Maybe it's just my age, but I do not and have never understood the love for The Mary Tyler Moore show. Canned laughter and manufactured punchlines.

I dont get how folks call "Breaking Bad" the best ending, though I dont know why they call it the best show ever either. I felt like from the minute Walter was diagnosed we knew how it would end. It was just a matter of how we got there

Agreed to an extent. I also never liked Walter. I think I liked everyone else but him on the show. I was mostly happy for Jesse in the end.

The Newhart finale was so awesome! Did you know it was Bob Newhart's wife who came up with the idea?

As they say.. It's often not the destination, but the journey.. And BB was one hell of a journey. But.. The ending was very satisfying. I tend to agree that we knew the basics of the ending.. It was only going one of about three ways..

A) Walt is arrested
B) Walt is killed
C) Walt dies from cancer

Or, some combination of the three above. But everything that happened in between really added to the finale. The interaction between Walt and Jesse, Walt and Mike, Walt and Gus.. That chess game of interaction between Walt and Gus was great TV.

Plus, the show ended at the perfect time. There's a litany of shows that went on too long.. A handful that didn't go on long enough. Fawlty Towers is the classic example of this. Though, it's possible it went off at the perfect time.

Felina was like a final thank you to the fans of the show.

Now flip side.. Soprano's finale.. We knew from the start of that show how it would end.. About the same three choices for Tony. But that finale has FAR less love.

Kinda Like Better call Saul, as we already know the end- its all about the Journey. Thus why I said Better call Saul as a Great ending as it is basically the beginning to Breaking Bad.
