Breaking Bad

PostBy: Cap On: Mon Oct 10, 2011 6:52 pm

Hey, anyone been following Breaking Bad the last few seasons? I started watching at the end of season 1 and have been hooked every Sunday night. In my opinion, the best show on TV. Season 4 ended last night with huge shocker and the nice part, no real cliff hanger. More less, ok, now that
( spoiler alert )....................................Gus is gone, what does Walt do now? Amazing show. I only wish AMC showed replays of the previous seasons so I can catch it all over again. To catch a recap of last night's final episode.

Hey Cap,

I'm a great fan myself! I want to find out more about Vince Gilligan, I think he produced the X-Files too. I'd love to win the walk-on-part contest they're having!

The way Walt changed from the mousy teacher to crazed meth mastermind has been awesome! How about Gus! I thought he was gonna make it for a second!
HAHAHAHAHA I had to rewind that and watch it again. The characters are so humanly flawed.

How about when Hank's wife insisted that he not go to talk to the old kingpin, and the next shot is Hank in the DEA office! That's an old trick, but done really well.
So funny.
Fantastic show!

For those of you not following the show, some info from the website.

"Bad is so good. Thank you Vince Gilligan; what a season and what a finale. Few entertainment experiences move audiences the way Breaking Bad does, consistently. The audience growth from season three to season four is unprecedented for any drama in basic cable history and now it has been named the most engaging program across all of television by Nielsen. We can't wait to share with fans what's next in the White house," said Charlie Collier, AMC's president.

Over four seasons, Breaking Bad has been heralded as one of the best TV dramas on television. New York Magazine said, "There's no other show like it." Newsweek said, "Breaking Bad is as addictive as the meth cooked by its cancer-stricken lead character, and just as insidious. It's also TV's finest hour." People said, "The show has evolved into a modern underworld Western - there's nothing else like it." Variety said, "Either appropriately or ironically for a show about meth cookers, Bad is simply one of TV's great addictions."

Breaking Bad stars Emmy® Award-winner Bryan Cranston as Walter White; Emmy® Award-winner Aaron Paul as Jesse Pinkman; Anna Gunn as Skyler White; Dean Norris as Hank Schrader; Betsy Brandt as Marie Schrader; RJ Mitte as Walter, Jr; Bob Odenkirk as Saul Goodman; Giancarlo Esposito as Gus Fring; and Jonathan Banks as Mike. "Breaking Bad" is filmed on location in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

The series first premiered on AMC in January 2008 and follows protagonist Walter White, a milquetoast high school chemistry teacher who lives in New Mexico with his wife, teenage son who has cerebral palsy and a new baby girl. White is diagnosed with Stage III cancer and given a prognosis of two years left to live. With a new sense of fearlessness based on his medical prognosis, and a desire to gain financial security for his family, White chooses to enter a dangerous world of drugs and crime and ascends to power in this world. The series explores how a fatal diagnosis such as White's releases a typical man from the daily concerns and constraints of normal society and follows his transformation from mild-mannered family man to a kingpin of the drug trade.

I don’t watch a lot of TV so I never saw Breaking Bad but all the buzz got me curious. I just received my Amazon order last week, six seasons of Breaking Bad on Blue Ray. We finished season one and will probably finish season two by tonight or tomorrow. :D Great show and watching it on disk is the way to go, no commercials.

All the episodes are also available on Netflix streaming video. I only recently got "hooked" on it and started from the beginning. Haven't watched any of the current season but I'll eventually catch up....

BB will be regarded as one of the TOP 5 TV series of all time. I was able to watch the show from the 1st episode to the last and now show creator Vince Gilligan is doing a BB Pre sequel called "BETTER CALL SAUL" due out next year. I am sure it will be a great show as well.

"Better Cal Saul" details here: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt3032476/?ref_=nv_sr_1

Enjoy the DVD's. The show gets better and better with every episode. :D

For $8.00 per month you can get Netflix. All of the great shows including BB.
I am currently watching "Dexter". Great show from Showtime. Another great show on Netflix, "House of Cards" with Kevin Spacey. Watched first 5 seasons of Lost too until I got lost. Bunch of great movies too.

Breaking Bad was a super show....ohh so great.

Problem is, it is going to be hard to top it.

Lost was good as well, but yeah towards the last season or two I was lost too and it was not
all that great for the ending and such.

"Better Call Saul" to debut in November 2014 on AMC.

This show should be a hoot and it looks like most of the cast from Breaking Bad will be making cameos during the shows run. Looking forward to seeing this show. :D

We finally finished watching all the episodes in order. We would catch a few every weekend. I thought it was a very good series but you want to watch every episode in order for it to make sense because each episode builds off of the others. The final six or eight episodes were great and the final show was an appropriate climax to the entire series.

Sad to see it’s over but now I can check out all the extra goodies you get on the discs, behind the scenes, commentaries, and stuff like that.
