I cannot believe Breaking Bad doesn't get more SJ love

    This is an excellent show my friends. I highly recommend it.

    I'm two episodes behind. Hopefully I won't be after tonight.

    Love it. The one a couple of weeks ago, when they were being held by Tuco, with the old guy with the bell -- that was as good an hour of TV as you'll ever see. Really intense. Cranston is tremendous.

    It wil be interesting to see how they bring this show to a conclusion.

    I watched the pilot a few days ago. I think it's the best first episode I've seen since The Sopronos. I will be checking out the rest soon. Cranston's very, very believable.

    This is on my 'must see' list. Will have to get it on DVD.

    Good God - I'm midway through the second season now and this is one of the best television series I've ever seen. Great acting, spectacular writing, constantly has me pacing around the room. The first episode of the second season is just fantastic stuff.

    I've never heard of this show outside of this board, FWIW.

    Love this show. Love it. Since it sounds like some folks are a couple episodes behind, I'll try not to go the spoiler route, but the path they put Jessie on this season has been great.
    And the episode from this past week was just simply phenomenal. Alternately disgusting, shocking, heartbreaking and funny all in the span of a few minutes -- but that's just par for the course with this show.

    SJ, do yourself a favor and begin watching this show on a regular basis. Tonight's episode blew my mind.

    Included was perhaps one of the most jaw-droppingly oddball killings I've ever witnessed. As a bonus, it includes character-actor legend Danny Trejo.

    This show is amazing.

    Edit: Next week's episode apparently has Bob Odenkirk playing a drug lawyer. The mind races ...

    I'd have to say Tortuga's (Danny Trejo's) mind was pretty well blown after that killing, too.

    Cranston won an Emmy last year. I think Aaron Paul deserves one for this season.

    Agreed. "Mad cheddar, fat stacks, cash money." I didn't realize until this season of Big Love on HBO, but he also plays Sarah's boyfriend on that show. Amazing what a some nice clothes and glasses can do to a person.

    The Jesse Jackson thing was cracking me up.
