3.0 out of 5 stars Marketing Ploy, 1 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Breaking Bad - Season 5* [DVD + UV Copy] (DVD)
The series has been excellent, and the content was up to usual standard. However, the rating was given for the deliberate and cynical build up to this release which implied early on that this was the complete series 5, probably costing the same as previous
full series! I found out after purchase that the second part has not yet been shown (couldn't find any mention of that before this
part 1 release)! It's not an accident - the whole thing was a con, supported by the fact that the packaging does not mention anywhere that this is PART 1. (other TV series have done this in the past). No doubt when Part 2 is complete, a full DVD of the entire 5th series will be released, and we will all have to pay up a second time to see the first part. Pure cynical marketing - not
impressed!!

I believe you have stated nothing less than the whole truth here. I agree with you wholeheartedly.

Disgrace! Reading this you can fully understand why some people might want to download this for free illegally. Those same people may have been more than willing to buy a true copy if had not been for these questionable marketing practices that can leave a very bad taste in the mouth
