Anybody watching Breaking Bad on AMC? - Page 30

Tonight's episode, it really was one, if not the best, ending to a TV show. Beats the ending to Dexter, Lost, and a host of other shows.

Breaking Bad was definitely an excellent show. The final season (More so than just the last episode) really did the story and the characters justice. It seems that creating a satisfactory ending for a show is the most challenging part to making a great series. I was concerned that Breaking Bad would end poorly, and would rather that they just cut it rather than ruin it. But the last eight episodes exceeded all of my expectations.

 

 

If you haven't already, I would suggest you watch The Wire, The Shield, and Rome. All top notch shows with great endings.

 

I started but abandoned "The Wire," and "The Shield" way too early. (I did the same thing with "Lost," and "24" according to some of my friends...) I plan to go back and do "The Wire" in the near future...

I wish I abandoned Lost after the 2nd season instead of persevering to the end, it jumped the shark real bad.

 

The Wire and The Shield are absolute masterpieces (IMO). They are heavy going, and are best viewed with focused attention rather than as more of a background stimulus. They are in a completely different league than any of the usual prime-time ABC and Showtime type offerings.

 

The only downside is that it is very difficult to be satisfied with regular run of the mill shows after watching them. Its like hearing Stax, then going back to Beats.

Well thats what I call an epic ending. Legendary show with an awesome final episode, I'm really sad this show ended. It makes every other show that I used to think was awesome (before I started watching BB) mediocre. This show is just that well made.

I still have a question though, why is Jessie still alive ? Didn't Vince say that everyone dies (except Saul)?
I hope I didn't spoil that for you because I can't put a spoiler alert as I am on my iPad.

Well, Jesse doesn't really have much left, does he? He's a high school drop out who's been on the wrong side of the law a few times, and has blown his share of the money.

 

As for the show, well I for one am glad it wasn't cancelled prematurely like a lot of good series, mostly because of studio a**holes.

I'd say from Jesse's perspective, his survival is a greater tragedy than his death.

 

He is a good person at heart who has been involved in, and witnessed horrific events. I don't think he will be able to forgive himself for his culpable actions.

 

I would imagine he will be dead in the near future, either from suicide or unintentional lethal overdose.

For a moment I thought he was going to kill himself when he had the gun in his hand.

I choose to have more optimism with regard to Jesse. He's a survivor if there ever was one! He got himself cleaned-up before. He can do it again. Badger and Skinny Pete can even help him pay for rehab! Would the police or DEA have any evidence that would connect Jesse, to the exclusion of all others, with everything that went on. There are even DEA photographs that show him dead with "his brains" all over the floor. Couldn't he have a totally fresh start. I can see him getting cleaned-up and going on a search for Brock. He might even adopt Brock and become a great father with a dark past. Maybe he get's into an adult education program to become a Pharmacist's Assistant...he has lots of practical experience.

As long as that disc with his confession is never found, or was destroyed.

Todd and Uncle Jack had that. Maybe in was destroyed by them so that there would be no evidence that Todd had been connected with the murder of the dirtbike rider at the train robbery...

What was with the scene when Jesse was working on that box? To me, it almost felt like a flash-forward. Perhaps my interpretation is far off and it was

in relation to some past scene that I missed.

 

And didn't Jack, Todd and the boys take the evidence from Hank's home? So Jesse definitely has the opportunity for a fresh start.

 

 

 

BTW: Anyone else bummed Todd was killed? I was (dreamingly) hoping for a spin-off with him involved.

It was a flashback/daydream back to a story Jesse told when he was in rehab that rehab group which met at the community center. He had made this box in his high school shop class. He was very proud of this box because it was beautiful. I believe he got a good grade on the box, but and I'm not positive about this part, I think his parents belittled this accomplishment of which he was proud. He ended-up storing his drugs in the box...I think that the dream might have been a foreshadowing that Jesse would live, and ultimately make something good of his life.

Ah, spot on reminder.

Jesse is gone down the road. He loves Brock, but he knows that Brock is better off without him. Jesse heads out to Alaska, South America or Australia and becomes a cabinet maker. He still knows a guy that knows a guy that can get him out of the country - possibly on a fishing boat or freighter.
