In the current tv world where it seems mediocrity reigns supreme, Breaking Bad is a sorely needed breath of fresh air. We are stuck with TV channels comprised of brainless reality shows and anyone can get a tv show with the right connections (i.e., a leaked sextape or being someone's sister) and then along comes Breaking Bad. What can I say? This is the best television drama I think I've ever seen. Intelligent and original. One can only hope that here lies the future of television and not in the mindless drivel they've been giving us. Cranston is a first rate actor and his Walter White is complex and likeable even as a predominantly bad guy. It's a fascinating ride you're on as you watch Walter lose his soul. The rest of the cast is also impressive with the two standouts being Aaron Paul as Pinkman and the young man with Cerebral Palsy playing Walter, Jr. This show is an absolute must see and is addictive from start to finish. First series I've ever watched where the ending was just painful because you didn't want it to end.
If you're looking at this item, it means you've already heard about Breaking Bad. We binge watched the heck out of this series and it will put you through a range of emotions from hilarity, to sitting on the edge of your seat chewing on your viewing buddy's fingernails waiting to see what happens next.
It's impossible to over-hype this show. Buy it and see for yourself.
When I say Breaking Bad is one of the GREATEST shows EVER to grace a TV, trust that it is truth. Do yourself a favor and just buy the complete box-set if you can afford it. I promise you're in for a action-packed, darkly comedic and high drama, internal morality battle of a treat! If I were to say anything more it would give this awesome show away, so just get to watchin' already.
I bought this series cause I've heard so many great things about it. Plus it was on sale so it was a bargain. I love the fact how it shows a regular Joe becoming a guy not to mess with. How life didn't go the way it was suppose to but you finally awake to do something about it.
The story starts off slow, but I think that was intended. There are a few points where you are almost turned off by the realistic grotesqueness of the scene you are watching. In the end you are invested in the characters and feel like you care about what happens to them.
I would recommend this to a friend
Rating 4 out of 5 stars with 1 review
Good but a bit slow moving
Everyone kept telling me I have to watch Breaking Bad because it was so great so I got it and started it watching it. After everyone's recommendations I expected to be amazed. However, after watching other series like Dexter and other Showtime series I found Breaking Bad to be slow moving and a bit boring at times. All-in-all it's worth watching and the overall plot is good but it takes awhile to get into it and you have to watch all the seasons to get the full plot.
Good show but maybe it was just built up too much and I expected more.
