Television that surprises

by Scottie on 3/26/2009

Breaking Bad is funny, shocking, touching, and always surprising. Even the really bad guys (e.g., drug-dealer kingpin Tuco) are complex. Bryan Cranston (as Mr. White) is amazing. I enjoy White's relationship with his partner in crime, Jesse (played by Aaron Paul), who is likeable, admirable, and comically inept all at the same time. Ingenious plotting. In spite of the wacko premise (high-school chemistry teacher cooking meth on the side), it all seems completely plausible. Excellent TV. Among my top ten, for sure. Read More

Product Overview

Breaking Bad follows protagonist Walter White (Bryan Cranston), a chemistry teacher who lives in New Mexico with his wife (Anna Gunn) and teenage son (RJ Mitte) who has cerebral palsy. White is diagnosed with Stage III cancer and given a prognosis of two years left to live. With a new sense of fearlessness based on his medical prognosis, and a desire to secure his family's financial security, White chooses to enter a dangerous world of drugs and crime and ascends to power in this world. The series explores how a fatal diagnosis such as White's releases a typical man from the daily concerns and constraints of normal society and follows his transformation from mild family man to a kingpin of the drug trade.

This two disc collection includes all seven episodes from The Complete First Season of Breaking Bad!

Editors Note
Note To "break bad," as says the old colloquialism from the American South, is to go so wrong it's almost impossible to do what's right. Walter White is breaking bad. Recently diagnosed with Type III lung cancer, raising a son with cerebral palsy, and in need of a way to support his family, Walter uses his skills to transform himself from nebbishy high-school chemistry teacher to neophyte crystal-meth cook in the blink of an eye. Things become problematic when, not long after Walter and his former student Jesse put together a lucrative cooking operation, the two of them of are assaulted by a pair of drug dealers who accuse Walter of being affiliated with the DEA. But that?s just the beginning of his problems: he soon has a dead body on his hands and has yet to even reveal his cancer to his loving wife. As the tragicomic Walter White, Bryan Cranston (MALCOLM IN THE MIDDLE, SEINFELD) deviates from his usual fare to deliver a harrowing, Emmy-winning performance in this pitch-black comedy series from the AMC Network. Included in this box set are all seven episodes from the critically acclaimed first season of BREAKING BAD.
