I'm in the middle of Season 4 of Breaking Bad right now... Episode 8.

So many shocker moments... Even "cringe" moments in this series... Great show.

I vacillate between The Wire and The Sopranos, so I'd only argue with the "not close" part.

A couple of things that are a bit unfortunate is that Gus was offed too soon - he was an amazing character played by the awesome Giancarlo Esposito - if you get a chance to see 1994's Fresh where he plays another albeit totally different drug-lord Esteban, you can see the fantastic range he has as an actor. The other thing is the splitting up of season five really disturbed the pace of the show.

He was by far the greatest villain EVER. I like how they killed him

There are a few at the top. I think it's just personal preference. For me, the flat out most entertaining show of all time is Breaking Bad. Just more fun to watch than The Wire or The Sopranos. But it's arguable forever.

Sopranos was great too. Although, the year of the Big Gay Vito episodes sort of knock it down slightly below The Wire in my book. That story arc took way too long. I thought the series finished really strongly though. Tony in hotel purgatory after getting shot where Steve Buscemi's apparition is trying to talk him into the family reunion/hell was truly brilliant television. The ending was brilliant too, although a lot of casual fans of the show didn't get it.

Read somewhere that HBO demanded extra episodes to stretch out the final season so David Chase used a story line that he abandoned years before. Though the Johnny Cakes episodes did throw me at first, I think they could have been fleshed out more if not rushed to production. But Sopranos still the best show in the past 20 years.

Breaking Bad is an amazing show, probably the best I have ever seen based on writing. Not in the genre but outstanding, Mad Men. It will be sad when they are done.

Anybody know where a person can watch S5 E9 if they've cut the cable/satellite cord? Looks like Netflix is only offering it in the UK with no date for the US release.

Lucky gits.

You can purchase individual episodes on demand (or the entire season) from Amazon and itunes. They are usually released within 24 hours of the original airing. $2 SD, $3 HD. Or you can go the torrent route...

Wow, just wow to last nights episode.

Didn't see the confrontation with Hank coming so soon. What a cliffhanger ending!

Interesting point I hadn't thought of...
Quote:
...Skyler is right: She does need a lawyer. Not to protect Walt, but to protect herself. Consider this email I got from reader Drew Ryce, an attorney, about Hankís prospects for nailing Walt on money laundering and tax evasion:
Plenty of physical evidence, tens, perhaps hundreds, of millions of dollars locked up in storage rooms. Except look at Walter's defense. Walter didn't launder anything. His wife did the laundering. Perhaps on behalf of Gustavo and/or the cartel. Think about it. She rents the storage areas. Not Walter. She fiddles the books. Not Walter. She runs the car wash. She ran a complex tax evasion scheme with Ted's company (which clearly had nothing to do with Walter).
Itís too late for Skyler to come clean. I didnít know it till now, but she did.

I don't understand how anyone could prefer either of those shows to Breaking Bad, but to each their own.

Her cooking the books for Ted alone ties all the other things to her.
