Breaking Bad Death Dream...

...waaah?  A theory the end of Breaking Bad was a Walter White death dream.  Ahh...no.  Not even close.  Taxi Driver makes a whole lot more sense as a death dream ending and even that is debatable.  There is no indication or suggestion Breaking Bad was meant this way.  I suppose it means Walter had a death dream about Jesse having a dream.  It's just hard to end TV shows because TV shows are not designed to end.

On Bill Simmon's podcast the other week, Cousin Sal makes a funny point about the Sopranos finale, which is now the standard bearer for "artistic" endings.  He says "how can an ending be considered successful, when 70% of their audience thought their TV power went out?"  He makes a fair point.
