    I'm digging this show.

    I either barely through S1 or just started S2. Walter was just butt *** naked in a grocery store.

    Usually don't get hooked on TV but this is a hell of a show.

    Jacked that I have 3 more seasons before getting to the new stuff.

    Oh just you wait... this series gets a LOT more intense... S3 starts the transformation...

    Season 4 is off the charts...

    The Wire was an excellent show. The best I have ever seen. Breaking Bad depending on how it ends could overtake The Wire.

    Omar Little vs Walter White
    Who wins that battle?

    The only time I'll venture into this forum is for this thread :laugh2:

    The cold open from this premiere has everyone going crazy! Too many theories about what happened to Walt and where he's headed. I love the nugget they threw in - his New Hampshire vehicle is a Volvo, a reference to Gus Fring and his ability to hide in plain sight for so many years.

    He's also not wearing his wedding ring. They also made it a point to show it during the magnet scene when he was explaining it was gold.

    Respectfully disagree. Both BB and Mad Men are better than The Sopranos imo. The Sopranos had some very subpar actors in key roles; Bobby Baccalari, Anthony Jr, Meadow, and Little Carmine. And the leads in BB are better; Cranston owns Gandolfini.

    BB is more cinematically complex, uses background and foreground colors better, and also does extremely cool filmed literary devices like in Season2 the plan crash is foreshadowed in S2E5 when they show the ABQ Sky and there are two jet trails criss-crossing. BB does that stuff better than The Sopranos did imo.

    However, all 3 are tremendous shows in comparison to the other 99.9% that's out there.

    Agreed - once you see the character arc of Walt start to play out, you can't turn away. Same with Jesse.

    I felt this was the episode the season needed for a platform to pick up the pace on. Not the most exciting, but vital to the direction of this season.

    That girl lydia was the supplier of methlamine to gus. I listened to the podcast with vince Gillagan and he said that scene was supposed to be in houston. Thing is I think mike is thinking if they get cooking again then the 8 other members on that list can make money again since the DEA froze what gus gave them.None of them will roll because they havent done anything. They were legitimate employees. "I know nothing"

    The scene where Hank and Gomez interrogated Mike was so brilliantly written and acted. The episode gets high marks for that scene alone.

    When they brought up the grand daughter Mike was so ready to tell them where to stick it but knew he couldn't.

    Mike is such a bad arse. So cold, calculated and efficient. The scene with him and the hitman with the dead Asian man in the background was just fantastic television.

    This season is ALREADY NOT going the direction I thought it would, but it's definitely really early.

    Mike as a ******. That's all. He's one of my favorite characters in the show. I love how he handled the interrogation.

    Here is my question: If they are in off shore accounts, how can the DEA freeze the accounts?
