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.
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.

I did just that the past two weeks. I never watched BB and then caught all 5 seasons within 2 weeks. I have to say that this show was absolutely amazing. There is no way I could have waited five years to catch all that. My curiosity would have eaten me up.

Some thoughts:

Why in the fuck did Walt put up with Jesse for so long. Jesse was so fucking stupid it hurt my brain. I literally cried laughing when he picked up Walt at the airport in the meth lab camper. You wanted Jesse to get his shit together so bad because he truly was a likeable character.

The saddest part of it was watching the relationship between Walt and Jesse deteriorate. Jesse was oblivious to the situations that he put Walt in, and never really grasped that he was responsible for 90% of the bad shit that happened to his loved ones and to himself. Watching the events unfold with Jane/Andrea broke my heart. It's sad Jesse will never understand that Walt truly loved him and thought of him as family.

I highly doubt any show will ever match the epic level that Breaking Bad has achieved. Amazing characters, story, cinematography and acting all rolled up into one. I'm glad to have waited so that way I could catch all this epicness without missing a show or having to wait.

Re: Breaking Bad Season 5

it's also great, cause all you need to do to sell it is have someone watch the first 5 minutes. that's it, you've just created a new fan.

Re: Breaking Bad Season 5

Anyone catching Better Call Saul? I wasn't too sure but so far it has been pretty great. Really captures a lot of the interesting vibe from BB. And Odenkirk is really good.

Re: Breaking Bad Season 5

i just dont seem to get it with Better Call Saul...saw most of last night and all the first episode. Lead role is decent, but the show is lacking imo in many areas. Kinda boring.

Was never a big fan of Breaking Bad

So if you didn't like that you probably won't like Saul...

If its associated with something so critically acclaim as Breaking Bad Im willing to give it a chance especially with Bob Odenkirk staring. Its not that i hate it but I dont like this kind of single linear plot structure drama. After 2 episodes, im like who else do i really care in the story about other than Saul who is a Coen Bros-like completely unlikable lead. It can be slow to develop sometimes and then too much bs in other parts.

I did think the desert scene was pretty genius though

Re: Breaking Bad Season 5

First ep was kinda slow but it's to be expected. It ended with a bang though. I'll check out ep 2 tonight.

Re: Breaking Bad Season 5

ep2 was better, but it's still lacking in the "why should i care" dept. it's decent, but not amazing so far.

Re: Breaking Bad Season 5

Yeah but what shows are truly amazing after 2 episodes? Even BB took a while to build up. It's like reading the first chapter of a book.
