    I know it’s not a hot take and has been said before but I’m finally starting to come around on this show being better than breaking bad. Maybe. Ehh. Probably not. But the fact that it’s even a discussion is a testament to how amazing it is.

    Ultimately I think the character building on BCS is superior and may have more lasting appeal than the more exciting “holy fuck” moments of breaking bad.

    Anyway the last couple episodes have been outstanding. Season finale next week.

    Kim Wexler is the best dramatic female tv character since Peggy Olsen

    *disclaimer there are 8,000 shows I haven’t seen in that time period

    Next season is supposed to be the final one. We'll see if they split it up into two parts like the final season of Breaking Bad, essentially making it two more seasons but having them be a little shorter.

    They only did that for BB because of the writer’s strike. BCS is better than Breaking Bad.

    The writers strike shortened the first season of Breaking Bad, not the final season. Breaking Bad, Sopranos and Mad Men were all shows that split up their final seasons into two years. Off hand I don't really know what the benefit of it is, or why they don't just label it as 2 separate seasons.

    the breaking bad split was because vince gilligan wanted to end it after the fifth season, and AMC wanted to cut costs and bring the season down to about half the number of episodes as a normal 13 episode season, which the producers refused. the final season was shopped to other networks, likely as leverage against AMC, and it was eventually agreed that a final 16 episode season would happen, but would be broken in half. the producers got a 'full' season and AMC was able to do an 8 episode season each year, which probably helped spread the production costs out over two years instead of just one. calling it the final season despite the split might've just been a creative thing from the producers who wanted the whole of it to be seen as the conclusion of the story, since they originally only wanted a normal run season of 13 episodes.

    I find her hot as hell when she's in that mood. This season she has been on fire in every way (except the literal way, naturally).

    Great season, but have to ding the finale for making everybody stupid to service the plot. Boo this. For a finale that blowed. Sorry if that's not the thread's opinion. Now we got to wait a year and a half? This is like something you run with if there are three seasons left. I'm just disappointed I guess.

    Who was stupid?

    Other than the hit team performing poorly I’m not sure what you mean. That was my only gripe.

    I think Nacho is going to be sacrificed next season so that Kim isn’t. They can’t give them both happy endings and throughout the entirety of the two series I can only think of maybe Jesse who deserves a happy ending more than Kim. Maybe.

    Because the plot needed him to survive.

    Three episodes into the final season, the ending to #3 is absolutely jaw dropping.

    Very excited that as soon as WD part 80 ended Saul season 6 was there waiting for me. I watch these shows through Prime with the AMC+ app since I don't have cable. It's not a bad deal because I just cancel it when I'm done as I don't really care for anything else on that channel.

    That series finale was magnificent.

    Kudos to the cast and crew for taking the “Breaking Bad” banner and building beautifully onto that world. Amazing.

    Just finished up the finale 2 nights ago. I was super late to the Breaking Bad party I think I watched all of it on Netflix back in late 2019. Loved it. This was just as good and of course I was late to this party as well. Just like Dexter. I didn't see any of that show until around 2018-2019, great show.

    I'll spoiler this because IDK how people will take it but

    Just caught up. Such a great show. I think I like it more than BB.

    Loved all the cameos and they all worked.

    I saw today Rhea Seahorn is 50! I thought she was 35ish, crazy
