I was proved wrong,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Breaking Bad: The Complete Series [DVD] (DVD)
I vivdly remember about half way through season three turning to my fiancee and asking 'How do you think this compares to 'The Wire?'. She replied 'Favourably' and I answered 'No way, this is nowhere near as good, not even close'. As usual, she was right and I was wrong.
I won't give away any spoilers here but there were times when I thought it was slow with not much happening. It was about half way through season four that I finally realised that I was completely hooked and started to appreciate the early episodes that I had pretty much dismissed. There are reasons behind the change of pace and it took me a while to get it but if you are reading this review and thinking the same as I originally thought then please stick with it, trust me it is worth it.
This is Bryan Cranston's finest hour and he has created a TV legend in Walter White. He doesn't miss a beat here and his performance is terrific. Many other parts are played to perfection and 'Breaking Bad' is quite simply fantastic TV. The ending? Absolutely spot on as far as we were concerned.
