OMG. I rarely watch scripted television. It is so damn boring I can't hardly stand it. The few exceptions have been Lost and The Killing.
I tuned in to S1 of BB here and their season 1 but something didn't grab me enough to watch it all the way through. I thought I'd tune in to S5 just to see what all the fuss was about during BB's final season, and I was suckered in. I watched the entire show from S1 through the last show available on Netflix straight through.
There is something watching it all the way through rather than week-by-week. I don't think I could have endured 5 years of stopping and starting with only one show a week. That would also drive me bananas.
I've never purchased a box set of anything, but I plan on buying the BB dvd box set when it's out. It really is a phenomenal program, and I'm so glad I saw the light!
Tonight's episode was crazy! I had to leave the room at the end and couldn't watch. The show repeated a few hours later and I watched so I'm clued in now.
Man. THAT was drama.
I am on team Walt and team Hank and team Jesse. I like them all and want them all to live. Poor Gomie. The actor who plays him was on Talking Bad, and he observed that Gomie was the only one who didn't break bad in the show. That was a great observation!
Can't wait for next week. Vince set it up well in his preview on Talking Bad.
