I'm often slow to pick up on watching good TV shows, mostly because finding the time to devote to TV is such a challenge. I didn't start watching Cheers, Seinfeld or Entourage until they were in syndication and very close to ending their runs.
Add to the list Breaking Bad. After lots of encouragement from friends to check it out and several failed attempts to get into watching on a regular basis, I finally dug in this week, went back to the pilot episode on Netflix and have not looked back. I have been in complete awe of the writing and acting, and I'm avoiding anything online that might clue me into the ending. At this stage I have to say that I'm probably as addicted to the show as Walt's customers are to blue sky.
