Just finished season 4 and it was gaining a bit of traction as being watchable to the point I would suggest it to others all that completely went with how Gus left the nursing home room.

That little twist/surprise was stupid.


Why would you let one thing you didn't like erase all the things you did like? If you enjoyed, you enjoyed. Isn't that worth something?

You're not clued in to all that right away.

It's an amusing inversion of the 'meek guy finds himself and becomes a hero' theme. There's a lot of humor involved, but usually quite dark. IMO without the humor it wouldn't be really watchable.

I watched all of it from the beginning to the end.

Sometimes I missed episodes, but I guess what drew me the most was that DARK humor you mentioned.

But, much of the series was real life.

On a whim I picked up a used DVD set off of eBay. Mrs. Goat and I have watched it twice now. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

I think my 2 favorite lines are,

I just got done watching it for the 3rd time. I recorded the episodes from AMC over the last couple of Sundays. Even though I knew what was going to happen, it still was watchable. I don't understand any real criticism of the show, one of the best shows ever, IMO.

I have never watched a minute of it. Everyone has told me it's great and that I need to watch it.
Just doesn't interest me for some reason.


I'd rather be hated for who I am than loved for who I'm not.

I thought the same thing too for the longest time. Then I watched the pilot and I was hooked. It was a hell of a ride through to the end. I look forward to watching it again sometime.

The subject matter on all fronts really turned me off, so I avoided it for several years. But I finally gave in and have watched it through several times now. I think It's one of the best things I've ever seen.

Heck I even decorated a USPSA stage around it a few years ago. Wink

^ That was my problem, too. Everything about Meth is gross and not interesting, to me. I deliberately avoided the show for a few years because of it. But then I watched it...

And we finished it.
It had some good spots but not enough for me to say I liked it or suggest anyone watch it. I hated pretty much every character. Jessie was Ok but he was so wishy washy with no consistency. Badger and Skinny or whatever were terribly annoying.
Todd, what was with that guy. I kept calling him Mayberry his character just did not fit he shot the kid with no emotion just not fitting for his demeanor. They even called him Opie in the last episode so clearly they wanted him to be seen that way.

What the crap was with Marie and all the purple, Hank and his minerals??

The plane crash was ridiculously stupid.

About the only thing I liked that I thought was pretty good was Walt's confession.
I think I would have enjoyed the show's ending much better if they would have gone that way and Hank get investigated and maybe charges over how it ended for Hank.

Ohh well, you win some and you loose some now what to watch next??

One of the better series out there. You'll get tired of the kid saying, "Mr White" if you binge watch ...

The ending is super-powerful!
