THE WORST SEASON FINALE (THIS WEEK)
SPOILER ALERT! The last ten minutes of the Breaking Bad season finale were… you guessed it, the worst. So terrible, in fact, it ruined the whole episode for me. I’ve kind of felt like this whole season had been going off the rails, which is relative for a show that requires quite a bit of disbelief to be suspended in general. But Walt has been annoyingly inconsistent, Skyler has been extra irritating and then they went and made one of my favorite new characters, Mike, disappear without any updates for two eps (as Videogum pointed out last week). Anyway, back to the finale of the finale, (actual spoiler alert!) the make-up on Gus’s half-blown-off face was like some Tales From the Crypt shit. Total camp, completely random and the most idiotic send-off for one of the most quietly badass characters ever. And then they follow it up with Walt acting like a Bruce Willis cowboy showboat telling Skyler “I won” on the phone. With the DEA in the next room! Come on guys! Step it up.
