I loved the fact that they delved into the Gustavo character. It made the rivalry between Gus and Walt more compelling by learning about his background and motivation.
You'll enjoy the showdown.

Uhhhh.... Negative. Minor Leagues vs Major Leagues. Breaking Bad is history making TV. As close to perfection as it gets IMO.

Still excited about Better Call Saul

They've mentioned that breaking bad characters will be making cameos in the series. Not as much for primary story lines but because it would be part of a realistic scenario for the show as it predates breaking bad.
I however wouldn't be surprised if Saul's original involvement with Gus and Mike doesn't eventually get some play in later seasons- as well as off hand reference to the new blue stuff hitting the market.

Watched the wire recently, and that show is WAY overhyped. For its time, I am sure it was ground breaking, but I don't believe it has held up as well as some remember.

Gotta figure Hank will pop in a bit as he will obviously have busted other clients.

This is where I'm at with the series as well, minus the "riveted" part.

While I think this series is well acted and produced, I do not understand the massive fascination with it, the storyline, the actors, etc. The first two seasons were nothing short of painful to watch and it's not shocking in the least that it was near cancellation. In Season 3, it's became more of a standard "gangster" style of program but Walt's actions aren't anything we haven't seen before in other films and TV shows.

The story and character arcs have been predictable and unsurprising, IMO. While it's well acted, nothing is shocking to me. I almost stopped watching in Season Three but the "Cousins" kept me interested. Season Four has been better but also more predictable.

Add to that, the only "likeable" characters to me are Hank and Walt, jr. The rest are a collection of ****ups, especially Walt, whose story arc and background are somewhat weird to me, given the fact he's a brilliant chemist that chose to live the life of a teacher instead of a scientist. Skylar and her sister are completely unlikeable and Walt's love for the former is unimaginable, especially after her actions. It doesn't ring true, at all, to me.

Also, the entire series seems like a metaphor for shitty health insurance in America. You're in the teacher's union but your insurance won't cover your medical expenses? It's so ****ed up that people need to create and sell meth! You're a government agent whose policy won't cover the best therapists and treatment to your recovery? Take hundreds of thousands of dollars from your BIL who's cooking meth/gambling! It's like the overall theme of the show is that health care in the US sucks and people must do whatever necessary, even commit major crimes, in order to receive necessary health care. Blech.

While I'll watch the final few episodes of Season Four and finish the series, it truly feels like a homework assignment. I'm only watching due to the hype, not any pleasure derived from the program itself.

Just fnished season 4 today. Incredible finale. Probably my favorite season so far.
Spoiler!


Cant believe you feel this way Dane? This show is quality all the way through. It does take a few "leaps of faith" like every TV show does, ill admit (mainly with the Walt/Hank stuff. Hank would have sniffed him out by now.) But damn......just always has me on the edge of my seat. Oddly, im kinda sad to see Gus go. Giancarlo Esposito was incredible in that role.

Same here. Love this character. Hopefully its good. Sometimes when secondary characters get elevated it becomes too much of a good thing.

I don't feel any empathy or sympathy for any of the characters. I don't particularly *like* any of the characters, although Hank isn't unlikeable.

Unlike shows such as Homeland, Sopranos and Mad Men, shows that have featured unlikeable characters that are deep and interesting, thus become likeable, I just don't find myself caring about Walt, Skyler, Marie or Jessie. Gustavo Fring is definitely the most interesting character with the best back story, but I knew he'd meet his fate before Walt or Jessie (and haven't seen it onscreen yet).

It's not that the show is bad, per se (even though Season One was unwatchable for me and Season Two wasn't much better until about episode 8/9) it's just all so...predictable. At least it is, to me.
