Blog: How could Breaking Bad go about it's final season?

A few days after entering the new year, I finally managed to finish watching all of the currently aired episodes of Breaking Bad, and I do agree that it one of the best drama's on TV at the moment. Of course, with the show renewed for 16 final episodes, you do have to wonder what direction they'll take to close out the show. I have an idea.

Battlefield Earth (2000)

File:Ew be spoof.jpgA worse religious recruitment film than Passion of the Christ

It is the year 3000. Earth is ruled by aliens known as Psyclos, who have decimated Earth to mine for Gold, which is apparently valuable to aliens to. Few humans remain, some are kept as slaves for the Psyclos, and Johnny (Tyler Pepper) begins to build a resistance against the Psyclos.

Battlefield Earth won all 7 Razzies it was nominated for at the 21st Golden Raspberry Awards, and in 2010, was the recipient of the Worst Picture of the Decade award. But the big question is, did it deserve those wins? Hell yes it did.
