Default Breaking Bad.

This deserves its own thread.

Only three episodes left and it's looking like this show might end spectacularly. The tension is so palpably high, all the narrative loose ends have been woven together expertly and we are currently barreling to a big finish.

For fans of the show, check out AMC for behind the scenes video and podcasts.

All I have to say about the ending to the last episode is this (SPOILERS obviously)

I'm going to sorely miss Breaking Bad. I really do think it's been the best drama (or dramedy) series I've ever watched. Both the acting and writing is incredible.

And yeah, I don't think I've ever been as tensed up as I was at the end of the last episode. Holy crap. I can't wait until next week to see who's still around. Intense is an understatement.

I recorded this Sunday at a watch party.

I can't imagine that I'll ever be as excited for a TV show as I have been for Breaking Bad. I had never seen the video of Bryan Cranston reading Ozymandias, and I never thought of the similarities between the show and the poem. It's pretty brilliant, and it's very well done.

I can't wait to find out what happens, but at the same time I know I'll be very disappointed when it's all over.

I'm starting to think that the inevitable conclusion to the series isn't Walt dying, but rather, Walt losing everyone and everything he cares about. He's so family motivated, that their deaths as a result of his actions would arguably be a greater consequence to this all than his own death.

Yup, the desert imagery is similar as well.

In fact, the name of the next episode is titled "Ozymandias". Rian Johnson (Fly, Looper) is directing it.

I've heard rumors of a Saul spin-off. If that happens that could get me as excited as BB to be quite honest.

You got THAT right, man! Couldn't agree more! Gonna be SO bummed to come to the realization that there won't be any more shows to watch! I just don't want it to end! Too bad fans can't vote and push them to make more seasons somehow!
