I have seen this show!

And enjoyed it too!

Pretty fucked-up show. I think I need to watch all of season one before I start on the next season though. Has there only been one season so far?

There's only been one season so far, and thanks to the writer's strike it was only 7 episodes.

I think you can get them on iTunes...

I just watched the first three episodes of Season 1. It's really, really good.

I've seen two episodes, and loved them both.

My Dad used to live in Albuquerque and I always wondered when someone would recognize it as a profoundly weird, filmic place and set something there. The fake-adobe postwar ranch homes baking themselves into bleached dust, the constant undercurrents of drug trafficking and gang shit, the retired Chicagoans waiting around to die.

Good show.

Weird. I was going to bump this thread today. I watched the first season last week. Really great stuff. Somewhat similar to Dexter - but much better writing, acting and none of incessant winking at the audience that I can't stand. Much darker and funnier, too.

I was going to mention how much I love Jesse and what a great actor he is, but they're all terrific. When Jesse went back to his parent's house it really hit home. Gah.



Totally compelling. Can't wait to watch season two.

Did you guys continue to watch this show?
I just finished the 2nd season and wonder if there might be a 3rd one!?
This TV show is so suspenseful and funny at the same time, wow!
Recommended to all of you!

I just spent the last week binging on the 2nd Season. No TV show has caught my imagination like this since the first two seasons of the Sopranos, only the suspense and plot pacing is even tighter. Every actor is terrific, and the addition of Bob Odenkirk was even better than advertised. Why isn't this the show everyone talks about?

Best show on television. I did feel kind of disappointed with last episode of season two--but that's because the show doesn't ever really pull punches like that. Still, looking forward to the next season.

Bob was yet another incredible addition to an already riveting 2nd season.

I have no idea. I try to get everyone I know into it, but what can one man do?

I can't believe the main actor in this show is the father from Malcolm in the Middle.

That is range.
Life...life...I know it's got its ups and downs.

In the someday, what's that sound.

If I start watching, will I be totally lost because I missed the first two seasons?

Comcast OnDemand is supplying me with the shows I have missed... which would be all of them.

I am watching the s2 finale as I write this, after spending hours and hours watching and re-watching every episode since the pilot in the last few days.

I can't believe I have missed out on this show before the last week or so.

This show is incredible.
