Now that Breaking Bad has ended and the dust has settled on the wave of articles, criticisms and adulation toward it, I feel compelled to write some thoughts. And it’s just in time for tomorrow’s final season and complete series blu-ray releases.
If you heard The Obsessive Viewer Podcast’s analysis of the finale, you would know that I had some slightly dissenting opinions about the end of Walter White and Heisenberg. Particularly, my opinion was rooted in his role as an anti-hero.
I wrote this while I was still comprehending the events of Breaking Bad’s final run of episodes. In the aftermath of Felina, I saw countless comparisons of the show to The Wire, which I firmly believe is in a class by itself in the television pantheon. What I saw surprisingly few of were comparison’s between Breaking Bad and The Shield. Below I recount how each series and each anti-hero’s final bow. Enjoy and don’t forget to follow me around the internet with the links below.

This is the time of year when I get bogged down with all the series I follow. Some shows fall by the wayside while others get picked up if word of mouth or marketing is strong enough. Obviously I can’t devote a post every week (like with Bates Motel or Under the Dome) to every show I watch. So here’s a new weekly series I’m going to try my best to work on as the fall TV season unfolds.
I’m already off to a semi-bad start considering this was meant to go up Sunday. But I’ll try my best in the future to post these when I intend them to be posted.

Recently it was announced that Jimmy Smits and Donal Logue will be returning to FX’s juggernaut Sons of Anarchy Entering its 6th season this fall, the highest rated show in FX history has an incredibly loyal fan base filled with people who believe it is quality television.
Bringing back Smits and Logue is truly great for the show. Their work last season was a much needed breath of fresh air for a series that’s been stumbling for at least the last year and a half. However, while I loved Smits and Logue, I’m not sure their return will bring me back for another season of sloppy, convoluted writing on a show bloated with unresolved threads and a plethora of unlikable characters.
Thanks to The Walking Dead and American Horror Story, the horror genre is in the midst of its biggest television presence since Tales from the Crypt camped up the airwaves of the 1990s. Now A&E is trying to get in on the ground floor by taking a beloved character of the genre and enlisting network hit makers to create a modern day prequel series.
