It's the best season. Nobody told Vince Gilligan that each season of a series like this is generally worse than the previous one. He did it the other way around.

Though being honest I felt the start of series five dipped until the last 6-7 episodes where it just took off and became the best it ever was.

Just started watching this to see what all the fuss is about. Will watch a few episodes a week until the end. First episodes decent and i like the premise of the show.

3 episodes in to season 2 now. Just seen Hector gooseberry fool himself in front of Hank :lol: :lol: :lol:

DING DING DING

Amazing how much Walt bullshits this early on, it's crazy. His memory loss and explanation for it were just cringe worthy.

Very late to the party!

I've started to watch this recently and I just finished Season Two. I think it's brilliant so far, but I have to admit it's a bit slow at the beginning to build up around those characters' background and at the end of Season Two got really interesting now.

I rely on LoveFilm to watch the series, but it's too long to wait for the next disc so I wonder if it's worth to buy the full complete box set for it.

Oh, Heisenberg. I love his character and attitude, but I was told he will get better later on. :datass:

Funny how on the first watch I was a Walt sympathiser early on, now Rewatching it and I think he's a banana split from the word go :lol:

He is overly harsh with Jesse on a number of occasions, though Jesse was a strawberry float up!

For me he didn't turn until after Gus. He had an out but chose not to take it. Greed took over.

Walt made all the right choices until:

letting Meth Damon and his crew know where he buried the money, they were always going to kill Hank. Might as well have let them and at least keep the money hidden.

They only would have pointed the gun at him as a last resort and he would have talked

Just had Saul appear for the first time :wub:

when Walt goes in to his office in a gooseberry fool disguise, "oh hey, shall I call the Feds and say I found DB cooper!" :lol:

Disagree, his mistake was in season 3 and then again in 5
saving Jesse by running over the dealers. That was pure murder, unlike crazy 8 which was sort of self defence. He would have stayed cool with Gus and made loads of money. His next mistake was restarting his business after Gus died. He had enough money to walk away from it all and seeing out his days in comfort. His madness and greed just spiralled from there!

Regarding Walt and my impressions of him.

When he tried to frame Hank in the video, that was my turning point. He'd done a lot of shitty things, but that was the final nail in the coffin for me. The final episode redeems him a little, and his confession that he enjoyed doing the whole meth business thing to Skylar was a great scene. Saving Jesse was also very admirable.


You can hate him but you have to admit, he's a phenomenal character.

Just finished the first season and I am totally hooked!

Finally a TV series that's lived up to the hype.

Easily one of the best TV.

I miss Breaking Bad. Wish I can wipe my memory and watch it all again.

Hard to believe it's been just over a year since the final episode was out.

I remember being unable to focus on work all day. Just wanted to go home and watch it. Avoided Facebook, Grcade, Reddit in case some asshole spoilered it.

On the plus side it's been a year without Earl Gray and his spoilering of the last few episodes (thankfully I missed them).

Just watched 'over' and thought it was unusually slow, and then when Walt is in the diy shop I remembered what was coming.

Stay. Out. Of MY territory.

Goosebumps :nod:

It's like, "wait, why the strawberry float am I worrying about fixing rot under my house when I'm a floating drug king?!"

Gus has made his first appearance and Walt has broken in to Jesse's place to get the meth, didn't realise it finished on a cliff hanger and that bit was in another episode. The crash is coming up soon, the only gooseberry fool bit in the show IMO and dangerously close to shark jumping.

Wrong.
