Synopsis


Overwhelmed with guilt after his actions indirectly led to two airplanes crashing into each other, Walter White (Bryan Cranston) is ready to leave the meth business behind for good. But Gus Fring (Giancarlo Esposito), a drug kingpin who uses a fast-food business as a front, gives him an offer he can't refuse: $3 million for three months of work. Little does Walt know that he's also being used as a pawn in a war between Gus and a Mexican cartel. Cranston and co-star Aaron Paul both won Emmys for their work this season; it was Cranston's third consecutive win for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series. ~ Jack Rodgers

    Season 3 is Pure Genius! (No Spoilers)

    Posted
    iknowmyhorror

    Breaking Bad – Season Three is the best season so far. It has some of the best performances of the series so far and shows just why it has received six Emmy Awards. This season is full of shock and awe with plenty of truly heart breaking and heart throbbing scenes. Breaking Bad is one of the most brilliant and realistic dramas on television, and possibly ever. Even the scenes that could be a bit exaggerated are done in such a subtle and realistic way that you never label it as “this could never happen.” An extraordinary season that pushes the limits even further and lets you know just how far they are willing to go with their characters and storytelling. As for the special features, there are so many that I was overwhelmed at first. It is has been a long time since I have seen so many great special features loaded into one single season set. One of the most amazing things (in my opinion) is that there is audio commentary on 9 whole episodes. The audio commentary includes series creator Vince Gilligan, Bryan Cranston, Aaron Paul, Anna Gunn, and many more cast members and writers/producers. Most hour-long dramas might give 2-3 episode commentaries for a 22-episode season. Breaking Bad gives 9 out of 13 episodes audio commentary, which is very interesting and informative for any fan. The Gag-Reel is also very hilarious. There is also plenty of “behind-the-scenes” features. The deleted & unused footage is also interesting because it was only cut for time, so it all has a purpose to the show. As usual, some uncensored episodes exist on this set like the previous ones. The only real “uncensored” parts is there are F-bombs dropped once or twice, something that obviously could not air on basic cable. To sum it all up, any true fan of this show will adore this season 3 set and should buy it.

    The plot thickens...

    What's not to like about Breaking Bad season three? The plot continues to thicken, as Jesse and Walter get in too deep with Gus Fring and his cohorts, and as Hank develops more and more of an obsession with bringing the legendary "Heisenberg" to justice. Signs of strain are starting to show in the ever-evolving relationship between Walter and Jesse as well. Throughout the series, they have an almost love/hate relationship, as well a loyalty on par with the kind that is usually reserved for family. Walter has become somewhat of a father figure to Jesse, albeit a dysfunctional one. Looking bad at the series as a whole, (and without giving any spoilers) season three is somewhat of a turning point in the development of all the main characters, and we see sides of each of them that take on a darker tone than in seasons one and two. Season three is not as "light" as seasons one and two, and from this point on, the series definitely has a heavier feel. It definitely does not glorify meth use or involvement in the drug industry, like it might have come close to doing in the first two seasons. Walter's life starts to unravel, as more and more of his decisions give rise to consequences that eventually put a wedge between himself and the family he is trying to "save". Excellent series and worth getting on blu-ray. *****Regarding the blu-ray itself, for some reason, seasons 1 through 3 have much longer load times than seasons 4 through the final season. At first I thought there was a glitch, but I think it's actually an issue with the BD Live. If you turn off your connection to the internet, it will actually load faster. Needless to say, it will eventually load either way.

    Season 3 Takes Breaking Bad to Another Level

    Just when you thought the situation was complicated enough, along come Gus and Mike, possibly the two most compelling characters in the entire series. The battle of wits between Gus and Heisenberg takes this series to another level. Nothing else on television can compare to this show for intrigue, suspense, and of course, the highest standard of writing, directing, and acting. Blu-ray is the only way to go. This first-rate show deserves viewing on the best format available. Highest recommendation!

    This is one of those shows that will live on forever. From the very first episode I was hooked and watched until the end. Breaking Bad is the best tv drama in years, and perhaps ever! If you haven't watched it it is a must see. If you have seen it you know what everyone is talking about. Newbie to the series or dedicated fan this disc is a must own.

    I didn't watch the series when it was originally on. But I thought I'd check out what all the buzz was about. Wow, I LOVE this show. I've only seen a few episodes of Season 3, but so far it's as good as the first 2 seasons. It gets better as it goes on, because you start identifying with the characters as you get to know them better.

    Midway through the series and we are as much addicted to the series as Walt and Jessie's customers are to there product. While the tension continuously builds and Walt's world is in serious jeopardy, and just when we run out of nails to bite, we gat a slight reprieve with the humorous "Fly" episode. Vince Gilligan is a genius.

    This is a series that just keeps getting better and better each season. I was always told that the 3rd season is when it really starts getting good, but although I can kind of see why people have said that, I thought the first 2 seasons were really good too. Anyway, if you like the show, this season won't disappoint.

    I started watching Breaking Bad when my children told me it was good. I am in my 60's and didn't think I would like it because it involved drugs. It was so good my husband and I would stay up late watching one episode after another. We could not wait until the next season came out.
