Sunday TV Picks: Season 5 finale of AMC's drama 'Breaking Bad'
TV picks for Sunday, Sept. 2, 2012, include the season finale of "Breaking Bad" on AMC; "Royal Memories: Prince Charles' Tribute to the Queen" on KCTS; and "TV's Most Dynamic Duos" on ABC.
Tonight in Prime Time
This superb drama has become "must see TV" this summer. The tension-filled highlights have included a heist involving high-powered magnets, any scene between Walter and Skyler White (Bryan Cranston and Anna Gunn), the train robbery and its aftermath, and last week's riverside finale featuring "fixer" Mike (Jonathan Banks). Expect this show to clean up at the Emmys. It's that good. Tonight's episode ("Gliding Over All") is the last new one of the year. The final eight episodes air in 2013. I, for one, cannot wait. 9 p.m. Sunday on AMC (seattletimes.com/tvlistings).
