Which you shouldn't, because the ending does not in anyway hamper the brilliance of seasons 2-4. We've already had fairly terrible seasons in 5, 6, and 7, so the final season being underwhelming wasn't much of a surprise to the people I've spoken with.
If anything, I'd just stop after 4. Watching 5+ after that in spare time isn't entirely fruitless, as some of the plots and individual episodes can be good, but not worth going out of one's way for.
