Las serie 24 horas y su final…o no

Serie de televisión 24 horas

Hay algunas series de televisión que parecen acabar tras algún fatídico suceso que acontece al protagonista…pero finalmente y tras un giro inesperado por parte de los guionistas la serie continúa.

Uno de estos casos es 24 la serie protagonizada por Kiefer Sutherland y que lleva ya unas cuantas temporadas en nuestras pantallas.

La serie cuenta con Evan Katz y Manny Coto como showrunners, término con el que se conoce a los guionistas creadores de la serie y que además se convierten en productores de la misma, y ellos son los responsables de que, al menos por el momento, la serie finalice esta temporada…aunque no descartan un regreso tal y como comentan en The Hollywood Reporter:

«24: Live Another Day managed to unleash a finale even bleaker for Jack Bauer than his 24 series finale sendoff four years ago.

Jack (Kiefer Sutherland) is in custody of the Russians, Audrey (Kim Raver) is dead and poor President Heller (William Devane) doesn’t have long before Alzheimer’s leaves him unable to even remember Audrey. But is there still time to turn it around and get Jack out of Moscow?

Showrunners Evan Katz and Manny Coto say more 24 is definitely a possibility.

«All it really takes is a story that fires us up. That’s what got us excited about doing this season,» Coto told The Hollywood Reporter during a call with reporters. «I think what would draw us back if that were ever to happen – and that’s definitely up in the air – would be we or somebody presents an interesting take on Jack, on Jack’s character, and where he is, which would suggest a great season.»

While Audrey’s death was painful for Jack, it was even worse for President Heller, whose only small comfort is that he will forget that pain. Coto said he drew inspiration for Heller’s grief from his own parents, who lost a child.

«Having seen how my parents reacted to such a tragedy, there really is almost no tragedy worse than to lose one of your children,» Coto said.

Coto considers Heller’s Alzheimer’s an extra layer to his loss.

«It’s a very dark place. It’s a thought that’s tinged with an even greater layer of tragedy, not only the fact that he’s going to forget his daughter, but he’s also going to forget the fact that she died in this horrible way. It felt like an honorable way to touch upon his situation this season,» Coto said. «Devane played it beautifully. It was one of his best moments in the season. We were very happy with the way it came out.»

The finale also marked the first time the show made a time jump, going ahead 12 hours for the final scenes of the episode…»

Las series de Televisión con peor y mejor final.

Peores finales de series de tv

Cuando un guionista crea una serie de televisión siempre tiene un final previsto para la primera temporada y una evolución para temporadas siguientes. El problema es que cuando año tras año la serie evoluciona no siempre finaliza como se pensó años atrás…para bien o para mal. Pero acaba en algunos casos de forma imprevista.

Indiewire nos presenta 16 finales imprevistos, algunos buenos, muy buenos, otros no tanto.

¿Cuál serie te ha gustado más o menos en su final?

«The world is still debating the relative merits and detractions of the final episode of Vince Gilligan’s meth-world saga «Breaking Bad,» with some quarters feeling that the finale was a little too cleanly told while others were filled with the sense of contentment from knowing that the final hour was a satisfying conclusion to a five-season arc that turned a meek chemistry teacher (Bryan Cranston) into a ruthless criminal kingpin. There are few, probably, who would take the stance that the last hour of «Breaking Bad» was one of the best series finales ever (or one of the worst). It simply was what it was. An efficiently told, occasionally silly hour of television that tied up a number of loose ends (maybe too many), while still leaving room for small areas of speculation and mystery. But as divisive as the episode might have been, it is nothing compared to the series finales of yore.

In many ways, series finales are like breakups, or maybe deaths, since you have usually been with a show for many years. In that time, you grow to have a relationship with that show, overlook some of its flaws, make excuses for its shortcomings (it was going through a rough patch in season 3!) and look forward to it week after week, even if you know it’s bad for you. For most of us, the time we spent, say, puzzling over «Lost» far eclipses the amount of work we’ve ever put into an actual relationship. Which speaks volumes. But still.

