Diary of a Fangirl: Breaking Bad

Breaking Bad is another show on a long list of shows I have yet to see.  That all changed the other night when I saw the first two eps of the series at my BFF's house.

I have mixed feelings about the show.  I mean, it's funny and interesting and I want to know what happens next, but it's also at times gross and off putting with the violence.  And I say that as someone who can find the funny in violence in cinema and film, but it's usually of the unrealistic variety (zombies, vampires, and werewolves--oh my!), or at the very least, be cool with viewing it.  Devotees will recall what happens in the first few eps when the need to dispose of a body arises and...yeah.

That being said, I have every intention of watching the rest of the eps, and probably seeing this through to the finale.  Also, whenever I see Walt walking around in his underwear, I can't not think of Hal from Malcolm in the Middle, and then wonder what Hal would do if he had cancer with a ticking clock.

In short, the show is riveting!

Other shows I plan to marathon watch (cause I haven't seen them): 
The Walking Dead
True Blood
The Wire (which I'm also wary of cause of the violence, as well as these next two--)



  1. Breaking Bad is one of my all time favorite shows since I caught up with all the episodes about a year ago. The Walking Dead is great too, but if you really want to be blown away, check out the comics issues 1-60. Stop after that, because you'll just get pissed off.

  2. Lol, I'll try to check out the comics. Should I read those first, or watch the show first?
