Breaking Bad Postmortem: Can Walter White Be Redeemed?

Bryan Cranston, Anna Gunn

Despite the number of terrible things Walter White has done over the course of five seasons on Breaking Bad, the formerly meek high school chemistry teacher-turned-meth kingpin still has viewers who cheer him on in his disastrous journey. 

But Sunday's episode —which to this viewer's eye was the last step in Walt's transformation from Mr. Chips to Scarface — certainly has to bring an end to all of that, right? Probably not.

Early on Sunday's antepenultimate episode of Breaking Bad, Walter White collapses on the hard desert floor in sadness. And although things get considerably worse for Walt as the episode goes on, in that moment, Heisenberg is the embodiment of the Percy Bysshe Shelley poem from which the episode takes its name.

Cancer has always been a significant part of Breaking Bad. It was only after Walt (Bryan Cranston) was diagnosed with inoperable lung cancer that he began cooking crystal meth to provide for his family. Five seasons later — after remission and following Walt's complete transformation into a murderous drug lord — Walt's hoping the return of his cancer will keep him out of the clutches of his DEA brother-in-law Hank (Dean Norris). But the cancer at the center of the show is no longer the tumor on Walt's lung — it's Walt himself.

Guide to Weekend TV: Hell "Breaks" Loose on AMC, Plus Sharks and Monkey Business

Christopher Heyerdahl

NBC will surely miss the Olympics ratings bump once the Games are over, with closing ceremony set for Sunday, but the rest of TV is more than ready to get back to business. Even as the torch is being snuffed on NBC, the lights are going on elsewhere.

Including on AMC, which airs one of the most gripping episodes to date — and that's saying something — of its dark masterpiece Breaking Bad (10/9c), in conjunction with the return of the drearily dour Western Hell on Wheels (9/8c) for its second season.

Critic's Notebook: Finale Roundup (River, Southland) and a Bent New Comedy

Bruce Greenwood, Eloise Mumford, Joe Anderson

A mere two nights after The Walking Dead finale shattered cable ratings records, and more than a few nerves, with its zombie shooting gallery at Hershel's now-abandoned farm, two more dynamic series signed off for the season Tuesday night — hopefully not for good (though one seems a likely goner) — giving us some fun and tense times. Sometimes both at once.

5 Reasons to Fall for NBC's New Romantic Comedy Bent

Bent, David Walton and Amanda Peet

Blink and you might miss Bent, NBC's new romantic comedy, which premieres Wednesday at 9/8c. Although the series will only be on for three weeks of back-to-back new episodes, Bent actually deserves a closer look. The comedy, from Scrubs writer Tad Quill, follows a newly divorced, high-strung single mother (Amanda Peet) and the lackadaisical ladies' man she hires to re-do her kitchen (David Walton).

So what makes this half-hour comedy worth the investment? Here are five reasons to check out Bent:
