Blue-meth on Blu-ray,
This review is from: Breaking Bad: The Complete Series [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
So , this was voted in America as the greatest TV show ever made... Well , that's down to individual taste I suppose , but I do have to say this is the best thing I've seen in a very long while.
This being shown only on Netflix , I never got to see it when originally broadcast and was surprised to learn that this has been going since 2008 , so I'm a relative newcomer watching all 5 seasons in a couple of huge marathons throughout November/December of last year... This is not a show where you can just watch one episode in a sitting !
I'm glad that a spin off series of Saul Goodman (derived from the words "Its all good man") along with hit man Mike (Jonathan Banks) will be available come this November under the title "Better call Saul" as they're some of my favourite characters throughout the show , although NOTHING beats the wrinkled , gurning grimace on the face of wheelchair bound Tio Salamanca (played by the brilliant Mark Margolis) on his final appearance...Now THATS a face!!!!
At £70 this is quite expensive for a TV show with only 5 seasons and I'm sure it won't be too long before this drops dramatically in price , but its a refreshing change that they haven't just unnecessarily dragged out this show like they do with so many others that go up to 9 or 10 seasons as this really does end at the perfect time.
All in all this really is one box set you must own.
Is this the best TV show ever ?...Pretty close!
