    Hey there,

    usually people write, speak, express their opinion as soon as they dislike something. If something is good usually you don't hear anything.
    I just wanted to "break" this "rule", PLEASE EVERYONE write to amc how much you loved the 7 episodes of BB. Sure I don't know if this would make any difference at all or not... But still, try and just show them...

    It's so **** unbelievable how bad / mediocre shows get new season after season (CSI e.g.) or get picked up for a season 2 immediatly (like Dirty Sexy Money) and really great, great stuff like BB (or Dirt, The Riches etc) still have to fear not to get renewed...

    Anyway, so go tell em.

    It won't make any difference. If networks cared about anything more than money we wouldn't have to fear for this show. You really think they're going to say "well Breaking Bad's ratings aren't good, so I was going to cancel it, but then a few people emailed in and said how much they love the show so I guess I'll keep it on just for them"? Even watching the show won't make any difference unless you have a neilsen box. The one and only thing you can do to help the show is try and get people who have neilsen boxes to watch it (and buy the DVDs if they get released).
