What a rubbish ending to the series! I wasn't bothered by the Sopranos ending, I thought the Seinfeld ending was genius, but this ending is really kind of insulting.
i've seen only about 1 1/2 episodes of the BBC series, and it seemed much better to me. now having seen a couple episodes of Ashes to Ashes, it seems the BBC series of LoM ended very differently from the US one.
maybe the head writer never really liked the show at all.
