Who is ready? It's on my All Timer list. Dropping in from time to time this week during the marathon just cements it for me. Has any show been able to get you so invested in more despicable characters? Maybe The Sopranos. But since that show's focus was on an organized crime family the rotten-to-the-core wasn't as shocking as it is on BB. Walter was a HS teacher; Jesse was a small-time dealer/junkie; Skyler was a regular Jane. Aside from Walter Jr. and maybe Marie (and she has plenty of non-felonious flaws) everyone was consistently evil to some degree. Practically every character challenges the viewer. There isn't a virtuous one among them. Even Hank, who despite being "the law" is so obscenely jerky that you can justify the bad guys winning. And Mike? Man, what they did with him throughout the show was incredible. And the supporting characters, while around for some tension-reducing moments like inane high conversations about video games also serve plenty of utility. Can't wait.
