'Breaking Bad' in 30 Days*: The Project Begins

I've heard a lot about Breaking Bad over the past few years. Friends have raved about it, Bryan Cranston has won Emmys for it. It's a pretty big deal. Somehow though, I've never watched Breaking Bad. It just kind of slipped through the cracks, something that I feel is a major blind spot in my pop culture vision.

Well, I plan on fixing that now. Season 5 of Breaking Bad launches on July 15. That gives me a month to watch the first four seasons, which total 46 episodes. Doing the math, over the 30 days, I would have to watch 1.53 episodes per day to catch up. Unfortunately, you'll notice the asterisk after the title of this project. I never got around to starting on June 15, so I'm already a day behind, which means I'm going to have to up my Breaking Bad watching to catch up.

I'll keep you posted on my progress. Don't spoil anything for me.
