TO WATCH

SERIES FINALE Breaking Bad, 9 p.m., AMC Now, here at the end, it's funny to think AMC almost canceled this show. However Walter White ends up, the network (and its viewers) is the big loser — although we will be glad to be rid of our weekly Sunday night heart palpitations. We can only hope for an epic, Hamlet-style conclusion in this 75-minute episode. Sail on, Crystal Ship, sail on.
