There is only one breaking bad.

Nothing else comes close.

Not Breaking Bad. But rather enjoyable

Well yes, I'd probably agree actually. Breaking Bad is in a league of its own.
We've been looking for a replacement since we finished it last month. Looking forward to the second Fargo this eve. Episode 1 was definitely promising.

I think so

Well Saul's in it. This must be the new life the fixer set up for him. grin

Fargo is very, very good, and to be fair, BB took a while to warm up to the great thing it became. Will reserve judgment! (grin at BumPotato)

I missed the start of Fargo as we are watching Breaking Bad every night! We are addicted (wink) God knows what we'll watch when we've finished, were on season 4 atm.

Lol bum!

Episode 2 was just as good I thought.
Thinking of watching BB all over again.

I loved fargo thought breaking bad was crap though

Youdontneedacriminallawyer Tue 29-Apr-14 20:14:32

whitewitch really?!! Why?

noddyholder Tue 29-Apr-14 20:15:20

No way

whitewitchofnarnia Tue 29-Apr-14 20:16:35

Haha I'm really not sure. Dp watched it all so I did see every episode but the more i watched the more I didn't like it. I think I watch a different program to everyone else!

Loved ep 2. Billy Bob on the toilet!!

Can anyone explain why Lester doesn't go to the hospital about his infected hand?

rootypig Sun 11-May-14 21:37:35

Possibly, since Martin Freeman is annoying enough to drive me as mental as BB did

If Lester went to hospital with his infected hand, he might have to explain how he got a pellet in it from the shotgun that killed Vern - when he was meant to be down in the basement unconscious at the time.

I'm really enjoying the series, but hope it doesn't get too jokey. The original Fargo had some real menace along with the quirky Minnesotan humour.

Hmmm I'm going to watch episode 3 and give up if I don't get into it, dh has already declared it 'shit' hmm I enjoyed the first episode though so I will give it one more chance.

We're enjoying it. Love the cast, esp. the actress who plays Molly and of course the magnificent Billy Bob Thornton. Loved all of his scenes so far.
Martin Freeman is annoying but his character is meant to be.
Haven't seen the original but dp has and he raves on it.

I prefer Fargo so far. I don't really get the love for bb. Dh loved bb too - just me it seems!
