Breaking Bad: The Final Season

Sharon and I watched the finale of the final season of Breaking Bad. We finished Season 1 in September of 2014, Season 2 in February of 2015, Season 3 in May of 2015., Season 4 in December of 2015 and Season 5 in January of 2016.

The final season of Breaking Bad premiered on August 11, 2013 and concluded on September 29, 2013. Then final season includes only eight episodes.

In 2014, the final season was nominated for sixteen Emmys. It won six Emmys, including: Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series; Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series; Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series; Outstanding Writing for a Drama Series; Outstanding Drama Series; and, Outstanding Single-Camera Picture Editing for a Drama Series.

Sharon was not particularly satisfied with the finale. While I have often heard Breaking Bad talked about as the best television series ever, I am a little put off by the gratuitous use of murder. The best example of this is the murder of Andrea in the next to last episode of the series. As I said at the end of season two, the show is not very life affirming...
