yea it's brilliant, shame it's all over . I read somewhere that last week's episode broke a new record regarding viewers , I wonder if it will get broken again tonight

Glad they approved a spin off show which will start next year I think staring Bob Odenkirk as Saul Goodman :D

Really.....I hadn't heard of the spin off show.

It's rather difficult for me to find a series on television that I like well enough to watch it
episode after episode. I hate too that it is ending.

Yes I know what you mean , most of the shows now they lack a storyline and a proper director in my opinion , Breaking Bad is the second best thing after Sopranos . Game of Thrones is very good as well

I like mobster/ganster type movies and westerns. They rarely make westerns any more and
I guess that is one reason why I like Hell On Wheels is because it's a western .... and the main
character has sort of an old western Clint Eastwood style.

I watched the first two episodes of the new Michael J Fox show. I was seriously looking forward
to it but disappointed some what after watching. It is funny and maybe it will get better but I
hate shows in which there is someone in the show, constantly narrating to me. I absolutely hate
that. I hope it doesn't always do that, every show, but I have a feeling it will. I mean, if I want
to watch a documentary, I will. When I want to watch a program as in series, I don't want the
characters constantly talking to me. Same goes in 'House of Cards' that I watched a couple of
episodes on Netflix and couldn't watch any more it because he constantly blabs to the non seen
audience.

I know I have heard of Game of Thrones but I don't think I have watched it. Is it on tv? Seems
like I saw it listed on Netflix.

I don't have HBO but there is one show on one of those channels I'd like to see and that is....
trying to think of the name of it..... Buscemi is in it and I have always liked him. I think the
name is 'Boardwalk Empire'.

------Oh ok on 'Game of Thrones'....I googled it. No never have watched it because it is on HBO
which I don't get.

I like that British show and I only watched the first season, not knowing it was a season thing.
After I finished the first series/season, I thought that was the end of it. I watched it on Neftlix
and I have been meaning to look see if there is more seasons because someone said there is.
'Downtown Abby'.

I watched the Michael J fox show aswell it's quite funny but nothing special.

Downton Abbey is now in the 4th season, the second episode of the season is starting here in less than half hour and yes is really good.

I don't know what tv series Netflix has in the US but here they have a very poor collection but virtually every series made is free to watch on the internet with a bit of searching on google ( I believe I am not allowed to write here the website ) .

Another very good show is Sons of Anarchy , gangster/biker type series , always good fun to watch .

I've been a netflix subscriber almost since they first began. There is a hub in Memphis so I would
always receive the dvd's in one day. A couple of years ago they increased the price and I got tired
of the dvd's. Really, I did get tired of them because there is only so many movies in the world and
netflix is far from having them all.

I pay about $8.75 a month for netflix streaming. I am sure it is the same or very close to the same
for you as it is me, in regards to what it is and what they have. I am more of a movie watcher than
I am a series watcher. Still, I will say that there seems to be more focus and competition on series
today and therefore there is better or for me any way, more watchable series then ever before. Still,
I prefer movies.

For me the $8.75 a month is worth it. It's excellent in regards to the streaming. No ads. No
herky jerky movements. It's flawless for the most part.

For the streaming only, there is not a 'new' collection per se. They do display new movies for
their streaming customers but most are 3 star and under. The newer 4 and 5 star movies, are
rarely displayed for the streaming customers. I do like older classics and Netflix does not offer
enough of those yet either for customers like me that enjoy watching an old 50's/60's flick now
and then. One night I got it in my head I wanted to watch the old 'The postman only rings twice'
...the old one with Lana Turner. Well netflix didn't have it for streamers.

Still, I find it worth it because if I pay for a pay per view it's going to cost me like $5 or $6.
I can always find something on Netflix to watch, even if it is a stupid movie.

I won't hardly watch movies that do not speak English and Netflix is notorious for listing movies
that are not in English.

I have about 200 movies and series in my que. Sons of Anarchy is one of them. I started out
watching it on tv but was rather disappointed with it because it was nothing like I thought it
would be. I probably watched most of the first series. Added it to my que recently thinking I
might some day watch it all.

At one time I was paying close to $140 a month to DISH. Now my DISH bill is more like
$70 to $75 a month.

My guess is, the satelite and cable companies are losing a lot of business due to companies
like netflix and the internet.

Well, I don't know much about where you can watch the shows and movies online. I know
there are some like Bittorrent but I am not familiar with it and I think it's illegal. I wouldn't
want to do anything illegal and lose my internet service or some such as that. I have watched
a movie or two on youtube. Also it's been a long time but I have watched some free old shows
on hulu.

