Just wondering if anyone else watches because I'm getting sick of raving about it to people who all go "what? NEver heard of it", when it is actually one of the best programmes EVER. Yes, EVER.

'yo' i share the lurve!
going to source series 4 this weekend...
It's filling the hole that Homeland and Dexter left...

I love it too, currently having withdrawal symptoms after having watched season 1-4 since Xmas, 3 episodes a night - so addictive!

I've just noticed it on Netflix after people talking about it on here, hope its from series 1

MorrisZapp Sun 27-Jan-13 22:04:07

Best series of all time.

thenightsky Sun 27-Jan-13 22:09:03

Oh I love this... got boxed set 1 - 4 for Xmas and watched 1 and 2 so far. I want to get stuck into series 3, but I find it incredibly exhausting to watch grin

Ooh .. We have watched this all along. Can't wait for the last bit .. Roll on spring!

We should have a series of threads for people who want to talk about BB in much more detail, series appropriate and with plot spoiler warnings.

I'm on series two, would love to be able to discuss what I've seen so far, but am terrified of forums in case I glimpse further developments.

Anybody up for a season one thread? Ie for people who have seen the whole season?

thenightsky Mon 28-Jan-13 14:12:33

YY to a Season one group on here! I have actually just finished Series 2 as well, but also terrified of spoiling anything for others by discussing it.

Cooroo Mon 28-Jan-13 16:33:36

Halfway through series 4... has series 5 still not been finished?? I thought it was all on Netflix. And yes whatkungfuthat it is from series 1.

LOL at incognito - I'm the same. Keep having to tell people how good it is.

I'm so worried I'll accidentally get a spoiler for the final season. I'm not sure what the delay in air dates between US and here will be, but I'll basically have to avoid the Internet for the duration (which will probably do me a lot of good).

I just hope it ends in the manner we've come to expect. I know Mr Gilligan won't let us viewers down!

StrangerintheNight Mon 28-Jan-13 20:08:39

It would be good to get a different viewpoint from a MN discussion group as most of the Internet boards I've read to feed my mild obsession are male dominated and have a huge downer on poor old Skyler no matter what she does.

Please can all of you promise to catch up before the final season airs so we can obsess about it on here??

YAY! i LOVE bb so much so that i did a thread on here about it too the other week when i first discovered it with dh (his idea, so was 24, i'd never have watched either if he hadn't suggested them). stranger i don't like skyler, i find her both annoying and boring.. the night we just finished season 2 and have just started season 3. dh goes to bed earlier than me and got fed up with me watching another 1 (or 2) episodes as it meant i was ahead of him (even though i would re-watch them again with him) so last night i instead started (on netflix) to watch season 1 again. it is so bloody funny, the scenes with walt and jesse are my favourite, superb stuff :-) infact some days it keeps popping into my mind (i need to get out more) and once 5pm hits both dh and i are excited to see the latest evenings offerings. funny but dd goes to bed alot earlier since we discovered this which is good as she used to go to bed far too late some nights (9pm........ish) :-D

TheBlackBagBorderBinLiner Tue 29-Jan-13 21:47:02

Working through series 2 as fast as DH will let me.

thenightsky Tue 29-Jan-13 23:38:15

Does nobody else find the ups and downs of Walt's 'career' exhausting to watch? I can only watch 3 episodes back to back before I'm wrung out grin

bringnbuy Wed 30-Jan-13 08:58:57

i always get frustrated by his non relationship with jesse. never seems to go smoothly between the two. i love the chemistry between them (ha ha) but sadly they are rarely on the screen together, i want them to 'cook' together again, always funny moments as jesse always gets something wrong

StrangerintheNight Wed 30-Jan-13 23:39:59

Just finished watching latest episode of Lewis - I know, I know, it's my guilty pleasure and about the only programme my DH and I watch together. The plots are usually pretty lame, but they embarrassingly jumped on the breaking bad bandwagon in having a formerly respectable middle-aged man start dealing in crystal-meth. Oh dear.

It's a ridiculous premise (one of the reasons I put off watching BB for ages) but reminded me that you only care about BB because the characters are so well drawn.

Ha ha, bringnbuy. I'm never going to find anyone to stick up for Skyler am I? She's certainly not my favourite character but I can't put my finger on why she's so unsympathetic.

thenightsky Fri 01-Feb-13 10:53:31

Tempted to have a series 3 fest this weekend if the weather is shite grin

wintertimeisfun Fri 01-Feb-13 11:55:07

thenight dh and i are currently ploughing through season 3. last night we saw a really FANTASTIC episode so much so i can't wait for tonight to watch the next. there was a REALLY funny scene to do with jesse and a yellow suit :-D

greenpostit Fri 01-Feb-13 12:05:40

I've watched series 1-4. It gets better and better!

whatkungfuthat Fri 01-Feb-13 12:06:39

Thanks Cooroo, I've finally watched the pilot and a bit of the next one but I have stopped as I want DP to watch it too. Its totally not what I expected but what I have watched has been brilliant and I can't wait to see the rest. I am desperately trying not to see any clues or spoilers about it though grin

Cooroo Fri 01-Feb-13 15:46:08

Finished season 4 last night. Phew. Yes bringnbuy it is so frustrating that Jesse and Walt fail to communicate, when they so obviously care for each other on some level. Walt made an interesting slip when out of it on painkillers. And I thought they might hug near then end of Face Off... and then there was the last shot! Aaagh.

Face Off - I love the episode titles, they can be very clever.

Cooroo Fri 01-Feb-13 15:47:16

Skyler - she was pretty impressive in s4, one episode in particular.

sonsmum Fri 01-Feb-13 16:55:15

watching the last 2 episodes of series 4 tonight. I have been very naughty and did go on wiki and read to see what happens. Looks like the series ends appropriately. Not sure what we will do until June as series 5 is not for sale until then in the UK. The cast are all good actors, (even skylar!) but i think Hank is really impressive, with his mannerisms and convincing eagerness to catch heisenberg etc

Back2Two Fri 01-Feb-13 17:05:01

grin at the nightsky

Yo yo yo. I'm loving it too.
Half way through series 4. I might be a bit in love Jesse I think, although it would be more appropriate for me to bustle in, clean up his house and cook him a good breakfast in a maternal stylee show of love.

Bloke who plays Hank is class. Walt does irritate me a bit from time to time cos he can be a real cock.

We have to alternate with something a bit more light hearted (modern family) from time to time. I quite like it when dh starts impersonating Jesse tho, not so much when it'S Skinny Pete wink
