I honestly did not know that "Leave It to Beaver" and "The Dick Van Dyke Show" had series finales. However, I clean forgot about "All in the Family's" finale.

I got a 9/10. According to the quiz I got #1 wrong but I think I am right. On season 8 of All in the Family Mike, Gloria and Joey leave for California. But season 9 brings us Stephanie. Still AITF for season 9. Archie Bunker's Place starts the following year.

Missed a few but remember reading that early TV didn’t often have story continuity or finale endings to wrap up the series. I always wondered why Barney Fife just left and never married Thelma Lou (until a far later special) but no one acted like it was odd and Thelma was just gone, never mentioned. Same with I Love Lucy. I always looked for the finale and there want one. Just a last episode.

I meant wasn’t one, sorry for the typo.

What really qualifies as a series finale ?
I guessed on most, but, I’m still not totally sure. I think that I have a vague idea. Some are more decisively finales than others. In my opinion.

10/10 Wish Lost In Space had had a final episode. They are still out there trying to find Alpha Centauri.

8/10. I have a book by Russell Johnson, the Professor on "Gilligan's Island", who was mad that CBS didn't have a final send-off. They were even gonna be renewed for a 4th season but CBS pulled the plug at the last minute. But NBC came to the rescue in 1978 with a 2-hour movie, "Rescue from Gilligan's Island"

Read that book, pretty interesting. Especially when he recounts his early days in Hollywood.

Russell Johnson was in some classic 1950s sci Fi films before becoming the Professor on Gilligan's Island. It Came from Outer Space is one, This Island

This Island Earth I meant. A couple of others I think, and was on Twilight Zone as well.

A couple of Twilight Zones, in fact, for Mr. Johnson, both involving time travel..."Execution" and "Back There".

Does anyone know if "Renegade" had a series finale? Did Reno Raines ever clear his name, and did Dutch Dixon get arrested?

Haha. Somehow they overlooked that one!

I don't know a lot about that show, but have seen a few episodes on H&I. It's not a bad show.

8/10 The best and first series finale was "The Fugitive".

Any thoughts on worst finale ever? I’m going with Barnaby Jones. Great show that was ended with a failed spinoff attempt. Worst finale ever.

St. Elsewhere! The whole show never really existed!

I already posted my review of the Mork & Mindy finale, but save a space for Dallas (JR is taunted for the whole show by the Devil about how much he's hurt everybody in his life, and off-camera we hear a gunshot; it took until the reboot to reveal that he didn't commit suicide but instead shot at the Devil and shattered a mirror).

Or "My Name Is Earl", where we get the cliffhanger revelation that Joy's *second* child isn't actually Crab Man's kid (like her first was) but we never find out whose he is.

Green Acres was in the quiz here. They ended with not one, but TWO, failed spinoffs to close the series.

9/10. Seems the Rural Purge was the worst perpetrator of no finales.
