perfect ending for TV's greatest series
25 February 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The series was already off the air for two years when I was born and I grew up watching all the reruns they show on TV with my mom. One day they aired the final episode on television and i was on my seat for the whole 3 hours. It begins with you crying and it ends with you crying more because all the characters you'd loved have left your lives after being their for you for over a decade. Never again will we hear those hilarious comments made by Hawkeye, Klinger wearing a dress, or that invisible man on the PA saying "Attention all personell, incoming wounded". The series ended the way it began years ago, made us laugh for the jokes and made us hurt during the worse of times. This should rank as the greatest finale of all time.
