Right on.
It's a good ending.

I must've watched the final scene to the penultimate episode like 50 times.

That music... when it kicks in at 1:33 mark, the look on his face. That music! wow

Did I imagine it, or was there a separate thread for favourite BB episode?

It would have been fun, albeit very hard to choose.

I thought that the last few episodes of Season 4 (particularly the season finale) were excellent.

And, of course, much of Season 5!

Still thinking about it, days after finishing season 5. :notworthy:

Elements of season four annoyed me (those being Hank's despondency and constant passive-aggressiveness with Marie, and Skyler's despondency as well (her character got a bad deal with this, or at least Anna Gunn did. Her face was always the same, just lost, sad, annoyed (her face when she jumps in the pool still annoys me for some reason). Though Walt was a dick it was so much easier to side with Team Walt just because it was so much more fun and varied).
Heck when Jessie get's all despondent in season 5 that annoyed me a bit too.
Pathos is a good and interesting thing to use in story-telling, in moderation. Too much of it doesn't make for good tv. I loved this show, but of course that doesn't mean there isn't room for things to bother you as well.


Oh well. All that said, favourite episode: without a doubt....

Dead Freight.

I fuckin' good ol' fashioned train robbery! Fuck yeah!

I think I'd say my favourite was Crawl Space from season 4, however I'd say the best episode is Ozymandias from the last season, if that makes sense. (The last season is also by far my favourite.)

Both Ozymandias and Dead Freight were excellent episodes.

Box Cutter was also very good opening season 4 and the last four episodes of Season 4:

Salud
Crawl Space
End Times

Just finished the final episode. Some thoughts (SPOILERS AHEAD!):

:megaphone: SPOILERS!

I loved the first two seasons. Perhaps the most brilliant TV I've ever come across. Then, in season three, things started going downhill, just slightly.

My first problem was The Cousins. Up until they arrived on the scene the series had been full of strange, horrifying and funny twists, but there was always a connection to reality. Tuco was a total psycho, but still somewhat believable which made him even more terrifying. Now we were introduced to crooks that seemed to be picked out of some bad action flick from the 90s, walking slowly away from exploding cars, crawling towards their enemy without legs. It changed the mood of the series.

Then in season 4 as Walter slowly began his ascent to drug kingpin and his wife got more an more involved, the less involved I felt. I'm not one of those people who feel that a main character has to be likeable, but in this case I felt that what made me watch the series in the first place - to see what happens when an ordinary family guy gets involved with the criminal underworld - was beginning to fade away and be replaced by something not quite as original.

The last few episodes were brilliant though.

Interesting points.
Guess it isn't easy for a series running for 5 seasons to keep the same quality.
The final episode

SPOILER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

was too much MacGyver for my taste.

Executive producer Peter Gould says that the show will feature scenes that move back and forth over several decades, including the era where Walter White cooked and sold crystal meth.

“One of the great things about having a time line which is flexible is that perhaps some of it takes place before ‘Breaking Bad,’ during ‘Breaking Bad,’ and after ‘Breaking Bad'. That gives us the ability to bring back characters that were killed on ‘Breaking Bad,’ ” he says.
