Some fans complained when they realized that buying a "season pass" to download the fifth season of the TV show Breaking Bad only entitles them to download the first half of the fifth season. One viewer has taken this a step further, suing Apple. Everyone's calling the 8 episodes from last year and the 8 from this year "season 5" -- and those ordering it on iTunes assumed all 16 episodes were part of the season pass. A doctor from Ohio is serving as the plaintiff in a class action for "similarly situated" customers who subscribed to the show through iTunes.
