Netflix to the rescue for UK Breaking Bad fans

No Comments 06 August 2013

If you’re anything like us here at New TV Shows you’ve got a seat edge-shaped ridge in your backside 11 months in the making.

Yes, we’ve been waiting since September 2012 to find out what fate lies ahead for Walter White, Jesse Pinkman and the rest. AMC’s magnificent drama Breaking Bad returns for its final eight episodes next week. In the US, at least. Who knows when it will hit traditional TV this side of the Atlantic, if ever.

But don’t fear, UK-based fans: Netflix has your back. Each of the episodes in this final run will be available on Netflix the day after airing in the USA. So cancel your plans for this coming Monday evening because you’ve got a date with Hank Schrader: Meth Detective and a big bag of popcorn.
