The second season, to me, is perfection. Literally like watching a perfect game. The third and fourth seasons contain more "holy ****ing ****" moments and more action but the second season is perfectly constructed in every way. There's not a single misplaced scene. Each scene supports each episode which in turn supports a 13-episode thematic season. Season Two is just a masterpiece.

So do we have a concensus on Breaking Bad?

Breaking Bad has my vote, though I'd like to do more with it than just the title sequence idea. However, I think it would be better to post a poll of about the top 5 ideas to vote on.

We need 'buy-in' from the fans, now.

I agree, how does one make this a poll? Yes...obvious n00b question.

We can do more than the title sequence idea for sure, I'm just saying that even if that's all we did it would be good enough.

Ideas:

Photoshopping Hitchcock to look like a bald, goateed Walt with the word "Chemistry" on it.

Alex Pietrangelo as "Skinny Pete"/"Skinny Petro"

David Backes pic with "I am the one who knocks"

Just off the top, could probably think of more.

Should be Roman Polak who gets the "one who knocks" with the Polak door and all.

That's very true.

I also kinda want to see a Perron-as-Jesse Pinkman idea develop.

Since I don't watch Breaking Bad, I'll probably be repping my own avatar.
That said, how good of a show is it? Worth watching on Netflix?

That's pretty awesome. I'd be curious to see different fonts to the "eaking" "lues" just to see which one I like best but the color, the smoke, the boxes around the letters and the font in the boxes are all very well done.

I though the first few seasons were amazing. I think it jumped the shark last season, and it started getting a little too outlandish and unbelievable. I'm glad they're wrapping it up this year.

At least it didn't get as outlandish into the series as early as Weeds did.

Oh man.. yeah. When I said "jump the shark" I didn't mean turn to utter **** like Heroes or Weeds. The first few seasons were nearly impossible to live up to.

2 good shows just ruined by complete and utter randomness and poor writing.

Found the same font as Breaking Bad actually uses.

To those who have not watched Breaking Bad yet, watch it. It kicks @$$

I know everyone is on board with Breaking Blues, and count me in.

But I like the idea of an independent avatar of Jbo as "The 29 Year-Old Virgin". Just the text around a pic of his head giving a stupid grin like Steve Carrell in the 40 year-old virgin poster.

If this has already been suggested then ignore me...

edit: Something like this would work.

Is BB already "official" or will there be a poll?

Never saw this show but my trust in you guys is endless...pretty much...

I just though game of thrones would be a cool theme, too. Lots of good, useful stuff

Breaking Bad eh? I've heard it's a excellent show, never have watched, since I don't get much leisure time due to my job for the department of veteran affairs. When will a poll be up?

If I may toss in a late suggestion that only a few will get, if we play the Kings in first round, we should use the Venture Brothers "Revenge Society" as a theme.

Just a thought.

Hey there Blues fans! Hoping I can hop aboard this bandwagon for the playoffs, big fan of you guys and hope that you go a long way.

If bandwagon avatars are made, want to be first in line! Take care of business this year guys.

Ha, I don't think anybody has mentioned that idea. I think that is a pretty solid idea. Although, I'm not sure how much could be done with it since I don't really remember any quotes from that movie.

I honestly think I'm leaning towards the "breaking blues" just based on that image that was created for gif 1. Looks pretty cool.
