    There hasn't even been one moment where I thought "well that was kind of lame" and I hear the 4th season is crazy. Why do I have to have a job and do normal daily life activity?

    I LOVE Breaking Bad and cannot wait until the next season!

    Part of me IS happy that they're ending it at this season, rather than having them run out of ideas.

    One of my favorite series of all time is Six Feet Under, and they ended it to well. Another season would've ruined it. I want Breaking Bad to end on a nice, clean note as well.

    I'm worried about how Dexter was renewed for a couple more seasons. I wish they would've ended it after season 5, personally.

    Very very true. I guess I should look at it positively! LOL. Now I really want to watch Dexter...

    What about Mad Men? I've heard good things about it, too.

    I watched the first episode of season three this morning, but NO more until tonight. I get home from class around 9 and will probably turn it right on. Addicted...

    Besides Dexter and Breaking bad my other guilty pleasure is Shameless. I find myself intrigued by the stories and challenging my idea of "I'm not sure that this is ok."

    Great stories :) I love em'

    I'm so intrigued by Walt & Jesse's relationship. Ya know, sometimes Walt would **** me off, because I felt like he was being WAY too hard on Jesse. But then those few tender-like moments made me "awww" a little bit. When Walt went and got Jesse from that drug-infested house, and literally just held him and let him cry, I wanted to break down and cry, LOL.

    And for a while, I thought Walt could do with or without Jesse. But now, after the last few episodes of season 3, I'm seeing the incredible bond the two have for whatever reason and I LOVE it. I hope (but don't tell me) that they show a little more of this side in season 4.

    I can't decide if it's more of a father/son relationship... or teacher/student, or what. I know he described him as a "nephew" to Jane's dad when they were talking in the bar. So, IMO, he does look at him as some sort of family.

    I don't know, but honestly amazing writing going on, and the fact that I can get angry, sad, or happy when one does something to the other, just shows how amazing this show is!

    OMG.

    Seriously.

    I ... don't like Walt anymore.

    I feel like I've rooted for him all along, I just wanted to punch him when he was talking to Jesse.

    ^You weren't into the first episode?! Really?! Lol, that surprises me... I've literally gotten like 20 people addicted just by watching the first episode.

    It's definitely a serious show, but I love the underlying dark humor. I was dying laughing during last week's episode during a dinner scene. But it's not serious like... Mad Men serious. It's action packed. Every episode leaves you wanting more (almost every episode!) but yeah overall it's a dark show dealing with a dark topic.

    Did you really watch the first episode? Season1 Episode 1? I accidentally watched the opening to Season 3, I think, and I thought it was the first one and I was sooo not into it, I was all confused, and was like this is weird. then I was like duh, I just watched the wrong episodes Lol.

    No, it was the first episode (I watched on netflix). I didn't find anything really funny about it... I guess it's probably not for me, lol.

    If you don't like the first one, probably not. But I wouldn't give it up yet... try a few more episodes maybe, and then see if you don't like it. I know there's a few who don't like it, every one has different tastes, but it's just funny to me because I've gotten such a diverse group of people literally addicted. Like all watched all four seasons within a week or two, lol. People who NEVER watch tv, etc, my grandparents, my mom, friends who don't typically watch anything but Bachelor, etc, haha.

    I mainly appreciate it for the acting, the story telling and writing, the plot, I just find it so fascinating, unique, and just... so WELL done.

    Different strokes different folks. I couldn't get into Mad Men with the first episode, but everyone keeps saying how great it is, so I want to give it another chance actually. I may do that once this season of BB is over.

    I've been heading in that direction for awhile now. Walt has always been somewhat manipulative. It's just becomming more obvious now. What I find interesting is how the series is showing how being involved in the drug world changes you, no matter how hard you try not to change.

    Yeah, me, too. There was something so likeable about him, despite being such a bad guy.

    I still find it rather hysterical that I, a "goody two shoes", has gotten hooked on a series about drug dealers.
