Yeah, I don't get the Saul love, at all. I kept waiting for him to do something memorable or funny or tragic, yet he remains the typical stereotype for sleazy, ambulance chasing lawyers.

I just don't get it.

Yea, pretty much. I think its just the quirky way Odenkirk plays the role. The acting all the way around this show is superb. Even the tiniest supporting roles they manage to add some flavor to.

Unlike shows such as Homeland, Sopranos and Mad Men, shows that have featured unlikeable characters that are deep and interesting, thus become likeable, I just don't find myself caring about Walt, Skyler, Marie or Jessie. Gustavo Fring is definitely the most interesting character with the best back story, but I knew he'd meet his fate before Walt or Jessie (and haven't seen it onscreen yet).

It's not that the show is bad, per se (even though Season One was unwatchable for me and Season Two wasn't much better until about episode 8/9) it's just all so...predictable. At least it is, to me.
The last season will make it all worth your while. At least, I hope. I think the best part is the debate about who to like and who to hate. The writers take an interesting approach of making everyone equally likeable and unlikeable, but toward the end, you'll start to pick sides. I honestly didn't really get into breaking bad until the Gustavo thing heated up.

Then again... I watched lost recently. I think I really missed out on a lot by not having debates and discussions about what happened. You really miss out Oma lot when you can watch episodes back to back.

LOST is somewhat different because the douchetard writers/producers decided to leave Easter Eggs and build a mythology that ultimately didn't exist (**** them, especially Lindelof).

That said, I've watched entire seasons of 24, The Sopranos, Homeland, Mad Men, etc. (and now Breaking Bad) in a matter of weeks from the very first episode, and never felt like I would have benefitted from an online discussion.

And just for the record, the character name is Skyler. So in this case, no, it's not Skyler or Skylar. It's only Skyler.

It was tongue in cheek- I've seen it before a number of times in the thread.

While I think this series is well acted and produced, I do not understand the massive fascination with it, the storyline, the actors, etc. The first two seasons were nothing short of painful to watch and it's not shocking in the least that it was near cancellation. In Season 3, it's became more of a standard "gangster" style of program but Walt's actions aren't anything we haven't seen before in other films and TV shows.

The story and character arcs have been predictable and unsurprising, IMO. While it's well acted, nothing is shocking to me. I almost stopped watching in Season Three but the "Cousins" kept me interested. Season Four has been better but also more predictable.

Add to that, the only "likeable" characters to me are Hank and Walt, jr. The rest are a collection of ****ups, especially Walt, whose story arc and background are somewhat weird to me, given the fact he's a brilliant chemist that chose to live the life of a teacher instead of a scientist. Skylar and her sister are completely unlikeable and Walt's love for the former is unimaginable, especially after her actions. It doesn't ring true, at all, to me.

Also, the entire series seems like a metaphor for shitty health insurance in America. You're in the teacher's union but your insurance won't cover your medical expenses? It's so ****ed up that people need to create and sell meth! You're a government agent whose policy won't cover the best therapists and treatment to your recovery? Take hundreds of thousands of dollars from your BIL who's cooking meth/gambling! It's like the overall theme of the show is that health care in the US sucks and people must do whatever necessary, even commit major crimes, in order to receive necessary health care. Blech.

While I'll watch the final few episodes of Season Four and finish the series, it truly feels like a homework assignment. I'm only watching due to the hype, not any pleasure derived from the program itself.
I couldn't have expressed my feelings toward this show as well as you just have, but this is how I feel. I really did enjoy this show. A lot! But ultimately there are no characters left to root for or have any real interest to invest your emotions in their survival.

Of course I'm on your side. I don't see deaths, explosions, dramatic twists, and white men getting revenge as the chief criteria for television greatness, unlike (presumably) some people on this thread lately.
