Which TV Show Actually Had A Perfect Ending?

I see you, Mad Men.

Nothing is worse than devoting years of your life to a TV show, only to have it end in an anticlimactic or infuriating way.

But some TV shows end things PERFECTLY, and they sort of make you sit down in awe.

NBC

Like in Parenthood, when the Braverman clan fulfilled Zeke's dying wish by spreading his ashes over the baseball field and playing a game, all while showing flash-forwards of their new lives. Excuse me while I wipe away the tears from my eyes.

Maybe you watched all six seasons of How to Get Away with Murder, and your jaw dropped at how seamlessly the finale called back the pilot episode.

The last five minutes of the series were fantastic. They successfully filled in all the missing pieces, gave us a great love story (and ended a few), and made the viewer feel super nostalgic, all without being too hokey.

Perhaps you didn't think you could love Fleabag more...until you watched the finale, and everything fell into place for you.

The tearful goodbye! The fox! The statue! The "I'll be okay, but you can't follow me anymore, so you'll just have to trust me" look Fleabag gives to the camera! The perfection!!!!!!

Or maybe you loved the open-endedness of the Mad Men finale, and you even did some extra research to see if your interpretation matched everyone else's.

I've watched this scene soooooo many times, and there was so much room for error, but they ended the series with the perfect advert. In my mind, Don's final "ommm" sounds like "home." Then we hear a ding in the background, as if he's had an idea, and the lyrics "I'd like to buy the world a home" play as Don smiles, cutting to the iconic Coca Cola commercial. Brilliant.

Some shows just get it right, so use the comments below to tell us which TV shows absolutely nailed their endings. Make sure you also tell us ~why~ they were so perfect!
