I keep getting the feeling that Low Winter Sun will be remembered simply as the show that's "not Breaking Bad".

Here's a nice little tribute to Laura Fraser, the Scottish actress who played Lydia:
Lydia (Laura Fraser)

We never really got a chance to see her lovely smile in Breaking Bad, so this is a refreshing perspective.

Pretty cool recap of the show - it takes us right up to season five part two. The guy narrating is funny in his story telling and descriptions. I especially liked his words about Lydia and Todd. And the end where Mike is shot - "What? Mike dies but the car wash guy with the eyebrows gets to live? Come on Vince!"

So I have all the episodes of Low Winter Sun, yet unwatched, on my Tivo.

Should I go for it or delete? Worth the time?

I actually like it, but it's definitely no breaking bad.

I did not expect that level of quality, but if it is not a waste of time I will give it a shot.

Thanks!

It's a very different kind of show...the people on Low Winter Sun are as nasty and evil as the people on Breaking Bad, but we're not supposed to like or sympathize with them anywhere near as much. The leads are just terrible people, and the token "good cop" so far is just that...a token. The most interesting characters are the criminal bar owner with terrible taste in men, and her junkie ex-cop ex-husband.

So (and I can't believe I'm saying this) it's not as uplifting as Breaking Bad was. And you have to be willing to go with that. It's broken people trying, mostly in vain, to cope with life in a broken city (Detroit, if you didn't know).

Wow! I had no idea she was Scottish. It's amazing how some actors can do such a convincing American accent that you don't even doubt it for a second. I love the song that was playing in that video as well. Scouting for Girls is one of my favorite bands.

As do I....it's a VERY dark, gritty show, and I imagine the Detroit Chamber of Commerce isn't wild about it. But I think it's well-acted.

It's been fun to cruise through the various youtube vids about Breaking Bad.

There is a fun one from The Simpsons with Marge making blue meth cupcakes, but this one had me laughing out loud. "I ain't no skank"

Simpsons/BB mashup

Lucky for me I don't work with anyone who watches BB (I think I need to check our hiring practices), so I avoided all spoilers and we watched all of Season 5 Friday to Sunday, except for the finale. We were going to save it for this weekend when the boy comes home from college and all watch it together, but he said he was way behind in his watching, so I said eff him, let's go.

My favorite series ever? I am not sure, but Ozymandias was the most emotional I have ever gotten watching fictional TV. I thought calling the finale "Felina" with the anagram and the imagery that it called up was just another example of what made this show so brilliant. (I also own a "Los Pollos Hermanos" T-shirt )

I think we should bring this thread over the top of 500 posts. Just in honor of a great show.

It needs to be higher than the number of posts for the Lost finale (1464).

Are you kidding? The complaining here has been non-stop!

I am sure it will be brought up upon occasion. In comparisons and such. Just as LOST is now.

Ten years from now we will have a thread "Remember that show you couldn't stop watching" and LOST, BB, The Wire and others will be mentioned.
