    I agree with this with regards to the 3 series you mention.

    While I didn't love Seinfeld finale at the time, I see now that the point of the series is that the 4 characters kept each other in a figurative jail.
    So it makes sense that they end up in a literal jail, with the last line of the series being the exact same line that opened the series.

    Breaking Bad was fitting. Not groundbreaking, but it was good. I thought they should have ended darker, but that would have been so unpopular.

    No one has mentioned the Mad Men finale, which I loved. The last 1/2 season was overall a poor one, but IMO they nailed the ending.
    One of the best ever. (Many disagree with this.)

    “I’d like to buy the world a Coke . . .”

    Brilliant.

    Regarding Daenerys, I suppose if we consider the fact that her father was the "Mad King", maybe insanity could have played a role in her change in character. But they should have at least given us indications that it was happening.

    I ultimately don't have problems with the story arc, it is more the execution. Like I said, they for some reason decided they needed to try and jam two seasons of storytelling into 1 shortened season. So what made the show great in the first place, character development and complex twisted stories, got thrown to the side in a rush to wrap it all up.

    I started watching it when the last season started and finished in time to see that finale live. So a little too early for me to binge watch
