Breaking Bad on AMC


Recommended Posts

I started rewatching the series on Monday and I'm almost through season 2. I have a job, a wife, a kid and I've watched a lot of playoff baseball this week so I'm not sure how I've done this, but I did.

Forgot how good the early seasons were.

Never got the hate for her.

Thought she was good....and she killed it those last few eps.

Considered Skyler as no more than irritating in the way wives can be irritating until she was in on it. Then she was the corruption equivalent of "i will mitigate the sin of prostitution by being a bad lay" and that drove me to absolute distraction every time a story was based around the home for the rest of the series.

I'm not trying to live blog my rewatch or anything, but last night I was watching the penultimate episode of season 2. The very end of course is when Walt unintentionally knocks Jane onto her back as he's trying to wake Jesse. My wife was watching with me and she has a real aversion to seeing people throw up, real or fake, so I muted it as she looked away as it all played out.

Watching Cranston act that scene out with no sound, just focusing on his actions/inactions/reactions, was just incredible. The next time you find yourself on Netflix without something specific to watch, do yourself a favor and pull up this episode and watch the ending with no sound. Promise you won't be disappointed.

And since there are no good samaritan laws in ABQ, you have that added benefit of seeing Walt not break any laws in the scene.

I would watch a series based solely on Skyler making pancakes for Finn. Anything in the BB universe is gold. 

I would watch a series based on Lydia and her history with Madrigal, if only to see Laura Fraser playing that role again on a regular basis. :wub:

Hell yeah!  It's pointing out the obvious, but Cranston was incredible in that scene.  Just one of many where he put on an acting clinic.

Second only to his phone call to Skylar in Ozymandius, which may be the greatest bit of acting I've ever witnessed (at least, been cognizant of).

The same boyfriend who claimed Tony was lucky he didn't "punch his ####### lights out"?

She never should have called it off with Jackie Junior. He was so handsome and smart- he got into Rutgers! And of course h'e's Italian.

Finally got around to watching it Friday night.  Not impressed.  Felt like it dragged on forever.  For the first hour, the wife and I didn't even know what they were getting at.  Probably could have wrapped it up in a 1 hour show with commercials.  Seemed like a LOT of filler.

What’s there to “wrap up”?

Enjoy the journey
