Last night’s finale of Breaking Bad capped off a remarkable fourth season, which cemented Breaking Bad’s place among the pantheon of the greatest television shows in history. Many of the episodes this year could have stood alone as their own short films, with countless cinematic moments that gave me goosebumps for how carefully considered and executed they were.
My weekly ritual has been to read the recaps of Alan Sepinwall, James Poniewozik, Myles McNutt, and Matt Zoller Seitz, and I’d strongly recommend all of them this time around as well. Also, check out Sepinwall’s extensive interview with series creator Vince Gilligan, as well as the NYTimes interview with Gilligan.
We’ll be doing our own /Filmcast season review this week. Look forward to it.
