I'd say he tried breaking good. He became more compassionate for people, he felt more and more guilt for wrong doings, and tried to make up for bad doings.

Sorry, but there are people that move on with their life even after witnessing something as horrific as a child being murdered in front of them as a result of their actions. If they have a ton of money and power, still have some kind of family, etc. then they don't care as much. Once they lose all that, they realize how horrible some of the things were that led up to that point.

moving on is one thing, moving on without realising that you were/are responsible is another thing altogether.

ive never heard of someone capable of overlooking their own heinous crimes in the past, then coming to this conclusion later.

im not saying the ending made no sense, and everybody should feel the same way i do, just that i found it hard to believe.

anyways, its clear that we arent going to agree on this, and im not gonna get hung up on the one small thing that i didnt like

Huh? There's countless real-life examples of that of just people in jail.

Yes, agree to disagree. I'm not sure if we are just talking about two different things or you've been living under a rock.

Really? Happens all the time. People do horrible crimes and they feel justified in doing them. It isn't until later after spending time in prison or seeing how is messed up their own families that they apologize and appear sorrowful.

Here's a quote from Britney Spears in regards to the BB finale:

"I didn't think he (Walt) should have died.......maybe they'll do another episode where the ambulance comes and revives him."

Wow

I'd say that Walt is smart, not rational. A rational person doesn't cook meth when they are diagnosed with cancer.

He was losing his mind in season 5. Remember his response to Mike when asked why he thinks the magnet thing has worked. Also, the whole "Say my name" scene and killing Mike because of his ego, realizing only later that it wasn't necessary. I think they've tried to portrait Walt as increasingly losing touch to reality in S5.

That too. I was going to rebuttle the "its lunatics" part by pointing out that he is a lunatic himself, but decided to rebuttle the rational part instead.

Started on episode 1 the day after the last episode dropped to see if it was worth the hype. I have three episodes left to go, to answer how I'm liking it. It sucks I knew the ending the entire time, but I just wanted to see how they all got there. Even with that, each episode has kept me at the edge of my seat. Fantastic, fantastic show.


oh, and Lydia would get da pipe.
