Here's an old thread!! I thought I would revive it since the show only has FOUR MORE EPISODES left.
I love Breaking Bad. About a month or so ago I decided to watch it from the start because I'd seen the promos for Season 5 all over Foxtel. So I finally caught all the way up and last night watched Ep 12 of Season 5 on TV.
I agree its a slow show - if you watch one every week I can see how it would seem that way. After watching almost 5 seasons over the course of a few weeks I found it to be a brilliant, very clever show.
