Podcast: The Playlist Talks 'Breaking Bad' Finale & Where The Medium Of Television Is Heading

The Playlist By Erik McClanahan | The Playlist October 1, 2013 at 4:08PM

On this latest episode, host Erik McClanahan is joined by Editor-In-Chief Rodrigo Perez, Managing Editor Kevin Jagernauth, our British correspondent Oliver Lyttelton, and later in the show by writer Cory Everett to talk about the recent "Breaking Bad" finale. But since we've already written about the episode, we try to dig deeper and do more than just recap the finale. Throughout the chat we spin off into other, grander topics involving television as well. How is the medium changing with streaming, binge watching and recaps on every site? Even though most people agree this is a golden age of television, there's still plenty of formulaic material and tired tropes found in even the best shows, "Breaking Bad" included. Warning, SPOILERS abound in this podcast so don't listen unless you've already seen the finale or don't care.
