My Favorite Television Memory of All Time: I know this wasn’t too long ago but the series finale of AMC’s Breaking Bad was emotional for me. Television shows have to end with unanswered questions, as the characters usually remain existent in their respective universes, but I like how the minds behind Breaking Bad were calculated in the way they approached their final episode. Also, I was with some of my closest friends when it aired. We laughed, gasped, and cheered in a way that usually happens when watching sports. A great drama can tap into such emotional responses. My other favorite finales include NBC’s The Office and HBO’s Oz (although I watched it many years after it aired).
Bio: I’m a New York City-based freelance writer from nearby Fairfield County, Conn. In 2013, I graduated from the University of Iowa with a Bachelor of Arts in English. Growing up, my family gathered to watch ABC’s TGIF line-up every week. That’s where my love for television began.
