The End of Breaking Bad. Wow. I think I’m still in denial, honestly, but what I’m not denying is this: this was the most incredible finale season I’ve ever seen, and I am 100% satisfied with how things went for the final episode.
We had a lot to say about this episode, without talking about the actual episode. Is that weird? It’s just all our thoughts and feelings about this season, and where it’s going, and whether we feel good about it or not. It’s a weird “instant cast” for a weird, slower paced, brutal penultimate episode. I think my last hopes for even a modicum of happy ending died tonight. Can’t wait to see what everybody else thought!
You all saw the episode. You know we have much to talk about. Let’s get it on then! Jesse! Hank! Walt Jr! Holly! Todd! We hit all the high points, but join us for our COMPLETE coverage on Tuesday night!
While quite a few people got some of the broad strokes right, again, Vince Gilligan and crew made sure that we were all left guessing and trying to puzzle out where we were going until The End… and what an end it was. Jim and A.Ron struggle to put their thoughts into words as we deliver a instant take where we try to make sense of how we got here, what we thought of it, and where we’re left. Join us for our full coverage Tuesday night!
A.Ron and I rushed off to the mics again to talk about episode 512, “Rabid Dog”. We ask the hard questions such as: Has Skyler broken bad? Has Hank broken bad? Is there any freakin’ one on this show who HASN’T broken bad? Also, what would Huel do with Walt’s money?
Did we just watch one of the best hours of television, or The Best Ever? Jim and A.Ron debate that point as they struggle to process the absolutely incredible hour of television that was Breaking Bad episode 511, “Confessions”. All the pieces were there the whole time, hidden in plain sight. But no one saw Walt’s “confession” and the impact it would have. No one forsaw the consequences of a single boosted bag of weed. And what else is lurking out there, in two flash forwards and an enigmatic scene between Meth Damon and his Uncles of Anarchy? I sure as hell don’t know, but can’t wait to find out!
Tune in to our Instant Take podcast as Jim and I hit the mics hard and fast and dish out what we thought about tonight’s episode. Hope you guys enjoy, and don’t forget that we’ll be posting our Instant Take written reviews tonight as well. You should have plenty of Breaking Bad content to pour over!
This episode was nothing like what I expected and everything I was secretly hoping for. And because of 229 generous souls who backed our Kickstarter project, we’ll be doing one of these bonus “Instant Take” podcasts after EVERY episode!
Tune in to find out Jim and A.Ron’s reactions, reviews, and off the cuff predictions and analysis. And be sure to check back Tuesday evening for our full, in-depth coverage of Breaking Bad. If tonight is any indication, we’re in for a wild ride.
Holy shit! No time for witty text, here’s Jim and A.Ron’s Instant Review of “Face Off” in podcast form! It’s less than 15 minutes long, and sort of unusually low-key. We were trying to be quiet since my five year old was asleep in the next room over. 😀
Well, here is our little experimental insta-cast! It’s 15 minutes of raw, un-rehearsed reaction. It doesn’t have a full recap, or in-depth analysis, we ask more questions than anything else. Let us know what you think. If you like it, and we can fit it into our schedules, we’ll try it again.
