TV Weekend: Things That Are Not The Wire

As we prepare to send off TV’s greatest drama, a few moments to remember your other options this weekend:

* The finale-that’s-not-really-a-finale of Breaking Bad. The series, originally intended to have a ten-episode order, was unceremoniously cut to seven by the strike, which means that the final episode ends the season arbitrarily. …
