How to watch the Breaking Bad finale
Did you miss the series finale of AMC’s “Breaking Bad” last Sunday? Maybe you were watching the season premiere of “Homeland” on Showtime, helping your kid with homework, or sitting down with your tablet to read the Sunday paper after a busy day. Or perhaps you simply forgot to record the widely hyped 75-minute episode.
If you didn’t catch the finale, titled “Felina,” you’re in luck, because there are several ways you can watch the episode—which, by the way, generated an audience of 10.3 million viewers. By contrast, when 106 million viewers tuned in for the series finale of “M*A*S*H” in February 1983, the trusty VCR and eventual rerun months later were the only ways to watch that record-setting episode.
Check our suggestions here, and do your best to avoid “Breaking Bad” spoilers—they’re everywhere!
