Mr. White and Detective Mackey: Two Anti-Heroes, Two Finales

PhotoGrid_1385407975388

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.
