The episode "Felina" marked the end to Vince Gilligan's wildly popular New Mexico drug drama, "Breaking Bad." Sunday's finale drew over 10 million viewers. Jim Braude and Margery Eagan talked with Bob Thompson from Syracuse University about the end of "Breaking Bad," then opened up the lines to callers.
