Yeah me too, first episode just grabbed hold of me probably like no other show. It probably took me about two months, maybe less to blast through the first 4 seasons after that. I can't imagine how anyone could not get utterly absorbed in it

It does slow down a bit after the first couple of eps though. Not that I was ever bored with it.

Man, really?

I always felt BB was like crazily tense and fast moving in terms of shit changing in Walt's life. Like I feel like almost every episode it feels like the stakes are higher.

That's the thing about BB, it's just consistently excellent.

A couple of series to click? Seriously? Man I was hooked from the very first episode... It dropped you right in the middle of it, you find out about the cancer and oh shit, they're cooking already?!

I love this showwwww.

Yeah, exactly. I was hooked from the start too. As I said before, from about when Walt says ''fuck you...and fuck your eyebrows!''

And it all progresses so fast. Shit loads happens in the very first episode. Instantly I knew I wanted to know what was going to happen to Walt and Jesse.

What a show.

It has its ups and downs like all series but there's never never really been anything quite like it. The whole thing just explodes before your eyes and passes so quickly it never gives you time to mull things over. In a way I'm glad they split season 5 as it gives you chance to have a proper breather before the serious shit happens :lol:

Be careful of spoilers, I said on Twitter that I'd just finished season 1 and it seemed pretty amazing but Skylar was a cunt. Someone replied with:

SEASON 5 SPOILER

Walt's a cunt, he killed Mike for no reason.

Bearing in mind I had no idea who it was and what he was on about. Fucking bellend ruined the build up to the midseason break of season 5. Wasn't even following him.

A season refers to the number of episodes. AMC tried to get Gilligan to wrap up the show in six episodes instead of sixteen, so be thankful he wangled this arrangement! I believe they're referred to as a 'two part season'. It's kind of shitty that the gap is there, whether they call it two seasons or a two part season.

People say this about Breaking Bad, or The Wire, and these shows are brilliant at what they do - but The Sopranos is pretty much untouchable.

Agree with this, I've watched Breaking Bad and The Wire twice through, and am currently watching Sopranos for a second time. The difference is staggering once you've had time to appreciate all three for what they do, Sopranos really is untouchable.

I think that's a bit harsh. Breaking Bad is excellent at building tension and saying as much as needs to be said. True filler would be constantly throwing spanners into the plot to try and prolong it.

Take the mid season finale - I was genuinely surprised it went straight there.

It all depends on your definition of filler. About a third of breaking bad consists of nothing but close ups of Walts face and Jesse staring at the walls of his apartment.

You should probably read that back and then realise you are doing that internet forum thing where you over exaggerate to the point of ridiculousness in order to try and prove your already substantially wrong point.

I'm not sure deliberately ratcheting up the tension or giving your actors space to act counts as filler. The only real filler I can think of in Breaking Bad was Marie's kleptomania.

By your definition No County For Old Men could have been just as good a film if it was only 30 minutes long!
