David Allen Perrin - it was my understanding that Whedon didn't want Coulson to be a part of the show, but it was forced on him by the network.

Besides the pilot and having an executive producer credit, I'm not sure how much involvement he really had in the show.

Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed the finale, but I can't help but feel that FitzSimmons' plan was to have SHIELD just bounce around in an alternate timeline until they could find Kora and have her power the Care Bear Stare on the Chronicoms.

It was somewhat predictable in the end. For example, of course Fitzsimmons must procreate.  However, I really enjoyed the series. I think it holds up well as a companion to the movies. I'll miss these guys.

I really dug the end.  The time travel logic was dense enough that I actually got a bit lost (which is sort of rare for me, with the only other time I can recall that happening was in "Primer") but I appreciated that aspect, too.  And I really love that while it didn't namecheck anything, the whole thing served as a variation on Endgame, with the usual AoS brilliant spin.  

I'll miss this show, man.

I watched the final two parts on Saturday. All in all, I thought Agents of SHIELD was a fun show through the years. I really enjoyed these last two 13 episode seasons, since it had much less filler in them. I grew to like the characters and I hope we'll see at least some of them again somewhere in the MCU.

It occurred to me that this is the last tv (non-streaming) show that I watched. This really was an ending for me! 

I'll miss having it around to watch.

It was nice how they played off what's developed in the movies without being tied to it, the way they were in Season 1. 
Makes me think that, increasingly, this is a divergent timeline that's spun off from the MCU--probably before Talbot/Graviton (that's a real big problem for the Avengers to overlook)--and become its own thing, which... works for me pretty well.
And I like how the last shot tied in to the first episode. Nice to see Coulson's baby again.

Its rare that a TV show gets better but they really turned a corner in season 4. I found the ending of season 7 to be overly convoluted, I got lost in some of the time travel logic (as Dave K. said). Over all enjoyed the show.

I agree. I found the first three seasons just entertaining. But then, season 4 was a clear improvement, and since then, each season felt better than the previous one.
That makes the farewell harder, after almost 8 years.
Unlike with Arrow, with AoS I felt a lump in my throat.
