    UNDATED (CNN) -- After a five season run, the AMC series "Breaking Bad" has come to an end.

    "Breaking Bad" "cooked" up quite an ending. the chemistry teacher-turned meth maker was busy in the finale. as always, "Walter White" took care of his family and "took care" of his enemies. Even "White's" ex-partner "Jesse," got to settle an old score.

    In the final moments, white, the man also known as "Heisenberg" was shot and died, fittingly, in a meth lab.

    Critics loved the ending and it seems many fans did too. From Facebook to twitter everyone was talking about it. Famous folks "liked" it too: Jimmy Fallon called the finale "tight, tight, tight!" Gayle King tweeted "perfect finale 2 the best show I have ever seen." Zach Braff joked: "I can't believe Walt was a woman the whole time. Awesome ending."

    Hard-core fans celebrated in style at finale-watching parties across the country. Show creator Vince Gilligan and the cast even got into the spirit at a charity screening and Q&A in Hollywood. He said, "We knew we had to dot every 'I' and cross every 't'. We needed resolution."

    Resolution is something that's often eluded TV finales. The "Lost" finale left a lot of questions unanswered and we still don't know what to make of "The Sopranos" cut to black.

    But when M*A*S*H wrapped up 30 years ago there wasn't a dry eye in the homes of more than 100 million viewers.

    "Breaking Bad" was seen by far less, but leaves the stage burning "white" hot in the public's imagination, with high ratings and, a best drama Emmy win.
