    So, this is it. Breaking Bad has reached its endgame, and after last night's premiere, there are only seven episodes left before Walter White's story reaches its end. So how about a thread?

    Warning: Spoilers inside!
    I also think it's hysterical that more has happened in Breaking Bad's premiere than in all of Dexter's final season so far. How embarrassing.

    So, what did you think of the episode? Are you psyched for the rest of the season? Are you ready to watch Walt's empire break in a negative manner?

    There's going to be a lot of spoilers here, obviously, so if you're a newcomer to the series... well, you might want to tread lightly.

    One more thing

    The Killing just ended last week. Now we have Hell on Wheels, Breaking Bad, and Low Winter Sun. By the time those are over it'll be The Walking Dead...then Mad Men... I wish I could just subscribe to one channel rather than pay a full cable bill...

    Jesse seems broken and I'm going to be pretty bummed if Walt isn't gearing up for a battle with him at the end with all that hardware he's got. There's no particular way I'd like to see this show end, but I'd be more than satisfied with Jesse taking out Walt in the finale...

    Really strong episode, the show has always been good but it's never been like "gripping" to me oddly, but I feel like that'll change. I think my exposure to high shit-levels in Dexter has made me appreciate good shows a little bit more.

    I haven't watched any of the new episodes of Dexter yet. I'm sorta waiting until all the episodes are out I guess. One thing that I loved about this episode of Breaking Bad, the writers didn't drag out the whole Hank/Walt thing. They got it done in one episode "Hank knows Walt is Heisenberg you fuckers, you ready for this shit?!"

    But at the same time, what is Hank going to do next, he doesn't exactly have the most proof to pin Walt, and like Walt said, he would never see the inside of a jail because of his health.

    I enjoyed this episode. In fact watching this and catching up on Game of Thrones has made me forget that Dexter is even on TV again.

    Anyway spoiler chat time.

    Another highlight of the differences between Breaking Bad and Dexter. For a show that's supposedly building up to a spinoff, I couldn't care less about Dexter side characters ("But how is Batista's restaurant doing?" asked no one ever).

    Breaking Bad, on the other hand? Holy shit, you could center a show around almost anyone. Lydia? Sure. Huell and Kuby? Definitely. Badger and Skinny Pete? Of course! Saul? Fuck yeah.

    Of course, I'm still hoping for a spinoff where they all travel together in a van, exploring the countryside while solving mysteries. Fingers crossed!

    Honestly, that was a pretty damn boring episode. It didn't really push the story further or anything other than

    Nothing wrong at all with being bored by an episode of a television show. Kind of ridiculous to be bored by that particular one though. The story moved along there a hell of a lot more than it did in the previous episode where the only memorable moment was the end. But hey, stick around...there might be some 'splosions or main character deaths in the next one...

    You're funny. You're probably one of them people who calls everybody who doesn't like an amazing game a "CoD fanboy" too right? I don't care about explosions or characters death. Hell some of my most favorite parts in the series is when there's tension between two people, like Marie and Skyler and the baby.

    Not at all. Just confused as to how you define tension... Skylar and Hank's discussion was pretty tense. Walt and Saul's discussion was pretty tense. Jesse sitting in the interrogation room, zoned out, while Hank was standing in the hallway was pretty tense. Hank and Marie talking about bringing in the DEA was pretty tense. Or is tension only when people are slapping/punching one another and screaming?

    You don't know what the fuck you're talking about tension can't be in dialogue only in EXPLOSIONS.

    Remember that scene when Walt blew up that drug den. That was awesome!!!!!!111!!!!!11

    Wouldn't YOU like to know?
    Remember when that zeppelin blew up in 1937. Oh the humanity!!!!!!111!!!!!11

    Hindenberg!

    Seriously though, I'm liking these past two episodes so far. I can't believe this entire saga is going to wrap up in a month and a half. I'm optimistic about things moving along much faster in the upcoming episodes.

    How about we make some predictions (in spoiler tags) for how this will all pan out? The winner with the most accurate predictions at the season finale gets a hypothetical high-five.
