In Case You Missed It: Breaking Bad Season 3 Re-Premieres Tonight

There are simply some seasons of television that you have to watch in order to call yourself a TV junkie—Season 1 of Lost, Season 4 of The Wire, Season 1 of Battlestar Galactica, Season 2 of Arrested Development, etc.—so get ready to check off one of the best. Starting tonight and continuing for the next several Wednesdays, AMC is rerunning the third season of Breaking Bad, two episodes at a time.

The high quality of Breaking Bad's third season is beyond opinion, so rare that I simply can't fathom someone not enjoying it. Breaking Bad Season 3 is the first thing I suggest when someone asks me what TV they should watch, and TV.com users appear to agree: the third season has an average user score of 9.39, compared to Lost Season 1's 9.22 (a site favorite). Breaking Bad's score is actually weighed down by a very controversial episode, "Fly," which was a brilliant art-house departure from what fans were used to. Other than that, there are two episodes scored 9.7, and two more—the final episodes of the season—that are scored an astounding 9.8. When almost 400 people (as of this morning) agree to score an episode (in this case, "Half Measures") a 9.8, it's because of more than a loyal fan base.

AMC is airing the reruns at the God-awful hour of 11:30pm through 1:30am, so set your DVRs accordingly and wear an extra tight hat to keep your brain from exploding all over the place. And just to think, if AMC had kept the show on schedule, Season 4 would be starting in about a month. As it stands, we're looking at a summer return. Bummer.

Season 4 won't premiere until July, so the Season 3 DVD probably won't come out until June to promote that 4th season. I hate the wait, too! Just make sure you all watch live so this brilliant show survives to Season 5!

I see..so those of us that already love the show and were anticipating season 4 beginning sometime soon get to instead wait around while the rest of the masses catch up? Great....
