wildfire is a highly volatile material; when ignited, it can explode with tremendous force and the resulting fire burns so hot that water cannot extinguish it.

Put the same stuff in a flamethrower and its a Phaser!

Ed, I don’t think if I’m poll board member because I had interpreted that to mean the board that selects the IMDb polls. I am not. And the most annoying cliffhanger award goes to the several cliffhangers of the children’s sci-fi series Reboot On ABC. The episode “Web World Wars”(Season 2 episode 10, Feb 1, 1996) ended with a cliffhanger. The ABC canceled the show when Disney bought ABC. The series was picked up by the shift cable channel on Aug 20, 1997 and started it where the last episode left off and ran one full season and ended it with “End Program” (Jan 24, 1998) which ends in another cliffhanger and the station doesn’t air another season. In 2001, Cartoon Network airs the 4th season which is available as two TV movies (“Reboot: Daemon Rising” and “Reboot: My Two Bobs”) because they took the season’s 8 episodes and combined them into the two movies. The second film “Reboot: My Two BoBs” ends with another cliffhanger with the series main villain, Megabyte, returning. Not another episode has aired since. Talk about annoying!

If you make polls on these boards, your a member. Used to be Message Boards and Poll Boards. Now there is this. Jeorj and Act_1 are not officially members, nor is Vince. But they belong to Get Sat.

Poll Board Member is an old term from way back. There were fewer members in those days I believe. Not sure of it but I think it is so.

But 'J'  'A1' and  'V' while they do make suggestions, I have used one only. I would use their more of their suggestions if they would at least attempt to make a poll.

You are welcome as far as I'm concerned to make a suggestion weather or not I'm asking for suggestions or not.
Thanks
Ed

I would not know which episode to use on your suggestion.
Give me the appropriate URL and I'll put it in.
Don't forget the 8.0 and above rating requirement.

Either “Reboot: My Two BoBs” https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0298515/... or “Web World Wars” https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0782550/... as examples of the episodes of series ending with cliffhangers the never get resolved or an extremely long waite because the series got cancelled on that channel.

My vote would be Lost season 1, when the Hatch is opened and we are left wondering what's inside.

Here is one if you this consider this comicbook show a type of science fiction. Batman (1996 - 1968). This series used cliffhangers every other episode is its gimmick format of airing two shows a week with the 1st episode of the week ending in cliffhanger and the 2nd episode of the week resolving it. The first episode of the series, IMHO, was the best and most exciting, Hi, Diddle Riddle . It also shows parts of Wayne Manor that were never shown again.

The last episode of “Quantum Leap” https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0096684/..., where Dr. Sam Beckett tells his friend, Admiral Al Calavicci,(that character was an Admiral!?!?!?!?), that the leaps into the past and into other people’s bodies are going to get longer, harder and trickier because God Was now controlling the leaps and not men. Beckett has to go it alone without Al. Thus , with the promise of new jumps that never happens, the show went off the air.

Man, this series finale was as poetic as it was existential and heartbreaking.
