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.

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?! :)

Greetings from Cherrapunji --A heart shaped rock and other true stories (post 28)

We began our day with a trek down the mountains, through the pine forests. We didn't have a guide. Satish and I decided to explore the path on our own. It was slippery in many places, and we had to be certain of our footing, else we would have tumbled down. Tall coniferous trees formed dense canopies, through which sunlight couldn't trickle down. Ferns, spider-webs, mushrooms and pine-cones dotted the path. It was dark, damp, green and oh so pure. We walked down slowly, and a magnificent sight greeted us. I am sharing a picture I clicked.


We climbed back, contented happy souls. We found a vantage point from where we had a view of this very lake that we had trekked down to. I stood there and made a painting.


After breakfast, we left forCherrapunjee.

Just before we reached Cherrapunjee, we took a diversion went to The Garden of Caves in Laitmawsiang. The sight is mesmerising, stunning, fascinating. It is a must-do if you ever visit North-East. The main attraction is the natural…

Meghalya --kissed by the clouds (post 26)

Greetings from Meghalaya. True to it's name, it is a place kissed by the clouds. As I type this, from my picture window, the rain falls gently outside making a pitter-patter sound. It feels like I am living inside a poem.

We drove from Shillong to Mawlynnong, which has earned the moniker of Asia's cleanest village. The drive itself was arduous, as the mountain roads are terrible. Since I ave been so many times to the Western ghats in South India, this just seemed like a poor cousin in comparison. The roads in South India are much much better. After a bone-rattling torturous car ride, we arrived tired and hungry. We ate at a small restaurant (sticky rice, watery dal and some kind of delicious chutney made of onion, tomato and green chillies loosely pounded). Then we began our walk to see the living root bridges.

That was AMAZING. It is a sight worth seeing. I felt the forests in Avatar movie had come alive from the sets and had been resurrected here. I couldn't help marve…
