Revenge to end after it's season finale

http://www.ew.com/article/2015/04/29...finale-season4

I gave up mid-way in the 2nd season. My wife stopped after the 3rd.

It became too much like a daytime soap opera.

Don't kid yourselves, it was ALWAYS a daytime soap opera

I have liked it. Not really sad though as this is a natural time to end it after the events of the last few episodes.....

It's way past dead, but at least things have actually happened this season. Last season it was like they were trying to run out the clock.

Lost interest in this one quite some time ago. This could have been made into a min-series and it still would have dragged out way too long.

How does it end after it's over?

My wife loves this show. I try to tell her it's a night time soap opera and that gets under her skin.

I've always thought the end would have both Emily and Victoria being dead.
Their respective friends to pick up the pieces. Charlotte will be a wreck.

I really enjoyed the first couple of seasons. Last season was awful, and I gave up after the first ep this season. I'll record the finale just to see how it all ends.

Once they killed
Spoiler:
Sammy the dog

I pretty much lost interest.

Looks like I watched through 317 so far.. I know I have the rest either on my Tivo or downloaded to an external drive. Even though I got sick of it, it was a decent 'light' show to sometimes watch while walking on the treadmill..

Not surprised in the least. I still watched it, but it became a chore.

I honestly thought they were writing to finish it off over the past few weeks anyway after
Spoiler:
Amanda came out as Amanda

I've been ready for them to tie up the loose ends for several weeks and had no idea they weren't already cancelled, but the writers may have had the same thought. I loved the first couple seasons but after that it lost its energy as they just kept killing off people so others could never be happy, "you're happy? BAM run over by a truck"

Pretty much with the others. Started out great and each season went downhill. I was ready to stop watching after last season, but at least now I know I can watch a few more and have watched all the episodes.

I like being a completest. It is one of the reasons I kept watching this season.

How does this effect syndication? My understanding is that they want at least 5 seasons or 100 episodes.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/100_episodes

Quote:
In recent years, the minimum number of episodes for off-network, stripped syndication has been set at 88 (typically four seasons of 22 episodes), although some programs have been relatively successful in syndication with fewer episodes.
Revenge will have 89 episodes.
Hot in Cleveland got a syndication deal for only 80 episodes.

I watched about 2/3 of the first season, then lost interest...! Nice if they are able to wrap it up cleanly though.

Yeah, I'm one who will keep watching a show even when I know it ends on a cliffhanger.. I had been semi-spoiled already by what I already knew (which was spoiler-ized above)... so I thought it was ending on purpose.

In other words, I hope they DO wrap it up storywise, even though that won't determine my some eon finishing up the run.

Wife & I loved season one as an entertaining, well cast guilty pleasure.
S2 became a chore and we lost interest.
Too bad because S1 had episode endings making the wait for the next ep nerve wracking.

I watched the first season and then on and off a bit and then stopped.

I just watched the series finale and - yeah that was OK and neatly wrapped up with a bow on top.

If you ever doubted it was a soap opera
Spoiler:
the double gun shoot out made me laugh out loud


There are 3 or 4 characters that were main players that were no where to be seen so I assume I missed their demise.
