    Is there any place on line I can see Season 5 episodes 2-8? I just discovered this show and watched seasons 1-4 on Netflix, and would love to be caught up.

    Bittorrent or Usenet, if you're into those things. But I doubt you'd be asking if you were.

    I just started watching. I'm on the third episode.

    I'm reading that the Netflix episodes are edited down from what aired originally. I saw some references to an "eBay scene" from the pilot, and I never saw anything like that. Googling confirms it.

    How heavily edited are they? I would really rather watch the originals if I can, but if its minor I guess I'll just watch the Netflix versions.

    How long are the Netflix versions? I think the AMC versions are generally about 46-47 minutes.

    really? Because what I read was the first episode was the TV version. not the subsequent episodes.

    Ep 3 is 48 minutes.

    There is no "eBay scene" in the pilot. I don't like the idea of scenes being cut.

    I don't remember the episode number, but there is definitely an eBay scene......somewhere early on.

    I was also reading things like people complaining that AMC would blur out the nude woman throwing Jesse's clothes out after him in the pilot. In the Netflix version, she is wearing a bra.

    So they certainly seem to be airing different versions of the eps. If the changes are minor, I won't bother tracking the original versions down, but if the changes are significant, I'd like to see the originals.

    Yes, there is are two ebay scenes in the pilot.

    There is a scene where Walt and Skyler are in bed on Walt's birthday, and she's giving him a birthday handjob, at the same time she's watching the end of an auction... going 'yes...yes.. yes.. YES..YES'.. and it's because her auction ended well while she's basically on autopilot for Walt.

    There's also an earlier scene with Skyler and Marie where Skyler is talking about selling these wothless items on ebay for $40 or $50 each. It's a throwaway scene, but it sets up the later scene in bed.

    On the first version (S01E01) we watched on Netflix, the naked woman in the window was full-on topless. No bra, no blur. At some point in time, Netflix replaced those scenes with more tame ones. Also, alot of dialog was toned down as well. "What you cook is sh*t" was silently bleeped out. Also, there was one scene where Walt had the lab apron and other lab clothes, and in the original pilot, Jesse said "I'm not wearing that, you can dress like a fag"... and "fag" was silently bleeped out too. MANY examples of that in S01 on the Netflix versions.

    If you want to see the unedited/unbleeped versions, I think you need to buy the DVDs.

    Also, for people watching S01 (I don't know what episode) there is a later scene in a strip club. On the Netflix original, many of the women were clearly topless (no blurring). I never went back to see how it was edited on Netflix. I'd be curious to know what happened.

    The eBay scene was Anna Gunn's Breaking Bad audition scene
    NSFW

    It wasn't in the pilot. Allow the show staff to decide to make some changes in the development time before the show airs.

    Sorry, it *was* in the pilot. I watched it on Netflix.

    OK. I watched the show on the first run so it's been a long time since I saw the pilot.

    The rest of you punters who had to catch up when we got the word out can get off of my lawn.

    We just watched the topless bar scene a few days ago, and there was no blurring. It's in S03 and

    is a flashback to where Jesse took the money Walt gave him to get an RV but he went to the strip club with his posse instead.
