Breaking Bad

536 posts in this topic

I saw the thread for best shows of 2007/2008.. but i felt this one deserved its own. If you havent heard of it yet i highly recommend you watch it, already emmy talks for acting and best comedy/drama category. Its incredibly original.. wish i could think of stuff like this.

The basics:

A married highschool chemisty teacher, who has a son with has cerebral palsy finds out he has terminal cancer. Given roughly 2 years to live he decides to team up with one of his former students (a meth cooker/dealer) to make and sell meth so his wife and son can live without poverty after he dies.


Airs on AMC, Sundays.

Great show. It's the one show I bust my butt to see each week. He really gets put in some extremely tough spots from a moral standpoint (Crazy8 in the basement).

Glad someone here has seen it...

Walt finds the broken plate is missing a piece, which Crazy 8 pockets and is planning on sticking Walt with as soon as he unlocks him.. It really is great stuff.

Great show. Last night, family was watching the Olympics, so I'll watch last night's BB episode today. I've really enjoyed The Wire, The Shield, Breaking Bad, and Game of Thrones. Other than those programs (and Top Gear UK), I watch sports.

Great show. I watched on Netflix from Season 1 to where we are now in a couple of months. Ace.

Season 4 was one of the best seasons of any television show, up there with season 4 of the wire. Also they are much better if you watch them all in a row on netflix.

Very cool show, just recently got into it (on the second season now). I heard a ton of people talking about it , so I figured it would suck, like most stuff on t.v. I was wrong it's a pretty good drama, but bryan cranston brings a little bit humor to the show.

Gotta say, I really like this past week's first-half of season 5 finale. Without spoiling any specific, the ending was something that has seemed inevitable for a while now, though I liked the way they did it (invoking a dead certain someone).

No new series until this coming Christmas though (which means several months later for us in the States).

After seeing the pilot and hearing so many good things about it, I bought the first season on Blu-Ray when Amazon had it on sale the other day. Looking forward to that.

I loved it! Vince Gilligan and his team of writers didn't let us down!!  BB is awesome and I can't wait until next summer to see what they do to wrap it up in the remaining 8 shows.

Best show on TV with an amazing finale to the season.  10 months to wait before it's gone forever.  May have to watch all of the previous seasons again while waiting.

    • My Swing (b101)
      Not much of an update, as due to a lot of work in the run up to exams, I haven't actually hit the range much recently. I've also quite enjoyed taking a break from endless swing thoughts and just getting things feeling a bit more natural. The flight is now high, with a 7 iron flight looking more like what my pitching wedge used to look like. The shape is now usually right to left with the bad miss still when I get the face closed at impact. Distance is definitely better, too, with a 7 iron now carrying around 170 on a good hit - at least 10/15 yards longer than with that shorter swing I had around the turn of the year. I'm going to get on the range a bit more in the next few months and will start uploading some footage, but things are looking and feeling pretty good.

      Stupid easy to hit, too.

      I find it becoming a strange discussion. My 2c. Stick with your evolved instructor. Or respect the given instructions. And deal with it. Use what you think is helpfull. Otherwise I do not understand why you would seek advise in this thread. I might be wrong but to me it seems you do not trust your evolved coach and or the given opinions.    To me, it presents an insight how top coaches are looking at your swing.

      Handicap card completed - Off a 23 which is a bit higher than I'd like, Going to play in my first comp next month hopefully. Still working on those blow up holes. Shot an 86 yesterday which is my best round in a long time! 
    • What would a PGA Tour player shoot at your home course?
      @iacas Not sure why you feel the need to try and make people feel stupid? What's the attitude all about?

      Because you seem to think that nobody else has any valid arguments, I felt compelled to contact a friend of mine and ask him about the subject. He has won twice on the MacKenzie Tour, 4 times on the Gateway Tour and played in the US Open in 2010 at Pebble Beach. I Facebooked him a few days ago and heard back from him today. He said that his Tour buddies of that calibre typically shoot in the mid 60's (or lower) if they play an "average" course for a Pro-Am or a sponsor's event or for a casual round. He added that he played a municipal course in Phoenix last week (he didn't say which one) and shot -8 without ever having seen the course before. And he was never able to make it through the final stage of Q-School so he self-admittedly doesn't have the skillset of the PGA guys. I still say the average Tour player would shoot in the low 60's at my course. Here's the scorecard of it, and Nick Taylor's scores from the 2006 Provincial Tournament. He was only a junior at the time and hadn't played for the University of Washington yet. Safe to say his handicap has improved a little bit since then  and he still shot 68 twice and under difficult tournament conditions! No way he'd shoot that now.
