(Spoiler warning: Don’t read this if you haven’t seen the “Breaking Bad” finale.)
Can a finale be too perfect?
It’s a fair question, when things work out relatively well for a meth-cooking multiple murderer. The “Breaking Bad” finale, “Felina,” found Walter White carrying out a brilliant scheme to save his family and his legacy, while killing everyone who threatened them. Your humble correspondent, in a review posted half an hour after the finale, deemed it “just perfect” and the best finale I’ve ever seen. I thought it worked as a crackerjack revenge tale, without letting Walt off too easily.
