I noticed that Season TWo was on Rogers on Demand and started to watch it, catching 5 episodes before they yanked them off last Sunday

Some truly fine performances, great scripts and some inspired casting make this show a winner. I am sure many of you will disagree with me and still watch it regularily.
Without giving away the store, try it again, your observations are addressed.

Although I have to admit season 3 ep 1 was mostly filler. This may be a series hard to sustain, however there is always good writing, and the acting is good enough to suspend most disbelieving. Also Q is in the last two episodes of Season 2.

Now that I'm totally caught up on BB, I'm a little sad that I don't have a couple episodes to watch every evening.
Allow me to address the quote and then comment in the thread above:
This show isn't your typical show where
1. Setup
2. Conflict
3. Big blow-up
4. Resolution
happen every episode. Much like "The Wire" (aka "Best drama EVER!!"), the first couple episodes of a season lay out some ground-work, with further episodes leading to some HUGE emotionally-charged events towards the end of the season.
(Watching
former sympathetic character Walt allow Jane to choke to death when he had every opportunity to save her
has got to be in the Top5 of any scene in TV drama history (up there with Tony snuffing out Christopher, or Michael (The Wire) saying good-bye to Duquon).

The magnitude of that impact can't reach that high if the groundwork and characters aren't developed and shaped in episodes leading up to game-changing/defining decisions that characters make in crucial situations.

With all of that said, though, the scenes with the Mexican bad guys in S03E01 - those seemed like stylistic exercises.

AMC HD is the only network that I know of carrying Breaking Bad.

I have a photographic memory, trouble is most times the lens cap is on.

Yes but what provider has AMC HD in Canada? Bell, Rogers? I know Cogeco and Directv(USA) don't have it.

I can only tell you Shaw cable has it as I am with them.

BellTV has it up in the 1200's (the new location for their HD channels).

Rogers doesn't have AMCHD but they do have the HD version of Breaking Bad for OnDemand (channel 100). Thy don't usually go up until around noon on Monday so you have to wait an extra day and avoid spoilers on the net.

Don't want to give too much away for those not caught up but this season so far really makes you hate one of the main characters much more than before. At least it makes me hate them.

Loved the title of the last episode: "I.F.T."

Not until the final thirty seconds of the episode do we find out what those three initials stand for - and when they arrive.....wow, do they pack a punch to the 'nads!

I'm disappointed already that there are only 10 more episodes left to this season.

But she didn't really (I F T) right? Did she make that up?

No, she really did F.T.

It would be nice to see this in HD and unedited. The F. part was nicked, somewhat.

As you will have seen in S03E04, indeed T was indeed F'd. And Skyler continues to do so.
Debatable now as to whether it's for sport or if it will always be punitive to WW.

Yeah, ep. 4 conclusively determined that.

I think she's doing it as revenge.
