Breaking Bad wins the award for most poetic TV show promo ever. The final episodes of the series, beginning Aug. 11, are heralded by a haunting reading of "Ozymandias" by Bryan Cranston, aka Walter White, aka Heisenberg. Percy Bysshe Shelley's sonnet about the inevitable decline of kings serves as a warning to all those who would create an empire, suggesting time and nature will obliterate the works of man in the end. Given that Breaking Bad is a quintessential tragedy with all the trappings thereunto, including the inclusion of a Greek chorus, nothing could have been more perfect to foreshadow the end. Glad someone paid attention in 10th grade lit.
