yep, can't wait until next season. I hope the story lines get better though.

I was just scrolling through channels the other day when I saw it on A&E. At first I had the same initial thought you did Stealth, but it actually pulled me in.

I caught the episode where he was in front of the camera and "saved" the guy from the billboard for publicity. Classic. I knew it was going to be interesting if that was the first scene that I got to watch. I need to start over from scratch though.

The last episode was a bore and not a true season finale, IMHO. I REALLY enjoy the show so it was a major let-down to have it just peter out to end the season.

I think the finale was incredibly interesting and sets up the show for greatness.

Go back and watch Season 1 of Breaking Bad. It's incredible, great, and well done, but Season 1 is easily the worst season of Breaking Bad.

When you're watching shows week by week, there is a lot more analysis and thought given to each episode as a viewer. "Oh, that was boring." "Too slow." Etc. I watched breaking bad over the course of 3 weeks and it never seemed boring because I could always go to the next one.

When a show has 5-6 seasons, there are going to be some slower shows, but all of it will make sense when you look back as a whole.

Remember the fly episode of Breaking Bad? I know it was symbolic or whatever but fuck, it was a snoozer!

I actually like that episode.

They did it to bring down production cost for that season, but it was still meaningful.

I don't know, I found a few episodes of Breaking Bad in season 2 (thats only as far as I've gotten yet) to be pretty dry after having such high expectations from the episodes of season 1. Some scenes just seemed so dragged out and overdramatized it kind of killed it for me, but then the next episode wouldn't be so bad.

Actually pretty much all BCS stories either a) logically end, or b) plant roots for future developments.

Overall, excellent series... so far.

The fly episode is one of the few I caught, but I thought it was hilarious! It was Walter's defining moment for me, and why a lot of people call me Walter. . .

That was the overdramatized episode I was referring to. I was pretty disappointed after I watched that episode. So far, that's been the only one I've been actually partial to, the rest have been pretty damn good.
