As almost all of you are probably aware, Breaking Bad is about to wrap up the entire series this weekend. It’s been one hell of a ride for my favorite (and for my money, the best) TV show.

Odds on Potential Events in Breaking Bad’s Final Season

There are a hundreds of reasons to love AMC’s Breaking Bad. The biggest reason I love the show is the writing. It’s efficient and thorough, never wasting a set-up from prior episodes or seasons. The sheer unpredictability of it all leaves viewers at the edge of their seats each week, trying to decipher how Walt and Jesse will work their way out of their latest jam. But now there’s only one season left, truncated and divided into two 8-episode mini-seasons. The next 16 episodes will bring us closure, beginning this Sunday.

The Culture of Breaking Bad

The premiere of the final season of Breaking Bad is less than a month away. That fact makes me very, very happy.
