The title of this midseason finale of “Breaking Bad” - “Gliding Over All” - is a fairly big hint as to where the episode ends. It is, after all, a Walt Whitman quote, and Whitman is one of the few tangible pieces of evidence that could connect Walter White to the criminal empire he's built in the mind of his brother-in-law, the one who always overlooks him because, hey, who's going to suspect Walter? Yet as the episode reached its climax and Hank picked up the copy of “Leaves Of Grass” that would draw a direct line between Walter and the long-dead Gale Boetticher, everything snapped into place in a beautiful, elegant way. If last week's episode strained for that feeling of pieces you always knew would snap into place actually doing so here and there, this week's was a moody, contemplative piece of work that pulls Walter back from the edge just enough to make it all the more tragic when his hubris does him in yet again.

The fifth season finale of FX's outlaw motorcycle gang drama "Sons of Anarchy", which aired Tuesday night, scored one of its biggest audiences, cementing its status as one of TV's most elite and popular dramas. The episode of the series, which is the cable network's top-rated show, drew 4.67 million viewers -- its highest rated finale ever and the third-most watched episode ever. While longtime fans expressed enthusiasm over the numerous twists, turns and betrayals in the episode, some also noted that the level of graphic, horrific violence reached new heights this season, rivaling Martin Scorsese movies or other critically acclaimed series such as "Breaking Bad" and "Boardwalk Empire".

The Dec. 15 episode of "thirtysomething" was really something! And every one of the previous shows was also well thought out and acted. Milton F. Zimmerman, Pacific Palisades

Neal Marlens and Carol Black, the creators of ABC's "The Wonder Years," had plenty of time last season to hand-craft each episode of the nostalgic comedy, which reminisces about life in suburbia circa 1968 through the eyes of a 12-year-old boy. After all, there were only six episodes. The run was short but sweet--the show won favorable reviews, was picked up for fall and netted an Emmy Award as the season's best comedy series.

Al Halpern's letter (TV Times, June 2) voiced disappointment in the last episode of "Dallas" (CBS, May 3), but that was nothing compared to the last episode of "thirtysomething" (ABC, May 28). How could the writers of the marvelous show traumatize it's loyal fans by not tying up the loose ends better than they did. The possibilities were endless. Susan J. Becker, Oxnard

Sunday's episode of "Downton Abbey" on PBS featured a guest appearance by one of opera's biggest living talents: Dame Kiri Te Kanawa. The New Zealand-born soprano played Dame Nellie Melba, an actual opera singer who hailed from Australia and whose career spanned the late 19th and early 20th centuries. "Downton" portrays Melba as a guest performer of the Crawley household, serenading the family after dinner with the aria "O Mio Babbino, Caro" from Puccini's opera "Gianni Schicchi.

The "Simon & Simon" episode on March 5 was excellent. It brought out not only what our soldiers went through 20 years ago, but also what these same men are experiencing now. My only criticism is that the episode should have been longer, maybe a two-hour special. When dealing with a subject such as this, handled as well as this was, CBS should have given it more air time. Congratulations to Gerald McRaney and everyone else who had a part in this episode. Lindsay Soderlund, Glendale
