It is widely agreed that shows like Lost and Battlestar Galactica ended on a low note. I’ve also heard more than one person say the same for Quantum Leap. Although these shows were good overall, they shared endings that kinda sucked.
Which begs the question: Which SciFi shows had the best endings?

- Torchwood: Children of Earth premieres on BBC America on July 20th. Here is a 7-minute clip from the show. Perhaps I should watch Torchwood now.
