Breaking Bad ! (blog marathon post 21)

Television is something I detest. Like  Roald Dahl says

Television - Poem by Roald Dahl

The most important thing we've learned,
So far as children are concerned,
Is never, NEVER, NEVER let
Them near your television set --
Or better still, just don't install
The idiotic thing at all.
In almost every house we've been,
We've watched them gaping at the screen.
They loll and slop and lounge about,
And stare until their eyes pop out.
(Last week in someone's place we saw
A dozen eyeballs on the floor.)
They sit and stare and stare and sit
Until they're hypnotised by it,
Until they're absolutely drunk
With all that shocking ghastly junk.

Read the whole poem here


I know many who are addicted to TV series, especially some who used to be addicted to Friends. (They watch it over and over again). I haven't seen a single episode of friends. Sure, i can talk about it, as I read about it, but I simply do not have the patience to sit through an episode.
Disclaimer: I have nothing against those who watch Friends and who love it! 

However, there are two shows that I watched fully. One is Band of Brothers and the other,is Breaking Bad.

Just finished wacthing all five seasons, of Breaking Bad, the last three in the final season, I watched back to back. I just couldn't budge. It was a great story.

If you have seen it, tell me what you liked about it, who is your favourite charatcer, and what did it make you conclude.
If you haven't seen it, go watch!

Till tomorrow!
Adios!

  2. Television is a real time waster of life, but some shows are really good, once in a while it's good to watch.

  3. Friends has been one of my most favorite shows of all time. It's the bond between each one of them and of course the comedy which makes me want to keep watching more and more of its old episodes. Thanks for mentioning about the two TV shows which you watch. Never heard of them before. Shall definitely check it out. Thanks!

  4. That's sad what you said about Friends, it's one of the best show ever, it's even better than Breaking Bad (Although I loved that too), a few years back I also got myself into finishing series to series in a week but even at that point of time, I didn't watch tv, infact we don't have a TV in home anymore :D Just got a good internet connection, people watch youtube sometimes but still, it's way better than what really happens when you do have a TV. I would recommend that you give Friend series a try, you won't regret it. Also How I met your mother is good one, at the end of each episode, you will find something useful to apply in your life. Now coming to the favorite character in Breaking bad :D, I really used to hate that guy named Jesse Pinkman (I guess this is the right name), but later on, i started liking him very much, he's a great character and soul of the series :D

    1. Hey Iqbal---I don't have anything against people who watch Friends! Personally, not for me. I have watched a few episodes of two and a half men.
      Friends is rated 9 on imdb. Breaking bad is rated 9.5
      Different strokes for different folks, I guess!

      Why did you hate Jesse?! :)
