This week on Reasonable Discussions: Blah blah blah Breaking Bad blah blah blah blah blah. We can't get enough of the show, as evidenced by our week of interviews devoted to it, and, now, our staff considers the season that was. We also consider the movie that is Real Steel, which topped the box office last weekend, and how low expectations affect your final assessment of a film. In Ask The A.V. Club, a listener wonders what the comedy equivalent of The Wire is, and we close out as usual with Extracurricular Activities.
