Love me some Breaking Bad. I just started watching about 2 months ago but caught up with the help of Netflix streaming. Can't wait for the final 8 episodes.

Also started watching Hell on Wheels on netflix. Another highly recommended AMC Series.

Anyone realize that in the latest season we only see Walter White like twice? The entire time it's Heisenberg. The monster has completely took over and he "broke bad" Anyways, I have so much love this show and I'm almost positive I'm getting a Heisenberg portrait on my leg

Been in love for over a year now, managed to get all my friends to fall in love with it. So bittersweet that it's finally ending. I have a feeling that the next 8 episodes will be the best they release.

That fucking Train Heist episode tho.

Hey am I the only one who thinks Guss looks kind of like Obama? :lol:

Amazing Series. I watched the first two seasons a couple of years ago(When the plane crash). Just started watching it again, on season 3: episode 11 so far. Need to get back on that, haven't had a chance to watch an episode in a couple of weeks. But as far as I know, my friends have told me the series gets way more intense, crazier, and fucked up, especially in season 4 and 5.

No Way!!!!:eek: Really???:lol:

The transformation really took place last season when he poisoned Brock and then killed Gus.

This is where Heisenberg took over permanently:

Great show, it's too bad we've got to wait until next year to see how it ends. Becasue of how Walt has used and manipulated Jesse this whole time I think it would be cool if Jesse is the last man standing when everything is said and done.

Along with Michael C Hall on Dexter, Bryan Cranston and Arron Paul's performances on this show are the best i've ever seen on any cable drama.

Hank shouldn't have wasted time calling Marie. Once he had Walt in cuffs and in his vehicle he should've hauled his ass off to jail as fast as possible. While Hank was on the phone with Marie I was talking to the TV telling him to "get the fuck outta there, Walt's guys are coming".

Another awesome episode and another great cliffhanger ending.

Holy fucking shit IS really all I can say about that episode. It's a damn shame that this show is finally coming it's end. It was one hell of a ride. Walter White will go down in Television history as one of the greatest Characters in TV Drama. :hmm:

My friend said the best thing

Here's how I hope they end it.

Walt kills Todd and his crew saves Jessie's but Walt dies in the process

Fast forward two years
We see Jessie kicking it in Albuquerque by himself the the camera is on ground level and all we hear is "click.... Click.....click.... Click"
As we see two crutches come into view.

Camera pans up and we see Walt JR.
"J-j-j-j Jessie, we need to C-c-c-c-cook."

Then you get the sequel show "Walking Bad"

The scene with Walt and Sklyer was my favorite part of that episode. Especially the "I did it for me, I was good at it, made me feel alive" part. One thing i love about this show is the timing and placing of songs during ending credits or certain scenes. I knew they would choose a dope song for the ending and I think "Baby blue" by Bad Finger was just PERFECT. Especially with the opening lines "I Guess I got what I deserved"

It's safe to say that this series will go down as one of the greatest TV shows of all time. :hmm:

Yep, it is one of the greatest, if not the greatest TV show ever. I'll have to re-watch the show again but I don't recall it having any flaws or at least any that bothered me too much.

Future TV show writers need to use Breaking Bad as the template for how to write a proper show from beginning to end. The main story never got pushed to the side in favor of the show going in a different direction. The series creator and the writers remained focused on giving us a complete story with no bullshit. That's what made it so great, they knew what they wanted to do and never strayed from it.

It's gonna be a long time before we see a show this good again on TV and see performances as strong as Bryan Cranston's and Aaron Paul's were.

This.

Top class all the way, probably the most satisfying ending I've ever seen to a TV show.

I will have to re-watch and see how it ranks upon second viewing, but it is absolutely one for the ages in how to do a long-form narrative and make it work.

I find it funny Aaron Paul is doing 'Need for Speed' and Bryan Cranston is doing 'Godzilla', really obvious they wanted much lighter roles after such harsh roles as Walt and Jesse. Those films will probably be like holidays to them in terms of stress and getting into character!

I'm drained. Me & the wife started this on Netflix back in October (hitting Project Free TV for the last 8 episodes) & just finished it. I haven't felt actually emotionally involved in the last few episodes of a show since Six Feet Under. Even though I loved Dexter, the finale just really trashed the franchise IMO where this finale lived up to the hype.

And Ozymandias, if a better hour of tv has ever existed in the history of tv then show me. I would much like to see it.

I'm reviving this thread. I just got into the series (I keep finding the DVDs on sale, so fuck yeah!) this year and am midway through the second season. Such a great show. All the characters have a meaning, all the intense moments are intense, and it really makes you think. I like how they have something happen in one episode, then 7 episodes later they revisit that and you go "Oh hey, I forgot abuot that!" Can't wait to get further!

Wow I had no idea this thread existed, oops. Me and the wife ordered up Netflix entirely for this purpose...we binge watched every single episode in 6 or 7 days flat, but this was more than a year ago or so. I've never seen a TV show so good.

^Honestly, I didn't see how things could go much further than midway through Season 4...I literally said to myself how in the hell can this keep going?! Every episode felt like it could be the end. Enjoy, I wish I could go back and watch it for the first time.

And I can't get this damn song out of my head.

Roughly halfway through season 4... started off a bit slow, more focused on character building between Walt and Sky, but now its gotten intense with what's his face (DEA agent bro in law) and him being too smart! Last episode I watched ended with Gus and that older Mexican dude in the wheel chair reliving their past.

I thought Gus' partner in that flashback was the same guy that he met with to talk about their deal, but obviously that could not have been right.

