Bryan Cranston is a great actor. Hard to believe it's the same guy who did comedy shows like "Seinfeld" and "Malcolm in the Middle".

Yeah, that's the bad news. I didn't want to start a thread during the season since the show pretty much plays out like a long movie. While viewers could appreciate great writing and acting, it would be an injustice to start watching Breaking Bad anywhere but season 1 episode 1. My hope is that AMC doesn't drag the series out too long.

As intense as it was, they still managed to get some dark humor into it.
Walt: I'm going to need some assurance.
Mike: I assure you that I can kill you from here.

As good as the finale was, I thought the next to last episode was the best of the season and possibly the series. This season could have ended just as effectively when Walt told Jesse to "run."

This role is so different from anything that I've seen him in that it took half a season to figure out where I'd seen him before. They did an overall fantastic job of casting Breaking Bad...Aaron Paul, G(can't spell it) Esposito, Jonathan Banks, and Bob Odenkirk are all fantastic but I doubt they could carry a series like Cranston does.

Need a lawyer...better call Saul. Check out the videos too.

What is this show about and what makes it so great? I have seen it advertised as "the best show on television" but honestly the commercials never intrigued me enough to watch it.

They just finished season 3. I've heard that Vince Gilligan said that he meant for the series to have 4 seasons, so the next might be the last.

Great casting/acting and great writing. Mad Men, which wins Emmys and Golden Globes, has been described as "slow burn" by several people. This would be Breaking Bad: You're camping and throw another log on your campfire. The impact of the log causes a small ember to fly into some dry grass nearby. You grab your blanket to beat out the fire but that just fans it and your blanket catches on fire. So you grab a container of water and pour it on the fire except that it's gasoline and not water.

Walter White could be your neighbor. Fifty year old high school chemistry teacher, married(his wife is expecting an unexcepted bundle of joy), teenage son(who has cerebral palsey), and is so far in debt that he has to work at a car wash after school. Then he finds out that he has inoperable lung cancer and is given less than two years to live. Almost by accident he discovers that one of his former students is running a meth lab and decides that it's his ticket to provide for his family after he dies.

The beauty of the show is how the characters develop and change as situations change because of Walt's decisions. While it's primarily a drama, it's also has very dark comedic elements. Starting anywhere but the first episode would be like going into a movie half way through it.

Default Re: Breaking Bad

I'm so pumped for the last two episodes of this season.

Walt laughing hystericaly as he looks up from his figurative grave is the greatist / most haunting image of television i have ever seen.

I have a theory that Jesse gave the poison to Gus after he saw how poorly Mike was treated at the Mexican hospital. Jesse's loyalty has been shown to lie more with Walt and Mike but i'm just speculating at that.

Is anyone else a big fan and have any theory's about the final two episodes of this season?

Jokeresque. Reminded me of a combination of Nicholson's Joker when he first saw his disfigured face with the laugh and the camerawork looked like his body at the end of the movie.

My son's comment: "the official episode synopsis: Skyler's efforts to solve Ted's financial problems hit a wall."

I've about given up trying to figure out what's going to happen and just enjoy the ride. Before last night's episode there were so many ways the story could go and I didn't even think of what happened to Walt as one of them.

For your viewing pleasure, the Benneke flop:

Gale's music video is the funniest thing on the show, it was so out of left field. They do such a good job of adding things like that so the show isn't so heavy.

Gale was a freakin trip. I'm glad they found a way to include his character in a couple of episodes. Probably my favorite opening sequence is with the hooker Windy performing to the song Windy. I'm not going to post it because it might not be appropriate for the Watercooler but look it up on youtube and notice how the lyrics coincide with her actions. "who's bending down to give me a rainbow."... The writers don't miss a trick (just like Windy.)

I was already simultaneaously horrified and laughing hysterically after Skyler told Walt she gave their money to Ted. When Walt started cacklng I was struck dumb by the awesomeness.

The episode this past Sunday was one of the best tv episodes I have ever seen, regardless of shows. My wife said the same thing...just powerful stuff, obviously a lot of well thought symbolism. Breaking Bad is the best show on cable.

They do such a good job of character building that when the episodes kick into high gear, the effects and stakes are much more intensly felt.
