    Some of those are a stretch. And we know the watch wasn't about wait being out of time. It was about him having to take it off before the already-filmed dinner scene.

    Fun to read, but a big stretch on most of them, probably.

    Oh god, here we go again with people finding meaning where there was NONE intended.

    Dude, they're all "massive stretches" except for #13 ("woodworking") which VG even talked about.

    The rest? Come on. :rolleyes:

    I think Mo's opinions comes from trying to find a reason she was dissatisfied by the finale. I just can't see it as one of the best TV episodes ever so I understand. It wrapped the story up nicely but that episode wasn't a batch on any of the first 6 this season.

    Aaron Paul was hosting a big finale viewing party and then there was a Q&A with the cast afterward. Jimmy Kimmel was hosting the Q&A portion. I'm not sure why they included him on Talking Bad other than that he was a celebrity and he was already there for the other event and all the other episodes of Talking Bad had included unrelated celebrities, so I guess they wanted to continue that trend. I liked that he mostly kept quiet and let the cast and Vince talk.

    Awesome finale. I deleted the episode and brought it back several times to rewatch the last 10 minutes again and again. I was rooting for Walt so I loved that ending. Seeing him content, almost happy, in his element with the cooking gear around him. I thought that was a great way for him to go out.

    I think Mad Men can be added to that list.

    Excellent TV.

    I certainly think so. Yes it's had its ups and downs, but overall 'Mad Men' has been really great.

    Looking forward to a re-watch on my big screen at home, probably on Thursday night. Streamed it on UK Netflix (the ONLY way to watch it here in the UK) on a 12" Ultrabook, so at least we got to see it last night!

    ...and why polute the thread with talk of that 60's based soap opera that's Mad Men? It's not even in the same league!

    Mad Men had spectacular writing, great performances, universal themes, unbelievable sets and costumes and is as good of a character written drama as any of the others on that list - maybe even better than some.

    Mad Men is truly excellent TV.

    Something about Raylan Givens, and something about the back-woods bumble-dumps he deals with.

    I look forward to Justified more than I do Breaking Bad. I hope that doesn't ban me from this thread.

    But yeah, I think any given year there are 2-3 shows that are excellent. They all might be on HBO or Showtime and I don't get to see them, however. Heck, House of Cards on NetFlix was phenomenal (to me).
