    I would like to start watching this but wanted to started at the beginning. It's not on Netflix streaming yet, so I considered getting a Netflix DVD account for a month or two and catching up. Is this worth it?

    I may put out an inquiry to see if any friends have the seasons on dvd and would loan it to me. I am a great marathon watcher of tv shows.

    Best show on TV, bar none.

    And Netflix is now streaming the first 3 seasons. Do a search for it. I just confirmed. :)

    Thank you!! :) I had checked a few weeks ago and didn't see it. I am going there now! It will be on my streaming in a few minutes.

    And yes, congrats on the 1000 post!!!!! :up:

    edit - am I missing something or is it only available an episode at a time for streaming?

    Definitely worth watching....I didn't start watching it until last fall and caught up through the end of S3. Then I watched it ALL over again right before S4 began.

    How many episodes are you planning on watching simultaneously? :confused:

    Best show on television. Starts great and gets better from there.

    Well....I guess only one at a time, so point taken. I just like having the whole season at once and not having to go in and add it to my queue every 48 minutes. I will usually watch 2 or 3 a night when I am marathoning.

    I'm confused about needing to add it to your queue more than once. It may be that Netflix's behavior has changed since the last time I used it to instant-stream episodes of a television series (probably in April or thereabouts). Back then, you could add the series to your instant queue. After the first episode played to completion, you could play through to episode 2. Or, you could come back later and do the same. I don't recall having to keep going back to re-add episodes to the queue - that'd seriously be a pain in the butt. That's how it works now?

    No, you can add the entire series and then select indiv episodes.

    I've been watching this show all weekend. At the end of an ep (after the credits), it gives me the option of watching the next one. This is on Chrome browser, I can't recall how other devices handle it...

    No, my bad.

    I didn't realize that all four seasons were added at once. It seemed like it was just one episode. I should have realized it because that's what they did for Mad Men - all four seasons in one stream.

    Okay, I watched the pilot and am loving it. I didn't realize the actor was Hal from Malcolm in the Middle. If I had realized that I would have been watching long ago. I love that guy!!

    Going back now to watch episode 2.

    By the time you are caught up you won't even remember him playing Hal. He IS Walter White now. :)
