I binge-watched the hell out of Breaking Bad.
I stayed up way too late during the Christmas break when I shouldn't have.
Now I am sometimes find myself muttering, "Yo, yo, yo."
It's my colleague Joe's fault.
Like Joe, I dislike wasting time. I am "that guy" who powers up Netflix and watches one or two episodes of a series and then bails.
Prior to experiencing Breaking Bad, I considered the program to be a knuckle-dragging series about someone selling Meth. I was wrong on so many levels.
Vince Gilligan is a story-telling genius. Every Breaking Bad character is carefully woven into the story for a purpose. Blink an eye and you will miss something essential. Despite the characters making a drug that destroys so many lives, I found myself rooting for Walt, his family, Jesse, and Mike.
The 32nd episode in particular, "Half Measures", struck a nerve with me.
