Don't make me your sketch pad
What got me was the concept they had no idea what story they were telling, made it up as they went along, wrote in dozens of plotlines they couldn't finish (Rosalyn's crusade, anyone?), yet some people are still raving about the "satisfying conclusion." Give mea break.
It's not just that it's lazy storytelling, it's the advertising -- "all questions will be answered.," etc., and pretending they knew exactly where the story was going. If you don't know where the story is going, admit it, so I can better choose how to spend my rare entertainment time.
When I recorded NOCTURNAL, I told all of you from square one this was a first draft, and I wasn't sure where it was going (even though I knew the end scene). DO NOT BULLSHIT YOUR FANS. If they had come out and said they were making up a poorly plotted fantasy/magic adventure story, just without the dwarves and elves, then I wouldn't have watched.
There was a phrase by a band Type O Negative that said: "Don't mistake a lack of talent for genius." While the show was brilliant and I loved most of the episodes, and will definitely watch again, don't mistake an ambiguous, lazy ending that punks out the fans as "genius."
We deserved better for all the time we put in.
