Just starting Season Three. I can't believe I haven't been watching this... and then again, it's been really fun to watch in marathon-format. Any fans of this show? The character writing is just incredible.

Re: Wow, Breaking Bad is intense.

The series is my favorite one on the air right now. It only gets better and better, and the latest season (albeit a short one of 8 episodes) starts up in less than a month.

Once you're finished with season four, you might want to look for the webisodes that were produced for the second and third seasons. They're mostly comic vignettes, but they're fun, and all available online as far as I know.

Yep. 16 episodes this time (but split into two seasons of eight, as the previous poster points out).

Re: Wow, Breaking Bad is intense.

Best one hour drama since the Sopranos and features some of the best ensemble acting ever. Brian Cranston and Aaron Paul are both phenomenal.

To the o/p, you're going to LOVE season 3, especially the ending, but season 4 will blow your frigging socks off. Best season finale since Best of Both Worlds Part 1.

Hang onto something.

Re: Wow, Breaking Bad is intense.

It's a great show. I was skeptical at first, based on all the hype surrounding it, but it really is just that good. I think the best part of the series is watching the screws turn ever tighter on Walter White until he finally explodes. It's interesting the way you're initially inclined to empathize with his situation, until he starts treading darker and darker territory and you have to wonder just how far down he's willing to go. (And I don't think it's a spoiler to say we've not hit the depths of his depravity just yet.)

Re: Wow, Breaking Bad is intense.

It's easily my favourite show on TV right now, and one of my all-time favourites. It has a tendency to go a bit over the top sometimes, such as the plane crash, but it has a way of building up and relieving tension like no other show I've ever seen. Wait until you get to the "run" scene, I think I held my breath for the whole two minutes of that sequence.

Re: Wow, Breaking Bad is intense.

Just watched the pilot yesterday. I was impressed. It seems very well conceptualised and realised, and nor does it feel the need to hit you over the head with grimness. Great and subtle acting from the leads. Cranston and Paul have very good chemistry (no pun intended).

Re: Wow, Breaking Bad is intense.

It's one of the best current shows. It's just so incredibly well made, and the characters all have so many layers. I also just recently started watching (early may) and watched through all 4 seasons within a month or so because it's also quite addictive.
It's interesting what it does to the audience, too. As we're initially set to sympathise with Walter White it's also a bit of a test of how far one is willing to go before one stops rationalising what he does. I'm probably a bad person because I still root for him.

That smile Gus gave the camera in the season 4 finale made Heath's Joker seem glum.
