What's Breaking Bad about? My wife and I just starting watching Reaper again. It's the little quips in this show that make it fun. It's the story of a young adult whose parents sold his soul to the devil before he was born and as repayment he's a bounty hunter for the devil. The description makes it sound much more sci-fi and action than it really is. If I were to categorize it, I'd say it's a comedy. Kevin Smith is credited as creative consultant and this series is soaked with his comedy.
I whole-heartedly agree that it's nice to have well scripted shows return.
