Video editor Celia Gómez created this compilation of the first and final shots of some of the best TV shows in recent times, and it's a fascinating look at both the progression of those shows and the conscious creative decisions that went into them. Many of the final shots are very careful allusions to the opening shots; others just emphasize how far the plot and its characters have come. Be warned, even though the clips are too short to really spoil anything, you will see the last shot of the following series: Hannibal, Twin Peaks, American Horror Story, Breaking Bad, Prison Break, The Sopranos, Californication, The Wire, Frasier, Oz, The Newsroom, Carnivale, Lost, Rome, Six Feet Under, Sons of Anarchy, Dexter, and Friends. Which ones did you think did the best job of bringing everything full circle?
