    "The perfect ending to a perfect series. It's so hard to say goodbye to this show. I immediately got hooked from the pilot episode to all its successive seasons and my dedication to the series has never once wavered. Now it has come to an end. What an explosive conclusion to Breaking Bad! It had moved me more than any other TV shows I've seen. The most satisfying kind of sadness I've experienced. "

    "Exactly like taking crystal meth: you feel an overwhelming sense of bliss while getting increasingly paranoid. This show is my addiction, and the episode Ozymandias is its peak. I literally held my breath for an hour and was experiencing heart palpitations. It broke and exhausted me and I loved every second of it. The single greatest Breaking Bad episode ever - yes, it's even better than the series finale. "

To'hajiilee is one of the best Breaking Bad episodes to date, an amalgam of amazing execution, acting, cinematography, everything! "

    "This episode shows the height of Heisenberg's evil. He has come to terms to the fact that everything that he does is simply for the money and nothing else matters. A credit to the show's creator Vince Gilligan for making such a complex character who's detestable but still you can't help but love. "

    "The most earth-shattering of cliffhangers that you'll have the privilege of witnessing on TV - and it happens in the episode's last 5 seconds while a character is on the toilet. I won't spoil what it is but if you've watched Breaking Bad since the beginning you'll understand that this was inevitable. My favorite Breaking Bad Season 5 episode!"

    "Actually, this episode is very hilarious! I remember the comedy actor Brian Cranston instead of the meth cook Walter White. I think the bug is actually stoned that's why Jesse and Walt is having a hard time exterminating it. LOL"
