Watch This Tribute to TV Shows and Characters We Lost in 2013

Parting is such sweet sorrow. This year, as in all years, we had to say good-bye to some of television's most (and least) beloved characters and shows. Some will live forever in our hearts (30 Rock, The Office); some, not so much (we had already forgotten We Are Men was a thing that existed). But no matter what, attention must be paid. We put together this moving, slo-mo tribute to TV's dearly departed. As the saying goes: 'Tis better to have watched and lost than never to have watched at all (though in some cases, never having been watched at all was the cause of death). Warning: As this features many character deaths, there are obviously spoilers galore. Be warned if you are still catching up on Boardwalk Empire, The Walking Dead, Sons of Anarchy, Orange Is the New Black, True Blood, Grey's Anatomy, Justified, The Killing, Downton Abbey, Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones, and Person of Interest.
