The "blue meth" prop is actually made by a local candy store in Albuquerque. There is a rumor going around that a large purchase of the blue candy was made by the producers after the show rapped up production on the final episodes. Gotta wonder if it relates to a continuation of the show in some form after this season.

Never really paid attention to the show despite the enormous positive press it always gets. Meth dealers aren't really my crowd.

Two weeks ago I'm feeling sick and bored so I tried it on Netflix. The show is like meth itself. Wasted the past two weekends watching all 5.5 seasons.

Finally understand why everyone is calling this the best show on television. I believe it.

Great soundtrack too.

That was my first reaction too and then I did the same as you and watched all episodes. I even paid for the latest season. The show is so incredibly well written

I've never done meth and yet feel like a grizzled vet thanks to this show.

I normally like watching shows that depict bad guys in a different way.
That's why i love Breaking Bad, SOA. It's interesting to see the other side of the criminal or bad person. It humanizes them and allows you to see something other than "Typical bad guy."

I'm not gonna cheer for a bad person in real life. But in a different cinematic type of universe it's fun to see.

Best show on TV. Ever. Im currently re-watching all of it because the wife never watched it. It's even better the second time around. Hoping to catch up in time, but that's doubtful. Oh well, I'll still watch.

My coworkers raved about Breaking Bad for a few years so I think the show was way over hyped by the time I watched it because I've found it to be good not great.

But nonetheless I've watched every episode and I don't want to miss out the new episodes. That way I will actually be able to talk to people, since I assume the finale will be all the buzz.

Walter White lives just a couple streets down from me. It was pretty cool to see the "Better Call Saul" billboard and to see them filming around town.

A lot of people seem to have this trepidation about getting into the show. A couple of friends specifically won't watch it because they have too much personal experience with meth heads. All I tell them is, don't delude yourself into thinking you are even close to as smart as the writers of the show and the characters they've created. And that's not an insult, that's just how intelligently written the show is, and it's quite rare.

That's not even the strongest point of the show, IMO. From about season 3 on, the aesthetic of the show (direction, cinematography, editing, music, etc.) has been absolutely stellar. Some of the best set pieces I've seen in recent years from any motion picture medium have come from this show.

The show keeps getting better as it goes along too. I've seen many shows falter at the end, but I'm totally confident Breaking Bad will end as great as it's been through 5 1/2 seasons. I can't wait...

Definitely my favorite television show of all time, and one of the greatest ever to grace the small screen. I'm also sad to see it end, but I'm sure its gonna be one helluva final trip.

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.

I agree. While the writing and directing is as good as it gets, it's also some of the finest acting I have ever seen as well. Lady at work tells me Cranston has won a bunch of awards for his portrayal of Walter White. He deserves 'em. Also a great job by Jesse, Skyler, Hank, Gus, Walt Jr, et al.

And she tells me season five is 16 episodes instead of just 13.

Won the Emmy in 2008, 2009, and 2010. Nominated 2012 (didn't win) and 2013 (hasn't yet occurred). Several other wins and nominations.

No doubt. I was born and raised in NM and spent the past 20 years in Albuquerque. Breaking Bad is an amazing show and it's fun to see all of the local Albuquerque references and landmarks ( I live like a mile from Walt's Car Wash), but The Wire is the GOAT. It's not even really close.
