Goddamit they are really trying to ruin this awesome show and milk it for all it is worth. At this rate they will probably have a spin-off.

What if the spin-off was Badger becoming a private eye and catching cheaters/shady business deals/other criminals then getting Saul to take them to court? Because I would watch the shiat out of that show

I could get into that.

Yeah, 'cause this was so well-received with The Walking Dead.

Man, AMC...

Oh no! More episodes of a show I like!
 
2012-04-07 04:41:07 AM
As much as this sucks,try to look on the bright side. They will write the season with a huge ending for the first half and then the bombshell for the final ending. The walking dead did this and it really wasn't all that bad.
 
2012-04-07 04:55:07 AM
Well. At least we're getting 16 more episodes of this awesome show.
 
2012-04-07 05:03:55 AM
I already hated it when cable channels had short seasons when compared to network, but this latest trend of eight episodes and going on vacation is especially grating. And I've never even seen one episode of Breaking Bad.

I know, I know, I need to fix that...

I fear that they'll add on some more seasons during the break.

Just don't pull a Dexter, go out on top.

Problem is that we live overseas per military orders, and all the online venues including Netflix like to drop the "you not MERICAN!" on us. I haven't gotten around to setting up a proxy, but with the Spanish IP, I am basically downloading and catching up on a lot of shows I've missed out on.

Breaking Bad is up next, as soon as I'm all caught up on Dexter and Homeland.
 
2012-04-07 07:12:42 AM
Skip Dexter and do Breaking Bad next. Homeland is good, but Breaking Bad is better. Dexter went downhill after the first season :(
 
2012-04-07 07:19:03 AM

OldRod: Skip Dexter and do Breaking Bad next. Homeland is good, but Breaking Bad is better. Dexter went downhill after the first season :(


I'm still kind of digging it. I have two episodes of the Julia Stiles season left right now. Although it's gotten formulaic (Dexter kills, inadvertently gets seen, thinks he made a friend, ends up turning on him, meanwhile a cop is on his trail, gets out in the end...), I still like the premise and the characters. I actually like how Dex has gotten more human as time went on, showing emotion and attachment even when he realizes he shouldn't.

I've only seen the first half of the first episode of Homeland, and I've already seen Morena Baccarin naked twice. I owe any show that does that my viewership.
 
2012-04-07 07:29:52 AM
Um, yeah. The creator of the show said this was likely months ago. What does it feel like, failmitter? Do you get up from your fail-ton and have a nice bowl of Fail Loops before figuring out a way to fail as badly as you have failed?

You can't be serious. Lithgow? Did you not watch the fourth season? If you say downhill after that, I'd agree.
 
2012-04-07 08:45:17 AM
No! They should create 100 episodes for this year alone! Surely they're creative enough and have enough plotlines to make it not suck!
 
2012-04-07 09:04:36 AM
Show had a great ending.. they should just leave it:(
 
2012-04-07 09:13:54 AM

D Ray Morton: Oh no! More episodes of a show I like!


No.

The way TFA said they're going about it is not making more episodes, it's using 8 of the final 16 as this next season, then the other 8 the following year. It's still 16 episodes, but instead of just going out in a single 16 episode long blaze of glory, they give us half now and half in another year.

As much as I've enjoyed the show, I wish they'd just do the 16 and be done with it. It's been a fun run, let's go out on a high note.

Aside from Walt becoming the new Gus, where does this show still have to go? Is there a way this show can't end with a Jessie and Walt showdown?

/Maybe the show will go in a completely different direction

FutureWars: Aside from Walt becoming the new Gus, where does this show still have to go?


There's a big pile of loose ends that Walt has left dangling behind him. Gus's connections, up through Madrigal, are not going to take kindly to this turn of events. Jesse's been played by Walt, and Walt has assumed that Jesse isn't smart enough to figure out why. The DEA is this close to catching onto Heisenberg's real identity. There's a lot of room for things to go completely insane, yet.

It could end with a Walt/Hank showdown.

I think mid-season will have the Walt/Hank showdown. The end of the series will have it come down to Jesse and Walt.

I can see it having a Mike/Jesse vs. Walt/Hank showdown.

Both those pairs seem to have an odd bond between them, and Jesse (The new Gus, IMHO) will be sending Mike after Walt, and Hank will be trying to get Walt into protection, even though Walt's pride will make he refuse.
 
2012-04-07 09:52:32 AM
I actually have this suspicion that Walt is going to be the only one who actually survives everything. Remember, he started this for his family, and then as soon as he found out he was successful, it really became all about him. Finally, he was getting the respect he deserved. As the series has progressed, it's been about him seeking to increase his power and respect, even as he risks everything else.

One ending, that I think would be perfectly satisfying, would be Walt gets his criminal empire, but loses his family and friends in the process. He becomes the next Gus. And then the cancer comes back. We end with him rotting away from the inside without a single person left to give a shiat.
 
2012-04-07 10:08:42 AM
I think it will all be a holusionation caused by the chemo but the way it will be presented we won't know either way.

Like Walt will be shot by Hank or Jesse and he will be there laying bleeding out and he will close his eyes and he will be dying in a hospital with his family by his side. A dr. Played by Gus's character telling them there's nothing else they can do. Then we flash back to him lying on the cold cement with a bigger pool of blood around him, he closes his eyes again, it goes black and we hear him take his last breathe.

2012-04-07 10:34:59 AM
A much better ending would be Walter White having everybody around him die, then have his criminal empire, and then not regret a single farking thing. The whole point of his journey is to find his respect. It's one thing to have everything collapse around him and for him to suffer. It's quite another if he's so far gone he doesn't give a shiat at all.

Except the first half of the season was horrible except for the last five minutes of it.

Second half was decent, though.

They are doing it so they can sell "Season 5 of Breaking Bad" on DVD, followed by "Season 6 of Breaking Bad".

They haven't figured out nobody buys DVDs any more.

They are running the real risk of alienating their audience and not having anyone watch the last season.

That's a totally impossibility. Splitting the season up is silly and annoying, but that's not going to stop me, and most fans, from watching.
 
2012-04-07 01:14:16 PM
I think the Walt and Hank showdown happens early in the season. Hank figures everything out but can't bust Walt, Walt paid for Hank's recovery with drug money. The appearance of impropriety prevents an arrest and there's a constant tension between them during the season.
