Plus, there's that whole thing with the show being fucking flawless for 4 straight seasons, so I see no reason why it would suddenly start sucking. This isn't going to play out like Dexter where they drag out a very limited concept for multiple seasons, do nothing remotely interesting with the character, and just keep it on the air for the sake of keeping it on the air, spinning wheels and all. The Breaking Bad team are the best on television, and they're going to rock that shit. Hard.
