People are going to have to make their own minds up about the ending. Personally speaking, the first time I watched CJ, when it was first airing and a few people were posting it to usenet with weeks going by between episodes, I thought there wasn't much sense of closure at all with the ending. But when I bought the R2J DVD set and had the opportunity to watch the show under better circumstances, I actually thought the ending was very well done, where the writers did a great job of providing closure for the major storyline of the 1st season, while opening up some real WTF possibilities for a second season. I don't know if that had more to do with the fact that I was able to watch the season at a more reasonable pace, or that it was my second viewing, so I understood everything a little better, probably a little of both, but I will be interested in seeing what people view the series for the first time will think. I will say though that there is much better closure to the finale of CJ than to other shows that got canceled mid-drift, like Twin Peaks, Farscape, Carnivale etc. Not that that's saying much, but still.
