This is a post outlining how I got into Breaking Bad….
This was one of my discoveries which when I asked around it became clear that I potentially onto a winner!
Every now & again I’ll happily spend an hour or so with a glass of wine just searching away in Google for hidden TV gems that I may have missed.
Such phrases as ‘Best TV Dramas’, ‘TV Shows like The Sopranos’, ‘Is there anything as good as The Wire’ etc etc…..I can spend ages.
Then I spend time just as long searching the resulting articles & then checking them in IMDB.
I have come across loads of series this way.
The other is to spend time in Amazon looking at all the ‘Lists’ that people have made within the category of ‘TV & Film’. Here you’ll find loads of personal Top 10′s from people & I’ll often stumble across something that I’ve not heard of.
So this was how I stumbled across Breaking Bad. In fact I stumbled across some Breaking Bad Quotes and wondered where they had come from.
As it turned out, they were quotes from one of the main characters – Jesse Pinkman:
I then started to ask around generally & it was one of those programmes that a lot of people had heard about, had heard it was good….but at the time (this is a few yrs back now), not that many people I knew had seen.
Anyway, that was my cue to give it a go.
And boy was I happy I did!
I have been pushing it onto whoever will listen to me!…..& also onto those who won’t for that matter.
It was a similar situation that got me into The Sopranos actually. I heard somebody quote Tony Soprano when I was in a bar & inquired what it was from & was another TV show that once in, I never looked back!!
I was so gutted that James Gandolfini passed away recently, he & his famous character Tony, were truly a TV great!
