Breaking Bad: Season 1 [DVD] [2008] [2009]

5.0 out of 5 stars Seriously Good!, 21 July 2010
As an English person, it's normal to be presented with high quality American Television. Whether it be the action of 24, or the profanity-laced drama of Sopranoes, as a Brit you realise most of the top-end TV is being made across the Atlantic. Breaking Bad is no exception. I was pretty much hooked from episode one, and it did it all without high-octane action, mindless violence, expletives or gratuitous sex - and that's not to say Breaking Bad doesn't have those things, it just has them as part of a gripping, extremely well plotted story.

Firstly, there is nothing I can write about The Dark Knight that hasn't already been said. Regardless of how you like your Batman movies, it cannot be denied that The Dark Knight is a brilliant and multi-layered complex film, with one of the best acting performances of the last 10 years in Heath Ledger.

So, yes, the film is incredible, in every aspect of the word. My only criticism of the film would be that Batman's voice is a little too gruff (a minor criticism, yes, that is how great the movie is!).

However, for a film of this size and epic scale, and importance to recent cinema, you would expect the second DVD disc to contain a wealth of extras. Well, it doesn't… Read more
