Why do I feel so empty & upset when a show I like ends even if it started suck?

Watching the final episode from the final season of a show before it goes off air forever always gets me excited but once I've watched it, I feel sad to see it go. Even if it had the perfect ending, even if I don't like the later seasons & want it to end

It feels like saying goodbye to an old friend

    Exactly!!! I always think the same thing!! I sat in the theater, right to the very end of the last Harry Potter movie, through every last credit, to the point the lights came on in the theater, just HOPING there would be a tiny teaser to something more. That was such a sad night. I did not want it to end. I think it is because so much of your emotion is invested in these characters, and they actually do end up feeling like a friend you have to say goodbye to.

    Just exactly for the reason you said.  We get to know the characters and they become like old friends.

    I often just play it from the beginning but don’t watch it. Just have it playing in the corner of a room with the sound low while I’m doing something else
