    Funny, as the show ends, the good far outweighs the bad in my mind. First 4 years of excellence – that’s something most shows simply cannot seem to sustain anymore. Season 7 was redemptive to say the least. And through it all, the lead character kept us fastened tightly to him, making us care enough to ride the troughs with the crests. Adieu to one of the all time great, groundbreaking shows. I look forward to see what Michael C. Hall takes on next.
