Buzz In: What Are the Best TV Series Finales?


The Shield, the show that opened the door for so many of today's great basic cable TV series (Damages, Mad Men, and The Closer, to name just a few), will come to an end tonight. The Vic Mackey era closes with this 88th and final episode, "Family Meeting."

The episode is being described as "brilliant," and a few writers have already called it their favorite drama series finale ever. That's a pretty big statement, especially because several other series have set the bar so high. My favorite is still the sob-inducing finale of Six Feet Under, but this Spring's finale of The Wire is up there as well, and on a sentimental note, the bittersweet finale of Gilmore Girls will always get to me.

What about you? Which series finales are on your list of the best?
