    Any body seen this yet? outstanding show, in which a schoolteacher whose life is falling apart teams up with a renegade ex-student to start a meth lab, brilliant new dark comedy drama. Starring Bryan Cranston (Hal from Malcolm in the middle). Give it a go.

    I've got the first few episodes of this to watch, but there is so much good TV at the moment.

    I've also heard very good things about Lie To Me - starring Tim Roth.

    Not seen it yet, got too much to watch myself.

    I got halfway through Mr. Brooks the other night with Kevin Costner, looked a really good film, pretty dark.

    the OP makes it sound gash, not my fault.

    I hate the X balls and Strictly come balls too.

    Yeah but lets face it the op is a thick illiterate twunt. He probably spent a good hour trying to figure it out why Malcolms mum had vanished, and that Dewey had really grown but the ADHD had got really bad.

    A bit of decreasing returns in the most recent series, but still very watchable.

    You have to be kidding me, it started and ended quite literally with a bang, and if Jesse's plight didn't pull at your heart strings, well you have no soul.

    Only if you've seen all of season 2
    Like the way he solved his and what he believes are jesse's problems by letting Jesse's girl choke on her own vomit. Light hearted moments like that make this a prime time family entertainment show. Next he'll build Jesse a cold turkey room from a wind up radio and some bog roll

    Just thought I'd echo the good words about this. I would highly recommend Breaking Bad. I've seen a fair few shows over the last few years and this rates near the top.

    Not as good as The Wire or The Sopranos, but it shits on just about everything else.

    Have not read any of this thread for fear of spoiling something, but I've just started the second season so should be caught up soon. I really like it. Bryan Cranston is very good, and the first episode of the new season was brilliant.

    Brilliant show, it's like The Sopranos meets The Wire meets Weeds, although not quite up there with the first two.

    Just finished Season 2, not a clue what to make of that ending to the finale. No idea how it ties in or

    what the crash will mean

    It's a brilliant show though.

    Epic show. Gutted Season 3 doesn't start until March. With no dexter, no Prison Break and no Breaking bad, i've succumb to watching The Mentalist.

    There's no reason why you wouldn't, it's very well made.

    Plus it has sexy women in it. But then so do most things...
