Default TV Show Marathons (Breaking Bad)!!!

Do you ever watch when one of your favorite shows has
an all day marathon on tv?
I did not become a fan of Breaking Bad until last season and have been watching every show in this, it's final season...and AMC is currently showing all 61 shows starting from the beginning leading up to it's final show this Sunday
By seeing the show from the beginning it really brings into perfect logic how the writers and actors built the story lines and character development
Cable tv appears to be far superior then ABC,NBC & ABC in this endeavor

Yes! This is how how I often get hooked on a show.

I haven't watched Breaking Bad but I hear it is a great show. Not sure if we get that channel in Canada but I will look for the marathon.

I've been meaning to check the HBO ap on my ipad so if all shows are available.

I have never watched an entire marathon but I have become hooked on shows by watching a few hours of a marathon. That's the way I became a fan of The Mentalist.

Netflix has been the game changer....the cable format of 6-8 shows a break for 6-12 months has changed tv viewing patterns that the major networks can't or won't do

The marathon format gives the viewer the "backstory" in one dose...in the case of Breaking Bad it is critical (for those of us who did not view the first few seasons) to understanding how the writers are wrapping up the various story lines and characters..a specific show in the first season explains a major story line in last weeek's next to the last episode...Sunday night's conclusion will probably be the most viewed cable show in history..plus it will launch at least one spinoff with Saul (the creepy lawyer)

I am going to order the complete box set for my old high school chemistry teacher...I have a whole new found respect for him because of Breaking Bad

Venice, I've heard that Breaking Bad is an excellent show, although I've never watched it.

I do agree with you that Netflix has been a game changer, marathons on USA and A&E have resulted in me finding shows that I would not have watched otherwise.

I hope that you enjoy the finale of Breaking Bad.
