    I think their obligation is to their fans, and optimism, not to pessimistically hedging their bets.

    Imagine if the season finale literally had a placard at the end that said "Well, hope you enjoyed this - and we wrapped it up nicely - because we don't know if we'll be back. And we don't know if you'll be back either." That has a way of becoming a self-fulfilling prophecy.


    But assuming a story will remain popular is an American habit.

    You might appreciate British series more. My wife does. They have a fixed length, with a smoothly-curved story arc, resulting in a definite ending.
    Oh, please.

    I've watched and enjoyed plenty of U.S. shows.

    Cliffhangers are common, but not generally as annoying as the thing I got grumpy about.

    Not just movies; more of a "life" cliche.

    Chimps pretending to be human, or dressed up as human, make me angry.

    I don't know why.

    Maybe simply because it requires no imagination, or is not nearly as saccarine-cute as they think it is.
