All 13 episodes from the second season of the blackly comic American drama starring Bryan Cranston as Walter White, a high school chemistry teacher in the throes of a midlife crisis who discovers that he is dying from inoperable lung cancer. In an attempt to sort out his disastrous financial affairs Walter decides to turn to crime and enlists the help of a good-for-nothing ex-student to set himself up as a crystal meth dealer. The episodes are: 'Seven Thirty-Seven', 'Grilled', 'Bit By a Dead Bee', 'Down', 'Breakage', 'Peekaboo', 'Negro Y Azul', 'Better Call Saul', '4 Days Out', 'Over', 'Mandala', 'Phoenix' and 'ABQ'.
As Breaking Bad's first year concluded, chemistry teacher Walt (two-time Emmy-winner Bryan Cranston) and his meth-making partner, Jesse (Emmy-nominee Aaron Paul), hooked up with drug kingpin Tuco (Raymond Cruz), and the money started to roll in. They expected some degree of danger--but not a homicidal maniac. When DEA agent Hank (Dean Norris) starts to close in on Tuco, he kidnaps the duo, who eventually escape, but the experience creates a host of new complications, leaving Jesse temporarily homeless and driving a wedge between Walt and his pregnant wife, Skyler (Anna Gunn), and their 15-year-old son, Walt Jr. (R. J. Mitte). In his commentary, creator Vince Gilligan explains that the "chickens come home to roost" in season 2 as Walt's criminal activity catches up with him. In effect, he lives out the psychological version of The Fly, with his double life merging into one, such that he starts to become as ruthless as Tuco. Hank, meanwhile, gets a promotion that expands his jurisdiction to El Paso, while Skyler takes an accounting job that could cause her to "break bad" in season 3.
If this AMC hit lacked a sense of humor, it just might be too hard to take. Aside from Walt's incurable illness and Hank's post-traumatic stress disorder, there's a head crushing, a shooting, an explosion, and an overdose. Though Walt and Skyler get few humorous moments, Jesse, Hank, and ambulance-chasing attorney Saul (Mr. Show's Bob Odenkirk, an inspired addition) make the most of theirs. Jesse even gets a girlfriend (Krysten Ritter), who comes with a wary father (John de Lancie)--but there's still more shadow than light (not counting those panoramic desert shots). Strong stuff, but it's impossible to look away. Extensive extras include commentaries, deleted scenes, and featurettes on every episode. --Kathleen C. Fennessy --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

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.
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.

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.Read more ›