I thought Gus was giong to be like The Terminator or something and just walk away, but nope. The series definitely could have ended there, but now two more seasons.

The second half of Season 5 is legit insane. Nothing will compare to watching it week-by-week with all my friends smashed in a tiny apartment a year ago and having to wait a few days to go find out what would happen next.

I'm pretty sure this was me and my friends during every Season 5.5 episode: "WHAT THE FUUUUUUUUCK. SHIT. FUCK." (someone dies) "OHHHHHHHHH SNAP. DID THAT JUST HAPPEN. SHIT GOT REAL. DAAAAAAAAAAAAMN."

Season five is the final season, it's just divided into two parts. I hope you didn't get scammed and accidently buy a season six which doesn't exist.

You should be good. Season 5 was broken into two 'parts'. The first half of season 5 dvds is labeled Season 5 and the second half is labeled The Final Season.

Finished up the series over the weekend :rocker:

So great, just so great. I forgot what moment it was that lost all respect for Walt and hated him, but that last episode really made me root for him. I guess in a way you could say that he had the last laugh. I didn't understand why he had to kill Lydia too, but I guess since she was helping produce HIS product, why not!?

I knew that Hank would die somehow, I just didn't know how it would happen, so as unsurprised as I was, it was still shocking... and then Jesse's ex-Girlfriend... gaw.... so many intense moments! Such a great series, and I now see what all the hype was over it, and it lived up to it 100%. I really love how that last season was just bad thing after bad thing, everything fell apart, it made me, as a viewer, even feel there was no hope for things to turn around, then to go out with a bang (pun intended) really made it all come full circle and end on a (kinda) high note.

I'd still like to know what became of the White's and Hanks wife, as well as Jesse. I thought Walt Jr. was going to die, but really happy that expectation didn't occur! Anyone know why those guys were sitting in that car watching him as he got off of the school bus? Seemed kind of random.

Was it? I didn't expect it at all. The very first time I saw Breaking Bad was when Walt was down on the bathroom floor talking to Skylar, I thought that was the season finale so the whole time I watched this series I was under the impression his cancer got the best of him and he died that way, didn't expect him to go down the way he did.

I know Im completely behind on this as many others of you were too. I just finished the series last night after a good 2 month binge watching an eps or 2 every other night with the wife....

HOLY FUCKING HELL what a show!!!:eek: Never has a show gotten me so enthralled and cared about characters so much! I was so sad to see it end :bawling: But I think they ended it justly!

Just re-read through this whole thread and many of you are spot on with the amazing eps. When Walt completed his "confession" I was fist pumping the air and cheering a huge Fuck Yeah! One of the best scenes!! The transformation, the heartbreak, the evilness, the father... my God! So many parts and eps stand out!

Completely agree...one of (if not) the best TV show ever!

Loving Saul BTW...cant wait to see how it ends this Monday!!!

I'm loving Saul too. The tie-in with Tuco is really timely because I haven't watched all of BB yet, but I did just happen to watch the episode where he gets shot dead last night (I'm only in Season 2 so far). I've seen bits and pieces of the rest of the BB series - enough to know that Mike is a very interesting character and I love what I've seen of him in Saul thus far. So hating Jimmy's crazy brother right now. What a douche.

EDIT: To whomever said that they didn't know if Bob Odenkirk can carry a whole series on his shoulders, I have two things to say: (1) fuck that, he's fantastic and he obviously can, and (2) he doesn't have to, because there are already a bunch of other great characters forming throughout this show, such that I think it'll be a very interesting series. Looking forward to see where the writers will take it.

:D
I've seen it done, but nobody called it a Chicago sunroof at the time. :D

Back on topic...I'm about halfway through the series now. The last episode I watched was S3E9 "Kafkaesque", wherein Skyler proposes to Marie that she and Walt pay for Hank's medical bills with the money Walt made while still in the throes of his severe "gambling habit". Clearly this is the point where Skyler starts to get more involved with Walt's shenanigans, which I knew about to some extent because of seeing bits and pieces of random episodes when my wife was power-watching the series about a year ago. Looks like things are going to get even more interesting from here.

Speaking of the tie-in with the "Saul" prequel series...Saul is clearly a different person by the time he reaches this point in his life. All traces of the conscience he had in the first season of the spinoff series are gone when we meet his character for the first time in BB. It'll be interesting to watch the transition from Jimmy to Saul since he clearly has a lot of devolving to do throughout the storyline. I have to admit I was a bit sad at the way the first season ended, as I really wanted to see him take the new offer with the other firm to work on the case he had built and get paid handsomely for it - but of course I knew he would eventually have to turn away from his conscience in order to connect the dots to him eventually becoming the Saul we love to hate from BB.

EDIT: Both of these shows are freaking spectacular. :D

I'm about 2/3 of the way through Season 4 at this point. The last episode I watched last night was familiar to me because I had seen part of it when my wife was watching the series. I have a feeling the next few episodes will go fast because I already know what will happen (but now I can enjoy it more because I have all the proper context).

Can't wait to see how this thing ends. As I've said before, I think I know te biggest spoiler of the series already, but (1) I'm not 100% sure I've heard it correctly, and (2) I don't know the details of how or why it happens, so I'm still in good shape to be surprised by the ending.

The worst part will be that when it ends, there will be no more to watch. "Saul" isn't a bad surrogate, but so far the original series has been much more gritty and just plain badass. Watching Jimmy transform into Saul just doesn't seem to be as compelling of a concept as watching Walt devolve into a complete monster.
