Agree. Those two are my two "shows" and I can't tell you how disappointed I was with Dexter. Not just the finale, I thought as a whole that was one of the better episodes of the season....but the last season as a whole was awful, made no sense, and felt like just another season. I think that was a show that stayed around 2 years too long.... and watching that and Breaking Bad back to back every Sunday probably didn't help my impression of Dexter with how awesome Breaking Bad has been.

Looking back, I think only the first, third and fourth seasons of Dexter were quality. The new sargeant, Masuka's daughter, etc... absolute filler that went nowhere. I basically wasted four seasons to get to the silly storm/ LL Bean outfit. It would have been better if a Sharknado hit Miami.

This is how I felt about the last few seasons of Dexter:

Re: Breaking Bad Season 5

yeah, that was super super lame... and predictable. I also wondered why they introduced the daughter. she played absolutely no part in anything important beyond filling 5 minutes of dead space.

Agreed. I bet a few people will be pissed that there weren't a bunch of last minute twists or crazy WTF moments, but there was just such a sense of closure.

I'm going to be thinking about this for awhile longer.

Yeah maybe, at some point you have to let the small things slide. Like him parking the car right where he did, leaving the keys on the pool table, etc.

I just loved how it wrapped everything up and gave true closure.

I understand that type of disbelief but I am constantly reminding myself that 99.9999% of the world's criminals aren't detail oriented geniuses. They make "mistakes" like that all the time.

Who would have thought there would be a remote operated m60 in the trunk?

Even though I knew he had the M60 and he was testing the contraption earlier in the show... I still didn't expect that. I was thinking he had a bomb or something and was just gonna blow them all away.


Either way, if anyone is complaining about the ending, I think they're just looking for something to complain about. I thought it was perfect, tied the whole series together really nicely. There were a few more "unrealistic" things in that episode than is typical of Breaking Bad, but they had to find a way to close it all up and they did that just perfectly.

Can't say enough about that last season though. The series as a whole was amazing, but that season 5 was just on another level.

Re: Breaking Bad Season 5

The rare show that started good, got stronger as the seasons went on, and finally went out before it faded. Hard to do nowadays when dragging a show out 2-3 more seasons can make so much money. That's the most impressive thing to me. They bailed at 5 before it even got a hint of stink to it.

Exactly. There have been so many shows (basically all the ones I've ever been a huge fan of) that just get so bad and overplayed.
