A brilliant side-by-side comparison of first & last scenes of classic TV shows

We've all been there. That sickening, empty feeling when you finally reach the end of an epic journey through a classic TV show and realise that your life is now empty and worthless. "Why won't they make more some more episodes?" you scream to an unlistening telly god. "Just one more, I'll do anything!" you cry.

But, when the pain has subsided, you're left to dwell upon just how far the characters have come over the course of the story, and what an experience the whole thing has been.

This excellent new video, created by Celia Gómez, puts the first and last scenes of classic shows side-by-side to enable a direct comparison between those fresh-faced newbies you saw in episode one and the older, (sometimes) wiser characters they finish as.

Naturally, there are SPOILERS here, so check the program list below for any you're planning to see and make sure you cover your eyes during those bits.

Twin Peaks
American Horror Story
Breaking Bad
Prison Break
The Sopranos