All good things must come to an end and even if we are living through the «second golden age of television,» these series will too have to come to a close at some point, with a number of high-profile shows (among them: «True Blood» and «Mad Men») coming to a hopefully fruitful conclusion in the next couple of years. Parting is such sweet sorrow, especially if it’s a show on cable. Below, you can find the finales that left us satisfied and the ones that let us down.

The Best Finales

«The Wire» («-30-,» original airdate: March 9, 2008)
Despite the widespread acknowledgement that it came at the end of weakest of the show’s five seasons, «The Wire» finale still earns its stripes for how it gracefully rounded off the epic Baltimore procedural that even now remains an unassailable touchpoint for many of us here. After all, even Peter Griffin’s hypnotically induced mantra ” ‘Breaking Bad’ is the best TV show I’ve ever seen,” has to be qualified with “except maybe ‘The Wire.’ ” Of course a great series doesn’t necessarily mean a great finale—in fact, where a film derives a lot of its shape and its purpose from the fact that it ends, a TV show is kind of defined by having to carry on; one of the obvious reasons why so many finales disappoint the loyal fan base is that they feel artificial to the format. But «The Wire,» which had time called on it by its creator David Simon (who’s become somewhat crotchety at all the adulation after the fact), performed its dismount well because quite aside from the practical business of tying up the season’s plot points, it revisited everything that had made the show what it was and never fell into the trap of trying to dazzle us with last-minute pyrotechnics. Instead in the feature-length final episode we got an intelligent, understated ending, one that played to the great strength of episodic TV and to the great, great strength of this particular show: the sense that the situations and characters were real and alive outside those 60-minute glimpses that we all devoured so avidly. In fact, we’d go so far as to say that after a less-than-convincing fifth season (boo to McNulty’s fake serial killer, among other issues), the finale in many ways gave us our show back. A great deal of that happened during the elegiac grace note montage, as McNulty (Dominic West) looks out over Baltimore, that touches briefly on so many of those unforgettably real characters, some of whom we hadn’t seen for seasons (even the dockland mafiosi from the almost self-contained Season 2 get their moment). In some cases they’re seen in a moment of change or achievement, but mostly it’s just a sliver of their lives, lives that we can somehow believe go on, through more ups and downs and bits in between, even though we’re not watching them anymore.  Anyway, we see enough to know what probably happens next: the new generation will play out a lot like the last one, because the more the game done changed, the more the game done stayed the same.

«Six Feet Under» («Everyone’s Waiting,» original airdate: August 21, 2005)
Sure, there are all sorts of things that happen in the last episode of «Six Feet Under,» written and directed by series creator Alan Ball, including tons of great ghost Nate moments (which are always good), but what the final episode of the series will forever be remembered for are its last few moments. As Claire finally leaves the funeral home (and the family), she starts to cry, and we do too: moments begin to flash by as she’s driving away, first of the events and milestones that are coming up, some of which she will miss (Brenda and Nate’s baby’s first birthday, her gay brother David’s wedding) and then, the stab-you-in-the-heart kicker that’s only befitting a shot called «Six Feet Under»—every… character’s… death. The deaths are varied (one character drops dead on a cruise ship, another is shot in an armed robbery), but always end with the show’s signature fade to white (and the character’s name and birth and death date). It’s absolutely devastating (the Sia song doesn’t exactly help matters), punctuated, at the very end, by Claire’s own death, a fitting juxtaposition as she embarks on really starting her life. As the final moments for a show obsessed with death, it’s utterly perfect, and as a comment on the nature of series finales, it’s even better: there is no door left unopened, no possibility for spin-offs or movie adaptations. You saw how everyone, and not just the series itself, ended, in a spectacularly sad way. This was the ultimate bit of Alan Ball audacity, one that turned out to be a stunning ode to mortality and all of the experiences we collect in our long journey towards the grave; if you weren’t openly weeping, then you probably weren’t watching…»
