I agree with all that. this is what happens when a great premise is just not fully realized. usually for me, a story should have a defined end well before it gets to that point. it was bumbled here clearly.

I can say the first 3 seasons of the show were as good as pretty much anything I have seen. not The Wire level for me, that may be my gold standard. I also enjoy Sopranos but not nearly as much as some. anyhow when Walt becomes the caricature of a kingpin, they could have gone a few different ways. make it known that he knew it was all a show. as a viewer I would have dug that, if all he was saying and doing was for show at that point.

I had almost forgotten how poorly things wrapped up. this thread has just refreshed those last few episodes. sigh
