Is it a good show ? What's it about?

0 |

I smell a troll but I'll bite.....

Great show. Chemistry Teacher with cancer starts making meth with an ex-student to pay the bills/leave something fro his family if he crokes it.

Up there with Sopranos and the Wire, full of dark humour, very well written, themes, symbolism blah blah blah

Get into it if you haven't already. It's rare when a show gets better as the season go on. S5 is the final one.

Just finished season 1 and it's great! Gonna have to avoid this thread in case of spoilers now. Saw a s5 picture on facebook and am soooo intrigued as to how he gets there.

No trolling lad. It sounds lethal. It's on Netflix so I'm going to have give it a go. Sounds class

0 |

It's the only thing I've been really mad about since the Wire and Sopranos finished. Get on it!!

Great show. But a thin set of flimsy characters IMO.

0 |

Have heard nothing but good things about it.

0 |

It'a really good. Last series was class. Aul Gus

Thin set of flimsy characters mate.

Filmsy Characters on TV. What's the problem??

0 |

Ha, Whoops, I thought you were coming up with your own words there.

FLIMSY!!

Well, now I just don't think we can be friends!

0 |

It's a bit too fantastical at times and suffers from cliffhanger syndrome but what would you recommend in it's place?

0 |

I just mean that besides Walt and Jessie, you meet characters, but you don't get to know them. Think about the likes of the sopranos, you get to know the inner workings of everyone.

I found it pretty dull by the end, was a very good first 2 series. Just seemed to be the same plot every episode with the family becoming even more irritatingly shite every episode.
Best character in it is Hank and once he got depressed there wasn't much humour at all.

0 |

Wondering what direction S5 is gonna go big time, S4 tied everything up very very well, maybe with one unanswered question

0 |

aLEGEND, that's a fair enough point but the whole show is about Walt (and to a lesser extent Jessie). It's in the name. Without spoiling it for some, their transformation has been very interesting. Brian Cranston is the shit!!

There's no denying we've been left with a void since Sopranos and the Wire finished though.

I thought Season 2 was the weakest so far and that was due to the writer's strike forcing them to change/shorten a few story arcs.

0 |

i watched all seasons in 2 weeks last month. I felt like a meth head at the end. Gus has to be the best bad guy on any show ever.

0 |

its mad the way, you feel bad for walter, and loathe him at the same time.

0 |

he's a complex character.

0 |

walt is pretty much the only good character in the show. jessie is a melter, unbearable at times. walts son is a complete and utter twat. walts brother in law is likeable and almost a good character. the wife, wtf is she all about. gus was decent, reminded me of that brother something or other character from the wire. he was sort of just a rip of him wasn't he.

0 |

brother mouzone from the wire

walt is a monster though, his original defence of looking after the family is long gone. jessie is a melter but at least his heart's (almost) in the right place

hank FTW

i only started watching this recentley great show! woud be perfect for cathing up on over the winter months!

0 |

Awesome show! Bring on season 5! Aul Jessie like

0 |

Jessie seems to be marmite to people, I think he's great

0 |

Just bought series 1 on Blu-Ray, know fuck all about it except that he is a chemistry teacher who becomes a meth producer or something, and that it is very highly regarded.

Might have a wee jeff juke at it tonight in fact.

I watch very little in the way of series' , but this is great.

Anyone know where I can watch Season 4 online? It's not on netflix yet.

0 |

Episodes "face off" or "boxcutter". That's all I'll say. Tension wouldn't be in it.

0 |

If you're looking to watch it legally, try iTunes, if not, any one of a myriad of torrent sites would sort you out.

0 |

This will separate the sopranos/breaking bad geeks from the rest. What episode in breaking bad is remarkably similar to pine barrens. I love it when walter turns into a chemistry macgyver.

0 |

"Salud" was the best Gus episode IMO.

0 |

This is my problem with shows, I always compare them to either the Wire or The Sopranos, and they never ever come up to that level.

Absolutely not true.

0 |

All the characters are good. Saul is funny. Marie is a melt, but that only makes you like Hank more. As for walters son, the actors got cerebal palsy, and does a good job.

0 |

season 3 is the worst, though, i bet the whole jesse/walt issues from end of season 2 through season 3 will have a part to play with the finale of the whole show.

Just watched it. Solid start to the series. I just grabbed a torrent off isohunt. Good quality.

0 |

Brilliant, fucking wonderful yeah, science!

solid start to the season

glad they answered a lot of issues quickly in the first episode, skylars fella in hospital, walt pissed at saul, mike coming back, get them out of the way. Typical flashforward at start of episode, thought this one sets the season up nicely. Glad Mike came back quickly. I'm glad he's decided to work with them.... for now.... and Walter has definately is more bad ass without gus. I dont know if you seen a trailer for the next episode. I think they may get another 'gus type' character into the show. Im thinking gus has to have a silent partner somewhere they dont know about. As far I can see. The mexicans are pretty much out of the picture.SPOILER SPOILERSPOILER SPOILERSPOILER SPOILERSPOILER SPOILERSPOILER SPOILERSPOILER SPOILERSPOILER SPOILER

soz didn't see your link there.

great show, i found jessie a total melt the first season with all his wigga yo-ing etc but he grows on you. the way him and walt change is class. jessie is a little scumbag but his hearts in the right place but walt just turns out to be brutal, calculating and cold. absolutely love the brother in law and gus.

while bb is good though, it's very hard to compare anything to the sopranos and the wire though, them two shows will never be topped for me.

0 |

I forget how bad a actress the lady who plays Skylar is.

0 |

we just started the 2nd series last night. oul tuco the maniac. 2 pair baby!

yeah, hard to compare it to the wire yet, which is still king. mate that gave me bb said season 3 and 4 are immense. even when compared with the wire.

0 |

i think she's decent
some of the bit part ones like tuco are a bitt ott

love saul too, hillarious
