Breaking Bad is Over and I Want a New Drug

Breaking Bad Felina

Don’t worry, no spoilers here.

The body is still warm and I’m already moving on. Five incredible seasons of Breaking Bad ended tonight leaving me with a nasty case of the shakes, and I haven’t even come down off my high yet for crying out loud.

Breaking Bad, Jesse Pinkman

The problem with a really good television show is that it can suck a person into a hardcore habit. I rarely watch TV because I just don’t have the drive to commit to a program. But when a show like Breaking Bad comes along, I get hooked. Then, I fear the end of the series because I know I’ll miss the exhilarating rush that comes with looking forward to and enjoying each new episode. Hell, I don’t know what I’m going to do tomorrow, but if Breaking Bad were still on, I could tell you what I would be doing next Sunday evening.

I’m not going to get into the show, its history, its virtues, its brilliance in writing and acting, or its impact on television. You can shop that plenty of other places. I’m just giving you a moment to go through withdrawals with me and to wonder how and when we’ll get our next fix. Shit, maybe we all need help.

Nah. Take it away, Amy Winehouse!

    It was a crazy, huh? The whole thing. There were some great things and some not so great things. Amazing run. Walt and Jesse…. whew.

      In all, some of the best television I’ve ever watched. Obviously, a lot of people thought so. There were so many directions to go with the show, but I appreciate that the writers stuck to their guns to round out the show the way they originally intended. That’s a remarkable feat and should be a gold standard for future programs. Since all shows have to be commercial successes, I hope that the success of Breaking Bad proves that good storytelling can also mean good money. There are millions of people now that are looking for a replacement because they didn’t get turned off by a show that ran past its peak or meandered aimlessly until viewership fell below acceptable levels and consumers like me turned to other entertainment sources.

    […] very grateful to the CW for allowing the series to have an ending. Brilliant finales are rare (Breaking Bad was one of the few that I think nailed it), but I actually felt like this one worked out as it […]
