Breaking Bad

This is yet another TV series from our US cousins that has me reaching for my bag of superlatives each time I watch it. File it along with The Sopranos, The Wire, Mad Men, Nurse Jackie, etc.

The DVD box sets of the first two seasons can be got from Amazon for not a great deal of money. I highly recommend them. There's a lot I could say about this series, but I'll let those of you who are interested find out for yourselves. I predict that if you give the first season a try, you'll be hooked.

The thing that prompted me to come out as a fan is this fabulous tune that played out over the the end of the episode that I've just watched:

Rob, I could not agree more. My wife and I watched Series 1 on DVD as our nightly entertainment recently in a caravan we have on the North Kent Coast - we know how to live. As soon as I was back home I ordered Series 2 soon to be watched.

I was just thinking about this tune and I see that it has been removed from my original link. Luckily, it has been posted again:

No apologies for bumping this up, as it's well worth it.

As is Breaking Bad.

Rob, it might be just you and I on this thread - two's company?
Thanks for the 'heads up' (where did this phrase come from and I'm young enough (53) to use it? ) on Los Zafiros. I've just ordered Bossa Cubano. And also thanks for the same re: The Roots. I bought half that album - you can do that these days and 'How I Got Over' is the stand out track. No doubt the boys or their folks had a Curtis LP or two in the house.

Shamefully Breaking Bad 2 still in the wrapper probably due to The Killing.

Trust me: it's worth going back for the rest of "How I Got Over", it's a really strong album.

Also, check your message box re: Breaking Bad.

Rob, in case you didn't get a PM back (conflicting info says it's sent and not sent) thanks a lot for your PM.
