Breaking Bad may now be over, but the debate rages on.

With Walter White accidentally taking his own life on the finale of this iconic AMC drama, the journey of a high school chemistry teacher from mild mannered husband and father to narcissistic, murder drug lord is complete.

And with 14 episodes still to go, can Don Draper and company carry the day?

There’s no scientific formula (sorry, Walt) to help one arrive at a conclusion, but that’s what makes the open-ended debate so enjoyable.

Consider the Breaking Bad finale now and sound off: What is the greatest television show of all-time?
