So I started watching 'Breaking Bad' a couple weeks ago...

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.

No spoilers. BB is just a fantastic show, beginning to end.

You got to season 5? Isn't that the current season? I honestly don't know. What I do know is that when I watch Breaking Bad on Netflix it doesn't have season 5 up there. At least not on Xbox...is Season 5 on the computer version of Netflix?

I just checked the Netflix site (computer) and it doesn't have Season 5 on there...maybe you mean Season 4?

    • Is this dude a real life person or an alt of @GOOGLE JIM BOB COOTER that is a living joke exemplifying the white culture thread? 
    • lol no one takes him seriously. He gets a courage award for bringing his hand-me-down  dad-politics into ttb while still asking to himself, "what does ttb mean again?"
    • I'm extremely pumped by this addition. It has to be the biggest addition since the team came back to Charlotte. I was too young to follow the original talented Hornets (Im sad), so I'm not going back that far. People and fans can say what they want about D12, but the man still have a lot left in his tank. And, Im tired of hearing how he doesnt fit in today's game anymore. There are only a handfull of big men today that I can really say, can shoot the ball: Davis, Towns, Embiid, Cousins and Aldridge.  Howard can still dominate! That's all that matters. The only neg I will give Howard is that I do see a lack of desire/effort to play at times. But, I believe MJ can help motivate him back to being a dominant big man again for next two years here.  Dwight Howard averaged a double-double last season: 13.5 ppg, 12.7 rpg, 1.2 bpg, and 1.4 apg.  D12 had "53", I said FIFTY-THREE double doubles last season. He had six games where he averaged 20 rebounds or more.  Guess who was the last Bobcats/Hornets era to even come close to that number.....Emeka Okafor in 2004 as a rookie with 47 double doubles (35.6 MPG). Then Big Al had 42 in 2013 (35.0 MPG). Howard did that while averaging 29.7 min per game. If you count out his 2014 season where he only played in 41 games, last season was the LEAST amount of minutes played per game in Howard's career.  Only three guys (Towns, Whiteside and Gobert) averaged more double doubles than Howard in 2016. And only four other guys ( Whiteside, Drummond, DJordan and Gobert) averaged more RPG than Howard last season. Other than Towns, none of those guys mentioned above can really shoot the ball any better than Howard. But, teams still want them on their teams for big contracts.    D12 will be a beast this upcoming season!
