Lambert, Rosie, Critics & More React to BREAKING BAD Finale
AMC aired its fifth and final season finale of Breaking Bad titled 'Felina' last night, Sunday, September 29th. Fans of the show quickly took to Twitter to share their reactions while TV critics posted their take on the last we'll ever see of Bryan Cranston's Walter White.
Below, check out what both celebrities and critics had to say about the series wrap up:
Adam Lambert @adamlambert
Whew that Breaking Bad finale! Bam! So good.
Emmy Rossum @emmyrossum
Don't my bosses know that a 5am call time the morning after the Breaking Bad finale isn't nice? I need to stay up & cope/process/grieve.
u know when u see a great movie and the crowd claps - or on b way when u stand up - i wish the #BreakingBad cast n crew could feel that now
Mindy Kaling @mindykaling

Conan O'Brien @ConanOBrien
Anyone else thought of chaining Vince Gilligan in a barn to make him come up with another show?
Patton Oswalt @pattonoswalt
Thank you, Vince Gilligan, for conceiving & executing the most bizarre love story I've ever seen. #GoodbyeBreakingBad

Zach Braff @zachbraff
I can't believe Walt was a woman the whole time. Awesome ending. #BreakingBad

The Hollywood Reporter's chief TV critic Tim Goodman:
"I loved Jesse dreaming about building the perfect wooden box (a reference to his earlier days in therapy) and how that contrasted with the box he was put in by the Nazis," he wrote. "I loved how Jesse was able to kill Todd by viciously choking the life out of him but was also able to choose not to kill Walt. I never, for even a second, thought Jesse would die in this series. He was always the misguided innocent. And there's a reason AaRon Paul has those Emmys (and should, by rights, have one from this year)."
USA Today's Robert Bianco:
"If you have to go, go out on top," he wrote. "In a stunning 75-minute extended finale, Vince Gilligan brought Breaking Bad to a supremely fitting close, tying up all the loose ends in his modern classic AMC series and killing off his now iconic anti-hero Walter White. And he did so in a way that confirmed Bad's status as one of TV's greatest series -- and star Bryan Cranston as one of America's best actors."
