    It's the blue crystal meth of TV.

    Hm, well I have season one on blu-ray but haven't started it yet for a few reasons.

    1) the blu-ray player is out of commission
    b) it's also stationed in the big TV room, which is a problem for my son who wants to watch everything and has no concept of appropriate.
    iii) no time to sit and actually watch anything.

    This is definitely THE reason to get that thing fixed or replaced.

    Just tell him to go the fuck to sleep. (That's actually a hillarious and ingenious book.)

    One MAKES time for Breaking Bad.

    Next season's it, though it looks like there will be sixteen episodes. Yes, I'm sad too.

    ^ Good. Nothing I hate more than shows that run past their sell by date

    Boy, you're kind of a downer, aren't you? The show has been extremely inventive and never stands still. Who says they don't have another two or three seasons' worth of good ideas?

    Better to stop when you're on top than stretch it out. I loved The Sopranos, but even I have to admit it was getting bad towards the end. Breaking Bad is an awesome show, but I felt that the latest season dragged in certain spots (still awesome though). Besides, how much further can they take this concept? It has to end (badly) at some point for Walt. I just wonder what will get him in the end: Hank, cancer, or some random thug? And what will become of Jesse??

    I certainly agree that things will end badly for Walter, and that this show is certainly not an eleven-season show. Still, I was wondering where it might go at the end of season two, and I've been pleasantly surprised. It wouldn't have shocked me if Gilligan had another two seasons' worth of ideas prior to the plug getting pulled after last season.

    I'm finicky, and to say this show is dragging is nuts.

    Gus getting blown up? That was a superb ending. Yes, some moments were a bit ponderous but that doesnt mean there are no legs left.

    did anyone hear today's "Science Friday" on NPR? It was about Breaking Bad and the role organic chemistry plays in the show as they were interviewing one of the technical advisers. It was funny that she pointed out that they intentionally don't put all the "correct" pieces together in the episodes so as not to promote any upstart meth lab creators out there! It was interesting and amusing as well.

    there's another show on NPR right now ("Fresh Air") about the 1st season.

    Walt: "we need a distributor. do you know anyone like that?"
    Jesse: "ya, I used to... until you KILLED him!"

    :lol:
