Loved Bryan Cranston in "Malcolm in the Middle" and love him as Walter. He's a great actor with great range. All of the actors on the show are excellent. This is one of the few shows my husband and I both like! I'm looking forward to the new episodes but will miss this show when it ends.
Well, don't know if it is the best show ever, but that's how I feel after watching the last episode. The first three episodes from season one were slow and had to watch them a couple of times until I got ABSOLUTELY hooked on. Who can rate this show less than 10?
There's never a dull moment in this series. The story-telling is sheer brilliance and I applaud Vince Gilligan and the other writers. The plot-lines in each season are so captivating and really pull you in. The characters are so real and believable. It's interesting... I keep telling people who have never seen it that there aren't quite any "good" guys on the show, it's sort of a show full of bad people. And yet, I have felt sympathy for each one of them. All of them are so complex and layered. The acting too is brilliant. The writers do a thorough job of keeping every detail right. In the end, It an amazing series with no plot holes that will put you on an unpredictable ride begging for more.
Not a dull moment some of the best writing and acting I've seen on TV. It's brilliant how the characters evolve through out the show and challenges. What will an every day human do when faced with survival ? Is asked over and over again. In addition to a great story all the characters are realistic, human and interesting not bone skinny Hollywood figures. I love how the mom gains weight after child birth and through stresses of the time then comes back next season having lost weight. This show is alive and real ! Love it
As many others mentioned it before, it is just awesome. Very good acting mixed with exciting Drama in a very cynic way of fun! I just love it, exspecially the scene when Skylar presents Walter the big pile of money they made!! Just standing there and everyone knew what they were thinking.. just the best.
The one flaw I recognized was given in a prior comment: The germans in the beginning of the 5th season are not speaking german correctly, it is for a german understandable, but not good at all... that is a problem in many tv shows, I dont know about other languages... but doesnt USA have german actors to play such minor roles... like Sandra Bullock, she can speak it quite well^^
Great show, although it stagnates since season 4 in my oppinion. But still definitely watchable. But as a native German: Really ?! This is how you still depict us ? Saw the police guys in episode 05e2 wearing a gestapo leather outfit ? Then the language .. sounds if you take Canadians for a role of an Texan redneck .. sounds weird and is full of semantic and phonetic flaws .. cmon .. there are hundreds of good native speaking german actors around .. so why not keep the professionalism up and hire a couple of those ?
Breaking Bad is not just some meaningless entertainment or boring drama show. In my opinion, it transcends television to become not just a story, but a meaningful story. It is the story of one good man who goes through a bit of a mid-life crisis after learning he has Terminal Cancer. He decides to become a drug producer (he is a chemistry teacher) as he knows it will make him money. From there comes a bumpy - nay, a full out barreling, treacherous out-of-control crash course for disaster. Like any good story, Breaking Bad has a beginning, a middle, and an end. The long-anticipated yet dreaded end will come this summer, in one of the most anticipated tv events of the year. Breaking Bad is the best tv show on today, and possible one of the best of all time.
Breaking is currently the best tv show and deserves all the awards and recognition. The shows is gripping, addictive and bold the way it portrays is just fantastic. There is never a dull moment in the show and even the filler episodes are better than most of other shows out their. Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul are amazing in this show and the direction is fantastic.
Breaking Bad could possibly be the greatest show on television. Gilligan's ability to make me question my own moral beliefs is breathtaking. I have learned more about myself and what I believe in than I have in my 23 years as an active Christian. Breaking Bad is my religion.
I'd advise any newcomers to ignore most of the recents posts in here. It's inconceivable anyone with the tiniest little smear of taste anywhere in their body wouldn't have this in the top five shows of all time, and if you really know what's up, you know it's #1 all time, by a fairly wide margin.
The first two season were great. They had great writing (sometimes...), great acting and directing. Than the other three were horrible, with a boring and stupid writing, a great directing (ok), and very very very boring acting. Bryan Cranston, you're a great actor, but please, don't do for 5 years your macho-shitty-face. Just, please, come back to the old Walter with human expressions, not just the angry expression for 3 years! 3 YEARS!!! Stop!!
However this is a completely useless TV show, cold as a rock, it doesn't give you any emotion. Don't watch it.
