A great show.

was bored the other night and was searching through Netflix came across Breaking Bad.

remembered how much praise it gets from OT. looked up what it was about. sounded interesting.

watched the first episode. got hooked. will say, i expected more meth making, but overall, very enjoyable show.

im on S4:E8 now. gonna have to find a way to watch the first 8 episodes of season 5 then catch the rest when it airs on TV.

Not sure how such a great show has slipped by me for so long, but better late than never i guess:P

I prefer the bald Walt. also like the relationship between Walt and Jesse.

gotta say though, Mike is my favorite character thus far. so calm.

you can tell that its a great show by the fact that very few women watch it,when something is liked by a big percentage of the female population then something is wrong with it.women should stay to the walking dead or game of thrones

Yeah, the show's great. And Bill Burr is in it. Very minor role, but still awesome that he's in it.

I knew what that scene was before even clicking on it. Best scene of the show, and some of the best acting in television.

Psh, the dead freight alternate ending is easily the best scene in the show. No idea why they didn't use that in the episode.

Women like A Game of Thrones?

#31 Posted by Venom_Raptor (6958 posts) -

I heard how popular it was and the critical acclaim it had received, so last year I went on Netflix and started watching it. One of my favourite shows and truly one of the best in history, it's so good. Can't wait to see how it ends later this year.

As great as that scene is, i think this one is better:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jFVmQeVduC4

its about 1 or 2 episodes before "Crawlspace"

EVERYTHING works in this scene

[QUOTE="Mkavanaugh77"]It is a really great show. Very suspenseful and entertaining, as well as, amazing actors/acting. I feel like the show has been rushed too much though. 5 seasons is too short for this show. (imo this show could carry on much longer) The show is amazing, but making us fans wait months to see the final episodes is very annoying imo. Id rather them show the whole last season at once than splitting the season in half and making us wait. Im sad to see the show come to a end soon, but have enjoyed every minute of the show.

Shows like that drag on, we have 5 seasons of epicness, that's far better than 13 seasons of drawn out and filler episodes.

Not everything that gets universal praise has to be overrated. Sometimes it actually is that good, and Breaking Bad is that good.

On 4x8 now? Keeep watching, season 4 was my favorite.

Breaking Bad's an amazing show. Anxiously awaiting Season 5 on DVD.

Technically, they split this season in half; the first half aired last summer and the final 8 episodes primere this summer.
#41 Posted by konvikt_17 (22378 posts) -

Just finished season 4.

"Oh shit" was my response.

Greatest show of all time, deserving of being the highest rated ever

But why do you believe the show is overrated? You have yet to elaborate.

Overrated is what you'd call Mad Men, which undeservedly won the Golden Globe for Best TV Drama 3 years in a row. Breaking Bad deserved them.

There's a lot of filler and pointless banters between characters like Marie and Hank to start with...and they constantly draw out episodes that don't need to be in the series. The music is irritating and doesn't fit the scene...and it seems that they're dragging it out. Ending it at Season 4 would have been perfect imo.

I prefaer Mad Men, but Breaking Bad is my second favorite drama. Really either getting those awards would've made me happy.

I use people who claim to not enjoy Breaking Bad, along with people who wear Beats by Dre headphones, as the fastest and most effective means of identifying someone I have no desire to be friends with.
