    somewhat along those lines about a "dream", just read this interesting review:

    DevdogAZ, my feeling is that Mo and Ryan were disappointed by the finale and just struggled to find reasons, and then ended up going overboard. I found the last two more flat than the previous 6 and can't necessarily express the reasons (though it all being mechanical is one way of putting OR it just wasn't as good as 1-6).

    It actually works pretty well that way but I don't think that's what they intended since the "it was a dream" thing makes you a laughingstock (even if it's not the entire series but just the majority of one episode) and Vince Gilligan has said a ton about the finale and clarified several key points but he never pointed out that everyone missed the "it was a dream" part.

    That was one of my favorite moments of the show because it made me laugh out loud so surprisingly. There was such a sense of pride in Jesse reaction that he was the one that figured out that a big magnet would work when Mike and Walt were arguing about the laptop in the police evidence locker.

    It also might have been the last time we saw Jesse truly happy.

    Today's episode of Fresh Air is an interview with a couple of the Breaking Bad writers/producers. It's pretty interesting to hear how they worked to create the magic that is Breaking Bad.

    I think he's asking if it was really in the paper or just a photoshop job. Looks pretty good to me if it's a fake.

    AP is saying it's real, placed by a fan. It was a paid ad rather than an actual obit.

    It was a real obituary for a fake person...

    I thought it was an ad written to look like an obituary for a fake person.

    That's the thing with Breaking Bad I found - they use real URLs and real phone numbers - no fake URLs that won't work, nor 555 phone numbers.

    Did people actually try to call those phone numbers to see what would happen? I would guess it would lead to a studio-run message or something...

    They've talked about that on the podcast. Actors or crew would often answer when people called those numbers.
