    It was great – tense, fun and a little bit scary. Not enough Hank, though. Love him.
    Draga – that part with the keys was real funny!!

    Best show ever, just sad that the fifth is the last season. Started watching it at very beginning because of love of Brian Cranston. Still get a kick out of Walt, his wife and attorney all being characters on Seinfeld! LOVE THIS SHOW and nothing can ever top it!

    @Draga: It may be split over two years but its still part of the same season, so that’s two parts to season 5 of 8 eps each.

    Whenever you hear somebody say how horrible television has become (Jersey Shore, 2 Broke Girls, Work It, Rob, Charlie’s Angels, etc.) please direct that person to Breaking Bad. This show is the polar opposite to “crap tv” and is the beacon of hope that keeps me on the couch…

    The best tv show after a long, long time. Loved Bryan Cranston as Hal but he is at his best as Walter White! And Aaron Paul? Amazing. The story line from season 1-4 is flawless. (I know, I watched one after the other via Netflix instant streaming) What a ride!!! On withdrawal right now, still thinking about it. Season 5 premier did not disappoint. Thank you Vince Gilligan.
