It's the Breaking Bad thread, nag!
« Topic Start: August 13, 2012, 06:01:32 PM »
After seeing all the love for Breaking Bad in the Must See TV Thread... I thought I'd create a thread to discuss the best show currently on basic cable.

So, have it at, yo!

This show totally deserves it's own thread so we can get the 411.

But I have a confession to make...I have a hard time staying up to watch the show in real time, so I've watched the other seasons on Netflix and read the recaps because I hate missing it, so I would love hearing about what I miss.....so school me, beyotches!

I held my breath for the entire last scene last night.

Amazingly tense television!

Still on S1E1. I saw JMad just started too, maybe we can have a parallel discussion for n00bs. Like, a thing I loved about the pilot was that they packed in so much stuff after the flash-forward that by the time Walter killed the two guys, I totally forgot it was going to happen. The way they set up the premise IS a little bit awkward, actually a lot awkward, but so much great acting, so much awesomeness. Looking forward to #2...

Also I thought people's perception was that Walter at the start of the series is a nice normal guy, but he doesn't really seem like it.

Great season. Skyler is really grating but everything else about this season has been fantastic.

Also, spoiler tags shouldn't be needed in here for things that have been aired.

Did I mention that I'm on S1E2? But I'm very good at skipping over posts and/or forgetting stuff, and I totally know what happens in the season 4 finale, so don't worry too much about me.

I hated Skylar around seasons 2/3, then I grew to love her in season 4... Now I'm back to hating her again.

Walter isn't exactly nice, but he does start the series as your average guy stuck in a dead end job with a faltering marriage.

Also, I don't remember two people getting killed in the first episode.

I seem to remember Walt being pretty darn arrogant from the start, even as a teacher. At the time I thought he was just bitter at the path his life had taken, but now it seems that he's just an arrogant guy, and all his success has just fueled it.

I want to re-watch season one.

I am obsessed with this show, we are 2 weeks behind in Aus for season 5, so be only seen the first three episodes of s5.

I am too lazy to search for them on the net, but if anybody has links to episodes 4 and 5, I'd be eternally grateful if you could post a link so I can watch them now rather than waiting

Pretty sure they do, but as I'm not in the united states I can't watch them unfortunately.

AMC does not host them online, to my knowledge. You can buy them on iTunes if you are desperate.

One drug dealer gets killed. Either Crazy 8 or his cousin. The other ends up in Jesse's basement.

There's no way next week's meeting doesn't end in a bloodbath.

Pretty much... but she becomes a much more interesting character as the years go on.

I could easily see Mike or Todd, or both getting killed off before the hiatus.

I think I might want to start watching this show. I'm generally a comedy person, so could anyone tell me some good reasons to watch Breaking Bad?

Character development, plot twists, and there are some really funny moments and lines from time to time. It's just really well done, and anyone that appreciates something well done will like this series. Just like a lot of folks that aren't into horror have really liked The Walking Dead.
