It has not been an easy six weeks for Breaking Bad fans, what with the constant fear, stress-eating, and inability to concentrate on anything other than Walter White’s impending downfall come Sunday nights. Scheduling the Emmys during the penultimate episode was a bold move by the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, as much of the show’s audience (and attendees) had Heisenberg’s blue on the brain. “I’m not saying I would rather be at home watching Breaking Bad, because it would be impolite, but I am implying it,” The Daily Show’s John Oliver told us on the Emmys red carpet Sunday night.
The slightly resentful comedian believes he’s not in alone in wanting to on the couch, rather than decked out on a step and repeat. And although Bad’s final season consists of the “bleakest 60 minutes of television” he’s ever seen, he’s still hopeful for a happy ending. Check out his thoughts on next week’s series finale and the kind of death scene he’d give himself in our video above.
