    I think the Aztek was just used as the epitome of dork.

    That, and what a great contrast to the bad-ass 300C SRT that he drove after the "transformation" was complete. :)

    I still can't believe I decided to watch it all on Netflix and catch up on 5.5 in time for the finale... the hours between were the longest ever, though.

    Argh!

    So made room on the TiVo. Moved a ton of stuff to different drives between 2 PCs so I could move programs off of the TiVo. I set up the season pass. I thought I removed all conflicts.

    Turns out episodes 101 and 102 didn't record. I guess that was my fault. Turns out there was still a conflict.

    Everything else recorded except I can't transfer 503 to my PC. It plays fine on the TiVo. It transfers just 162 KBs and stops. I tried doing it multiple different ways.

    Anyway, thanks for the heads up about the marathon. I think we will muddle through somehow. :)

    (And my wife enjoyed the pilot tonight so I think we will be watching this for a bit.)

    Do you have netflix or can you buy the missing episodes from amazon or iTunes?

    I'll get them one way or another. Probably try a torrent first.

    I had never watched an episode so I thought I'd record the marathon. My Tivo caught all 62 episodes. But after the first one with AMC's annoying commercials and constant censoring of curse words I got fed up. (I don't need to hear the word, but the sound dropouts bug me ) Luckily I still have a month of free Netflix from buying my Chromecast so I'm watching them that way instead.

    I'm up to S03E03 now. It's not as compelling as SOA or Justified, but it's Ok. Greatest show on TV as it was made out to be? I don't see it.

    Yeah, it you watch it individually it's not that great. But binge it, and it's a lot better. There are a lot of episodes where it does nothing but set everything up for a future episode.

    Breaking Bad is about actions and consequences, and even the most innocent action can reverberate down the road. Plus, season 3 is a bit slow, however the last 3-4 episodes things REALLY pick up again.

    Everything's in the setup phase. Near the end is where the dominoes start falling. But that doesn't mean there aren't some entertaining diversions

    The joy of retirement. I spent the past what? 3 weeks? watching every episode. Just finished the last one. Probably the best thing I have ever watched on TV.

    Well Done!

    I'm laid off, but did the same. saw the whole thing in a few weeks. Great story, characters, and acting. the violence and drug plot had kept me away before, but well done. It's in my top 10 I guess.

    I think I need to rewatch BB at some point, due to the rushed nature I did this time. I was trying, for some weird reason, to get the finale to watch it live. I was about an hour behind, but it was a great ride. Jesse was my favorite.
