I can't remember a tv series finale that I was more happy with.
I loved the US ending. I had no idea they would go that direction, I thought it was funny and new. The British version has Sam deciding that his whole modern world is so bad, he decided to commit suicide so he could maybe have a few seconds in the past. Changed him from a strong man trying to bring new ideas to the old culture to a pathetic loser. The British ending almost made me wish I hadn't watched the show.
