Started Watching Breaking Bad on Netflix. Finished first Season & I am hooked

To give a little background, the Story is about a brilliant Chemistry professor who discovers that he has Lung Cancer. To ensure that he has enough money for his treatment & family he gets involved with a Drug dealer & end up making a very pure form of drug thanks to his Chemistry skill. The series shows his journey through the dark side & how he handles his family life, his ailment & his special skills

Don't worry this was no spoiler most of this is clear/told in the pilot episode itself.

Currently watching Suits, and I'm hooked to it. Will complete the 2nd season today, will then watch The Wire. Also, finished Breaking Bad. Quite stupid of them to air only half the season now and the other half in mid 2013. But no issues, it's one of the best shows I've seen. Dexter S07 also seems pretty great.

Done with Breaking Bad, now waiting for episodes to air.

Started Watching Supernatural - Its about two brothers who hunts ghosts, spirits & other supernatural beings. Watching season 1 & its pretty good so far, a few episodes may dissapoint but overall the chemistry between the brothers & slowly building plot while keeping each episode independant is a nice way of naration.

I am about to finish 3rd season. Some of the episodes were really amazing, for example the one about the fly. What was that all about!
And i think Jesse is my all time favourite TV character. "I'm a blowfish, yo!"

Watched 'The Wire'. And trust me guys, every second of this series is way too epic. The characters, their acting, the gripping storyline, the quotes, every damn thing.

10/10 no doubt for this show. It's the greatest TV show ever made. Do yourself a favour and watch it. It features #1 on my list, just beating Game of Thrones and Breaking Bad.

The first and second season was gripping, but not so the third season which am into now. How are the other 2 seasons compared to the first n second?

Yes, Season 2 was pretty boring for me, it picks up from season 3. Yes jesse is my favorite too. Aaron Paul has played that role really well. Did you know that they had originally planned to kill Jesse by end of first season

I dont want to spoil it but you will see that as the series progreses he is the only character with a good concious in the series.

Ah, watch 3rd till the end, especially the final few episodes, there is a huge twist The 5th season is the best IMO. My favourite characters are Bubbles, Omar and McNulty.

I'll finish the third season tonight and will start with the 4th one. But, to be honest, I am not that impressed. It's a good show but I think it was way too hyped as the best TV series ever. That one for me goes to "The Wire". It seems so much more real to me. Breaking Bad has some really irritating episodes where I feel I am just wasting my time.

The Wire is in a different league altogether, though the last season was not as great as the rest. You just keep watching one after the other without a break. I managed to finish 4 seasons of the wire in a week .

True, while I enjoyed Breaking bad (season 4 & 5 is where it gets more interesting) I didnt find it as good as the Hype. Dexter is far more better.

Will check out 'The Wire'

To all the Breaking Bad and Game of thrones fans - do catch Homeland.
It won Best Drama, Best Actor & Best Actress Emmys.

Equally good if not better !!

Looks like today is the last day for BBC Entertainment and CBeebies in India since they are shutting down their operations from December.
Sad news!!
