    My wife and I spent a good chunk of the holidays catching up on this show. She is Colombian, so the whole concept of drug cartels is pretty "meh" for her, but I'm an innocent Canadian and was completely hooked after the first episode. I found bits of season 3 to be a tad slow, however season 4 from start to finish was fantastic. I had thought it was over and done with until I read that a final season of 16 episodes will begin in January. My guess for the main story is a cat and mouse angle between Hank and Walter, with Jessie trying to move away. At any rate I can't imagine it being better than season 4 (how often do you hear about drug dealers wanting to kill you??) but I'm looking forward to being proved wrong.

    I think it can be more fun to just wait for the DVDs and watch them in big chunks back to back to back.... but the anticipation for next season will be huge!

    I'm just posting here to say that I can't stand to watch this show when his wife is on the screen. She is just so ugly in every way. They should have picked an actress like whoever plays the Marie character as his wife because at least when she's bitchy she doesn't become absolutely abhorrent.

    And what kind of stupid name is Skyler? I know someone whose wife tried to name their child the same. It's like the white version of Shawan.

    I'd smash Skylar. She definitely got pretty rotund the most recent season, though.

    Seeing this thread again reminded me of that scene when Ted trips on his rug. I found that entire sequence incredibly comedic.

    They also changed the format from a single 16 episode season to two 8 episode seasons. There will be 8 episodes, a break (hopefully not a full year), and then 8 more for the finale.

    Yup. This should be a good thing. Gives them time to plan it all out, rest, and make sure it's a good finish to the show.

    No, it gives them time to drag it out and jack up the ratings. It's complete bullshit. Either do it and get it over with or have two full fucking seasons.

    (Full disclosure: I am not a fan of this fucking fucked up fuckhole AMC has dug themselves into regarding this show. Thanks, Matthew Weiner!!! Fucktard.)

    Sure, but that does not mean I'm wrong.
