This is my final post discussing our viewing of the end of Breaking Bad. Two posts ago, I had a recap of the last eight episodes of the season, and last post I discussed some topics more or less relevant to the final season. Now I’m going to express my final thoughts on the entire series. (I’ll be short. After all, I’ve already put out series of blog posts at the end of each season. How much more can I say?)

Last post, I announced that my wife and I had just finished watching the final episodes of Breaking Bad. That previous post was a season recap that probably everyone skipped reading (not an unwise decision: either you’ve seen the show and don’t need the recap or you’ve not seen the show and SHOULDN’T read that recap)

This post will my observations on the final season. (Post 3 will be my observations on the entire series.)

That Coffee Can’t be as Good as Gale Boetticher’s. That Stuff was the Bomb, Yo.

Season finales have a tough task in general. They have to wrap things up in a satisfying way, there’s a pressure to refer back to things that have happened over the years, besides resolving plot issues, there are emotional closures that need to be crafted, and the final episodes need to be surprising. It’s no fun if it’s too obvious or predictable what’s going to happen. But things can’t be too surprising. Things should make sense.

I’m going to be talking about Season Five of AMC’s excellent crime drama, Breaking Bad. Specifically, the first 8 episodes which left Breaking Bad fans desperate for the final 8. Since everyone had to wait during the Breaking Bad hiatus, I decided to blog my impressions on the half-season before continuing my watch of the show.

As always, if you’ve not seen Breaking Bad, this post will be spoilery, yo.

Usually I breakdown a Breaking Bad season in more than one post, doing a recap in one post and observations in another. Since I only have a half-season to talk about, I’ll provide both a recap and observations in this post. If you’re not interested in my recap but mysteriously are interested in my thoughts, feel free to skip down. You animal.

No half measures on this show.

This post is talking about Season Three of AMC’s excellent Breaking Bad. Therefore, there will be spoilers for the first three seasons. This is my first time watching, so if you comment, please no Season Four or Five spoilage.

My lovely wife and I continue our Breaking Bad watch. By the time we get into the first half of Season Five, I am hoping that the second half of the season will also be available on Netflix. Otherwise I’ll be feeling as jittery as Wendy with ricin-burgers and no bump.
