100 Words, 100 Days: Day 98. On Series Finales.

Harry Pearce and the spies of MI5: Spooks.

We put down our favourite book, one that has travelled with us for nearly ten years, and we can’t help feeling sad. The writer says there will be no more new stories involving characters we have come to love and care for. It is time to move on. There is of course a closure of sorts; but we know in our hearts that their stories go on. Only no one will write about them anymore.

So it is with our favourite television shows. There will be no more Spooks after last night. I am sad. But life must go on.

  1. Some day I hope to have readers crying for another book in the Numbers series, FIVE, SIX, SEVEN, and more.

  2. And some shows go on long after an ending is warranted.

  3. There are few novel-series I have read that I did not read through to the end (or the end so far). The exception is the “Twilight” series. I wouldn’t have read the first if I hadn’t been goaded by one of my son’s friends.

    However, there a quite a few TV series that I gave up watching long before they went off the air. When you start knowing what’s going to happen or be said before the first two minutes are up, then it’s time to either move on, or become a script writer.

  4. I know exactly how you feel. I hated losing “Murder She Wrote,” “Boston Legal” and “Law and Order C.I.” Nobody asked me if I wanted them cancelled.
