What It’s Really Like When Your Favorite TV Show Ends

In case any of you haven’t been on the Internet for the past two weeks, the show Breaking Bad had it’s series finale last night. I’ve never watched Breaking Bad myself (I KNOW. I’m going to very soon I swear), but I can totally empathize when my friends who are legit depressed because their favorite show will no longer be putting out new episodes. In short, it sucks.

Once you get into a TV show, you don’t only like watching it – you start to develop a sort of connection with the characters. You feel for them. You talk about them like they’re real. You get more excited about staring at them for an hour on your television than you do about seeing actual friends in real life. Dramatic? Maybe. But as any TV addict knows, it happens. The day my favorite show in the world, Gilmore Girls, ended, I cried so hard my mom thought something awful was happening to me.

So for those of you mourning the loss of Breaking Bad (no spoilers in the comments please!) or just those of you who are upset about the ending of any show, this is for you… what it’s really like when your favorite TV show ends. Sigh. This might get emotional.


You find a TV show that you’re totally obsessed with.

The episodes feel like they’re getting shorter. Are they getting shorter?



The day of the final episode, you feel anxious.

No one understands your pain. People think you’re crazy for crying like a maniac.



The day after, you’re dazed. Did that really happen? Is the show really over?
