Totally agree. The show seemed to be trying to develop her as more than a way further plot for a while but those days look to be over. I am also dropping the show after watching this week's episode cause I realised I don't really care what happens to anyone on this show. I think I'll just read the plot summaries and go back and finish the Fosters. I am starting to agree with that AV club article stating the case against the show more and more.

Really, you're checking out with 3 episodes left to go? That's haterish, even by my standards. I still like the show a lot but think people are getting a little too wrapped up in the fervor of it coming to an end and not really seeing its flaws. I'm not really getting the same sense of a masterpiece show coming to its climax when I watch these final episodes as I did in the final season of say Sopranos or Six Feet Under. It's more just a lot of loud shock and bombast. BB has always been about over the top hijinks and pushing the envelope, but they're going so far with all the cliffhanger endings and the suspension of disbelief requirements to buy some of these characters' actions that all the hyperbole and praise heaped on every new episode from fans and TV bloggers is starting to make me roll my eyes a little even tho I'm actually really enjoying it myself. Probably just my old ass failing to adjust to the new social media era we live in.

Dude, have you watched "Talking Bad"? Please do, it's amazing. It will guaranteed make you hate Breaking Bad.

I was thinking of not watching the final half season but decided to give it a chance and that chance lasted 5 episodes. I don't hate it, I just have lost all interest and when I lose interest in something it doesn't matter how far I am into it I leave and move on to something else. I will still read how it ends but instead -rewatch the first 3 episodes of the Shield or 6 feet under instead.

The buildup to this moment took way too long. This show has a lot of the trappings of a good show but it aimlessly drags its feet way too much. A better show like Boardwalk Empire accomplished the same feats with better impact in less than half the amount of time. I really wish someone would edit this show down by removing most of the needlessly long suspense bits and getting rid of all the superfluous dialog so it was just intense shit all the time instead of being a boring snoozefest.

It's kinda crazy seeing the juxtaposition between a show like Game of Thrones that almost every episode without fail gives you a WTFcrazypants moment at the end and this show that blue balls you every episode, wraps up the cliffhanger at the start and then just kinda drags for the rest of the ep. Both seem to fuel the type of watercooler fervor that good serial television should, but I find Breaking Bad way less satisfying to watch weekly. This is kind of the first time I've done so on a regular basis because I don't want to miss the zeitgeist. I don't think BB needs editing tho. It's kind of masterfully paced and is ending after only 5 seasons (a lot of these wanky serials go 7-8 and suffer for it) so it's apparent they haven't really wasted a lot of our time on filler.

How much longer is Boardwalk going to run? I'm going to burn thru that whole series when it comes up on its last season.

I have no idea. I keep thinking its going to get cancelled any moment by now because it's a super expensive show to make and nobody talks about it ever. But it's still chuggin' into a 4th season.

I think Todd is a better villain than Gus. He's like the Anton Chigurh of this universe.

Penultimate ep was pretty good. To bad they smoked that hot peace of latina ass but at least the hilarious child is still around to be hilarious. I like the idea of Walt getting that machine gun and ricin to kill his old grey matter friends instead of the neo nazis. It'd be a pretty funny ending.

Really liked the last episode as well.

Television shows don't always need a shocking twist nobody saw coming for an ending to be considered good. It was pretty safe and predictable, but so what. At least it didn't try anything stupid as hell. It's the show as a whole that will be remembered for being great.

It's not very often I get to say that I feel satisfied by the ending, but I feel satisfied *enough* by this one.

What did the neurotic lady do to deserve being poisoned like that? She was annoying and self serving but I can't think of anything she did wrong by Walt as much as the Nazis did.

It probably has to do with Skyler confronting her at the car wash. She knows Skyler is his wife, I'm assuming. She knew too much to be left alive. I don't think he was gonna chance her still being around after he was dead.
