AMC is showing all four seasons of Breaking Bad starting June 11

For those of us who keep saying "I really need to watch this show", now's our chance!

How did a public school teacher become Public Enemy Number 1? If you haven't been keeping up with the series Time magazine calls "TV's best drama," you might not have the faintest clue. Fortunately, AMC is encoring all four seasons of Breaking Bad with multiple episodes airing late night every night starting Sun., Jun. 11. Stay up late or set your DVR to watch the entire series in order from the beginning. Witness Walter White's dramatic transformation and get ready for the new season premiering Sun., Jul. 15 at 10/9c on AMC.

And shockingly the beginning of the final season will break viewing records.

I highly recommend anyone on the fence get on board it is well worth it.

I wonder if the pilot and first few episodes will be shown as the originals were televised (with brief nudity and adult language), or if they'll be the censored sanitized versions on Netflix?

Definitely going to set the DVR to find out.

Considering this is AMC, one would HOPE they would be the original versions.

But now ya' got me wondering...

Nonetheless, SP set with a Keep Count of "All".

Since you guys keep raving about it, I'll give this a shot. Only reason I didn't watch at the beginning is because it wasn't in HD on DirecTV...now it is.

I'm also starting watch Mad Men. Watched the first episode again, which I didn't like the first time around, but liked better on the second viewing.

Edit: SP now set!! Thanks for the heads up.

YES! You will be hooked. I honestly only know 1 person that I've persuaded (aka strong armed... aka bugged until they watched just to shut me the F up) to watch that did not like it and that's my boss. And he doesn't really count considering he doesn't like any show with violence or gore or fighting or mystery. Basically he likes old westerns and comedies....

I'm all over this like a fly on poop. I didn't start watching until the third season, but picked up the first two using torrents. And, since my cableco just recently added AMC HD, I'm stockpiling these to watch before the fifth season debut...

Suddenly I have a lot to watch again, once this starts to fill my DVR. So much for catching up on all those movies I have saved up

You'll definitely be glad you did this. Breaking Bad is much more compelling than any movies you might have been saving up.

Sadly, the sound quality of AMDHD on DirecTV isn't very good. The iTunes version has much better sound quality (as do the WEBDL versions if you torrent it).

It's not much better on our cableco....it's Pro Logic II and not DD5.1...

If the first four minutes of the pilot isn't enough to grab you then I don't know what will. Have a fun ride.

I watched the first 3 seasons on Netflix. I've been waiting for Season 4 to hit Netflix but I'll set a remainder for June 23 so I can catch up.

I can't wait for Season 5.

One of the great tv series of all time. And rare in that each season just keeps getting better.

Can't wait to see how they wrap it up in the last season. Will Walter be rewarded despite the despicable person he's become, or will he get his comeuppance?

I guess you're an "out of sight, out of mind" kind of girl. Raylan will be disappointed.

Back to BB (am I allowed to call it that if I have never seen it?), this is great news. We'll be caught up on Game of Thrones by then, and can really get into this one.

After all the comments here, I've finally started watching the show on Netflix.

I've made it through three episodes so far. It's good, but maybe I'm missing something.

There's a lot of "best show ever" type comments here, but so far I would put "The Shield", "Sons of Anarchy" and "Justified" well ahead of "Breaking Bad".

I'll keep watching because I'm enjoying it so far, but is there something in future shows/seasons that gives it the "best show ever" title, 'cuz so far I ain't seein' it!

Curious about others opinions on this matter.

You're confusing me then because I've never ever said any show was better than Breaking Bad. Justified is in my top list but it isn't better. Game of Thrones would be the closest right now but with just 2 seasons I can't even really compare yet.

You'll be waiting a long time... I already know several people waiting for that. I can imagine there are thousands of people also waiting for it.

That's a much better route to take! Trust me.
