Not sure if anyone outside of Bogey and myself watch this show, but rather than constantly hijack the "what did you watch today?" thread, I figured I'd give this show it's own discussion place, and maybe also urge everyone else to watch what I think is one of the, if not the best acted show on television.

Right now there are 3 shows I would suggest everyone watch just because of quality:

Dexter
Walking Dead
BREAKING BAD

Hell, Breaking Bad might even be first. Yeah, I just jumped it due to season 1 and 2 blurays for $20 together...and wow. It is a really powerful show.

AMC's 2 original shows I've seen are so good...I'm actually probably just going to blind-buy MadMen season 1 and plow through it.

But yeah....Breaking Bad is something. It kinda has the Walking Dead pilot thing going for it....not a lot of background music. No soundtrack...I mean, sometimes...but most of the time...none. That really adds to everything. The idea that something can happen at any time, and when music is added to the background you fucking notice.

Seriously though, this has ruined Malcolm in the Middle for me now. Same way Lithgow has ruined anything else he is ever in.

Target has a 2-pack cheap, regular DVD, but seriously...give them some fucking money for this kind of quality.

Yeah I'm a big fan of the show, this wait for the next season since that finale last year has been killing me D:
At first I remember seeing season 1 was just finishing so I decided to have a look to see what it is, see as though it had Bryan Cranston I thought it would be some sort of hilarious comedy, I was wrong but pleasantly surprised, dude can act.

I might check it out some day. I'm in the middle of watching The Wire and I can really only do one drama at a time.

While on the subject, everyone should watch The Wire. Also watch Battlestar Galactica.

Just caught up on the past 2 episodes. I've never gone from really liking a character to just hating everything about them to this much of an extreme. Fuck Hank. His out of control self pity and general assholeishness made me actually feel bad for Marie, a character that I've despised since day one. Just when I start to think my opinions of the two of them are switching places, Marie goes and does something really fucking retarded, and just as self centered to make me hate them both. And as always, fuck Skylar. Although she has been getting better since late season 3, she's still not quite to the point where I'd be sad if someone murdered her to set an example for Walt.

Also, Holy shit, Jesus Christ, what the fuck, Jessie?! Get your shit together man.

I was thinking that too, wondering why he hasn't been around.

I want to watch this show, but I would need to find a way to watch it from the beginning. I saw part of an episode where (can't remember the main character's name, Malcolm In Middle Dad) blows up a car

Don't remember the context of it, or if I even knew the content, but it was amazingly bad ass looking.

Dude, I'm sure there are plenty of ways you could catch up on this show either way you should totally do it.

720p torrent of the first three seasons is locked and loaded on my PS3 external. Should I watch this first, or Treme?

Yeah. I hate a few of the characters now, but it seems to make the show better somehow.

Fuck Skylar

also I'm all caught up to episode 5 of this 4th season and as Marsellus Wallace says "you may feel a slight sting. That's pride fucking with you. Fuck pride. Pride only hurts. It never helps."

Skylar has gotten much more tolerable since about 3/4 through season 3. I actually ALMOST don't dislike her anymore. As for your spoiler...
[Reveal] Spoiler:
Are you referring to Walt telling Hank that there may be someone else higher up than Gale? If so, at first I thought "What the fuck are you doing?! You just got the DEA off your trail!" but then they showed Hank finding the Los Pollos Hermanos menu. My take on that? It's not a matter of pride for Walt. He's not pushing it further to see what he can get away with. He is intentionally sicking Hank on Gus, so that when their deal is over, he and his family are no longer in danger. He is essentially framing Gus as the real Heisenberg, which I guess at this point, he really kind of is.

Jesse is starting to scare me. Especially after the Rage portion of the episode.

That scene when he went back to narcotics anonymous and verbally falcon punched the group leader was enough for me to say that if season 4 is eligible for NEXT years Emmy's, (aired too late to be eligible this year) Aaron Paul is repeating his win. That scene alone.

Dude, they're building A LOT of shit up that I think is going to be the main focus until the series ends next year.

I predict at least one main character dies before the end of this season. It's going to happen.
