    Vince Gilligan has promised an ending where all the loose ends are tied, the opposite of the ambiguous Sopranos ending.

    There is a possible spinoff in the works. A prequel about Saul Goodman that is more comedy and less drama than Breaking Bad. "Better call Saul."
    Just the possibility of this has brightened up my day.

    I have never really been into TV Dramas that much, aside from Breaking Bad and West Wing, and I am really curious as to how you guys feel Breaking Bad stacks up to The Sopranos and The Wire (I have not seen either). Those are two shows that I have heard are some of the best TV experiences ever, which is why I am just beginning to watch them, but what are some other really good dramas similar to Breaking Bad and The Wire? I hear a lot about Game of Thrones and Mad Men, but are there any under rated/under exposed shows that I may not have heard about?

    Also, back to the topic, watching Walter White turn into Gus and Mike has been very interesting to watch. The whole theory that Walter adopts a little bit of the people he kills is very interesting.

    On that note, has anyone else noticed that in the flash forwards Walter is wearing a similar/same coat as Jesse has?



    The more I think about it, the more I think Jesse is going to die.

    I could never get into the Sopranos.... but I put Breaking Bad and the Wire on an even level... but that level is WAY at the top of my list.

    Couldn't get into The Wire. The Sopranos Ive seen a bunch of episodes. Its pretty good. But thats not necessarily seeing them in full context, so my opinion does not hold as much merit as someone who never missed an episode.

    Breaking Bad is incredible. Sons of Anarchy was almost on "breaking bad" level. Then it kind of fell off after season 3. I got halfway through season 5 and it got way to "The Young and The Restless"-e, especially for what is supposed to be a show about bikers.

    Now, going back a ways. Two shows that were big were The Shield and LOST. I never saw much of The Shield but heard great things. LOST I never missed an episode, thought it was incredible. But, I haven't seen it since it ended.

    A show that gives Breaking Bad a run for it's money is Homeland. It's like the tv equivalent of the movie "Zero Dark Thirty" only more complicated.

    ... and Holly. But that's only because she's an infant and killing her off would be just too cruel.

    The only reason you want her to live is because she's a milf

    She's actually really annoying though and remember she's a kleptomaniac?

    I wouldn't cry if she died lol

    I'm not saying I care if she lives or not. Just when discussing who DESERVES too. Marie and Holly. That
    s it.

    I called it. Hank is going to get info out of Jesse.
    Maybe Hank become the father figure Jesse always looked for in Walt and then Mike.

    I believe Lydia and Todd are what drives Walt to exile in New Hampshire. As we know now Walt comes back to New Mexico on his 52nd birthday armed with heavy artillery and ricin to deal with some demons.

    Walt will not hurt Hank.. based on what he said to Saul when Saul brought that idea forward it seems to me that the Ricin will be used on Lydia.. and the heavy artillery on Todd's family.

    Hank is going to try to bring down Walt and Jesse is going to be the key. Here is a description for next weeks BB:

    "Skyler's past catches up with her; Walt works to cover his tracks; Jesse fights feelings of guilt."

    I suspect Jesse is going to crack under pressure from Hank and tell him everything.

    And we all know what Walt does with loose ends... and Jesse is the loosest of them all.

    I think this is going be interesting.. Walt always looked at Jesse like he was his kid, essentially family. I don't think he will do it, and that will be his downfall.

    I don't know... Walt has already done some pretty horrible things to Jesse that Jesse doesn't even know about yet.
    What's going to happen when Jesse finds out about Jane, the kid and Mike? Because he is going to find out at some point and I think Jesse will turn completely on Walt when that happens.

    Fuck I love this show.

    How great was that scene of Walt burying all his money?

    Loved that scene. Walt's relationship with the desert is an interesting one.

    While I don't think it will happen, if Walter does have to kill Jesse I imagine that would be one of the most emotionally charged and intense moments in TV history.

    Why do you think Walt was like "Jesse, you have to believe me."
