The sensational series Breaking Bad has come to an end. Millions tuned into the final eight episodes to see how the show played out, and numerous others watched the old episodes on Netflix to catch up and be a part of the finale following.
Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan even credits Netflix with helping the series stay afloat.
“Television has changed a lot in six years (since “Bad” premiered),” Gilligan said to reporters after the series won its first drama Emmy, via Variety. “I’m no expert on the sociological elements of it, but I’ve got to think a big part of what has changed is streaming video on demand, particularly with operations like Netflix, iTunes and Amazon Prime.
“I think Netflix kept us on the air. Not only are we standing up here (with the Emmy), I don’t think our show would have even lasted beyond season two. … It’s a new era in television, and we’ve been very fortunate to reap the benefits.”
Now you can catch those final eight episodes on Netflix. Previously, every other season including the first eight episodes of season five were available.
