I think this whole show is the best thing since the Sopranos. Funny, sad, heartwrenching, disgusting, violent, incredibly poignant; the story of a good man going bad while you still like and sympathise with him. Characters with confused moral codes, trying to do the right thing in the light of their twisted and ambivalent ethics. Just like the Sopranos - murderers who are loving and loyal to their family and friends. Towering achievement. Don't watch it without seeing season 1 first. S2 is much darker than season 1, fewer belly laughs, but still absolutely the best thing. I watched it all over again straight after the first viewing, simply because there isn't anything else I want to see more than this. Now I'm suffering waiting for season 3!

Season 2 follows directly on from season 1. There's no overlap. The action picks up immediately and you're thrown straight back into the world of science teacher Walter White in his battle against cancer and his plunge into the murky world of drugs. I'd recommend you watch season 1 first. It sets the scene for what's to come and so much has happened to Walt, and his family, you might struggle to make sense of it if you don't watch the series in the proper order.

One thing's for sure; it's certainly ramped up in terms of action and violence and it's strong stuff. What makes it acceptable is the brilliant story that's unfolding throughout and the highly believable characters you just can't help bonding with. For that it's similar to the Sopranos but; Breaking Bad is in a whole other league. What I particularly enjoy is the wicked, dark humour flying around and the ongoing growth of the lead characters. The relationship between Walter White, Bryan Cranston, and his hapless, addict sidekick Jesse, Aaron Paul, is brilliantly worked into the plot. Extremely good TV.

Breaking Bad - Season 2 - contains all 13 episodes on 4 discs and runs for approx. 9 hours and 50 minutes.

Dark, tragic and funny. There are not many programmes to match this program, it's far better than most movies let alone tv programmes. Some of the scenes, particularly in series 3 are outstanding and rank as ones that will stay memorable for some time.

Series 2 portrays the further drawing of the principle characters into a dark, dark world and the moral and practical decisions they are forced to make in order to protect and grow their drug business (started with the best of intentions).

This is a tv series that has yet to catch on mainstream but deserves all the success of The Sopranos, The Wire etc.

Brilliantly cast, acted, written and filmed. Understated and always, always totally engaging.

If you only watch one new series this year - this should be it. Can't recommend it enough.

Walt's cancer treatment is reaching a crucial point and he needs more money. What solution is there but to up his meth production, take control of distribution and go up against the Mexican mob?

I try to avoid gushing, but it's hard not to get a bit Academy-Awards-Acceptance-Speech about this series. Honestly though, Breaking Bad is quite possibly the best thing to have come out of US TV in years. Beautiful writing, exquisite photography and award-winning acting, all joined up to make a witty and profoundly compelling darkly comic drama series.

Series 2 takes over from S1 and goes to the next level making it hard to see how subsequent seasons can hope to imprpove (I understand that they do, however). OK there are possibly more characters each with their own story-arcs to follow than might be considered optimal and the subject material itself is challenging. However, the underlying humour* keeps it from getting too bleak and it's great not to have to sit through the saccharine laden faux-morality that is more traditionally extruded from the US TV entertainment-mill. True enough, the "actions have unintended consequences" cliche runs through every part of the series and is woven from a heavy thread, but part of the fun of it is seeing just how far Walt's decisions reach.

As with Season 1, S2 really is unputdownable stuff; every episode is a tantalising cliffhanger. Buy it. Watch it. Keep it.

* Bob Odenkirk's bent lawyer is a wonderful addition to the cast, larger than life and stereotyped as hell. Great fun.

"Look, you remember Emilio? This dude got Emilio off, like, twice. Both times they had him dead to rights, yo, and then poof. Dude's like Houdini. Seriously, when the going gets tough, you don't want a criminal lawyer. Alright, you want a //criminal// lawyer. You know what I'm saying?"

I loved series one of Breaking Bad, it was undoubtedly the best boxed set I have watched this year. The only downside was that 7 episodes just weren't enough so I was pleased to find that series 2 was also available to buy.

Series 2 continues the story of Walt (played by Bryan Cranston), a middle class, law abiding teacher who has been diagnosed with terminal lung cancer at the age of 50. His wife, Skylar is on the verge of giving birth to a new baby and his teenage son, Walt Jnr, who suffers from cerebral palsy, trying to establish his own identity whilst living in a family on the verge of a major melt-down.

During series 1, Walt in an effort to fund his medical treatment and to leave his family with enough money to live after his demise teams up with Jessie (Dean Norris), one of his former students. Together they set up a meth lab and cook the best meth anyone has ever seen on the market. But things didn't go quite according to plan.

Series two continues on directly from the end of the first series with the same cast of characters. The series is more hard hitting with even more black humour than the first. I can never look at a turtle in quite the same way again!

Walt tries so hard to do the right thing but things just keep going wrong and as soon as he makes some cash he seems, through no fault of his own, to lose a larger amount. And all the time Jesse, despite his best intentions, seems like the colleague from hell - mistakes seem to be his second name.

This series was a lot more gritty and emotional than the first one. I so wanted Walt to tell the truth when it really mattered. And I cried when a particular event took away the most important thing in Jesse's life.
