LHOP Makes Fox News' List of TV's 10 Worst Series Finales

Life has kept me pretty busy lately, so I apologize for not updating this blog sooner. I hope to post a new survey and a new book of the month this weekend.

While checking the daily happenings at Fox, I came across an article about the long-running drama ER, which ended its run tonight. I didn't watch it. The family and I were at Disney on Ice--which is always a great show.

Fox News has compiled a list of TV's 10 Worst Series Finales and our beloved Little House on the Prairie came in at Number 5.

While Fox News didn't have many complaints about Hello and Goodbye, the last episode of Season 9, they were not overly kind about the blowing up of Walnut Grove in The Last Farewell, saying, "Note to future producers: Leave your audience with the illusion that somehow, somewhere, the place they've visited weekly for nearly 10 years actually still exists. Put down the gunpowder."

You can read the rest of Fox's comments on The Last Farewell here.

What do you think? Should the majority of Walnut Grove have been blown to bits? If you didn't care for how the series ended, how would you have ended it?

I look forward to your comments.

It wasn't that they blew up the town to end the series it was the fact that new town owners had bought the land and were taking over. So, the people of Walnut Grove wanted to make a point that someone couldn't come in and take what they created. I did not like the ending and would have written something different.

I was never a fan of the show after the first season, so I thought the final show was way over the top. To me it was just another of Landon's arrogant attempts to control every aspect of the show. He did not want anyone making another LH show later and using the props. I have actually met people who think Walnut Grove was blown up in real life.
