Best show ever! I just finished a binge watch of Breaking Bad. This was my first time watching it. I don't know how y'all, who watched it when it first aired, managed to survive from week to week. As soon as one episode ended, I was clicking on the next episode. It was like riding a roller coaster that never stopped. I'm exhausted lol.

I liked how the cartel was portrayed as the evil monsters they are. I hate it when bad guys are romanticized.

I believed Walter's lie. I believed he did it for his family... until the last episode. I'm still not sure which was the lie. Do y'all think he did it for his family? or Did he do it for himself?

The only bad guy I had any sympathy for was Jesse. I thought Saul and Mike were great characters but I didn't have much sympathy for them. Did y'all have any sympathy for any of the bad guys?
Not sure how I glossed over your questions. I was loyal to Walt and Jesse until the end, although it was heart breaking to see Walt be swallowed up in darkness. When Hank and Walt are standing in Hank's garage and he says, "I don't even know who I'm looking at." I think that's how viewers feel. I never liked Mike and Gus in the same way but I loved the characters. Viewers are given several opportunities/moments to sympathize with them, too.

There are so many great monologues in this show but when I first watched this scene I was astounded. Jesse and Walt speak aloud, on several occasions in the show, their inner monologues and struggles with morality and justice.

so well acted. Just watching the transformation of these characters as the seasons progressed -- amazing acting.
