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.

FOr those who have seen and know already- can I just say that the end of series four ROCKED!! When he came out and adjusted his tie - WOW - those of you who know will know what I'm talking about and those who haven't seen won't know enough to know that this is not a a spoiler!

Back2Two Fri 01-Feb-13 18:05:37

Can't look now...think last post was a spoiler? Noooooooooo.

incognitoforonenight Fri 01-Feb-13 18:22:12

I wouldnt' dream of putting in a spoiler! The shows much too special to spoil for those who haven't seen it! no names mentioned and no giveaway features mentioned, but if you have seen it you will know what I'm talking about

I watched a few of s1 on netflix and was a bit meh about it tbh, was a bit tiresome. Is it worth trying again?

Pariah According to the creator of the show, if you don't like the pilot then you won't like the show full stop.

But might be worth trying again. I wasn't keen on the pilot but jumped ahead to last episode of season one to see if it was worth bothering with (do this with books too, I have no patience) and then became ridiculously obsessed.

Incognito I don't see how that can be a spoiler, but it's always risky. I am saying nothing till someone decides to set up a separate thread!

Back2Two, I only just saw your post, but wanted to say I love the breakfast motif that runs through the show, and the fact that Jesse's attempt at breakfast was appropriately abysmal. He definitely needs your help.

P.S. What exactly are Funions? Has anyone ever tried them?

PariahHairy Fri 01-Feb-13 20:01:15

Hmm it's not that I hated it or anything, just didn't really grab me, might do the same as you and skip to the last episode, thanks for that.

I felt that whole of Series one was actually a pre-quel to the rest of the series to come - Series 2 being the real start IYSWIM.

We have just started watching this week, we're now on Season 2. It is SO tense I can hardly bare to watch it most of the time. It makes me anxious.

thenightsky Fri 01-Feb-13 22:03:07

Thornintherose Yes I know what you mean about the tension... I find it very stressy to watch! It's the ups and downs rollercoaster ride.

I love the black humour in S1, which there is less of now (but not all gone). And the way you could almost relate... body parts and bath all over the landing, what would you DO??

thenightsky Sun 10-Feb-13 23:16:15

Just started Series 3. Loving it so far.

BOF Sun 10-Feb-13 23:19:43

I absolutely love it- the acting is superb, from everyone. Probably the best tv series I've ever seen.

aristocat Sun 10-Mar-13 09:22:36

I am obsessed with this too

Spending too much time watching it but have a crush on Jesse grin and have just watched the end of S4

MirrorballMoon Tue 14-May-13 21:18:30

Another addict here grin No one else I know in RL watches it so am so glad to have found this thread!
Am bereft now I've watched up to the end of what is available on Apple TV.
Jesse is my favourite, as he's the only one with any scruples! Although love Hank too... Styler started to annoy me when she (the actress) had her lips done at the end of season one grin
Cannot wait til the new (and last!) season starts. Does anyone know when it will be available here? Think it airs July in the US...

MirrorballMoon Wed 15-May-13 07:20:30

Skyler

flanbase Wed 15-May-13 07:22:14

I've watched all of this and what a great programme.

ShirkingViolet Wed 15-May-13 07:23:54

I love it to! Am on series 2, we are watching it all on Netflix smile

ShirkingViolet Wed 15-May-13 07:24:26

*too

Have been trying to find out when the final batch of programs will be on Netflix, but no luck. Starts in August in the US.

Does anyone have any particular ideas about how it should end? I just want a properly satisfying conclusion, although I can't imagine the writers will opt for a wishy-washy open-ended finale, given what's gone before.

Season 5 was just too depressing for my liking, although I can understand why.

thenightsky Thu 16-May-13 21:23:24

I'm about half way through series 4. Not allowed to watch anymore until DS gets home from uni though.

itsallshitandmoreshit Fri 17-May-13 13:43:39

Best thing I have ever seen on television (and I've watched a lot!).
Best writing, casting, acting and directing.

Outstanding. Why hasn't everyone seen it????

wintertimeisfun Sat 18-May-13 17:50:13

i love it too. so much so that i can keep re-watching it and never get board, the loser that i am. i love walt & jesse's relationship as well as jesse's friends ie badger and skinny pete smile
