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.
Unlike my friends Jeff Drake and Wendy Molyneux, I haven’t attempted to binge watch every episode prior to tonight’s series finale. Nor have I felt like the’ last person in America’ who hasn’t watched Walter White and Jesse Pinkman’s meth odyssey in the desert.
(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.”
