I never watched the show during its normal run, but recorded the entire series the week of the finale.

Holy Crap! That was a hell of a series and an awesome ending. Granted the final two eps were more an epilogue, but what way to end.

The acting was top notch all the way around.

It's funny, but I kept seeing Jerry Doyle as Hank. I think that would've been an interesting alternate casting.

I loved Walt's downward spiral to darkness. You could see flashes of Walt in Heisenberg, but I think Heisenberg was his true personality.

I kind of missed the sciencey aspect as the series went along, but I can't think of a bad episode in the whole series.

I'll miss the show, but I've got Netflix if I get too lonely. I'm also considering the series Blu ray set in the barrel.

Hard to compete with Breaking Bad for consistent excellence throughout the series, but these had their moments.
I'd add Babylon 5 to this list. And Justified is also great.

Ahem.

Babylon 5 is, in my opinion, one of the most significant shows in television history. But it is deeply flawed in many ways, and one's enjoyment of it will depend entirely on one's priorities. E.g., if you value above all Big Picture storytelling and intricate long-term plotting, this will be one of the greatest shows ever. If you love great acting and realistic character writing...not so much.

Yeah, that's my overall impression of Babylon 5. A really good concept and overall story construction. Several great episode plots as well. Often poorly executed, unfortunately.

I think it's strangely interesting that Walt made it through the entire series without once sampling his own product.

I don't. It was always a way to make money, originally to pay for his medical expenses and provide for his family. He had absolutely no interest in the product (apart from making it the best he could!).

I think a lot of people go through life not sampling the products they make. Heck, they may not even have an interest in the product to begin with, either, it's just a way to make money...

I'm a landlord, and I don't live in an apartment.

I'm sure there's a meth joke in there somewhere...

I think Jesse sampled enough of it for both of them.

It was removed because it's an extra on the DVD set and was leaked early.

I just put the Complete Series on Amazon into my cart then moved it to Save for later. I really want this but not for $200. I'll wait until it goes down in price or buy it used later on. I definitely want to watch the series again, maybe more than once. I've seen a LOT of TV shows over the years and this is at the top of my list of all time favorites.

I just finished the whole series in 53 days. (But I see someone finished in two weeks--they must not have small kids.) I heard/saw/read everyone talking about the show and loving it...so I decided to finally start watching the night of the series Finale (S01E01, not the finale).

Wow. Just...wow. I was hooked from the first episode and it all flew by way too fast. This was the best television I've ever watched.

I just can't imagine watching it in real time over five years--1.5 months was tough!

Yeah, I can't imagine having to watch it over 5 years - there are times I'm certain if I caught it in real time I would stop watching. But when you binge it, oh, wow, the brilliance of it comes out clearly.

Here's Vince Gilligan unboxing the new Blu-Ray set. I wish I had $200 laying around.

The BD set apparently has a video clip of Aaron Paul and Bryan Cranston as they first read through the final scenes and apparently their reactions were very interesting.

Interesting. A bunch of clips from the BD set were uploaded to the various magic sites yesterday, but I don't see that.

The three things Gilligan wishes he could change were interesting- such small, yet significant errors that still bug him.

"I really think, all joking aside, I made Aaron Paul's teeth stayed too pearly white and pristine for the entire six years and your teeth don't look that good if you smoke that much meth or if you get your ass kicked that many times," Gilligan said. "So what else? And Dean [Norris], we had your character say 'DMV' one time and then we found out later that in New Mexico it's 'MVD,' Motor Vehicle Department. We f***ed that up. What else? And then the one I really hate, we had Giancarlo's character, Gus, refer to Hector Salamanca as 'Don Salamanca' instead of 'Don Hector.' So sorry for that all you Spanish-speaking folks out there. That was a screw-up, too. But that's about it, so that's not too bad."

OMG, that's it. Now BB goes down three notches on the best ever lists.

Vince is anal. That must be why the show was so damned good.
