Carlos, Rey Emperador: Episode 17 Review

Carlos I en Yuste

One of my favourite shows of all time is Breaking Bad. Many things about it made it great, but if there was something that I always found ironic about it, it was the fact that it spent five seasons talking about how the main character was going to die of cancer, and in the end he died of a gunshot in the stomach.
