Can we talk TV for a minute? I have to get this off my chest.
We finished Breaking Bad last week. I have heard so much about it over the past few years so I just knew we were going to love it. We kind of hated it. Well, we hated the first 3 seasons. It took us 3 months to get through them. I finally got really into it in the last episode of the 4th season. Like, really into it. Like, WE HAVE TO WATCH ALL THE EPISODES RIGHT NOW into it. And then when we finally made it to the very last episode? That everyone said was perfect? That everyone said they cried over?
It was stupid. And I hated it. And I wish I’d never even started the show.
Ugh. It was like LOST Part 2 for me. Super frustrating ending where nothing was really wrapped up.
I’ve given up on TV. Except I’m currently marathoning The White Queen (again) because I’ve been sucked into The Cousins’ War book series by Phillippa Gregory (again).
