    After successfully killing Gus Fring (Giancarlo Esposito) following a long feud, Walter White (Bryan Cranston) decides it's time he took over the local meth business.

Meanwhile, their criminal crew gains two new allies: a corrupt businesswoman (Laura Fraser) who can provide them with distribution and a pest-control employee (Jesse Plemons) who helps out with a crucial heist. ~ Jack Rodgers

      I love this show!!! Mostly because it reveals the human side of us all---the once authentic protagonist acting only on behalf of his family, becomes the antagonist acting on behalf of his medical diagnosis and his own missed opportunites. Yet, he still behaves as if to procure for his family a legacy that will sustain his family in his absence. And that is where his motivation changes. Knowing he has already provided monetary susbstinance for his family to employ after his demise, he becomes Heisenberg, becomes enraptured with his past failings---i.e. college days---and then seeks to retribute and reclaim what his life was supposed to be about. He siezes the opportunity to become what he believes he was destined to become: A talented visonary destined to change the world--and become rich, thus safe. Mr. White, the ordinary, struggling, honest high-school professor, seizes the opportunity to gain cash, alot of cash, to beset his previous acknowlegement of financial failure, despite his academic and intellectual prowess---because he knows, as all of our society knows---that security is based on monetary acheivements--not scholary ones. Sad. Sad that this falecsy is true---in our culture we verbally promote the learnings and study of chemistry, mathematics, sociology, and art, but---none of us in the business of business will ever acknowlege these proficiencies of knowledge unless we can find a way to make a buck of it. Hence, it is totally natural that Mr. White became Heisenburg. Mr. White became a murderer, a liar, a cheat, a monster... not because he was one to begin with, but became one because he desired the American dream: Recognized for his intellect, knowledge, and his love for his family. Walter White is a profile of us all. He is not the villian so much as he is the villian in all of us who dare to venture beyond the barriers that prevent us all from becoming what we were promised, and were lied to about: Recognition for our efforts, security for our family, and acknowlegment of the work we displayed our entire lives. This show is extraordinary in revealing this. And I beleive this is why so many of us tout its excellence---not because it is purley great writing, great acting, or great profiling (which it is all of these things) but because it strikes a cord in every American human being that what we we told, what we were promoted to become, is not what is truly wanted, admired, or desired: Money and power. Sad but true.

      Epic End to an Epic Drama TV Series

      I got into watching Breaking Bad a few years back on Netflix because I kind of heard that it was a pretty good show to check out. What an understatement. After binge-watching 5 episodes to see if it was really any good (I never can watch TV that long), I had to get my boyfriend to watch it with me. At first, he was kind of watching while browsing on his laptop, then a couple episodes in, he was paying more attention, and pretty soon, IT WAS ALL WE WATCHED! So intense, couldn't stop! Stayed up til 3am! I always loved the fact that every character who ever appeared, no matter how minor, was actually significant and memorable. Almost everything became iconic, sounds, objects, scenes, locations, quotations. The final episodes never lost that momentum. After watching the second to last episode, and seeing that epic tie-back to the first season, we couldn't stop theorizing what was going to happen. That was the longest week ever til the series finale. Even though so many TV series can be streamed now, I had to get these blu-rays to be part of my permanent collection. If you are considering getting Breaking Bad, I recommend waiting til around Black Friday after Thanksgiving. Many places, including Best Buy, seem to offer them on sale for an insanely great price.

      Great show, expensive discs

      If you're a fan of Breaking Bad and didn't get to see these episodes live, you are going to either buy these discs, buy the episodes on iTunes, or wait a year until Netflix starts to stream it. The resolution and sound are what you expect from Blu-ray, the best you can get right now before 4K becomes widespread. This is the second of two DVD sets comprising the last season of the show. They call this "The Final Season", but it was actually a continuation of the first 8 episodes of Season 5, just shown about a year later on TV. There are the usual commentary tracks, behind the scenes, and an assortment of extra features for the hardcore fan. This is what you'd expect from a TV DVD series, but $34.99 for 8 episodes is a bit outrageous. It's irritating that AMC broke the last season into 2 parts, meaning you have to buy 2 DVDs for almost $75 just to get a total of 16 episodes, when the other 4 seasons were all 13 episodes for $39.99 each when they first came out. I was pretty much forced to buy both disc sets for Season 5, since I already had the first 4 seasons in my collection. Guess they had to milk this cash cow as much as they could at the end!

      This is it. The final season to Breaking Bad, my favorite show, and it's phenomenal. Walt tries to adjust to a normal life, now out of the meth business, but his brother in law Hank causes things to go awry. These final episodes are all amazing, as tensions rise and rise. Everything great about Breaking Bad is front and center in this final season - the acting, the suspense, the character arcs, the story. Things change between Walt and Jesse, and Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul, as always, portray these characters wonderfully. Character arcs are wrapped up, along with many plot details, leaving fans with a sense of awe and closure. But just like past seasons on the show, you don't know what could happen next. Every episode is great, and like I said before, things are just wrapped up so well. This is just a wonderful ending to a wonderful show.

      Spoiler Alert: The action and suspense continue as Walt has made his transformation from mild mannered high school chemistry teacher to full on drug king-pin. Along with Jesse, Mike, and some other unsavory characters you'll meet along the way, Walt makes his attempt to set up and run a drug operation as or more successful than that of Gus Fring's. But like anything that involves Walter White, there are bound to be a few mishaps and murders along the way. In many ways I believe this fifth season of Breaking Bad may be the best (although season four was top notch as well). Plot points and character arcs begin to come to a close and although not all questions are answered at the end of this season, we really begin to understand why Mike calls Walt a "ticking time bomb."

      Amazing Show Plus Great Extras

      My wife and I streamed this series for a while on Netflix, but one day I picked up Season 2 on DVD at Best Buy. I love all the extra features. We usually watch an episode and then watch the "Behind the Scenes" features where they explain what was going on with the characters, the symbolism and imagery, and the making of the episode. I also enjoy the gag reel, with outtakes that show just how much fun the actors were having on the set. This DVD set of Season 5 is great, with two extra features for each episode and commentary tracks so you can re-watch an episode while the actors, director, and writers are having fun discussing it and joking around. It's MUCH better than just streaming the shows.

      The final season of an amazing show

      Hopefully if you are reading this and are interesting in getting the last season on blu-ray that you have already seen seasons 1-5. If so, then you know just how great this series has been and boy does it not disappoint in its last season! While I will not obviously tell you what happens in the season, I will say that is worth getting in every fashion. It comes with all the episodes, as well as a digital copy, and a special mythbusters episode dealing with breaking bad. The ONLY thing that i wish this came with is the documentary that comes with buying the entire series, as it includes the finale table read and other pieces of cool footage/info on the show. Overall, you will not regret purchasing this.
