We're coming up to the start of Season 3. Grab your raincoats and come join in.
I guess the show's already finished, and what will be will be, but I'll be truly broken hearted if Walt and Jesse turn on each other in the end. The best thing about the show was the odd couple who had each other's backs, and if the writers take that from us, I'll never forgive them.
Hey. Anyone know where I can purchase "Jesse Pinkman's" colorful all over design hoodie with the skull on the front??? (seen in Season II when Jesse's sitting at the table with Walt at Los Polos). Please let me know the make and where I can SURPRISE my fiance with one. Thank you so much. ~Jessie
Breaking Bad is an adult show, with its core concept – a teacher
diagnosed with lung cancer who begins to cook methamphetamine to
provide for his family after his death – how could it really be
anything else? And even if people didn’t get from the concept that
it’s an adult show, they’d only have to watch it for a few minutes to
find that out. So, just what am I getting at? Well, you censor, and continue to censor
a harmless word, the f word. I understand you
have to protect our sensitive eyes and ears from bad words, but here’s
the thing, we’re into Breaking Bad’s final season now, and I’ve seen a
lot. Like a man being beaten to death, another one shot dead by a
child, a woman choking to death on her own vomit. I’ve watched
teeth being snapped off in a bar fight, heads being severed with an
axe, and bits of brain hitting the camera lens as a guy was shot in
the head at close range. Limbs blown off by an bomb, half a face blown
away by another. I’ve seen a double amputee crawl across a room, his bloody, bandaged stumps leaving a glistening trail of red behind him. And this is just stuff I can recall off the top of my head. The most graphic,
of course, was an unflinching scene in which a character’s throat was
slit with a box cutter and whose rasping desperation I
watched until he eventually fell to the floor dead. Please understand AMC, that I don’t have a problem with any of that; as I said earlier, I appreciate that I’m watching an adult show, and a very dark one at that. At the end of the episode 5.05, a child was
shot dead; set in this context, is the word ‘f***’ really so
offensive that you have to cut it out? The worst problem though, not that you mute the swearing, but that you only allow one single f-word per season. Season one of Breaking Bad had a TV-MA rating and as I recall, had multiple muted f-words
throughout the season, which is fine because I can get the full
uncensored experience once I had purchased the DVD/Blu-ray, which I
did. And I understand that Breaking Bad was originally intended for a
different network, thus allowing the larger amount of f-words in the first season to be broadcasted by AMC on a one-off basis. So why cant the final season of Breaking Bad go back to this as The Walking Dead, of which I am also a giant fan, has been changed to a TV-MA rating, which would entitle the show to unlimited swearing, so this would be perfectly acceptable. Is it really likely that, in a show that contains everything I’ve just
described, this word will offend my delicate sensibilities? Or, is it more likely that the credibility of your network will be damaged by such ridiculous, arbitrary censorship? Particularly as it is
completely obvious what the word was anyway, so the whole idea of
obscuring it achieved absolutely nothing. I know that AMC depends on sponsorship and advertisements from the likes of Walmart, but seen as The Walking Dead has been forced a TV-MA rating, there's simply no going back. You might as well change all your adult shows to a TV-MA rating. AMC is a cable network just like HBO or
Showtime that broadcast TV-MA shows such as Boardwalk Empire, Homeland, True Blood, Dexter etc. All these networks are LEGALLY allowed to broadcast what may be considered to some, extreme profanity
and and so are you. I do wonder what show creator Vince Gilligan must think of these decisions and all the other hard-working writers who have contributed millions of viewers to your network and made it what it is today,
massive. Please take this into consideration and continue to improve your programming.
Bryan Cranston is a great guy. Arrives for his take and takes the time to walk around to all the extras tables and say hello. Class Act!

I'm rewatching BB from the beginning on Netflix and I've noticed several scene changes and deletions. This really pisses me off since I've already seen the "offending" scenes. Who does Netflix think they are doing that? I wonder if AMC knows Netflix did that? Here are the changes so far. I'm only into season 2.
1) Skylar pleasures Walt with her hand for his birthday, gone.
2) Topless woman in window when Jesse is climbing out the window to escape from the DEA raid Walt attends, now wearing a bra.
3) Jesse and friends go to a strip bar with the money Walt gave him for the RV, gone
4) Jesse stealing Combo's mom's RV, gone.
5) Walt's F U to Gretchen, silenced.
6) Jane telling Jesse to pass out on his side the first time he does heroin, gone.
Perhaps Netflix should remove meth from the whole show since that's bad too.
