MGM are noted for making slushy cheesy films filled with unbelievable stories of rich man meets poor girl; falls in love; and the woman gets to live a life of luxury. Not so here - MGM have broken the mould - for what you have in a gritty 'tell life as it really is' story – the sort favoured by Warner Brothers.

Here is a ‘story well told’ that is filled with twists and turns that will have you on the edge of your seat - a story that is a 'black comedy' full of pathos, juxtapositions, intrigue, murder, and much much more as it examines the ‘dark’ side of ‘the human condition’.

These are not two-dimensional characters without any depth that one encounters in many many films and TV series - these characters are real and 'true to life. All of the characters are seriously flawed; all of the characters are 'two-faced'; not one of them is 'nice' - and every character has their own 'hidden agenda' - and while you find that you cannot 'warm' to any of them, these sleazy double-dealing, double-crossing characters will speak VOLUMES to you – and make you question YOUR integrity.

All things must come to an end – but – this amazing series has a VERY fascinating ending to what is a truly wonderful cinematic epic of gigantic proportions

And the clever bit – you are ADDICTED – but there isn’t any more – now what?

I won't go into a long analysis as that's been done by others - suffice to say that despite the sordid theme and extreme violence, I've never enjoyed a TV series as much. Well-written, inventive (but with a little undercurrent of dark humour), the characters are all fully-rounded and have their own little back-stories - no cardboard cut-outs here. Full marks also for the lack of swear words - I only counted two real obscenities, one written, one spoken - all the more effective for that. Many TV series and films are full of swearing to their detriment (they still haven't got over the novelty of uncensored language on screen). If you had to suspend disbelief occasionally, well that's fine. The only drawback was, as I neared the end, I hated starting a new episode, because I knew it would be finished all too soon and will probably never be matched...but I'll be watching avidly to see what Vince Gilligan comes up with next!

Originally bought the steel box Bluray to this &, I kid you not, every series had a faulty disc. When back to DVD &, hey presto, BRILLIANT!. Great series. Great characters. Honestly, you'll be rooting for everyone. Such a good show. You will not be disappointed.

The Whole of the Breaking Bad Series are very good and it is great to see how the actors evole from the start to the finish of the Series, Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul are brilliant in the leads for these roles and they have a great supporting cast.having watched all season I cant wait to see what happens in the spin off Series

Love this series, the last series to keep my family hooked was the West Wing and to think I had never heard about this series until some Hollywood actor in an interview said he was looking forward to chilling out for the weekend by watching Breaking Bad, that sold it for me.
