Yeah, it might have worked better as a web series. But we'll see.

Worried about the spinoff? Off the top of my head... Writer for SNL. Writer for Get a Life. Cast member Ben Stiller Show. Cast member Larry Sanders Show. MR. FUCKING SHOW. Run Ronnie, Run. Tom Goes To the Mayor. Arrested Development. Breaking Bad... I have complete faith in Bob.

Can't forget Tim & Eric and Check it out^

Bob is brilliant, and who knows, what's to stop some adventures with Mike prior to BB from occurring? Everyone seemed to love Mike and his badass ways.

Yeah Bob Odenkirk is awesome. He wrote the motivational speaker sketch for Chris Farley when he was a writer for SNL. Gotta second the Tim & Eric and Check it Out! love.

Tim & Eric are unfunny as fuck to me. No idea why all these respected comedians like them so much. But whatever.

Re: Breaking Bad (Spoilers inside, beware)

haha I know what you mean, it's definitely a taste you have to acquire. I used to hate T&E when it first started but I love it now. The movie was good but not great.

Re: Breaking Bad (Spoilers inside, beware)

T&E is either love or hate. It's such absurd comedy it almost goes into just pure absurdity and really isn't like anything else out there. The cuts/editing, the awkward dialogue, over the top parodies, are all unparalleled. A lot of influence is starting to show already, esp. stuff like Portlandia which focuses on awkward social interaction.

But it's awesome they have such big actors/comedians involved along with z-rate community access type characters (some of whom actually appear to have some mental issues).

Keep in mind, I'm a huge fanboy of pretty much everything they've done, and probably watched their movie around 20 times (including times watching it with the commentary on), but I can see why people don't like it.

Since I'm too lazy to post this in the TV shows thread and this kind of ties into what's been discussed new season of the Eric Andre Show starts tonight on Adult Swim, should be glorious. Check it out if you like Tim & Eric style comedy.

"And he's still going to be on the hook for the murder of two federal agents. But yeah, even though that's the most likely outcome, the way I see it is that he got away and got to Alaska, changed his name, and had a new life. You want that for the kid. He deserves it."

Re: Breaking Bad (Spoilers inside, beware)

opening this thread makes me want to rewatch the series. I was late to the game, too, and binged as much as I could for a few weeks. I couldn't even think about anything aside from the show during that binge, I don't know how people watched it on tv stretched over years.

Re: Breaking Bad (Spoilers inside, beware)

Nearing the end of this and while I have to say that it's really interesting to watch how much the characters change, it's also depressing as shit to watch how terrible of a human being Walt becomes. Really, almost the entire cast starts out likable and then at some point they just start to wear on you. I'm only 2 episodes into season 5, but I kind of wish it would have just wrapped up more quickly after Gustavo's death because I've got this feeling that both Mike and Jesse (the only two decent people in the show imo) are going to have something fucked up happen to them that's just going to leave me shaking my head and disliking Walt more.

Re: Breaking Bad (Spoilers inside, beware)

I was glad when it was finally over. I got sick and tired of listening to Walt's annoying self-righteous bullshit. A great show, and great character arcs, but my god, Walt alone did indeed make the show too depressing and annoying to be actually enjoyable.

Re: Breaking Bad (Spoilers inside, beware)

Finally finished watching it. It was definitely a great series, but as mentioned above, it was to the point to where it was getting tiring listening to Walt try to justify every shitty thing he does. As someone also wrote above, it would have been nice to see a more happy ending for Jesse, but I felt the last episode was pretty decent.

Yeah, the robotopanning M60 clubhouse annihilator was cool an all, but like ya said, justifying shitty assholery, constantly, it was just too much. There was no-one likeable left in the show by the end.

It was cool when Landry shot that random desert biking kid though.

BCS is awesome. Don't know if better than BB but definitely at the same level. Can't wait for next season!

Re: Breaking Bad (Spoilers inside, beware)

Agreed with shad. BCS has mostly likeable characters, who are just as well written and complex as BB, maybe even moreso. And it looks like they'll be going through long development arcs too just like BB.
Definitely far more enjoyable viewing than the last few BB seasons.
