This is how I envisioned the end of Breaking Bad:
Aaron Paul had described the finale as "horrible" so I expected the worst. Actually, it was perfect. Horribly perfect. The exact ending it needed to be.
But you know that much, even without watching the show. I'm supposed to talk about geek stuff this month so here's the meme I posted before the finale. I submitted it to I Love Charts and it did well there. That didn't translate into traffic but the comments were great. People liked the ranking of Game of Thrones after Greek tragedies. (I don't even watch Thrones but know it's chaos.)
Originally, the last two levels were going to be "AMC's Rubicon," then Greek tragedy but I thought Rubicon was too obscure. Plus, its story wasn't what was so hopeless, as in the other choices, it was the show itself -- particularly its pacing. Like watching grass grow. In slow motion. In the desert. Okay, you get it, Rubicon was bad. Just not Oedipus bad.
Vince Gilligan's show was excellent and I'm glad it got to end well. I hope Dan Harmon's gets to do the same.
How would you rank Season 5 of Breaking Bad? Is there anything lower on the hopeless scale than Game of Thrones?
