I really liked the way they wrapped this show up...I'll go on record saying this might be the best show on TV, even if the ending wrapped up a "bit nicely" as some reviewers are putting it.
But...I enjoyed this take of the finale:
I think there's a lot of unspoken consequences to Walt's path of destruction. Even if the show wrapped up a lot of plot points, you know things aren't golden for a lot of people.
My only gripe is shows like Breaking Bad really make shows like Dexter and The Walking Dead look like dogshit. The writing AND use of cinematography in Breaking Bad is out-fucking-standing, and should raise the bar for all TV.
I plan to do a series rewatch at some point...but yeah. Just great, great stuff, and I got a little choked up and I'm sad to see the show go. Bryan Cranston is just one of my favorite people ever. Malcolm in the Middle will go down as one of the most criminally underrated TV shows ever, and his role as Walter White has been nothing short of spectacular.
