I often feel like that when I get to the end of a series. It's sad knowing you'll never see those characters again.
The weirdest thing happened to me for both Battlestar Galactica and Lost. I watched both of them on netflix well after the shows had aired. I ended up getting completely engrossed in both shows, often watching hours at a time. When it got down to the last episode or two, I ended up falling asleep .. into this halfway awake halfway nap thing where I only caught bits and pieces of the last episodes.
I never re-watched the ending for either shows, never really had the urge to. I did read how people were pretty upset about both though, so maybe it was my subconscious trying to protect me from a horrible ending to shows that I had really enjoyed.
Sorry for the bad English. English is my first and only language but Southern Louisiana public school system has taken its toll.
Yeah, it's a sad fact of life. Shows have to come to an end. Life hasn't been the same since Buffy slayed her last vampire.
As my avatar might indicate...I am sort of a Friends fan.
Get a grip man! It's CHEESE!
I think one of the particular things with the LOST ending is that it *is* so open-ended. There's world of stories not told. The island wasn't the end. Not for many of them.
It reminded me of The Sopranos ending, in that way. I was immediately struck with the thought - what happens to his family? Meadow? Anthony, Jr?
I'm killing myself the night after the final episode of Breaking Bad airs so I know what you mean.
LOST started pretty good then went to shit.... like most shows
Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened.

Ah well, atleast I know that both Code Geass and Bleach are coming back in 2013-2014 with a new and glorious season. I'l scream like a litle girl when I see the download link to Code Geass seasons 3 first episode. :P
For real that show was good for about 3 seasons at most mediocre for 2 and the final season was weak. They took this great setup to a story stretched it too thin and the final season its like they said lets just see how much bizarre shit we can leave unanswered. And the finale, dont get me started on that steaming pile, that was the worst possible ending they could have come up with. Deus ex machinas are a poor writers crutch, they use them when they are unable to fully craft a story's ending. And please save that weak ass argument about how they ended the show like it was the whole time leaving you qith qustions.
I felt the same way when Lost ended. The empty feeling eventually goes away but nothing will ever replace that show for me. I just got invested in my favorite characters and when it was over I felt like I lost them as friends. I had and have a great social life, I just really loved the show.
