It's the final episode on Spike tonight. They've done the five series every week night.

I know I'm way behind everyone else but I'm so excited.

I'm recording it but I'm going to watch it live at about 11pm just in case anything goes wrong and I get a big FAILED sign on the planner tomorrow.

I don't think I could handle that.

ERMAGHERD! It's amazing! Netflix has it if it all goes wrong.

You will not be disappointed. Best tv series ever imho.

Do you debrief after every episode by reading Breaking Bad Wiki? and talking about it to anyone who will listen

undermythumb Thu 09-Jul-15 21:21:11

It's wonderful, Hope you love it too. I felt such a sense of loss when the show finished.

I've watched almost every one but was doing it lazily.

It was five episodes a week and I had it linked but the planner failed a couple of times and then failed to pick up after the end of series four shock so I missed the first four episodes of series five before I realised sad

I saw the main shockers but missed the train one.

Thank heavens for the Wiki.

But I can't wait. I actually woke up at 6.30am today and the first thought on my mind, apart from: 'I need a wee', was: 'It's the last one of Breaking Bad tonight.'

Yes, yes, yes ExcuseMyEyebrows

I'd often rush from the end of episodes to check the Wiki in case I'd missed anything.

It's amazing. Come back and tell us what you think. I may start watching from the start again!

limitedperiodonly Thu 09-Jul-15 21:37:50

Thanks Fanny. I can't work out Netflix. I know I should or I deserved to be drummed out of Telly Addicts.

Are you still a bit stunned limited?

Or downloading the last song?

I am very jealous of you watching it for the first time. I might have to re-watch the whole thing for the third time myself blush

Sorry not to get back. It was brilliant, wasn't it?

I went straight on the wiki and realised I missed the significance of the song and lots of other things, but I've saved it and am going to watch it again.

The attention to detail was great. Also I liked that your sympathies change a you get to know people.

Apart from Walt Jr who I liked all the way through. And of course, Jesse.

I'd been watching it on Spike but borrowed my sisters Netflix to watch the final few as I couldn't wait! I feel lost now I've finished it!

Ledare Sat 11-Jul-15 13:37:05

I caught Walt and Skylar's goodbye scene when DH turned the channel over. Apparently everyone was sobbing for real, including the crew. Which reminds me, I have all the box set extras to watch!

limitedperiodonly Sat 11-Jul-15 13:47:30

Yes, I read that the cameraman had to step away because he was misting up the lens.

I started out despising Hank but then he grew on me and then he didn't and then he did.

I liked Walter even when he was being at his most ruthless because I admired his cleverness. His confession DVD was breathtakingly brilliant.

I really liked Mike and could kind of see Gus's point of view sometimes.

Ledare Sat 11-Jul-15 16:56:00

Same here. I loved Walt's actual confession in the scene with Skylar, when he says he liked it, was good at it and that it made him feel alive,

And then the "W" left on the equipment as what happens, happens in the setting he loved best...

And the whole way through you've got Jesse (bored in the lab that time - hilarious) and his mates and Saul to make you laugh grin

limitedperiodonly Sat 11-Jul-15 18:43:41

I loved the bit where Jesse was bored too.

Doing that job would be really boring even if you were making millions.

There's a thread running about London Underground tube drivers and their pay atm and it occurred to me that that job is even more mind-numbing - underground for eight hours and nothing to distract you.

I don't notice much but I noticed that Saul wears the blue ribbon for the plane crash to the end. I wonder why?

Ledare Sat 11-Jul-15 19:01:34

He wears it longer than most people to drum up business for his lawsuit against the airline but if he wears it when he's on the run and not going to continue to be a lawyer that's strange.

I didn't think Better Call Saul was a patch on BB sad

mrsleomcgary Sat 11-Jul-15 23:40:09

How are you coping now it's done? I felt bereved for week afer finished the series.

limitedperiodonly Sat 11-Jul-15 23:44:17

It's not really done for me yet because I'm going to re-watch the final episode.

Blondeshavemorefun Tue 14-Jul-15 17:27:24

Shame on you limited !!!! I watched this when shown first time

Was fab re watching again on spike - don't know how I missed this thread !!!!!

Was omg at ending

I always thought Walt would die as said cancer was terminal - so knew eventually he would die. But wasn't sure how iyswim - guess he got shot and died

The W handprint was fab

Always read the wiki after even sometimes before each episode

Things like the pink teddy you can miss if didn't know about it

I want to know what happens to Jessie

And wow at making 81 million in just over a year !!!!!!!

limitedperiodonly Tue 14-Jul-15 17:52:00

Sorry Blondes. I have so much TV to watch on planner. Isn't there some kind of zombie thing on Watch starting next Tuesday?

I can't deal with it because I have no space and it looks a bit shit.

Yes to the gazillions that they made. I want to think that Jesse had a cushion of about a million dollars or two.

Blondeshavemorefun Tue 14-Jul-15 21:28:07

Didn't he give all his millions to the parents of the dead bike boy and someone else?

Wasn't the lawyer bloke nicked as he was putting into safety deposit boxes and all money went to government

Zombies / next week ??? Blondes loves zombies smile

My DM also loved BB & to get her fix she watched better call Saul after -I think she said there is only 10 episodes but was really good!
There are also cameos of characters from BB!smile

limitedperiodonly Sat 25-Jul-15 21:52:25

I deliberately didn't watch the zombie thing Blondes because it looked bad. That was the one on Pick on Tuesday, wasn't it?

Was it good?

Blondeshavemorefun Sun 26-Jul-15 09:10:22

I couldn't find it sad

limitedperiodonly Sun 26-Jul-15 10:47:32

Shame. I saw the trailer and thought of you. But it did look a weeny bit far-fetched, even for something about zomblies.

I have far too much on my planner to get into something else. I'm currently rewatching The Walking Dead while waiting for the new series.

We're up to season 3. We know The Governor's true colours. Michonne has always known. Andrea remains stupid because it's nice shagging the main man hmm

Rick has gone looby-lou and is answering ghostly phone calls. I missed so much first time round. I always wondered where he got the idea for his questions for new people: 'How many walkers have you killed? How many people have you killed etc.'

He got it from one of these hallucinated phone calls.
