I bought this boxed set almost by accident, I was looking for the next series of another tale which turned out to be not available, but I followed Amazon's suggestion " Those who bought this DVD also bought......." Thank you Amazon, my wife and I watched series one and became addicted. Apart from the fascinating story, the acting is superb and the tension rarely, if ever, lets up. Sometimes long series tires or becomes stale, not this one, seeing the characters develop and become tainted by what they are doing is an object lesson in itself. Vince Gilligan who wrote the story must have a very fertile imagination. Several of our friends and watched it and like us think it a must.
