    I love the show, but I am glad it will be ending. This isn't the type of show that should drag on forever. At some point, Walt and Jesse are going to retire, get caught, or die. I'm curious to see how things will eventually wrap up.

    I am in favor of a wrap up plan also, nothing worse than a show eventually going down hill and getting canceled. Breaking Bad is a looong way from that but a planned end gives the writers something to shoot for and plan out slowly.

    I am a Big Fan so happy it is staying an AMC with 16 episodes!

    This is very good news, I think. I love this show; probably my favorite on TV. While I'm sad that it will be ending, I'm thrilled it has a finite set end-point known well in advance and roughly consistent with Vince Gilligan's timeline. Reminds me of LOST bargaining for an end-date. That was a good thing, too.

    Looks like it's nearing time for us to fasten our tray-tables and return our seats to their full upright positions. We're coming in on the final descent. I, for one, hope it is going to be a bumpy ride.

    Just so long as Walt doesn't wake up and discover this was all a dream. AT least the show's ending before they bring in a smart aleck kid in an attempt to boost ratings.

    Nah. Walt Jr. get dragged into taking over the business, moves to Lake Tahoe, and struggles to make the family business 100% legit. :D

    Not surprising it's ending. After all, how long can a story about a guy with terminal lung cancer be stretched out.

    I'm glad they have a plan. Six seasons is a good run. It's nice when a show can end on their own terms.

    This reminds me of the way Six Feet Under was ended. They made the decision to end while the show was still popular. To this day, it's the greatest ending a series has ever had.
