11 year old children being used as 'mules' to distribute drugs because they will get off lightly if caught and are expendable. This status quo is used all over the world to move illegal products by the bad guys. Breaking Bad has two 'heroes' who are also bad, Walt and Jesse, but there are levels of criminality and our guys don't step over that line (whenever possible). So when two drug dealers murder a young boy Walt and Jesse kill the drug dealers----- it's a simple rationale that keeps this show moving sympathetically with its audience.
Jesse holds back from selling the crystal meth to a mother of an equally young boy --- we stay on his side not because he's a good man but because he's dug deep to do the right thing.
The writing of the series is never totally clear and transparent, only shrouded in shades of grey.
I couldn't believe this series could get stronger but I was wrong. Even the two muppet sisters, Skyler and Marie, who are as charismatic as a Hillary Blinds commercial, are showing some gumption, motivation and class and deservedly remain in the series.
English subtitles and plenty of extras----- the makers know what some fans want.
Tip: it's cheaper to buy the set of Seasons 1-4 than it is to buy them individually. ENJOY!
Breaking Bad is unrelentingly compelling viewing. Having missed the series entirely on TV, I'm now compulsively buying the DVDs to catch up. I thought I might be able to string out the purchases until Christmas, but I suspect that I'll just buy the remaining season box sets in one go now - it's that good.
The writing is witty and intelligent and shot through with moral dilemmas that refuse to let the viewer off with any easy answers. Every episode seems to end on a mini cliffhanger of some sort and every season (so far) ends on a big one. As a consequence, this innovative drama doesn't coddle you, but drags you along by the nose from episode to episode without let up.
As with previous seasons, the cinematography is sumptuous. The beautifully filmed desert shots give the series a great sense of place and you can almost feel the sweat breaking out between your shoulder-blades. These contrast aptly with the equally good looking scenes shot in sterile, vaguely synthetic-looking suburban Albuquerque and all the locations are tied together by that richly Polaroid-blue sky.
The acting is great and the eclectic dramatis personae hangs together beautifully. Cranston, of course, earns his awards but Anna Gunn starts to come into her own in this season as her relationship with Walter and her own values begin to be challenged. Aaron Paul's Jesse takes a bit of a back seat, but Dean Norris' burly, loudmouthed DEA cop develops a depth beyond his original role in S1 & 2 as a comic foil. THAT role is taken over by Bob Odenkirk's criminally criminal lawyer, Saul Goodman. He's a lot of fun and brings some badly needed laughs to this dark dark drama. Saul counterpoints perfectly with Giancarlo Esposito's tightly controlled meth dealing, fried-chicken-king and, in turn, Gus is a perfect antithesis to his predecessor in crime, Tuco Salamanca.
So BB S3 is very much a matter of contrasts - the characters, the locations, the motivations and behaviours - and the blurring of distinction between the various extremes. BB is a real gem of a series and Season 3 carries the baton with distinction. Very highly recommended.
Mike: (On the phone to Walt) Walter. You see us?
Walt: Yeah. I see you.
Mike: Exit your vehicle and start walking toward us.
Walt: And then what? I'm going to need some kind of assurance.
Mike: I assure you I can kill you from way over here if it makes you feel any better.
Season 3 is a stunner, right from that bizarre, creepy opening sequence. Throughout is a deliberate move into even darker territory, challenges ever mounting, so much guaranteed to unsettle - views at an angle, sounds emphasized, frequent silences unnerving.
He no mean director either, brilliant Bryan Cranston heads the excellent cast - all doing full justice to inventive scripts that mercilessly tease. Viewers are kept on their toes, wondering each episode how certain situations can be resolved - so often the outcome totally unexpected.
13 episodes of around 50 minutes. All three discs with bonuses well worth investigating. Commentaries. Backgrounds to each episode. Many extra features. Learn the amazing truth about that pizza on the roof. Check out that truly horrendous hit and run. Meet the Mexican hit brothers, so chilling as they silently and relentlessly home in on their targets - in real life they a likeable couple, chatty and fun.
In every respect, this series continues audaciously to grip. In short, a triumph.
In all the discs that I have received certainly in series 3 and 4 which include increasing amounts in Spanish, the subtitles appear only very rarely for the odd line here and there. As theses include sometimes large chunks of dialogue, it is almost impossible to follow the thread unless you speak Spanish! I can't find a way to complain on my lovelfilm account other than to say that the disc is faulty but not why! Spoils the viewing of a great show.
Breaking Bad is up there with the best drama, mainly because the characters are so believable despite being in absurd situations. It's good to see one of the lead actors doing a great job in a major Hollywood film, too. (watch "Drive" and you'll see what I mean).
This series also contains the best "pizza on the garage roof" sequence that I've ever seen.
the chemistry (pardon the pun) between jesse and walt (the main characters) played by aaron paul and bryan cranston is perfect and my advice is to buy the whole series because after 1 episode i was hooked!
all about the path we take.
MUSIC; appropriate and strategically used,
CINEMATOGRAPHY; creative, a treat on the eye,
ACTING; pushed to the max,these actors ARE the characters, (you don't look at Cranston and see the guy from "Malcom")
PACE; also extremely appropriate, right on the money (The fly and Previous 4 days out show simple and effective build surrounding an insurmountable obstical)
TENSION; builds in inspiringly organic ways,
WRITING; vision of the writers is top level who knows exactly what the story needs, (substitutes ridiculous Michael Bay techniques; explosions, one liners, for unrelenting realism). and many more. Watch-ability factor is genuine magic. More addictive than the pure blue drug itself.
The balance of drama and dark humour is measured to the milligram. every other drama show should look up to and show respect for this genius story making and maybe even learn something.
In all seriousness, unquestionably one of the best shows in the history of television.
5/5, even, 100/100, Hell; 1'000'000'000 out of 1'000'000'000
Watch it now.
PS unfortunate marketing rip-off divides the final season into two 8-episode "seasons", each costing the same as a full 13-episode season.
But it's so good I almost didn’t mind.
In what I believe is a 'golden age' in US TV drama (mostly thanks to AMC & HBO), this is at the very top of my list.
Even if you have seen it like myself, buy the DVD and show your support for the show! (We may even get to see season 5 on DVD at a reasonable date if sales are strong enough!)
