    A mild-mannered high-school chemistry teacher learns that he has terminal cancer, and impulsively decides to start cooking crystal meth in order to provide for his family in this nail-biting drama that depicts, as creator Vince Gilligan so memorably put it, a man transforming from "Mr. Chips to Scarface." With possibly only months to live, Walter White (Bryan Cranston) decides to start manufacturing drugs with his former student Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul), but what looks like easy money soon turns into a nightmare as the two men get involved with a kingpin named Tuco Salamanca (Raymond Cruz). ~ Jack Rodgers

      Television at it's best

      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.

      The BEST Drama on TV, maybe of all time

      I have been watching this series live since the beginning. The premise is of a high school Chemistry teacher that gets cancer and worries about how to provide for his family after he dies. The genius is that the chemistry teacher IS a genius who has gotten screwed in life by the company he worked for and coincidentally he is introduced to one his students who deals in drugs. Because of his background, he ends up making meth that is chemically perfect and extremely potent. The first season is not as good as seasons 2-4 because there is no real arc, but it is MUCH better than anything on TV right now and you MUST watch the first season because the show is highly serialized. I have never heard of anyone not liking this series. Get in now before the last part of season 5 airs. YOU WON'T BE DISAPPOINTED.

      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.

      Intriguing Beginning to an All-Time Classic Series

      I stumbled onto season 1/episode 1 by accident and couldn't turn it off. I re-watched it twice and knew this was going to be something special. Still nothing that happened that first season could possibly prepare you for how the show would evolve and eventually become arguably the best television drama ever. Although enjoyable on broadcast TV, the PQ/AQ of the blu-ray set take it to another level. Highly recommended!

      Great show!

      Very serious show , keeps you on the edge of your seat , had to watch whole season as soon as I saw the first episode. So captivating you'll be constantly worried about what's gonna happen to Walt next.Much like the show "Weeds" , someone driven outside of their normal lifestyle due to family and loss , but more intense .

      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.

      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.

      Breaking Bad Season I

      Curious and interested in the radical activities of the show I felt compelled to buy the first 2 sets of DVD's for myself. i have experience in dealing with poisons and felt it was important to learn more about this activity for educational purposes without getting hurt-from home! Drug is really devastating to our lives and our futures, I hope it does discourage people from getting involved.
