Breaking BadPage 1 of 2    (1, 2)
Anybody out here in POF land watch this show? It is seriously one of the best TV shows I've ever seen. Season 3 starts March 21 on AMC. If you havn't seen the show I highly suggest catching up with seasons 1 and 2(online, dvd) before the new one starts.
Here's a little recap of the show from AMC.

Damn, I can't believe no one has commented on this! This is the best TV drama ever and I'm addicted big time. It looks like just you and I Pyro are the only ones watching this lol. Season 4 is the best so far with only 2 episodes left. I just hope they don't wait a damn year with Season 5.

Yeah that last episode was some serious shit,
is all I can say!
As long as they keep the same writer and
actors.....bummer that sexy chick had to
overdose !.....probably wanted more green
than they were willing to pay ! lol
I wouldn't be surprised the brother in law
wanted a little too much pay increase too.....they
just maimed him for awhile waiting for his
ego to deflate some.......

I watched it the first season and it was amazingly good, but the next season I lost interest and haven't bothered since.

A friend of mine tried to convince me to watch this show just a few days ago. Had to turn down the idea though. Too much on my mind to watch more stuff right now since he's already introduced me to Game of Thrones ... and I have to finish the first season from the downloads he put on disc. My friend and his wife is retired so they have all the time in the world to watch TV.

This is interesting.

Somebody at work just mentioned this show, but I have not started watching it.

I'm catching up with season 3 of The Wire right now, another show somebody mentioned to me not long ago.

I'm not usually a tv watcher, but I'm loving The Wire.

How would you say Breaking Bad compares to that?

I enjoyed the first season but I got bored with it because it wasn't going anywhere. And it seemed to be the same scenes or themes played out over and over.

I too compare it to the genius of the Sopranos.
I watched and was intrigued with the first episode and then haven't watched any till last week.
They are running 2 to 3 past episodes right now late at night for everyone to catch up to the season premier which is Sun July 15th.
I'm hooked.

I hate it when people compare
incomparable stuff! I could never watch
the Sopranos, always looked like loud mouthed
posturing wannabe bad guys!
Breaking Bad is all bad with properly placed
humor too ....I liked the part where The King
straightens his tie before dropping dead ! lol
.....gotta look good when you meet Lucifer I figure ! :)
Hope I don't miss the season premiere tonight !

Hey thanks for the tip!! I remember when this came out.I was thinking this looks good. But I never started watching it...I caught the first 4 episodes today...it was good.

to the guy who bashed the Soprano's...that was one of the best shows on TV..

I read somewhere that Breaking Bad has made all other shows unwatchable by comparison. Now, while that isn't exactly true, I get the idea. One of the great things about the show is its sparse use of music. The acting is excellent. I love the visual style. I hope one day South Park will do a parody.

Best thing on television today, and easily among the best ever.

I'm almost glad the last season is being dragged out, 'cause that means it isn't over yet!

I'm working my way through the five seasons of The Wire and enjoying it very much. I will look forward to checking out Breaking Bad in the near future.

I think it should've ended after season 4.

I couldn't even watch all of season 5 last summer . Walt just became too much of a dik and it was just too silly for him to not take the 5 mil and get out once and for all.

With just one episode left, I wouldn't dare guess as to what will happen, as in what's Walt up to.

I hope he doesn't ricin Lydia. I like her.

I tried watching an episode last year but it couldn't keep my finger off the channel changer button. The pacing is ponderous, rather like an expensive soap opera.
I hate having to sit through a whole hour episode before anything meaningful happens.

I found Mad Men, the Sopranos, and the Lord of the Rings movies the same way.

God ! Will these people please shut up and do something here !
Isn't Tosh.O on yet ?

Start by watching the very first episode. mobiletvshows has it free in avi. It's sized for phones but plays on a pc.

While looking up ricin I found this on Wikipedia...

Not to be confused with Rice.

Good thing too as I almost made some chicken and poison soup. Phew! That was a close one. Thanks Wikipedia!

I should donate.

The song Black playing at the end of the episode Face Off is also intensely poignant... and foreshadowing.

Until you travel to that place you can't come back
Where the last pain is gone
And all that's left is black

Fooled them hoping to seem
Like a slave of evil but the product of greed and
It's not a mass so be honest with me
We can't afford to ignore that I'm the disease

And when you follow through and wind up on your back
Looking up at those stars in the sky
Those white clouds have turned it black

Probably my favorite TV drama series ever. I like how it told a cohesive story from beginning to end. I have told several coworkers that I defy them to watch the pilot episode without getting addicted to the rest of the story.

The use of "Baby Blue" by Badfinger was a stroke if genius!!

I agree. I like how it begins in the scene with the lyrics, "I guess I got what I deserve..." My wife and I don't often agree in musical tastes, but we have both very much enjoyed the songs chosen for this series. If a soundtrack album is ever released, I would certainly get it.
