Barely broken

Breaking Bad ends its incredible run tonight. At least, that’s what I hear.

I mean, I know it’s ending. I inferred the ‘incredible’ part. ‘Cause I never watched it.

(I knew Jeff and Wendy were out there.)

I actually felt kinda proud that I had held out all this time…although I had never planned not to watch the show.

But now I have Netflix.  Now I can.

So yesterday I watched Season 1 and began Season 2.  I am on an airplane headed westward as I type this, so all will be resolved by the time I land.  But if I hope to finish the series on my terms and not have the ending ruined, I will simply have to follow sage advice given to Ben Affleck after he was recently cast as the new Batman:

Stay off Twitter for a couple of days.”

  1. I thought I was the only one who hadn’t watched it! I did watch season 1 yesterday (short season!) and am a few episodes into season 2. I love it! It is totally living up to the hype for me. One note: it’s on AMC, not Showtime.
