I know NL isn't a very television-oriented place, but I still wanted to know if there are any other Breaking Bad fans out there. I got into it earlier this year and got hooked on it like it was crystal meth. I really think it's the best show on television right now (maybe even the best show ever!) Did the mid season finale last night blow anyone else's mind?

I've always been interested in it but the fact that I don't have cable really hinders my viewership and interest in such an amazingly great show.

I tried to get into it (and i actually found it quite amusing) up until the point where they had to dispose of that corpse and destroyed the bathtub in the process. that whole sequence just squicked me the hell out... i'll stick with Weeds for my controlled-substance-based dark comedy needs, thanks D:

@Jumpman: Netflix has Breaking Bad up on Instant if you're interested, but i doubt they'd have the latest season available :(

I agree with the sentiment that it's the best show on T.V. It was actually that very scene that TBD mentions that made me realize the show was something special.

They have the first four seasons. I highly recommend it to anyone one looking for a new show to watch.

Comedy? I only watched 2 episodes with my brother, but I was under the impression that it was a straight up drama. Seriously, I don't recall seeing even a single scene that looked like it was trying to be funny. :/

@Mickeymac: no, Weeds is hilarious! it's very subtle, but once the series gets rolling, it's amazing. I'm wanting to say it's on Netflix too if you want to give it a shot :3

Weeds is a dramedy (drama-comedy). There's some parallels between the two shows since they have a similar premise in the lead character. Weeds is a little lighter with some comedy while Breaking Bad is straight up drama with some "OH CRAP!!!!!" moments where you have to laugh due to craziness of the situations.

Sorry, mean't Breaking Bad. I don't see how that is a comedy.

EDIT: GeePee seems to be in agreement, I guess. Just noticed that.

I've seen every ep, can't wait fro the final season. Spoilers >>>>>>>>>>
I'm just bummed that Walter killed off Mike...Mike was easily one of the more interesting characters of the lot, oh well it had to happen. And one thing i've got to say is that they're not milking this series like a so called 'Dexter' Breaking bad feels real in the sense that they're not just randomly adding bigger and meaner antagonists every season, rinse repeat 'like' Dexter. If feels like a grounded & realistic journey from start to finish and it's ending when it should.

Looks like it's going to be Hank Vs Walt for season 6. I also hope Jessie finds out about Walt posining that womens child.....But you know what would really drive jessie off the deep end to the point of him wanting to murder walt? If Jessie somehow found out that Walt just stood there and let his girlfriend die while she was drugged out/sleeping and swalloing her own puke. :o

I thought the role was better for him and I just can't take him seriously in breaking Bad.

ive been watching the first four seasons on instant netfllix for quite a while now, and i got up to the part where Gus kills Victor right in front of jesse and Walt. really good show. i thought jesse's girlfriend(i forgot her name, she was in rehab) was awesome! i think the show got off on a strong start! the pilot was phenomenal!

I think Hank had an "OH CRAP!" moment himself in last night's episode.

I had fun once and it was awful.

It's going to be the second part of season 5. Sadly there isn't going to be a season 6.
