I'm looking for a good tv show with a long story arc that spans multiple seasons and has a great finale. The catch is I'd like something I can watch with my kids, ages 12-17, so that rules out most of the cable fare, like Breaking Bad, The Wire, The Sopranos or The Shield. It need not be a gritty cop drama, of course.

Hello, people of 2013! I come from 2008, where my partner and I have been enjoying the first season of Breaking Bad! I am in search of smart, well-written recaps of the show. [more inside]

I don't have cable or the ability to stream live TV, but I watched the first two seasons of Breaking Bad on DVD and have been following a lot of info about it via various podcasts and have my own predictions. Tonight during the series finale, I'd like to follow the show plot-point-by-plot-point live during the show. Are there any twitter feeds that are likely to do this? Spoilers are A-OK and expected and desired. Nothing held back. Who should I be following tonight? Also, what time does it start? (I'm in the Central Time Zone US.)

Anybody in the Phoenix, AZ area know of a bar or similar locale that will be showing the breaking bad finale when it airs tomorrow? I don't have any way to watch it at home, and I thought it would be fun to watch it with other people, too. I've googled, but only come up with references to the "phoenix" episode... I also figure places showing it might be nervous to publicize?

As a meth addict who hasn't used in 10+ years I've been avoiding watching Breaking Bad. I have seen clips and references to it but I'd like to watch the show because I hear is how great it is and for the most part I'm sure I'd love it. [more inside]

I want to get something like this cake
for my husband's birthday on September 20th, which happily coincides with the second to last episode weekend. Is there a bakery in NYC that will do this for me?

Are there any bars / cafes / parking lots in the Los Angeles area showing Breaking Bad tonight? The usual googling hit a dead end.

I watched the first three episodes of Breaking Bad. The premise is interesting to me, but it was too violent for my taste. I was surprised it had a 12+ rating where I live, usually those shows are totally fine for me. I want to give Breaking Bad a chance (I like the premise and the person I'm watching it with does like the show so far) but not if it keeps going on like this, where the main characters keep killing people. Of course I understand that in a series about drug dealing people are going to die, so I guess I'm mainly concerned about the frequency, the way it goes, and the way it's handled. Also, at the moment I feel that nobody is really likeable on the show. Would like to hear if other people who felt the same way after the first few episodes think I should keep watching.

Recommend me some media featuring a duo with compelling yet platonic chemistry -- like Danes/Patinkin on Homeland or Cranston/Paul on Breaking Bad. [more inside]

Have loved Breaking Bad, but it's nearing its end. What are some other high production value TV thrillers should I watch? I like season-long story arcs, suspense, and excellent writing and acting. I love BBC's Sherlock, 24, Dexter, The Sopranos, and Game of Thrones.

Breaking Bad fans: Where are your favorite places to discuss and/or obsessively read about Breaking Bad on the internet? What websites/podcasts are doing the best recaps? I'm also interested in being able to pose questions about references to past seasons and that sort of thing, so I can make the most of the last season!
