Any Breaking Bad or Weeds Fans?

41 replies • Last post

Just watching the third episode of the new season of Weeds, and last night was the season premiere of my favorite show: Breaking Bad! All hail King Heisenberg! lol!

Not sure if there are any watchers of either show here, but I thought I would post just in case.

BB is very disappointing to me, though, because they were granted 16 more episodes. They first said they would do eight episodes, then wait four months, then do the final eight. The other day I read they are doing eight then waiting until NEXT SUMMER for the final eight! Sad VERY disappointing to have to wait that long for a finale when we know it is coming.

I had two huge surprises already just watching that first episode. GREAT show! Just SO well done!

I tried Breaking Bad as you may remember. Not my cup of tea. I may watch Weeds though when I find the time.

BB is my ATF, next to The Wire, of course. Weeds was my number one for maybe the first three seasons. They really should have stopped a few seasons ago, but I am in for the long haul now, so I have to keep watching, lol.

Breaking Bad is good, although I have to admit I only got four episodes in and moved on to something else. It is a show that I think I would need to watch an episode every day to make it worth my while.

Yes, it is like The Wire where two to three episodes in one sitting is advised. The first few seasons are on Netflix free to Stream (unlike ANY HBO shows) which is very nice. It is also on Project Free TV. It would REALLY be worth your while to catch up on that show. Once you get further into it, you wouldn't be able to wait for the next episodes. I am so psyched, lol!

As you know, I am currently watching Weeds. It has been so entertaining. Lots of things I don't like, but lots of funny stuff too. There's a red one, and a blue one............cracks me up how the beginning is.

Yes, Little Boxes is a very famous song. I like how they have different artists sing it for different episodes. I always had to look up on Wiki to see who was singing for that week. The original was written and recorded by political activist Malvina Reynolds. But even before Weeds, MANY artists recorded this song.

I loved that part of the show where different people sang the songs. I tried to guess who it was each episode. I got the colors of the houses wrong though.

I thoroughly enjoyed this series. I couldn't wait to watch the next episode. I can't imagine taking 8 seasons to watch Weeds when I just watched it in a couple of weeks. It was fun to see how much Shane grew from one season to the next.

I own four or five season. The boys bought me some for Christmas when this was still my favorite show. I will miss it, but it was definitely time for it to be over by Season 8 and possibly before.

I think because I watched it over a short period, I did not get tired of it. But you are right that it needed to end, where else could the show go?

Yes, I think Jenji Kohan just wanted to hang on too long, which is why I will miss Breaking Bad SO much, but it is going out while still on top, just like The Wire did.

Is anyone out there watching Homeland? VERY good show in the second season. Awesome acting.

The countdown is on, Breaking Bad fans! The beginning of the end starts August 11, 2013! Looks like it is going to be an intense, crazy ride. Any predictions?

Is ANYONE here watching the final eight episodes of Breaking Bad? Last night's episode was completely INSANE!

Yes, The Walking Dead is a great show, but BB is the ONLY TV show where I can physically feel my heart racing through the entire episode, oftentimes having to remind myself to BREATHE. With only three episodes left, I am really sad to see it end, but Vince Gillian and Co. are definitely going out ON TOP.

Any other FANS out there? I don't know

I just picked up Breaking Bad again a few days ago. I watch it before I get to bed on my iPad, and have to say I definitely am digging it. I am guessing I will catch up and finish the series by the end of October.

You are going to be so glad you did! Do you watch on Netflix?

I am going to have to eventually buy the boxed sets, because there are so many extras I have already heard about that I will have to see (can't talk about them here without spoilers).

I am SO happy the show (and Anna Gunn) finally both received very deserving Emmy's. It is still my second ATF show.

Check out Bryan Cranston reading a most unusual fan letter (NO Spoilers) (With Aaron Paul and Conan) LMAO!

Yeah, I'm all in on Netflix. I just started season 2 yesterday and am hoping for some bad weather so I have an excuse to stay inside and catch up on some episodes! Smile

Walter White is dead and so is his legacy. And of course, he all did this (for his family) because he liked it !*! If the rumors are true I am really looking forward to watch the upcoming series focusing the life of Saul Goodman, the Godfather of shysters.

Nick you should post SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER before posting the ending of the series, lol! Some people are not finished. I did love the series finale. I think it is one of the best finales of all time!

I hope the spin spin off goes as planned and does not get canceled! LOVE Saul/Bob Odenkirk! I hope they bring Bill Burr (Kuby) and Lavell Crawford (Huell) to the new show, too. From what I understand it will be a prequel so both of his guys could have been working for him back then. All three GREAT comedians outside of Breaking Bad!

Hi hope 777, I was still in blue mood when posting an essential information about Walter White. Spoiler alert, sorry for that. Nevertheless, anyone watching the series knows that the High School teacher has incurable cancer and so he is going to die sooner or later..lol.
I would be very thankful if this constellation of actors, like you mentinoned above, actually are brought in this prequel, too. Lavell Crawford (Huell) is so funny. lol. The biggest thief I've ever seen.

Hi Nick. I just had to give you a hard time and post a warning, because I know others are catching up, and i have done the same myself before. During our last family get together my SIL and I were discussing the show and my poor nephew still has several episodes to watch, so he would walk away and plug his ears when we brought up the show, lol. I asked him if he had to walk around closing his eyes and plugging his ears every day, since it was talked about everywhere: TV, radio, online, etc. and he said basically, yes, lol.

Check out this post if you want to see Crawford and Burr at their best!

Also loved all the jokes that Huell was still waiting in that safe house sitting on the couch and wondering what was going on for time eternal. haha!

You have to post more than a few words to get a chip for posting, plus only up to 10 in one day. Also, CL-Ed WILL catch up to you with your five CL chips if he hasn't already. Just takes a little bit, sometimes, so no worries.

If you can get project free TV you can watch episodes of Breaking Bad for free. It is also on Netflix free to stream if you subscribe to Netflix. I am sure Amazon would have some of the episodes, too. Definitely worth watching! Smile

Hello hope777,
thank you for your warning but I did not realize the spoiling potential of my post when writing it. I thought that contents of a TV show which ended several weeks ago won't bother anyone who watched it. However, you are right that there is always someone who has not. Every day we all learn something new. Thanks for the links including Crawford and Burr at their best.
