I never realized how often directors strive to have symmetry or juxtaposition between the first and the final frames of television series. You can see this particularly well in Sons of Anarchy and Oz.
Last year, we saw Jacob T. Sweeney's compilation of first and final shots for 125 famous movies. Celia Gómez edited this video which shows the same for 19 television shows. They often fit well together, telling a whole story. Gómez's selections are:
American Horror Story
Six Feet Under
Sons of Anarchy
