4.27 Who Will Be the Family Wizard (Series Finale)

Wizard of Waverly Place title card
That Wizards of Waverly Place episode sucked.

 What a disappointing ending to a fantastic series. Unfortunately, it was anticlimactic and unsatisfying. The acting was so bad that I couldn't tell if María Canals Barrera was serious or sarcastic. The most emotional part of the episode was when Justin and Max Russo finally forgave and apologized to Alex, and even that was expected; it had been done before. 

Honestly, it was the worst moment in Wizards history. I felt nothing. It didn't make me laugh, cry, feel sorry for any of them. At least, not as much as it was supposed to. It was truly disappointing.

 I don't even want to know what was going through Vince Cheung, Ben Montanio, and Todd J. Greenwald's (writers of the episode) minds when they wrote that and decided that it was the ending to Diney Channel's longest running series since That's So Raven.

Cast of Wizards of Waverly Place
It's tragic really, but I'll still always remember Wizards by my personal favorite episode, "Wizards vs. Werewolves"; it contained action, comedy, romance, and most importantly, had depth. Selena Gomez's heartbreaking scene in the middle of that episode really had me rooting for her. And, let's not forget her amazing performance in "Wizards of Waverly Place: The Movie". Her character developed so much in that movie and it was full of so many great scenes. That was the most definitely the best moment in Wizards history. 

I just feel that "Who Will Be the Family Wizard" didn't live up to all the hype and certainly did not deserve to be the final note in the series. It seemed like something they just threw in to end the show. Like nothing was thought out twice, like they just tied up the loose ends in the simplest way possible, regardless of the lack of content.

It's bedtime; and I say watch, don't wait.
