I've been looking for a good place for deeper discussion of great films and TV shows. I saw this thread in AskMeFi and checked out the criterion forum, but found it lacking.

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 (http://breakingbadinaweek.tumblr.com/) 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.

Its hyperactive stage show and loud, anthemlike harmonies come in part from Mike Messer’s theatrical background and from Stephen Jacobs’s love of seminal funksters Parliament-Funkadelic. Says Jacobs, ‘We want to give kids their first rock & roll experience. I had to wait until I saw Prince!’” [more inside]

Assuming you're not a Destination Truth fan specifically (which is fine!) pretend that this is a site about YOUR favorite television show. My question for you is, what sort of obsessive detail do you look for in a fansite? What more could I be tracking? [more inside]
