Breaking Bad - Season 1 £8.99 @ Amazon & Play

No one would confuse the desperate dad Bryan Cranston plays in this character-driven drama with the fun-loving Hal from Malcolm in the Middle. In Breaking Bad, Walter White lives in the suburbs with his wife--and wears tighty-whiteys--but the similarities end there. During the pilot, the cash-strapped chemistry teacher finds out he has inoperable lung cancer. He and Skyler (Deadwood's Anna Gunn) have one son, Walter Jr. (R.J. Mitte), and a daughter on the way. With two years to get his affairs in order, Walter comes up with a wild plan: he and former student Jesse (Aaron Paul), a drug dealer, will open a meth lab.

In the hands of creator Vince Gilligan (The X-Files), Bad's first season plays like the improbable offspring of Weeds and The Shield. With nothing left to lose, the Albuquerque 50-year-old uses his death sentence as a catalyst to break every rule he's ever followed while keeping his family--including Skyler's radiologist sister, Marie (Betsy Brandt), and her DEA agent husband, Hank (Dean Norris)--out of the loop. Throughout these seven episodes, Walt takes on a hostage, a dead body, and a partner who likes to sample his own product. Based on the description alone, it shouldn't work as well as it does, except Gilligan and company keep the situations psychologically believable and Emmy winner Cranston makes Walt surprisingly sympathetic as he swings between compassion and self-interest. As he tells his students, "Chemistry is the study of change", a statement that applies equally well to the show, since Walt ends up in a very different place than where he began.

Great to see this coming down in price so that more people will buy and watch:thumbsup::thumbsup: Excellent show.
#2
Season 3 was awesome. Get watching!
#3
I like the sound of this.

Quick question for those that have already seen it, why does he decide to open a meth lab? Is the idea to make a load of money for his family before he dies or am I missing something?
#4
This is the best TV show of recent years, getting off to a flyer at the start of S1, with hardly a weak episode in all three seasons. Fascinating character developments, great storylines and beautiful cinematography. TV doesn't get much better than this.
#5
yes, fully recommend this fantastic show - only seen series 1 so far

He needs to give his family the financial support before his premature death, and fast.

This show is officially the best show on the air right now, Season 3 was powerful, well crafted and perfect. And it's like that all the way through the series.

Brilliant.
#8
Best thing on TV at the moment. Amazing series.
#9
Excellent series, I'd forgotten that the third had been aired. I'll be watching it tonight! I'm holding out for these on Bluray.

Heat added.

It's going to be agonising waiting for Season 4. Even longer wait than last time :-(

Determined to get my Dad to watch this, I reckon he'd love it.

One of the best tv series at the moment.

A word of warning: You have to start watching from the very beginning (series 1, episode 1), or you miss out!

Has series 3 been aired on UK TV?

Fully support the comments made supporting this show and I only started watching after MBeeching posted on here about how good it was. Do you remember hiding behind the sofa or cushion when seeing the Daleks or Cybermen on Dr Who as a kid? Well Breaking Bad gives you the same feeling as an adult. You want to watch but some of the scrapes Walt and Jesse get into are very scary and you find yourself saying "Nooooooo!" or "OMFG!" during every episode.

It really is brilliant TV and I look forward to S4.

Top class series, this and Californication are the best shows on air.
#17
Compelling viewing.

Season one is only 7 episodes though, two and three have 13.

Weeds too, if they get round to selling series 4. No idea what station it's shown on. Similar in tone to this show.

Season 3 has only finished in the US, expect it next year on FiveUS, at about 3am, never to be repeated, stupid channel, I had to catch it all online.

I beg to differ...:?

Season 3 has been a real mixed bag for me - some of the episodes remind me of Lost - just a complete waste of time and nothing but a newtork filler.

The episode with the fly just bored me to tears and I had to forward it to get through it as it was so drawn out and predictable :x

There have been some good moments but (for me) Season 3 has certainly been the low point of an excellent show that's been a favourite of mine for quite some time :thumbsup:

Bloody disappointing really....:oops:

I'll need to check out some reviews of this, as I feel I can't be alone :thinking:

I absolutely loved that episode. The long lingering shots and cinematography are the heart and soul of the programme.
Spending time with characters makes it all the more poignant.

I'm absolutely resolute that it should end on Season 4, despite the fact it has only amounted to 33 episodes thus far.

I do like the characters, however, it was just far too drawn out for me :oops:

Just watched the last episode tonight, it had its moment for sure but I really didn't find this season consistently hitting the spot....:thumbsup:
#24
Never seen this show, but purely judging by the comments above I have bought this DVD and am looking forward to seeing something new.... thanks !
#25
dude the fly episode was awesome!
#26
just half way through season 2, and i am hooked, what a great show!!
#27
Just watched series 1 + 2 last few days ,finished last night, thank god for FF button. When fatty got shot by that young kid on bike was one of the few realistic moments, the most unrealistic part is why walt puts up with jesse?? Trouble is that is most of the story.
