Why just needs to admit to everyone that he hates the show because he used to suck dick for meth.

I get why someone would be upset that they are splitting the last season in two, but that's a different issue then the network not wanting to foot the bill again.

I'll have to look it up, but some time this winter there was an online artical which stated (1) Gilligan was not happy, that it was AMC that decided this; (ii) that it was in some people's estimation that it was due to Matthew Weiner's demands regarding Mad Men; and (c) there was an unafilliated show runner who stated that AMC didn't know how to handle their newfound success and allowed one show (MM) to detrimentally influence what happened to their other shows.

I'm certainly not saying I want the show to go on forever or that it can/should. However, if a show has risen in both its ratings AND its critical reception* every single season (and NOT gone up much in production costs), it should be allowed to create its own destiny until that changes.




*why's definitive and obvious superiority notwithstanding

Well if you can find a link to back that up I would be interested. My understanding is they were creating there own destiny, but could have been mistaken.

Just read an article in The Hollywood Reporter that's more in line with what Teacher is saying.