I have a Roku box and I am freely subscribed to a boat load of channels. Only thing is many
of those have ads.

Here Netflix was introduced only about 2 years ago and knowing it's reputation in the US I said to give it a try and subscribed for a month at £5/month and it was totally rubbish , they had a few dozen old british films and a few old tv series . Didn't watch any of them and after the first month I couldn't be bothered to renew the subscription .

I don't have a clue if those websites that stream movies/series online are legal or illegal but I presume if it's already out there for everyone to watch I guess it's legal. What I usually do is google the movie or series and add the phrase watch online at the end of the search query and most times I find something working good in the first 2 pages of results.

Bittorrent and similar websites are highly illegal yes .

There are a lot of programs such as Sons of Anarchy that are listed in Netflix streaming.
Usually they stay just one season behind. Even Breaking Bad is in the Netflix streaming.
In fact, most of the BreakingBad series, I watched on netflix. AMC was out for awhile from
DISH..some sort of argument they were having, over money no doubt and DISH was shipping
free Roku players to their subscribers just so they could watch WalkingDead and BreakingBad.

Netflix also has some of their own series shows and most are for streamers but some are
only to those that also get the dvd subscriptions.

They do have enough variety that it is more than worth it for me.

I have a 'Smart TV' that is still in the box. I guess it may not be too smart by the time I take
it out of the box and hook it up. I'm not sure how much different it will be, if any, then my
other tv's connecting to box's such as Roku.

Its just like any other tv except it has some new programs and lets you do all kind of stuff or at least this is what the guy that sold me the tv told me. To be honest it's just a normal tv with bits added and renamed "Smart" but it's not that smart , took me ages to connect my xbox and bluray player :lol:

That's what I figured. I wanted a tv for another room and was trying to decide on something different,
either a 3d or a smart. I went with the smart. Not a big deal really because the smart was about the
same price as the dumb. :lol:

Yes of course you can join this topic. I like all those old shows too.

Just the other night, I watched one if not the first, Bonanza show. On netflix there is a program
called the Best of Bonanza and I think there is only 4 shows in that one. I have only watched the
first one. All the Cartwright's were in it. It was about a land owner that was crippled and he had
his son run his land and the son was getting dirty advice from a big shot mining land owner that
just wanted to ruin the land. I did remember it as I watched it. I probably saw it as a kid back in
the 60's. I thought it was so strange tho.....that even way back then, we really were thinking
about the land and that we should protect it and not going mining.

I also have Andy Griffin in my Netflix que and have watched some of those.

I get RawHide and Lucy on MeTV some times. I record the HoneyMooners on MeTV but you know,
they really did not make many of the HoneyMooner shows.

BreakingBad, ended sort of like I thought it would. I thought a good ending would be to do
something like a Bonnie and Clyde ending and I be, that is what they did, sort of.

I do wish it would have lasted a few more seasons. Oh well.

I didn't think about you would be watching it quite a few hours later than I.
It's a good thing I did not share more about it or I could have spoiled it for you.

Well, I guess there is many different types of endings it could have had. In fact, I watched a few
minutes of the talk show that follows it, and they said they came up with a variety of endings but
went with what they did go with.

Also I thought he might just die in the cabin. He was at the 'breaking' point in regards to his cancer.
Had supposedly lost a huge amount of weight.

For a moment, I thought Jesse might wreck the car and die.

I think it should have been a two hour finale with some happenings after Walt was dead.
Such as Jesse finding the money and loading it up, leaving town.
Such as Walts wife making the deal with the cops using the lotto ticket.
Such as Walts son turning 18 and receiving 9 million dollars.

However, maybe it will sort of pick up where it left off, if they do come out with a spin off.

I've read your post this morning before watching the episode and stopped as soon as I've seen "BreakingBad, ended sort of like.." :lol: I would of been fine anyhow you didn't give away anything ;)

Don't know about the spin off I think will be only about Saul and his life before he met Walt but who knows, it's produced by the same team that did Breaking Bad and they might pick up where they left off.

As soon as it finished all I could think was where is the money. I have a feeling that we have to watch the new show to find out that :shock:

Jessie took off as fast as he can and he has an upcoming movie "Need For Speed". :lol:

Breaking Bad, one of the best drama!


Off topic

Dexter also ended this month.

The IT Crowd ends too.
