If the names Walter White and Jesse Pinkman get you fired up, then you already know this Sunday, September 29, brings the series finale of the blockbuster AMC television show Breaking Bad.

The critically-acclaimed crime drama, which just won the Emmy Award for outstanding drama series last week, has fans wrapped up in the twisted world of Walter White, a science teacher tuned drug dealer. Over the course of five seasons, creator and producer Vince Gilligan, star Bryan Cranston and the superb cast of actors have earned serious accolades and a host of devoted fans.

If you’re one of those fans, this Sunday will be bittersweet. We advise heading out to one of the many Breaking Bad viewing parties scheduled at bars around town to commiserate with fellow followers and enjoy a wittily named cocktail or two.
