Die a hero, or live long enough to see yourself become the villain.

Season 5 has been amazing so far.

It's all about the transformation of the characters and how Jesse and Walt are at complete opposite ends of the spectrum relative to where they were earlier in the series. Walt is completely turning into a Tony Montana egotistical control freak. He just isn't getting high on his own supply.

It's leading up to an epic conclusion, you can sense it... It's just unfortunate it's coming to an end, this show is now embedded in my psyche... yo

I saw Mike Ermantraut in "Identity Thief" tonight. Too bad he barely had any screen time.

Started the show a couple weeks ago anyways my thoughts.

This show is like Sidney Crosby.. both are great but cannot live up to the ridiculous hype set for them.

Just finished that season 3 finale though that was pretty sweet, even if their plan was kind of stupid.

Yeah there's tons of hype, but it's because so many people watch it now and everyone thinks it's amazing. When I first started watching at the beginning of Season 2 live, barely anyone watched it. I was the only one I knew that watched it and no one would take my recommendation seriously. As a result, I've been able to enjoy it on my own completely surprised without anyone hyping it up for me. Knowing how crazy awesome the show was during the earlier seasons and not being able to discuss it with anyone was both good and bad at the same time.

Was there a reference to a "Heisenberg" in Walking Dead this Sunday? I could've swore the Govenor called one of the villagers Heisenberg.

Yeah, there was. I posted about it in the TWD thread.

Season 4 is just about done now.. really blowing through this.

I will watch one more episode tonight then leave the season finale for tomorrow.

Show is really good for sure but it is so predictable.

You should post what is happening in the finale and Season 5 before watching since it is so predictable

It's likely that you've heard plenty of background noise from friends and media that has given you a bit of subliminal knowledge of major plot points. Everything from the show that has made its way into the melting pot. Episode titles, in-jokes, memes, mild references, that sort of thing. The same way I sort of just "knew" where The Sopranos was going as I watched it for the first time, spoiler-free, a few years after it wrapped production.

Breaking Bad has been the most unpredictable show I've watched in recent memory, to say it isn't without any reason is completely ignorant

So my sister texted me last night. She was on a flight with Walt Jr. from Los Angeles to Albuquerque.

I told her to ask him if he had any Veggie Bacon.

How the hell is this show predictable? I accidentally read something that happened to a character and it still surprised me when it happened.

Same

Unfortunately, someone spoiled
Spoil:
Gale's death
but I was still shocked when it happened and I didn't see it coming really at the time of the episode

It is fairly predictable.. at times..

I mean the whole thing with Gus and the Cartel saw it coming from a mile away, really.. who didn't see that Gus was going to poison everyone when the gift was revealed?

Mike's death was fairly obvious as well.. though I was leaning towards a little more of him killing himself than Walt doing the deed.

So yes, I just finished season 5.. was good, obviously not finished so not fair to really rate it yet... though I'm expecting the next couple episodes to be pretty slow once it is back.

Still ready for everyone to kick the bucket..and I really want everyone to die...except for Saul.

I do agree, Gus poisoning the Cartel was predictable once he gave him the "gift"

other than that, I don't think anything else has been predictable at all

The gift was introduced like 5 minutes before they were poisoned. I don't know if that qualifies as a mile away. If you could have predicted that an episode or two beforehand that would have been truly impressive.
