    Breaking Bad's first season was interrupted by a writer's strike. It goes nuts at the start of the second season...I assume that was originally supposed to be the end of the first.

    Yea.. I was watching Breaking Bad on Netflix and didn't even notice when the second season started.

    EDIT: Guess I should say I didn't even notice that the first season ended. Since there isn't much of a Climax.

    Yeah, I watched season two yesterday. Like I said, good show. Nothing amazing. My expectations are probably too high.

    EDIT* I suppose it's hard not to have extremely high expectations when I hear comments like: "You need to see this show before you die" and "Breaking Bad is better than The Wire."

    The scene where all the DEA agents are fist-pumping and chanting: "HELL YEAH! HELL YEAH!" made me lol and cringe at the same time.

    Personally, I thought Season 1 sucked for the most part. It has a ton of fans, but none of the storylines or characters were too compelling for me. Season 2 was the best of the series. 4 and 3 are also great, with my preference being towards 4. Season 5 is about on par with Season 1, but you're familiar with all the characters and plotlines, so it's more enjoyable. After watching everything, I found that it's nice to rewatch the first season to see all the dominos being set into place for the entire series.

    I watched the first seven episodes of Sports Night because I remember seeing an episode like 10 years ago and thinking it was fairly witty for a sitcom. But it's just entirely too smarmy for me. They occasionally run across a funny line or moment or something, but the banter seems a little forced and the whole thing comes across like a bunch of people who know how smart and clever they're being. Also, the hot button issues are really hamfisted and overt and eye-roll-worthy, like a liberal afternoon special shoehorned into a sitcom. Has anyone watched the entire series? Is it worthwhile to stick with it or do these issues never really get resolved?

    My frustrations with Sports Night led me to rewatch a slew of NewsRadio episodes, which is still one of the most guaranteed bringers of joy in my world.

    I've got the whole series on DVD, and it was pretty much my favorite show when it was on the air. I rewatched a few of the early ones recently, and I understand what you mean...especially the one with the guy who assaulted Natalie, and the one where Jeremy goes hunting. Even the non-"issue" ones like when Casey gets his heart back by watching some guy break a running record...cheesy.

    Oh geez, and I just remembered when Dan had to apologize about his interview about marijuana! Yeah, I can totally see where you are coming from.

    As I recall, the show improved. For one thing, they got rid of that damned laugh track. They started to let the drama come from the relationships and did less of that "afterschool special" stuff. I recall an episode where they just play poker, for example. There is some stuff dealing with Issac having a stroke, but otherwise it lightens up in the comedy, and gets darker in the relationships. Also, William H Macy appears for a while, which is a good thing. (EDIT- The stroke plot is not really a spoiler...the actor had a stroke and it was well publicized that they were writing it into the show at the time.)

    I would advise giving it another shot, maybe jumping forward a few episodes. On the other hand, if you don't like Sorkin's style of dialogue, you may never get past that.

    I watched AMC's new show, Hell on Wheels, tonight. I'm a pretty big fan of westerns, so I was really excited to see that AMC was getting a western series. Unfortunately, it was pretty boring and bad. It seems to be juggling too many characters, and none of them appear to be the least bit interesting. There's this tough, but noble gunslinger looking for revenge; an ex-slave who isn't buying into this claim of "freedom," and isn't going to bend over for any white man; a greedy and corrupt railroad tycoon who makes big talks of power and legacy; a widow who has something that tycoon wants, but isn't going to give it to him without getting her's; two Irish immigrants looking for their American fortune; and a very tall priest looking to build a church in the midst of whores... Basically, the show looks to be spread amongst all these basic characters - none doing anything surprising for their type... Also, the writing seems to try and force the story into a historical timeframe at times by making all these textbook references, or in silly winking ways like saying, "The Central Pacific aren't going to finish. They're so desperate that they're getting chinks to build their railroad," or something like that... which seems there for us to say, "Oh, haha, but today, we all know that the Chinese built the railroads." Everything just seems to pulled from somewhere else, which is common in many westerns, but it seems painfully done in this show. Hell, the opening of the show is the horrific flashback from In Bruges, but without the horrible part with the child... Everything else was typical western filler, taking all the blandest elements of westerns and jumbling all of them together.

    do you subscribe to HBO? do they offer HBOgo in your area? there's only two seasons of deadwood, so it won't take you long to get through it.

    while breaking bad to me, at least, shows how human nature can easily turn to the depths of evil, and greed, with the walt character. and, i enjoy how much walt's character has changed over the series, as it has not only shown walt's demons, but also possibly our own, as well. the wire casts a wider spotlight on the world at large, not just ourselves, but focusing on politics, education, unions, journalism, law enforcement, etc. in ways which hasn't been shown in drama tv before or possibly after. obviously, there's a lot more going on in both series, and the wire is far from perfect, but yeah you should give it a try.
