    When I don't feel like watching Breaking Bad I've been rewatching Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance. Such a good show, so amazingly well crafted and epic in scale. Fucking sucks that Netflix cancelled the planned second season, I would have loved to see them cover the Garthim War.

    but of course
    Walt's diagnosis of being terminal is what makes Heisenberg able to come out
    without Walt finding out he was terminal, Walt's life would have continued to be the mediocrity thing
    if Walt was terminal without ever finding out about it and his terminal condition just killed him in his sleep without him ever knowing that death was "coming soon" then "Heisenberg" would never have been anything more than just a voice in Walter's head
    and watching the last 5 years of Walter's life would have been the most boring TV show ever

    That's right. Typing the same shit, just differently, is boring.

    agreed. it's boring to keep typing the same stuff, only differently.

    but clearly the producers were doing a series-arc with Walt dying having been scheduled as the big-event-of-the-series-finale from the moment of filming the first episode, because if Walter's death wasn't a pre-determined event in the pre-planned-series-finale, then the "trigger-event" that creates Heisenberg would have just been something different than Walt finding out he's terminal

    i mean, duh
    you guys are all idiots for not seeing this instantly

    No retarded faggot, you're the idiot for thinking you're the only one who knew instinctively that Walt would die when the show first aired.

    what i'm saying here
    is that walt dying in the series finale should have been totally fucking obvious to EVERYONE when they first saw the fist episode

    the only fucking reason i even STARTED talking about breaking bad was because of someone saying they were surprised when walt died in the series finale, like they'd somehow forgotten about walt even having the cancer or something

    I'm willing to admit that this might have just been me somehow misreading something when a ton of separate people were all making posts about the series finale

    i still stand by my thought though
    walt-was-gonna-die-in-the-series-finale was something that should have been completely-totally-fucking-obvious to EVERYONE when they first saw the first episode

    i just now re-read book "The handmaid's Tale" and now i'm again thinking this thing should have been a movie
    there have been alot of chick-lit books where the woman finds out she's pregnant on the first page and gives birth on the last page
    and a bunch of these books got made into made-for-TV chick-flick movies on https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lifetime_(TV_network)

    and now after just now re-reading the book
    i think it really could have been one of these made-for-TV Lifetime-Network movies
    but also with the popularity of the Hunger Games and the Divergent trilogy
    i think that the plot of Offred figuring out she's pregnant as the first scene and giving birth as the last scene
    could actually have even been made into a good-at-the-box-office theatrically-released-movie,
    considering the weird dystopian future world of the story

    i'm an American and i completely forgot this movie existed
    even though after reading the cast-list i think i may have actually seen this movie once-or-twice
    and while this movie might something that random Australians or random Europeans might clearly remember
    I'm completely totally convinced that most of the specific Americans who are hardcore fans of the Hulu series
    have completely forgotten that it was a 1990 movie, the same as i did

    and i still think that because of the popularity the Hunger Games movies (2012, 2013, 2014, 2015)
    and the Divergent Trilogy (2014, 2015, 2016)
    The Handmaid's Tale being a 2017 theatrically-released movie could have done decent at the box-office
