Breaking Bad In A Week
I haven't watched any of Breaking Bad. Until now. I've decided to catch up on the entire run of the series in the final week remaining before it broadcasts its finale next Sunday. I'm tweeting as I watch (@BreakingBadN1Wk) and compiling a tumblr blog ( of more thoughtful reactions to the series and its themes and motifs (and unholy lust for chartreuse) as well as my ill-considered predictions of where it's headed. Thought it might be fun for old Breaking Bad fans to relive their original shock, horror and befuddlement through following mine, as I race to finish before Sunday.

what's the deal with chartreuse? (I've only seen about 1.5 seasons of BB)

Dunno, man. They portray it as the color of meth smoke, but regrettably I do not have the experience to confirm whether this is true...

This is the type of crazy shit I have to endorse. But how you're going to do it without actual meth I have no idea.

I'm going to try watching the entire series in reverse. I just didn't feel like watching something so (that should be) downer at the time but reading a few interviews and listening to the cast in the NYT video interview it sounds intriguing.

You picked a good spot for a break (" Off to have a life for a few hours") because beginning with S03E12 it's going to be difficult to stop watching because almost every episode has a "HOLY SHIT" cliffhanger.

You're almost to the season 4 finale now. I am refreshing your Twitter feed with gleeful anticipation.

"S4E13: Wait, what? Walt poisoned him? What? What?"

"S5E02: Oh, god. Oh, this is awful"

If you think it's awful now just wait until you get to S5E14.

"S5E07: At this point the best I'm hoping for is that Mike lives." 4:41 PM - 29 Sep 13

"S5E07: Well, that's the last thing I hoped for fucked." 5:18 PM - 29 Sep 13

I am so enjoying watching all your hopes and dreams being crushed today.

"S5E09: I am full of nothing but dread."


I hope you get so sucked in needing to know what happens next that you marathon the final 8 in one sitting. You can always call in sick tomorrow. Priorities, dear.

Tempting, but I have deadlines. One more.

"S5E10: The throwaway lines are the best. "Send him to Belize, I'll send you to Belize.""

"Oh, dammit. One more"

You're not sleeping until you finish the series. Just accept it.

I am afraid I am. Going to bed, that is.

Oh good, you're back at it. Finishing off the final 4 tonight?

I enjoy watching you watch TV.
