My name is Walter Hartwell White. I live at 308 Negra Arroyo Lane, Albuquerque, New Mexico. 87104. To all law enforcement entities, this is not an admission of guilt. I am speaking to my family now.

Walter H. White:
Skyler, you are the love of my life, I hope you know that. Walter junior, you're my big man. There are... there are going to be some things, things that you'll come to learn about me in the next few days. I just want you to know that, no matter how it may look...

So, yeah. First time watching a Breaking Bad episode.
Now, I have heard of this show before seeing it, but I never thought of seeing it. But then a friend of mine told me how great this show was, so I have decided to check it out, but wasn't really hasty about it- I don't know the idea for the show didn't sound like my cup of tea, but the universal acclaim and recommendations brought me to indeed give it a shot.
So here I am, after I watched the first episode. Well, I think it was pretty interesting- again, it's a first episode and like every great show it will probably take time to actually get used to the characters and getting to know them- but so far the characters look pretty interesting and the acting in my opinion is superb.
Now, again, I have only watched this episode so far, so I have no idea at all at where it's going to go. But am I looking forward to seeing the next episode? Sure.
Hopefully I will enjoy this show, and considering it's acclaim, it is very likely I will.
Now, rating for just the first episode without watching the entire thing is not very accurate- but the reason that I do give it a 9/10 is because it IS interesting, it DOES seem to have interesting characters at dramatic situations and by the acclaim, I assume it keeps all the promises it gives it's viewers.
So, I enjoyed it and looking forward to seeing the next episode 9/10.
