Default Breaking Bad

Anybody else watching and enjoying this show? Bryan Cranston (Hal from Malcolm in the Middle) plays Walter White, a high school chemistry teacher that is dying of lung cancer so he decides to "break bad" and use his chemistry skills to cook up some chemically pure Crystal Meth and sell it to make money for his family and treatments. Of course things don't go as smoothly as that and we have ourselves one of the best shows I've watched on TV in years.

Sunday nights at 8 on AMC.

First season (only 6 episodes) finished off last night and I can't wait for more.

Yeah, I've watched the first 5 episodes, the 6th is PVR'd. It's a pretty good show... interesting storyline, but it's tough to tell whether or not it's trying to be a drama with some comedy or a comedy with some drama. I'll definitely be watching the second season when it comes around.

I like the show, the first few episodes were really dark.

Also, AMC comes through like GARBAGE on my shaw feed (like crappy TBS quality) so I hope that it either gets upgraded in bandwidth or goes HD, or I'll just have to start Dling it because watching on analogue cable is almost unbearable.

Is it just me or is it a bit wierd that it's an AMC original... but it's censored on AMC. I mean, I get why HBO has lots of swearing... because they're allowed to play it. I'm not sure why AMC would put swears in their own show and then dub them out on the premiere broadcast on their own network.

Great show... guess you'll have to order the DVD's to get it uncensored.

Sweet....don't get AMC so I will have to get my hands on the new episodes....some other way.

There are also some minisodes on Breaking Bad's website.

But man, it's been a year since the show last aired! I'll have to watch the most recent episode again to refresh my memory.

good show. The first season was very entertaining.

I saw the season premiere on Rogers on-demand under 'TV Entertainment'. Picked up just where last season left off... interesting to see what happens. Walter is such an interesting character... I hope it works out for him!

So 2 episodes into season 3 and they haven't missed a beat.

I'm no criminal and am very anti-drug when it comes to the likes of meth, but I'm 100% behind Walt in the battle with Skyler.

Loved Jesse sticking it to his parents after they rejected him.

Love Bob Odenkirk as a sleazy lawyer.

Love the cousins as antagonists -- the opening scene from episode 1 was surreally creepy, and having them go through 2 episodes without uttering a word is brilliant in creating tension. They remind me of Anton Chigurh from No Country for Old Men,

Pollos manager obviously has some major cartel clout.

Best show ever. I've watched all of the first 2 seasons and can't wait for the 3rd. This show has it all, from violence, sex, coarse language, and some pretty hilarious moments.
