What was wrong with it?
They spent a couple of episodes building up to them being severed outside work and he just figured out in the nick of time that his wife who he thought had died in real life was actually someone his innie worked with every day. It was a great way to end the season for me.
It just felt like a middle of an episode ending rather than season end. I guess I can look at that 2 ways, I was loving it and wanted more or it was frustrating as fuck! Milchick is definitely Johnson out of Peep Show as well.

You wait a whole season and get this, as soon as that happened I was so nope I'm out
Not sure what you're trying to say to be honest. Both the Severance and that Lost season finales are literally cliff-hanger endings, good ones at that, built upon story elements that have preceded them for the rest of the season. They make you want to immediately want to watch the next episode, and hence give the viewer anticipation for the next season. The Lost one is especially a bad example since the cold opening that immediately follows it in the first episode of Lost Season 2 is in the argument for the best opening scenes to an episode / season in a TV show of all time and wouldn't have had the same impact without that earlier ending. Say what you like about the later seasons of Lost but the first few were great TV.

It just didn't do it for me, which was a shame as it had people in it from other series I really liked.

I think severance is more nuanced as well because you know they're spilt in twain from the start, the mystery box is sitting on the table the whole time and the perspective just keeps shifting. Lost was too traditionally layered, like how Stargate SG-1 always started a new series with "so you thought they were the big bad, well think again"

I tried it. It did my fucking head in. Lost was just not my thing (at the time). I mean, I may have been over that whole freaky, oooooh, that bird is my mother shit at that time in my life.

Never seen a Prison Break either.

The first season of Prison Break was fantastic but they made the mistake of only ever planning for one season and then desperately trying to think up new story to stretch it out because it turned out to be was popular. If I remember right the 2nd and 3rd seasons were alright before it descended into farce. I don't think I even finished it and I definitely didn't watch the movie. Same with Heroes - started off brilliantly and then completely lost its way as it progressed.

I also quite liked Prison Break, but yeah, it lost its way pretty hard.

As mentioned by Emb, The Offer is very enjoyable and interesting. It sounds like it'll be shit but it's actually really good.

The final episode of obi wan is fantastic. Hayden Christensen did a wonderful job with a simple grin. And I love how they tied up a few loose ends.
