Breaking Bad

OK, I came to the party a little late, but 'Breaking Bad' is hands down the BEST show EVER!  It beats LOST, 24...ALL of them!  My 70 year old (but very hip) therapist recommended it to me for a "distraction".  (Yes, I have a therapist, I have a few issues..)  She absolutely loves the show (along with everyone else on the planet) and laughed while telling me the concept - a struggling, nerdy, seemingly spineless middle-aged chemistry teacher is diagnosed with terminal lung cancer (what my mom has) and winds up creating this pure crystal meth via advanced chemistry techniques with a former student of his so that he can leave money for his broke family and pregnant wife after he dies.  OMG, the show is CRAZY, but incredibly well acted (Bryan Cranston has won 3 emmy's now) and it just hooks you in completely.  I was sitting with my jaw open at the end of episode 3, Season 1.  I couldn't believe my eyes.  I have been watching the seasons thru Netflix - waiting for each disc in the mail.  NOT GOOD ENOUGH.  So I went out and bought a new 55 inch Samsung HD, 3D LCD TV with internet and a new cutting edge Surround Sound system so that I can stream Netflix live and see the show in all of it's glory whenever I want.  So what that it cost me $3500....ha!  Maybe I will wait on retirement just a little longer.  It gets delivered and setup tomorrow!!!  Can't wait!


Here is a clip of one of my favorite scenes; the turning point at which Walt goes from skittery mouse to complete BADASS:

Great show -- we stream via Netflix, too. My cute Microsoft BF hooks me up, I only pay for high speed Internet anymore, no cable and no dumb home phone. :-).

Yay about John. That makes me happy.

Many X's and O's my sweet friend.
