We can blame it on the fact that Homeland season 3 is not on Netflix right now.
Or the fact that we had one free Saturday in the past two months.
Or maybe we just are gluttons for punishment.
Whatever went down, we are knee deep in Breaking Bad and there is no turning back.
I waited until it was all on Netflix before I even suggested it, although it turns out that it would not have mattered as we're only averaging one episode a night these days.
Gone are the nights where we would watch a show until practically dawn. Is it because we're old? Is it because we have jobs we care about? Is it because I cannot watch too much of this show without getting kind of queasy at the yucky bits?
Whatever the reason, while it won't take us five years to watch this, it will probably be well into July before we are done.
And it's good. As long as we stop dropping ATMs on peoples' faces, its going to be a solid, enjoyable experience for everyone.
I need a chaser though. Something funny and light (and preferably half an hour) that I can watch in between particularly brutal episodes to cleanse the palate. Let me know if you have any recommendations.
