Well, we're done. Breaking Bad is over. Five seasons of fiction that exceeded the sum total of its parts. The cultural excitement and hand-wringing over its ending was something to behold. I am a fan, so no complaints from me, and I think they handled the end really well--kudos to all involved say I. There was added pressure given the apparent dismay over The Sopranos ending and the more recent Dexter season finale which seemed to draw a collective groan of disappointment. I don't get that crazed, but I did appreciate the careful way that the story was wrapped up. Like many people I think it was virtually impossible to exceed the depth and emotion of the Ozymandias two weeks before, but they managed to close out the show with aplomb. There was even just the right amount of final self-awareness from Walt, and he even got death on his own terms, which may or may not please all viewers. But the show managed to take a character from good to bad to worse to eveil and still keep us interested in spite of all that. Don't want to say much more given that there are still people getting around to watching the ending, but that was television time well spent.
