Re: Breaking Bad Season 5

The scenes with Walt and Skyler and then Walt, Holly and Skyler were pretty flawless.

I mean the whole episode was great. Great way to wrap an amazing series. I miss it already

Re: Breaking Bad Season 5

Really the acting in it was among the best ever. Cranston, Gunn, Paul, Norris, and Odenkirk probably make up a top 3 ensemble.

The story was good and written fantastically...also mostly believable save minor things here and there but the acting carried it.

I agree with SS...the scene between Walt and Skyler was like a master class in realism.

Re: Breaking Bad Season 5

As an aside...I have watched the new Michael J Fox show (which isn't very good) and I defy anyone to see Betsy Brandt as anyone other than Marie.

Vince Gilligan sure has set the bar sky high for his next show.

Re: Breaking Bad Season 5

Hilarious review from a viewer whose first episode was the finale.

lol funny stuff

Reminds me of my wife who has never watched an episode of BB, she knows the basics from what I've told her. But she wanted to watch the finale and I was like hells no, that would be so wrong and you wouldn't even appreciate it.

I told her I'll gladly watch the entire series from start to finish again with her if she wants. But you can't just watch the ending, come on now.

Might be cool to watch it backwards.

But seriously, I need to start from episode 1. Not sure if I'll be able to watch it on re-runs, or find someone who owns the DVDs. Or maybe I'll netflix it.

In terms of "If you like shows like____, then you'll like Breaking Bad." What are some examples? I remember this site being huge fans of The Wire, talking it up like its the greatest show ever made. I thought it was a good show, but not great. I'm someone who loved LOST, likes the first 3 seasons of Arrested Development, loves Seinfeld (re-runs), Chapelles Show, Dexter to give you a little taste of my choice of TV.
In those terms I'd say The Wire (which you obviously mentioned) or The Sopranos. Actually the movie Fargo might be a pretty good fit because its similar in tone due to the dark subject matter mixed with black comedy.

It's on Netflix.

Try the first 3 episodes or so, although I remember being hooked right away.

No real faults with the show at all. Brilliant writing, acting, production, etc.

I thought the first half of season was good. The second was very good but got cut short during the writer strike so the end feels "Not like an end". Season two really builds on the quality and the show really takes off once Gus is introduced towards the end of that season.

Gotta just plow through it. By seasons 4 and 5 you really start to get the understand you're watching one of the best shows ever.
