As good as Ozymandias was, I felt last night's episode(Granite State) was just as good, if not better, than it. How the show incorporated the longer version of the main theme at the end was simply perfect.

This show could easily be something revolutionary; it may go down in history as being one of the only shows to go longer than 2 seasons and never have any lulls or major declines in quality. Kudos to the cast and crew.

I was on my feet for that! That had to be one of the best endings of an episode I've seen from the show... got me geared up for the last episode... The music was perfect... and to my recollection that was the first (and probably last) time they used the main title theme. Wasn't it

Indeed. Aaron Paul deserves an emmy, especially for these last few episodes.

Anyway until next week I'll be humming this in my head...

You better watch out

I'm telling you why

That was great! Almost a little rundown of the entire show coinciding with Jesse's pain...

Tomorrow... It. All. Ends.

Spoiler Alert

I know the ending! Do not read is you don't want the know the end!


Or are easily offended....





The penultimate scene is a huge gun battle between Walter and the neo0Nazis and he is penned down! The camera fades to black


After a few short scene we see a Northwestern Logging camp and an aged but alive Walter walking to a little cabin. In it is Dexter who says "Walter you meet the code, but I can't quit you..."

New for next season on the LGBT network "Feltch" is --

Breaking Brokeback Dexter - a love story sort of....

From SNL, it is long but WORTH it to the end, esp before you see the last Breaking Bad

Figured you would post that.

The ending was pretty much as perfect as it could get. Can't wait for Better Call Saul!

Yeah... I was satisfied... But it seems a few strange fans are griping about it.

Me too, I think one of the writers (Peter Gould, who created the character actually) is going to be the show-runner.

anyway...

The only real complaint I've read over and over was that it was predictable...which it was. I think since everybody was so used to being surprised by the unexpected twists and turns this show took over and over again a lot of people were expecting to be shocked or to have something out of the blue(hahaha get it? blue meth eh) to happen. Instead, we got what we were anticipating. Even Walt's use of the ricin and the machine gun were pretty much what we were expecting.

I personally don't mind predictability as long as its well executed, which this most definitely was. I also liked that aside from Walt, they left the fate of the other characters pretty ambiguous.

Which is what made it BRILLIANT in my opinion... it shocked me by not being "surprising" but by being SATISFYING.
I think that's just great. I miss it already.

Now I have nothing to look forward to Sundays.

I have to agree with the above. It was clean, crisp, and well done. Great economy of time and no wasted shots (unlike this run on sentence).

I was also glad for the last scene of Skinny Pete! Awesome.

Am I the only here who likes American Horror Story? This years looks very cool!

So the complete show has been on Netflix for roughly a year and a half now, has anyone else around here embarked on the adventures of Walter H. White?

...or even better, has anyone given Better Call Saul a chance?

I watched the first two episodes of Better Call Saul on AMC and absolutely loved them.

Tense, funny and very well written, with great emphasis on character development, as we've come to expect from Vince Gilligan.

Looks like the beginning of anther great series, one I'll be sure to follow.

Haven't seen Better Call Saul yet, although I want to. Maybe when it's on Netflix.

I did embark on watching the whole BB series on Netflix about 3-5 months ago, (hadn't seen it before) and loved it. Well written, excellent attention to detail, and as many critics have said, probably one of the best drama shows of all time. Very well done.

I caught Breaking Bad a couple of times when it was airing and it really intrigued me, but you can't just bungy into a series like that more than halfway through. It wasn't until recently I gave the series a try.. and became hooked on 'The Blue'. Plus, thanks to Netflix, I didn't have to wait on the cliff for months on end.

Direction was great; use of colors, foreshadowing, placement, etc. Acting was great (like Bryan Cranston's impromptu crying during Jane's death), and of course the writting, kept you wanting to know what happens next.

I did find myself frustrated by Walt and Skylers' dysfunctional marriage, although that was deliberate. I thought Skyler was irritatingly closed off, but Walt also became delusionally selfish. Also, interesting how Walt never uses his own product, but nonetheless becomes addicted and 'The Blue' becomes his world. Sort of a mid-life-crisis story, too.

Did anyone else enjoy how atmospheric it was as well as how the ghostly urban legend of Heisenberg permeates the area? The last couple of episodes, especially; we see the old Whites' house as a sort of... urban shrine (?)

As far as the series' ending goes, I'm surprised you guys haven't mentioned the open-ending that Walt's story could take:
