Anyone watch either of these 2 new shows on amc?

Break Bad (v.) 1. to challenge convention 2. to defy authority 3. to raise hell

Chemistry: the study of change. Meet Walter White, a high school chemistry teacher sleepwalking through life when, boom, a terminal diagnosis changes everything. Liberates him. Empowers him to use his chemistry skills anew: to man a rolling drug lab and finance the future for his struggling family. It's an uncontrolled experiment with the American dream. And it finally wakes him up. Breaking Bad: Change the Equation.

you can watch the first 2 shows online


Mad Men


The Setting: In 1960, advertising agencies were an all-powerful influence on the masses. Personal and professional manipulation and sexual exploits defined the workplace and closed the deals. The high profile Sterling Cooper Advertising Agency created advertising campaigns from cigarettes to political candidates -- better than anyone. It was a time of great ferment. Women had barely begun to come into their own. Librium and birth control were on the move. Ethics in the workplace, smoke-free environments, sexual harassment and ethnic diversity were workshops of the future.
The Premise: The series depicts the sexual exploits and social mores of this most innovative yet ruthless profession, while taking an unflinching look at the ad-men who shaped the hopes and dreams of Americans on a daily basis.
The Players: The series revolves around the conflicted world of Don Draper (Hamm), the biggest ad man (and ladies man) in the business, and his colleagues at the Sterling Cooper Advertising Agency. As Don makes the plays in the boardroom and the bedroom, he struggles to stay a step ahead of the rapidly changing times and the young executives nipping at his heels. The series also depicts authentically the roles of men and women in this era while exploring the true human nature beneath the guise of 1960 traditional family values.

Breaking Bad is awesome.  I live in the land of tweekers/junkies so it's entertaining and somewhat realistic from what I've seen so far.  I couldn't believe the scene with the bathtub and hydrofluoric acid... Wow!  I missed the second half of episode three last night, I wonder what happened to Crazy 8?

Crazy 8 died. Walter went upstairs and put the plate together that he broke when Walter fell down the stairs. He noticed a large piece of the plate missing. Walter realized what he had to do to protect his family, so he strangled Crazy 8 with the bicycle lock.

Awesome.  I thought Walter was gonna back out on the coin toss but he did it.  Sweet.  I'm stoked for next weeks episode.  I caught the very last scene and it looks like he's gonna tell his wife about the cancer... 

Weeds is pretty good too.  Mary-Louise Parker is pretty hot for an older woman, I'd totally hit that!  Her brick dance wasn't the best but it was still pretty good.

Hey Dan,

I saw the entire first season on Mad Men, it was on some channel on the west coast, I don't remember which because I only have basic cable.  I kind of liked the show but was supposed to because, I was in the advertising business for about 10 or more years.  Have the best day
