Twitter couldn't shut up about AMC's "Breaking Bad" finale Sunday night which, as far as I'm concerned, makes it perfectly OK for you to talk about every detail of the "Breaking Bad" finale on Monday, in your normal speaking voice, within earshot of every single person who didn't see it, whether they want to see it or not.
Seriously, y'all — 10.3 million viewers managed to make room for pretty much the only "appointment TV" event outside "Game of Thrones" season, many of which refuse to live under the tyranny of "SHHHHHHH! I DIDN'T WATCH IT YET" oppression, tweeting about "Breaking Bad" in real time, the way life is supposed to be lived.
Here's #GoodbyeBreakingBad by the Twitter numbers:
Here are some of the more popular Tweets from throughout the evening from the stars of the show
This tweet from Bryan Cranston (Walter White) received more than 52,000 retweets:
This tweet from Aaron Paul (Jesse Pinkman) received more than 38,000 retweets:
Here are some tweets from regular Twitter users that aren't on "Breaking Bad" which are funny and probably contain spoilers.
And here's a tweet Aaron Paul posted more than a year ago, which I'm including so you won't be sad.
As for me, well I ended five years of the most intense (and perhaps abusive) relationship of my life by logging off the Interwebz and devoting my full attention to the "Breaking Bad" finale, which is far more gratifying than splitting attention between experiencing the end of something great and trying to tweet the most howlarious quip about the ricin-related dangers of artificial sweetener in the hopes it'll get picked up by BuzzFeed. But that's my choice. Note how I'm not imposing it on you.
