Breaking Bad is definitely one for me. Season 5 and all the Nazi stuff definitely paled in comparison to Gus but those last three episodes are just wonderful and damn near perfect. That rising final shot of Walt is something I will never forget.
Also, a criminally underappreciated show VEEP recently ended and I thought it was a fitting send off. They hit all the right notes for their characters and that show was such a joy from beginning to end.
I absolutely love this final season. It took me until the 4th episode for me to see that they are trying something else to finish the series. Instead of waiting to the final episode to either “cut to black” or “speed through to the future and death of beloved central characters”, it looks like they are taking the entire season to say goodbye to every character we care about. They are doing this without sacrificing narrative devices and biting social commentary. Me suspects that if they weren’t told to end the show that we would probably have had another meandering season with the social commentary diluted in soap opera but thank the Lord we got this instead.
