Yep, watching Breaking Bad for the first time should be pretty epic

not sure if anyone was watching just now but there was a high speed chase in downtown LA that ended when the driver got stuck in traffic

Breaking Bad cliffs: 1st season is the worst, 2nd season is the weirdest, 3rd is just incredible, 4th is crazy intense, 5th is really dark.

Enjoy the ride Riverman

I took a hiatus after a season and a half because I found it somewhat unpleasant to watch given the constant tension in seemingly every moment in the show (and because I got tired of the girl I'd been watching it with). Never picked it back up.

I'm guessing I should resume watching on the double.

I feel like I'm just missing out on the Breaking Bad love. It's so unrealistic.

If Kevin Love can be the MVP, why can't a HS Chemistry teacher be Al Capone?

I actually bought the first six eps of S5 for $3 each on amazon because I have no clue when a marathon will come around again and am not waiting until next summer for them to appear on Netflix. Yeah I know, to.rrents ftw, lol @ me, whatever.

Right, seasons 1-4, which is where I watched them. Season five won't be available on Netflix until after season six starts. Don't feel like waiting that long.

Definitely. I don't think there's ever been a show that's been so effective at creating tension as Breaking Bad. Add in the tight plotting, the cinematography, and some of the best performances on TV, and it's my favorite show on right now.

It's the only series I always make an effort to watch live when it airs. Can't think of higher praise than that.

Netflix only has S1-4, last I checked (which was a couple weeks ago).

This isn't true. Taking it out hard, drafting, surging, boxing someone in all factor in racing. Moreso in elite races, your average road race won't have this.

They are re-airing season 5 on AMC for the next 8 Sundays, as of this past Sunday. You can get ep1 on youtube for $2.

grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr, goddammit.

As for the youtube thing, the amazon pricing structure was $2 for SD, $3 for HD. Not really sure I'd want to watch an ep on youtube when I can get it on my TV for a dollar more.
