    I don't want to give anything away. I like the interaction that Hank and Walt have.

    EDIT: It just got more awesome.

    Maybe the best show I have ever seen and it did not disappoint tonight. I love the show and that it is filmed in the burque is even more special for myself. I lived out there last year and remember eating at the Los Pollos Hermanos. In Albuquerque it is called Twisters and they are a local chain that serves some kick ass food just like the rest of the city.

    Could be the greatest show of all time.

    Last scene of last night was absurdly intense. Loved Walt's "tread lightly" response.

    Lets not get nuts now.

    While a very very good show, most of BB's appeal to me lies in its epic plot twists, and overall is too reliant on sheer coincidence to make things work. The replay value therefore is very marginal in comparison to truly awesome works such as The Sopranos and The Wire.

    Dean whatshisname is a heck of an actor; his look; his behavior had a real depth in that scene. How did he get such a compelling "crazy eye"? holee smokes

    Just got into this show when they started reruns recently on IFC, then went and got rest on Netflix.

    Glad I got into this, what a great show.

    It seems shows like BB learned from the Sopranos major mistakes, like going show to show with absolutely nothing ocurring and then simply letting the show stay on the air for too many seasons. IMO, Bryan Cranston is one of the better actors out there, he has made the show what it is today.

    +1

    Is it on Netflix or can you watch the older seasons on HBO On-Demand / archives?

    You really need to see it from the beginning or else it will make little sense and you won't pick up the little things in the show.l

    And still with those "mistakes" the Sopranos is a vastly better series.

    Maybe, I wonder if BB on HBO would of let them do a little more as well.

    That would be interesting. As far as shows on network tv BB takes the cake I think.

    BB overall has better actors imo. Cranston is amazing and so is Paul. Plus an incredible supporting cast. The Sopranos wasnt half the show it was early on, while BB got better every season, and will end before 8t gets old.

    I disagree with the supporting cast. Not to mention that there were easily over 50 characters in the Sopranos, whereas Breaking Bad focuses around a very small amount of characters.

    But its cool though, there both great for different reasons. I just prefer the Sopranos, and think it was far more consistent, character driven, humorous, and realistic.
