'Breaking Bad' Season Finale


Did you catch Sunday nights explosive ‘Breaking Bad’ season four finale?

Critics raved and made surprising ratings winning.

2.9 million viewers tuned in to see Walter White and Gus Firing face-off. 

"The show was also ranked as the most engaging series on television according to Nielsen’s IAG, which measures program engagement and ad effectiveness." - The Hollywood Reporter

I know I’m not the only one who has never watched the show but are ready to jump on the bandwagon.

Rejoice. Netflix (or Quikster?)

now has the first three seasons of ‘Breaking Bad’ on Instant Queue.

*(Read my next post for Monday’s official announcement on the company scrapping their proposed DVD/streaming website split.)* 

I know my intrigue lies primarily in knowing how a house in my neighborhood burned to the ground because of a meth lab in the kitchen. I also have my fingers crossed ‘Breaking Bad’ works like an educational PSA, in the same way ‘Weeds’ enabled me to spot a drug deal going down.

There’s also that small (miniscule) interest to see what all the talk is about over Bryan Cranston’s three time Emmy winning role as a high school science teacher turned crystal meth manufacturer/dealer. With three consecutive Emmy wins for Best Actor in a Drama Series, Cranston has come along way from playing dad on Fox’s ‘Malcolm in the Middle.’

(Although, did you know Bryan Cranston received three Emmy nominations for that role?)

Also, if you missed it, check out Cranston’s great performance in the Ryan Gosling lead ‘Drive.’ (Also, if you missed it, shame on you. It is unarguably one of the best movies of 2011 and will no doubt be grow in popularity beyond it’s fall sleeper success.)

But now I’m off to Netflix to catch up on ‘BB’ so I’m ready for the fifth and final season of ‘Breaking Bad’ returning in 2012 on AMC.
