Breaking Bad. Holy cow — this may be the best series on TV right now.
My wife and I have been watching episodes in batches through NetFlix via Roku.
Seasons One and Two are very good. But beginning with Season Three, the show easily surpassed The Sopranos in terms of both quality and consistency. And Season Four had me shouting and cheering out loud at times (I’m surprised my neighbors didn’t rush over to see what the ruckus was about).
The scripts are amazing — and getting better. The acting deserves all the many awards it has received — and more. Top notch and appropriate cinematography and production design as well.
If you haven’t watched this series, start. If you have but dropped out before Season Three, give it another shot.
I haven’t watched these on DVD yet. My pal Sam brought a couple of sets over. Each one has about 13 hours in extras! I can’t wait to sample the commentaries and behind the scenes stuff.
My favorite characters are Gus and Mike, BTW.
We are living in a new Golden Age of Television.
