Breaking Bad Junkie

I'm not sure how I missed "Breaking Bad" when it first began, a few years ago.  But my friends were talking about it at dinner a few weeks ago and I knew I wanted to get on board immediatly.  They had me at, "Meth".  I don't know what the deal is, but I love all movies, shows, books, etc about drugs, and in particular, the crystal meth epidemic I keep reading about.

I was told the final season was about to begin, so I decided to start from season 1, and get caught up as quickly as possible.

The hubs and I have now marathoned 2 weekends of Breaking Bad, and we've blown thru 2 1/2 seasons.  We should be all caught up in another couple of weeks.
I love everything about this show.  It's got drama (obviously), action (of course), and it's even funny (a little surprising, but yes, it's true.)  The acting is phenomenal.  I guess everyone knows this, right?  I'm not telling you anything you don't already know. I'm very late to the party.

I know I'm about as consumed with "Breaking Bad" as Jesse was with meth the first two seasons.  Even when I was at the Bruno Mars concert Monday night (which was awesome, by the way), I found myself thinking about Walt and Jesse.  What the hell is Skylar gonna do when she finds out what Walt is up to?  And is Jesse gonna be okay?  Ever?  And what's finally gonna get to Walt in the end?-- his cancer?  a drug deal gone bad?  What?!?!

I can't wait to be caught up so I can be a part of the current "Breaking Bad" conversations.  I am, however, going to more than likely severe withdrawals once the final season comes to an end.
