First off, we should all be ashamed that we do not already have a Breaking Bad thread.

There.

I've said it.

We are all bad people.

Terrible people really.

What kind of forum doesn't have a Breaking Bad forum? I'll tell you what kind: One that has something to hide.  A forum that feels like the subject matter hits too close to home. 

But the time of hiding is over. The final season is here.

Discuss.

Spoilers.

(duh)

Wow, that Jimmy Fallon "parody" was just bad from start to end.

 

Breaking Bad is a great series, but I wish they'd planned ahead more. Although the individual episodes are top notch, the overarching storyline is poorly represented in each episode.

Breaking Bad was/is (minus the last half of the 5th season) a fantastic series.  I have two main issues with the show as it is now.  I believe the writers dragged certain parts of the story out too long (I'm not a fan of writers delaying things in order to hype/play up/ etc.) and for me taking a break halfway through the 5th and final season doesn't amount to much more than being the proverbial cock tease.  Secondly, once you've dragged certain aspects of a story to hell and back you tend to lose momentum as well as continuity.  When the show resorts to things such as the 'hello kitty' burner cellphone given to Jessie by Saul having voicemail so that Hank can conveniently hear things he is 'supposed' to hear makes it obvious to me that the show's writers are in a pickle.  The pickle of not being able to continue and/or end what in previous seasons (to me) was such a fantastic show.

In my opinion they should have ended the show within the first few episodes of season 5.  Of course then they wouldn't have been able to capitalize on the cult they've been able to grow so exponentially during the hiatus between the halves of the final season........

 

Same thing happened to another favourite show of mine: Dexter.  They let it go on too long, and now the show is just crap.  Dexter should have ended easily 2 seasons ago.

 

I have since moved on to shows such as House of Cards, Orange is the new Black etc. etc.

Really. Nice on a family site.

Really. Nice on a family site.

Before we get into it, all Stardock sites are PG-13. We're not targeting kids.   And this is a TV show regarding a guy who makes meth.

Back on topic:

My wife and I have been binge watching the show. We're only up to mid season 4 right now but it's very addicting. That said, I wouldn't have been happy having to wait weeks or months between some of these episodes.

A show about making Meth that is very addicting. Am I the only one that sees the humor in that statement?

Geez doortech1, high-horse much?  As has been stated, we're talking about a show that depicts the use and manufacture of meth, depicts the bloody HEAD of a person wobbling around on the back of a turtle, bodies being dissolved in acid, throats being slit, people bleeding out, someone choking to death on her own vomit, young children being subjected to violence (one being poisoned and one being shot)......and that's just for starters, good thing we're not all here discussing a 'family show' eh?

Hey....you forgot the bloke who went bankrupt rather than pay the IRS .....now THERE'S a crime....

Seriously though, Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul are some really great actors.  That scene I was alluding to in my previous post where Walt just stands there watching Jessie's girlfriend choke to death on her own vomit......amazing!  In my opinion one of the darkest/most evil scenes with Walt.  Aaron Paul has just gotten better and better throughout the series and has in my opinion even surpassed Bryan's greatness with season 5.

I dunno that I could separate just those two.  The entire cast are top notch....eg. the Lawyer is even shadier than a Used Car salesman..

Same goes for those other two shows I mentioned...
