    If you wrap it up in parts, it kind of takes the luster off the finale.

    Whatever became of Silvio in the Sopranos, they did not really wrap that up.

    Norm McDonald is really going down the wormhole on the "Walt Dying in N.H." theory. Check out his Twitter timeline, if such things interest you.

    Decided to check out what the fuss was all about, and just finished a 2 month binge.

    That. Was. Awesome.

    One of the rare tv series which got better season after season. Some great characters with real evolutions (Walt, Jesse, Skyler, Hank...) and some great acting.

    I'd have a hard time ranking a top 3 between Sopranos, The Wire and Breaking Bad.

    He went back to being the lame overrated guitarist in the lame overrated E street band.

    Agree, watta great effin show. Bryan Cranston the best. A spin off with Saul is in the works, however it takes place before he meets Walter.

    6 Feet Under made it over the Atlantic and had a lot of success here. It was on cable channels whereas BB hasn't made it there yet. I agree, very watchable series and great acting as well.

    Finally gave in and started watching this show a few months ago. All the hype had me wondering what I was missing. I am about midway through Season 4. First 2 seasons were meh. Season 3 was good and Season 4 has been the best IMO thus far. Hopefully it ends on a high note.

    I'm 10 episodes in. Really good but not mind-blowing IMO

    I think the allure to that show was the week between episodes when I reflected upon past episode and the characters, considering possibilities for next week.
    IMO blowing through episodes on Netflix does it somewhat of an injustice and detracts from how well-developed the characters were.

    I watched the first two seasons marathon style and the rest of it week to week. I prefer marathon style, but there are merits and drawbacks to both.

    Buzz - As for BB, my favorite season was the first. If you're not all in after season 1, I don't think it will live up to your expectations, imo.

    I am not really blowing through it. The most episodes I have watched in a single day was 2 and I rarely watch it on back-to-back days. There are some really good characters but the way people talked about the show I was expecting it to easily become a Top 5 for me. Season 3 and 4 have been pretty good. IMO the show has gotten better as it has progressed which is rare for me b.c usually I feel the first couple of seasons of most shows are the best.

    I am not trying to knock it but I think whenever you hear about how great something is for so long there is a chance that it won't live up to the expectations.

    I finally decided to rent the first season - my wife is normally not a fan of the stuff I like in general, so I told her to just watch the first couple of episodes.

    She was hooked.

    We just plowed through all of the seasons in the last couple of months and watch the finale last night. I'd been avoiding this thread and all spoilers on the internet, pretty hard to do since it's so popular.
    Just goddamn awesome.

    I loved Saul's character - I hadn't seen BB previously, but his character on Fargo was just flat out awesome as well.
    Highly recommend Fargo as well to those who hadn't seen it yet - tremendous.

    Can't wait until Better Call Saul comes on in February -

    Bob Odenkirk must be an Honorary Hampur Celebrity. His memes are legendary. He's a Weasel's Weasel.


    Do we have room in the HHOF?
