Breaking Bad has all the elements of an entertaining, grimly funny and ultimately superb tv series thanks to a cast of well scripted and unforgettable characters from Hank, a DEA agent and the brother-in-law to our protagonist, Walt, a chemistry teacher diagnosed with cancer turned Meth cook to Gus, a secretive and smart Meth distributer that will keep you coming back for more with their strong performances. From the opening scenes of season one to the final scenes of season four, we watch Walter White’s ‘demise’ that sees his life and that of those around him changing with each decision and dilemma he is faced with, filling us, the viewer, with concern as to what will happen in the next episode thanks to an intelligently written story that is shot with great flair where each character’s story arc is developed with pin-point accuracy as the well thought out plot thickens, leaving us on all manner of cliff hangers. With Walt beginning to lose our sympathy as each season goes by with his ever growing arrogance, ambition and audaciousness, we, along with his wife, begin to question his actions which will culminate in the fifth and final season that is a must watch.
I might do an individual season review for this series because I enjoy it that much!
