That's exactly why they ended it at season 5. The show was popular enough at that point to keep going for years, but they didn't and instead focused season 5 on being the last one. Walt got to be the king like he always wanted and then lost it and felt the karma hard after all the shit he pulled over the course of the show. It's a far more satisfying and personal ending than just leaving it at Walt taking down a particularly nasty drug lord.

It wasn't just about keeping the story going and upping the ante, it was about giving it proper closure. There is no new villain introduced to threaten our leads since they're the ones now filling the void

No, it wasn't. They ended it with season four and just tacked on season five because shit was suddenly making money. Go argue all you want, that's the blatant truth. They would've gone and made a dozen seasons if it had more success earlier and Bryan Cranston hadn't had contracts to do other shit by that time. Don't fool yourself into believing TV producers to be any smart when they accidentally made a good show that got worse as time went on.

The Britcunts and animoo people had the right idea when they make shows that are short and know when to fuck off.

Well, whatever happened behind the scenes, the truth is that the show's natural climax was in season 5. Idgaf if it was by accident or design, but it gave us the finale the show needed. And I do mean needed, because season 4's finale doesn't come remotely close to the payoff of season 5's.

You've never had a natural climax that didn't involve an animal, what would you know?

Well, I know constructive criticism. And amongst some of the rabble on this site, that's like having a doctorate.

In other words: bite me. I dig it.

I was fine with ending it with season 4. By that point the characters were really getting on my nerves.

I suppose that's fair enough. I would recommend finishing the show if you're ever inclined to do so.

Careful with the generalizations. You do realize that Detective Conan is still going after over 900 episodes? Fuck, Pokemon has OVER 1,000 right now.

Also: Doctor Who. It will never die.

Well, Doctor Who is designed to run forever and I couldn't be happier
