When Story Arcs Lead to Cancellation. Scott Nance talks about how the final two seasons of Buffy the Vampire Slayer resulted in the inability of the show to garner new viewers, the lack of stand alones, and how all shows should show a balance between story-arc and stand alone episodes.
"The result is that series ultimately became impenetrable for new viewers, the episodes themselves suffered with no space for other stories to be told, and Seasons 6 and 7 were arguably the weakest of the entire run. Season 7, particularly, has been widely criticized for way too much speechifying on the part of the title character."
