Well, there it is. Breaking Bad is finally over. After the hit AMC show ended its run last night with a bloody, satisfying episode, Twitter lit up with a round of internet applause.
Whew that Breaking Bad finale! Bam! So good.

[Do I really need to say this? You might see a spoiler or two if you continue reading this article.]
Breaking Bad has been hailed as one of the greatest television shows ever and now that the finale has aired critics will start debating over where it actually ranks among its predecessors. But that sort of analysis will be saved for another article. This is all about gut reactions after the Breaking Bad finale. Which can probably be summed up in two words: Yeah Bitch.
Others just wanted the cast of Breaking Bad to hear the applause.
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

Some were so happy with the finale that they suggested kidnapping Vince Gilligan and forcing him to keep writing.
Anyone else thought of chaining Vince Gilligan in a barn to make him come up with another show?

Some were happy that the show tied up all the loose hands…
Breaking Bad series finale was mint. Tied up every loose end like a knot. #1 show of all time IMHO

While others were happy that the show just ended.
The great thing about the Breaking Bad finale is that it gave nothing to be happy or angry about. It just ended. Cool show! I mean that!

But most people just wanted to tell Bryan Cranston, Aaron Paul, and the rest of the cast “thank you.”
Thank you, Vince Gilligan, for conceiving executing the most bizarre love story I’ve ever seen. #GoodbyeBreakingBad

The Breaking Bad finale was a wild ride for fans. But for the cast, it was a bittersweet episode. Nearly every member of the cast made a brief statement on Twitter or Instagram last night celebrating six years, five seasons, of perfect television.
Breaking Bad finale was perfect. Sad to say goodbye!
