Difficult to look past Breaking Bad.

Game of Thrones would have been up there but for it's Crisp-at-the-1973-Grand-National type of ending.

I've no issue if that's the consensus pick, hard to stay great for 5 seasons and it came pretty close, tho the ending sucked*. Thankfully El Camino came and rounded it up just at 25th hour.

I mean after years of building WW into Heisenberg, this egotistic, power freak of an evil, innocent killing villain, to pull a "save Jessie from white supremacists and die a hero" act completely undermines that very character construct. If little red devils crawled out of the ground and dragged him to hell while Jessie laughing at him with an angel-Jessica Jones hovering over the scene I would've said it's a more fitting ending.

But El Camino is great cause it brings Jessie some well deserved peace, even though he's ended up with nothing... well his life is not nothing, it's more than Walter got in the end.
