I met a traveller from an antique land who said: two vast and trunkless legs of stone stand in the desart. Near them, on the sand, half sunk, a shattered visage lies, whose frown, and wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command, tell that its sculptor well those passions read which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things, the hand that mocked them and the heart that fed: and on the pedestal these words appear: “My name is Ozymandias, king of kings: look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!” Nothing beside remains. Round the decay of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare the lone and level sands stretch far away.
I can’t believe that I did not know of the TV show while it has been on air since 2008! Adam told me about it last month. I have not been this hooked on a TV show after seen only a few episodes, for a long time. I binge watched all 4 seasons and now I am so ready for the big finale!
The TV show is engaging because it surprises the audiences with crazy ideas. The main character Walter White manages to switch from a cancer-ridden, financially struggling chemistry teacher to a immoral but filthy rich ice producer and dealer. Walter goes through the hights and lows of life at a speed that is faster than a roller coaster. It amazes me that he picks himself up everytime after he hits the rock bottom. Walter would tell you that he is doing all the lying and killing for the sake of his family. I think a lot of people mistaken him as the hero of the story. Don’t be fooled! The writers of the show are playing with the audiences’ moral compass. They toy with your emotions so you need to watch more and more to determin if Walter is just a desperate family guy or a greedy selfish man! There is absolutely no excuse to be a drug dealer. I can’t wait to see karma catch up with him and everyone else in this TV show. I wonder how they will end it all! Death would be an easy way out. I hope the writers would not disappoint.
The promo for the finale showed Walter White reciting Ozymadias with an arrogant yet deathly tone. It contains theatrical scenes and looks amazing. You must watch it on Youtube! 🙂 (According to the Wikipedia, Ozymadias is “a sonnet written by the English romantic poet Percy Bysshe Shelley (1792–1822)“)
Enjoy the final season of Breaking Bad everyone!
