Question: I am shocked how some of your readers think Fargo should have been just a follow-up to the movie with let's see how Marge is doing since everyone else involved in the movie was either dead or in prison. I agree that the show is terrific. The episode last week was one of the most amazing episodes of TV I have ever seen.

TV's Most Memorable End Games

Suzanne Pleshette, Bob Newhart

That's a wrap! The stakes are rarely higher for a TV series than at the end of a season — whether it's signing off until next fall with a climactic grand gesture or taking a well-earned final bow. As part of TV Guide Magazine's Finale Preview issue (on newsstands this week), and reflecting the magazine's ongoing celebration of its 60th anniversary, we take a fond look at 60 of the best series and season finales of all time. We hate goodbyes, except when they're done this well.

Kevin Beggs' Watchlist: What Does He Love About Family Guy?

Kevin Beggs

Kevin Beggs, the president of Lionsgate's television group, may have helped introduce the world to some of the most culturally literate shows on TV, but when it's time for him to name his favorites, he recalls with glee an episode of Family Guy and utters just four words: "Bird Is the Word".

The most fun part of launching TVGuide.com's new mobile app is getting to have unexpected, enlightening conversations about TV with the incredibly smart, talented people who make it. That's why we're thrilled that Beggs, aka the man who has ushered shows like Mad Men, Weeds and Nurse Jackie into the cultural consciousness, has agreed to curate a channel on the app for us.  And why it's such a kick to find out that he's a Family Guy fan. "Seth MacFarlane has turned digression into an artform," he says. Beggs' next project, Nashville, premieres on ABC on Oct. 10 at 10/9c. (Full disclosure: TVGuide.com is owned by a partnership of Lionsgate and JP Morgan's One Equity Partners.)

But let's get down to brass tacks. Can he tell us all kinds of incriminating stories from behind the scenes of Mad Men? "There are many, but I would be killed if I divulged any of them," he jokes.

Here's Beggs' full list. Watch his video introduction to his watchlist below.

Premise: A wildly inventive chronicle of life---and death---at Boston's run-down St. Eligius Hospital carved a distinctive niche with an often surrealistic mix of gritty drama and dark humor. Superbly written and blessed with a fine cast that included future Oscar winners Denzel Washington and, occasionally, Helen Hunt, this most-eccentric medical series was also one of TV's most mature and imaginative hours. High point: the two-part 1986 story `Time Heals,' weaving flashbacks of long-time employees.
