I don't think anyone cried over the cancellation of According to Jim, which managed to stay on the air seemingly due to some kind of deal with the devil, for eight cruel seasons. But 2009 also saw the end of some of our favorite shows here at TV Squad.

Some of these series finales left us in tears, some of them sparked debate, and a few even left us wondering, "what did I just watch?"

After the jump you'll find a list of six notable series finales for 2009. Feel free to share your thoughts about the finales in the comments, and don't forget to tell us about your favorites that didn't make the list. (And needless to say, there be spoilers below!)

TV Squad Ten: Shows that deserve to have their own video game

TV shows that deserve to be video gamesThere is nothing inherently wrong with turning a TV series into a video game spinoff. It can fill in the gaps between seasons to quell the viewers' hunger, let audiences explore characters from new perspectives and even give the more hardcore couch potatoes some much needed exercise even if they only burned 1/100ths of a calorie solely through their thumbs.

The problem is video game developers pick TV shows that should never even become a travel sized board game. Developers have given the greenlight to games based on shows like American Idol, Desperate Housewives and even ... Grey's Anatomy?!? I hope that last one was a first-person shooter.

There are far better shows that offer far more entertaining elements for a kick-ass video game. These are the shows that should be next in line for a pixelated re-treatment.

Reaper refuses to abandon all hope

The cast of TV's There are a lot of shows with their heads on the chopping block, but one that truly deserves a stay of execution is furiously wiggling its head out of the neck brace.

Show producers are negotiating with local CW affiliates to bring Reaper back on Sunday nights next season in syndication. The deal could also bring the show to cable.

The Hollywood Reporter, however, notes that either scenario is a bigger long shot than Roseanne's chances of getting another crack at singing the National Anthem at a Padres' home game.

Reaper's season two rushing to DVD

Reaper The CWThey're really rushing this one out. Reaper's season two will hit DVD June 9 -- only two weeks after the season ends on The CW!

The DVD was originally set for an even earlier release, June 2, but the studio pushed it back a week for reasons unknown.

I'm really looking forward to this set. Reaper is one of those amazing but little-watched shows I can't seem to shut up about. I strongly encourage fans to pick this set up in June.

Like all good genre shows these days, Reaper will probably be "on the bubble" as the season winds down. The show's executive producers are reportedly leaving, and the fate of the show is hanging in the air. Good DVD sales might help Reaper get renewed for a third season. (Well, it couldn't hurt.)
