I sat down tonight and spent three hours watching the season finales for two shows that I faithfully watch, namely Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel. (Aside: Before I lose your respect I’ve been watching these shows for a while and I love the humour and the B-movie quality of them. Also Alyson Hannigan [aka Willow] is super cute). Both were excellent (I won’t get into the details because some of my foreign readers will not see these episodes for a couple more months) but let me tell you how much I hate cliff-hangers.
The finale of Buffy wasn’t really a cliff-hanger. Major changes will occur next season but everything from this season has been resolved, more or less. Angel on the other hand was a full-blown cliff-hanger. The fates of three of the main characters are up in the air and I have to wait minimum 4 months before I find out what happens.
I guess THEY do it so you don’t stray and stop watching the show forever because the season ended. I’ve always disliked cliff-hangers. By torturing me you can’t make me love you anymore!!!! I’m not into S&M you television corporate bastards!!!! 🙂
