Breaking Bad

Call me an old fart, I don't care because the label fits.
I just this week started watching BB for the first time on netflicks.
Awesome show!!
So far I'm still in the first season, going to watch episode 6 a soon as I log off here.
Incredibly good show from what I've seen so far!
Walt is so cool!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It is very addictive. Decided to watch all of this season on Amazon Prime last Saturday night so we could see the finale live.

I stumbled across the very first episode 5 YEARS ago and never missed an episode. It was one of the best series ever on TV IMHO.

Since I've seen ALL episodes I'm not sure that I can share your opinion of Walt being cool. He sort of was in the beginning. I'll stop with that to keep from spoiling it for you. I would HIGHLY recommend that you do not skip ahead. Watch every single episode IN ORDER.

With these testimonials, I'm going to watch it then.

I just wasn't sure if a guy in my age bracket would enjoy it.

Paul, you might like it and you might not. I think age won't have much to do with whether or not you like it. If you don't like it, it will be more of a production style issue and whether or not you like the story. It's quite bloody at times and definitely R rated in spots.

It's none of my business, but if I were you, I wouldn't let your daughters watch it. That said, we all have our own parenting style, so that is totally your business, but you might want to not let them see any of it until you can make your own judgment.

Oh Lordy, the twins are only 10 years old. I'd never let them watch something like this. They've barely started watching PG movies.

Good for you Paul. I know several people that let their kids watch most anything, but I didn't take you for one of them.

Enjoy the series and don't skip ahead, not even one episode. You'll thank me for this advice later.

10-4. I might start this weekend.

The twins have friends at school who tell them their parents let them watch R rated movies at this age. Simply stunning.

My wife did a series marathon starting with episode 1 of series 1. Cool show.

"Addictive" - a word that best describes this series

I'm glad I'm not the only one! I started season 1 on a Saturday, by the next weekend had finished everything that was available on Netflix. Anybody else watch the Walking Dead?

Show how great the illegal life is.
Work 8 days a month and make $xxxxx per month !!
Prove that if the bad guys come after you, killing them is a good thing.
Quit only after you have a pallet of cash.

NEVER WORRY ABOUT OR SHOW THE LIVES YOU ARE DESTROYING
