You won't get any argument from me .. as a 3 time complete series watcher and a proud owner of the "Barrel" BD set, the sheer re-watch factor in and of itself is amazing for me in any show, since I'm usually a one and done viewer ..


Yet, there is a pretty good faction out there that either has no interest in the show, tried it and did not like it, etc ..


BB is Gilligan's opus, his masterwork .. and unlikely to ever be repeated .. it's almost like a classic rock song from the 1970's .. if you are a fan, it stays with you ..


The reason, IMO, it resonates so deep for some of us is : Ordinary schlub in an ordinary house, with an ordinary job, an ordinary family, living in an ordinary town takes this incredible journey, morphing all along the way .. we don't know whether to cheer for Walter or to boo .. all we know is he is the anti-Hero, the guy that really took charge not only against the Establishment but the Cartel .. and in the end, yes, he lost, but he went out under his own terms .. when I first viewed the final episode, I hosted a few folks in my Home Theater and as "Baby Blue" played, there was hardly a guy in the room that was not literally glued to the screen and a couple choked up some .. me included .. and we're beer drinkin', baseball lovin', American Vets .. I think the show appeals to men more so than women, but that's just a guess ..


Finally ... BSG was a great show .. I've watched it more than once myself and I believe it is, so far anyway, the best TV SciFi .. and, being a Vet helps that belief ..


We are in a time of some great TV, and at my age, I'm glad to have the buffet laid out .. like Crazy Earl said in "Full Metal Jacket" .. These are great days we're living, bros ...

Only one I had trouble with was Madame President, but that goes back to Dances w/Wolves and her trying to spit out "Dun...dun..duh..Dunbar". So bad.

I may watch it for the third time simply because I miss Walter.

Perhaps I misremembered.

Lizard Lick Towing is the best thing ever on TV, I have spoken.

I loved the "Wire" but what makes "Breaking Bad" a notch above is there's not one bad episode. How Gilligan could write 6 years with not one bad one is why its probably the best ever.

These are just my opinions.
