First off, I've heard a lot about how good this show was and honestly I didn't think AMC or whatever channel it airs on could come close to HBO in producing a TV show. But I watched the first episode and was immediately hooked. Great acting, directing, music, etc. etc.

So now I'm almost to the end of Season 3, and I hit this episode that actually has me wondering if I should continue watching. I mean it was that bad. I'm sure I can't be the only one to hit this particular episode and have this thought.

It was the fly episode btw. My question is this...is it all pretty much downhill from here on out? Season 3 has been kind of iffy to me anyway, but I thought it would start to pick up and now here I am nearing the end of the season and they spend an entire episode chasing a fly.

I too started watching a couple of weeks ago, but I'm only in the middle of season 2.

I actually just watched a comparably weak episode too, but I'm still hooked.

It's the greatest show in the history of television.

The fly episode doesn't suck. The fly that's in that episode resembles Walt's guilt for letting Jane die like that, that's why he wants Jesse to kill the fly, it resembles him wanting to get rid of the guilt he feels.

The show just gets better, and better, and better. The ending of Season 5 has fans still waiting at the edge of their seats wanting the last 8 episodes.

We have to wait all the way until next summer though, enjoy being able to get into that show right and have something so great to watch besides football...

I also started watching a couple weeks ago and am up to season 4 episode 2. That Fly episode was my least favorite episode. Otherwise the show is great. I still prefer Dexter, but this is right up there.

the slow episodes serve to lull you into a false sense of security

The "Fly Episode" was my least favorite also.

Every once in awhile there are some lulls in the story to lay new groundwork.

However, the lulls are inevitably followed by a flurry of action.

I think you will enjoy watching the rest of the series.

The end of the fly episode was so fuging tense I couldn't hardly stand it. I was nearly screaming at my TV for Walt to shut the fug up before he said something that Jesse would kill him over.

Fly is one of the best episodes this show did. Rewatch. It's not just a filler episode, there are underlining things in that episode all over the place. You guys just missed the point of it, this show doesn't have filler, trust me.

Hell on Wheels is OK but Justified is light years better than that, so watch that before.

We'll have to disagree on the Fly episode. It was easily the least entertaining of the series thus far. I watched a couple more episodes and it's back to being good again.

I didn't like that episode at first either, but I think it's a symptom of blowing through the episodes and not realizing the overlying themes in the show. The show can be pretty deep and 'the fly' is one of those episodes that delves into Walt's psyche. Not to mention it was a bottle episode.

Yeah I get the whole deeper meanings thing. Just make it entertaining...the Fly episode certainly was anything but that.

Just starting watching about three weeks ago (thanks to Netflix), just finished episode 8 of season 5. This is by far one of the best series ever on tv. I hate that this is the last season, only 8 episodes left.
