"Yeah Mr White, science!!"

Anyone else here watch "Breaking Bad"? Some spoilers under there, so stop if you don't watch and are interested in doing so eventually. I can't do the spolier brackets so...

We bought the 1st season last month and we're gonna finish the season 4 DVDs this evening.

How come I missed this show earlier on?? We seldom watch series on TV; more fun to get the DVDs and chill out without having to wait eons after a season cliffhanger. We have so many series DVD here!! And with the NHL lock-out in effect I guess we'll watch more since there aren't any Montréal Canadiens games on TV anytime soon...

"Breaking Bad" is in my trilogy of fave series so far, with "Rome" and "The Wire". So sad that it'll end next year after 5 seasons (oh, nice bait-and-switch with the "2-parts of 8 episodes" season 5 , AMC!! Hate that.), but I guess that with Walt, aka Heisenberg having lung cancer and becoming such an unlikeable fuck up things had to end soon.

I wonder how long, time-wise, is the show? I read on a blog that from the pilot to the 1st ep. of season 5 there is a year to day. That's pretty fast for Walt to start cooking in a beat-up rv with Jesse to becoming the King of Meth of all southern USA. But hey, I'll suspend the disbelief because otherwise the show is top-notch.

Anyone else here watching it? Oh, I haven't seen the 8 episodes of season 5 that just aired in the US (although I heard about the mucho grande cliffhanger).

BB is my favorite show on television, and I'm excited to see how they end the series next year. You are correct that from the beginning of season 1 to the beginning of season 5 takes place in one calendar year, which does seem a little jam- packed for real life. I'm wondering where they will start the final season- I'm hoping they pick up right where they left off with the cliffhanger ending of season 5, I'm dying to find out what happens immediately after that ending.

We just started watching it on Netflix. To be honest, I'm not that in to it. It's dragging, for me. I think it's because I don't like any of the characters.

How far in are you? Keep watching... You'll grow to love Jesse, he's my favorite. Also, Saul is hilarious.

Not that far, I guess. Halfway through season one? I don't know who Saul is, don't think he's been introduced yet.

Jesse just got evicted from his house by his parents in the last episode I saw. Episode before that Hank shot Tuco.

ETA: make that season two. Didn't realize season one was so short.

Season 2, episode 8, " Better Call Saul".... Stick around until then, he's a great character.

I love it, but my boyfriend doesn't care for the show much. I have no idea why, he says its just not engaging for him. My personal thought is that it's because he is a really good person and I'm much more fluid with my morality. Or perhaps he's more interested in fast paced story lines and I enjoy various aspects of the show that he notices but aren't impressive to him, like the directing, the special effects (I was so horrified by the scene in which Jesse disregards Mr. White's directions to use a plastic tub) and the acting.

I feel bad that I'm so annoyed by Skylar throughout the series. She is so arrogant and rude! Later I feel kind of bad for her, but the first few episodes she's just annoying.

I can't seem to get past S2E5. Will stick around long enough to meet Saul, at your recommendation.

      So..my son is getting married at the beginning of March and I tried on dresses today. I need to lose weight. I'm about 60-70 pounds overweight and I absolutely have to. I'm not one to post statuses but I'm doing everything I can to hold myself accountable. I'm sitting here wanting to stuff my face and I know this isn't the answer. I can do this. I will be okay. I'm going to make myself check in regularly. Whether or not anyone sees this, I am going to be posting.

      Is anyone here from Moore County, NC?  I hope they catch the domestic terrorists that shot up the power substations.  All to stop a drag show!  Throw the fuckers in jail.

      What do people do in the Sonoran desert? I've hiked the hikes I wanted to do. Seems like all that is left is golf, shopping at chains that exist everywhere, and stuff I've done. Oh and eating. I can only eat so many times a day. It's too cold to rent a paddleboard or swim.

      First snow storm of the season hit today. It got windy tonight, and we lost power. Somehow this continues to be a shock to PSE. Why they refuse to upgrade the infrastructure or do something so that 10s of thousands of people don’t lose power and heat literally every time it’s windy, I do not understand. We live in the Pacific Northwest. It gets windy!

      Nebraska's new football coach is an evangelical bullshit artist who participates in "Man Up Ministries" conferences in the off season. Their motto is "Fighting for Biblical Manhood". Excuse me while I go vomit.

      Long time no visit…
      COVID has finally caught up with me. Dad tested positive first, last Friday, then my mother, brother and I all tested positive today. Main symptom is feeling really really tired. Hopefully it doesn’t get much worse 🤞
