There's a web site just for the attorney lol. He's awesome. I love that line from the show "No, no, you don't want a criminal attorney, you want a CRIMINAL attorney" lol.

I hated that episode! Snoooooooze....but other than that, oh my god, I love this show. I watched a three season marathon of it over the past two weeks.

What a fabulous show, I think the lawyer is my favorite character (besides Walter of course). It's odd how much like Dr. Gordon Freeman he looks like now.

A couple things.. Skylar and her sister bug the shit out of me. Their characters are annoying and their scenes generally boring. Skylar is getting better now that she's helping him and not being such a cliche naggy tv wife, but they really need some interesting non-stereotypical naggy women in the show.

Yeah for sure. I think one of the most unbelievable things in this show is his dedication to his bitchy wife...

Yeah, they could do a lot more with his wife. I'm thinking of Carmella in the Sopranos. In the very first episode she hears a noise outside and you see her open the safe and whip out an AK-47. So they definitely need to give Skyler some more personality. She doesn't have to be the "mob wife" like Carmella but they need to do something with her.

Hell yes this looks like it's going to be a great season. I never did catch up to season 7 of Weeds though. Just not enough time in the day. I used to have a Sensei that always said "if something is important to you then you'll find the time." Well for Breaking Bad I find the time.

Weeds lost me with drug lord boyfriend season, it just didn't interest me enough to make the effort. I haven't gone back to it since.

Same here with weeds. I really enjoyed it for season 1 and 2, but then it just got too crazy for me (which is saying something since I'm still enjoying True Blood).

I just finished up Arrested Development and instantly started the first episode over again. What a hilarious show... I feel like I definitely missed some of the stuff that went on though.

Arrested Development, such an awesome show! I've rewatched that one several times.

i had stopped watching this at the end of season 2 but reading this thread made me start all over again. i had completely forgotten what a great show it is but yeah i'd have to either duct tape skyler's mouth or just shoot her ass. what a fucking nag. excellent show though and no, it doesnt glamourize meth at all.

Skylar is getting a little more tolerable this season....a little. The brother-in-law is the one bugging me the most now.

Oooohhhh this has been a great season so far.

They're slowly giving us our wish for Skylar; some backbone. I loved her quote from tonight:

"I'm just trying to protect our family from the man who's trying to protect our family."

This season is like 31 flavors of awesome.

That and:

"Tell Gus if he needs someone to blame then blame me."
"Oh, he does."

It makes me lose a little more faith in humanity that a show as amazing as this one is on it's 2nd page, half of which is about how much weeds sucked, but the True Blood one is on page 14. This is some bullshit!

There aren't any sexy guys in Breaking Bad to talk about - also, more seriously, it just means there was probably more to complain about. If a show is just awesome, what is there to say...talk about all the awesome things about it?

You have a point. Looking through that thread it's almost all You, Lulu, Jar, and Tax girling it up about hot guys.

Haha - it's probably 1-2 pages tops if you take out our hot guy comments.

Moody, sexually ambiguous man-candy vampires. What's there not to like?

You have to watch through episode 3 Harlowe. When you start on episode 1 you're going to think it's the stupidest show ever, the 2nd you'll still be wondering why you're watching it, by the end of 3 you'll be hooked. At least that's how it worked for me
