Saying Goodbye to Breaking Bad, Walter White and Hopefully Twitter Hype
The relationship between Twitter and Breaking Bad has been an odd phenomenon to watch. After a while it seemed like Breaking Bad’s reception on Twitter, or maybe netwide, took on a life of its own. Whatever people wanted it to be, however they wanted it to end, seemed to have little to do with the show itself. The collective obsession could probably never have been fully satisfied, no matter how the show ended. But after all of this time, the “holy shit Breaking Bad!” tweets before the show aired here on the West Coast, the idolatry of Walter White, and now, the inevitable downfall/backlash I have to say I’m glad it’s over. That kind of stalker obsessiveness never ends well. It was best Breaking Bad made a clean break without trying to make its fans feel better by lying to them.
