Breaking Bad – The Great American TV Show (Spoilers*)

breaking bad jesse pink man I woke up this morning worried about Jesse Pinkman.

I don’t want him to die. I don’t want Walter White to die either. I don’t want anyone else to die because they are my Sunday night family and watching your family die sucks.

But I’ll accept it if it’s good for the story.

I watched Hank get shot in the head yesterday and I was like WHAT?! Of course I knew he was going to be offed. He had to go. What’s good for the story is good for the gander but it still felt like someone had ripped my heart out, kicked it around a bit before placing it back into my body. With every scene, I was feeling like it had all gone too far. I was uncomfortable much of the episode and I yearned for the comfort and coziness of Season 1.

I’m not ready for the show to end although much like the changing of the seasons, it’s not up to me or my emotional capacity to handle the shift.

It is appropriately raining today in NYC and I’m feelin’ weird. Breaking Bad made me feel weird. I can’t stop thinking about it, trying to put it all together.

I consider it the great American novel but in series form. There is too much to analyze, too much to look for, too much to look forward to. It’s the series you watch again because there are hints and foreboding everywhere.

This isn’t just TV. This IS what TV should be. All TV. All TV should be this good because then I could scapegoat brilliant episodes on my emotional issues.

No, I don’t watch Homeland and I probably won’t. Perhaps Vinny and I will give The Wire a whirl after a sufficient emotional break from Breaking Bad.

So if you think I’m a bit nutty,  you’d be right. But everyone else is a bit nutty for Breaking Bad too so I don’t feel so bad.

Do you watch Breaking Bad or are you one of those “too cool” for school folks who doesn’t own a TV? You’re missing out.

    I did feel very emotional after watching it. You HAVE to watch The Wire. I actually just re-watched all 5 seasons and it was even better the second time and I may have been more depressed when it was all over.

      Sold! I’ll def be checking it out because I’m already starting to feel empty knowing there will be no more Breaking Bad. Or maybe I should re-watch Breaking Bad to see all that I missed while I wasn’t paying attention. Decisions, decisions. 🙂
