    I have been trying to get Killick to go back and watch Breaking Bad from the start of Season One but he is being difficult and insists the show is stupid.

    Can I get some help from SportsJournalists.com's finest?

    Share your thoughts.

    If you like methheads in tighty whiteys, have at it.

    Best show I've ever seen.

    I live in Covington, Ky. I can look out my car window on any given day for that.

    I'm wondering why Killick thinks the show is stupid? What episode did you see?

    I've been to Covington many times. Meth heads and hicks are bountiful.

    But you know what aren't? Mexican drug lords doing ruthless ass things that Mexican drug lords do.

    Also, unless I missed it at the Newport aquarium, there are no exploding tortoises with an informant's severed head on top of it.

    And while those are the mind-blowing WTF moments, the show is a helluva lot more than that.

    It's a great, great show. You will not be sorry. I promise.

    Actually, didn't say it was stupid. I think my exact words were "Chemistry teacher turned drug guy? Doesn't sound like my cup of tea." Last drama that JaSID and I agreed on, I think, was Rescue Me. Otherwise, very different tastes. So, when he says he's a big fan I immediately see red flags.

    I think what really got me hooked completely was Walter's devolution from good-natured chemistry teacher who kept everything bottled up to connected to every evil drug lord from here to eternity meth cook who lashes out violently at the drop of a hat. Just watching a man fall from grace while at the same time doing everything for his family really drug me into the show.
    That and his relationship with Jessie made the show, watching the two of them bumblefuck their way to the top because they could create some amazing product made all the dumb stuff they did even better.

    Maybe I'm not remembering this correctly, but Killick you were in on the discussions for either Sherlock or Downton Abbey or both, right? Well I enjoy both of those, Sherlock more than DA, but they're both in my second tier.

    Breaking Bad is at the top of my first tier of shows still on the air. It's fantastic. Once Gus, Mike, and Saul join the cast, it's the best ensemble acting of any show on tv.

    Some of the best acting on TV. In four seasons only two or three episodes that aren't tremendous. Yeah, the storyline is a bit far fetched but attention to detail makes up for it in spades. It's unlike any show on the air. And its gotten better each season. How many shows can you honestly say that about?

    If Gale's version of Major Tom won't convince Killick, nothing will.
