WARNING TO ALL: THIS THREAD CONTAINS SPOILERS! PROCEED WITH CAUTION! With the finale just over one week away and the second last episode tonight, I figured it's about time to get a Breaking Bad Discussion thread going! Conceived by Vince Gilligan, former show runner with The X-Files, Breaking Bad stars Malcolm in the Middle's Bryan Cranston as Walter White, scholar turned teacher turned meth cook. The show follows Walter White through his decent into the drug world of New Mexico leading him through countless explosive situations, with unexpected twists and turns. The show has received numerous awards, being nominated for 46 Primetime Emmy Awards, it has been universally loved and has been hailed as one of the greatest shows to ever air on television. This thread is both an appreciation thread and a spoiler thread. There will be some rules for the thread so spoilers don't ruin plot for others. The rules are as follows: 1. Spoilers are allowed in this thread. Any spoilers of the most recent season should be denoted by season number and episode number (or name). The first 4 seasons are fair game to be discussed without warning in this thread. E.G For Season 5 Episode 11 the proper format would be [5-11]. Please place this tag at the beginning of a post if you will be talking about spoilers from that episode. The other option is to use spoiler tags: [ spoiler] Text [/ spoiler] (Without the spaces of course). 2. As the most recent episode is airing, please refrain from posting about it. The show airs at 9pm EST on Sundays and airs for 1 hour to 1 hour and 15 minutes. Once the episode has ended, feel free to discuss but please remember to denote spoilers with the tag above. 3. Discuss to your hearts content! Everything is free game past the two above rules. These rules are simply so people don't get things ruined for them! Please follow them so others can enjoy the greatness that is Breaking Bad!
