Too slow moving. Main character was weak. Somewhat silly. Fast forwarded through it, due to boredom. It didn't improve. Could spend my time watching other videos.
I watched 2 episodes’ and was hooked. Great character development, wonderful actors/actresses and the story lines ebb and flow just enough to keep you waiting for the next episode. Possibly one of the best series developed for TV that I can recall.
One man's mission to secure his family's future once he's diagnosed with cancer.
I tried to get into the show when it was originally broadcast but for some odd reason I found it depressing. A male friend of mine encouraged me to stick with it and go back and watch a couple of episodes and then decide. He was right! It's amazing. High action, great script and acting, and very interesting moral dilemma. Well done. I'm hooked and on to season two.
I have seen many, if not most of the "top ten" series of all time. Breaking Bad... in my opinion, is , by far the best TV series ever produced, thus far. To those just starting Season 1.... enjoy !!
Finally got around to starting this highly rated series, and it *is* very addictive. Rather depressing but addictive. The cast is excellent. FIVE STARS.
Good season 1, if you can call 7 episodes a season.
My only complaint is that the show is one of those that try to blend comedy with serious drama. Mostly it's serious, but every so often there's some comic scene inserted. Would be better if it was only serious.
Brilliant story twists, nail biting suspense and some dark humor. We are totally hooked and binging on the series. Do yourself a favor and place a hold or check out the next series in line at the same time. We are now on the 4th series and can't wait to pick it up.
I love this, plain and simple. Nuff said?
Cannot wait to see Season Two!!
I highly recommend watching this (for Mature viewers only).
A terrific start to an excellent series. The story begins innocently and then by the end of season one you start to see Walter White transforming, but one cannot imagine how much he transforms as the series goes on. Season One hooks you in, so be sure to have seasons 2-6 on hand because you will want to binge watch this awesome series!!
Bravo to the writers and actors on this urban legend crime/family drama that kept me on the edge of my couch most of the time. Love the chemistry lessons as well. (For cc in English, connect to TV via AV port instead of HDMI but will loose a bit of resolution. Also available via Netflix.)
Is there anything more alarming and entertaining than an intelligent but over-the-top-desperate dude making a lot of wrong choices? Dark but funny--and not like anything else.
I couldn't get into it - I tried, just too many disasters in this guys life.
A totally addictive series - yes, the subject matter is disturbing but what a story, what fine acting!
An amazing series! The subject matter -- cancer and illegal drugs -- is about as dark as it gets, yet this show is riveting entertainment with plenty of hilarious black humor. Bryan Cranston is truly one of the best actors working today -- don't miss his bravura performance.
The first season of Breaking Bad is an excellent blend of drama and comedy. Walter is a high school chemistry teacher that learns he has inoperable lung cancer. With a wife, physically challanged son and baby girl on the way Walter is obviously concerned about his family's financial future. Walter does a ride along on a drug bust with his brother-in-law who is a DEA agent. During the raid Walter recognizes Jesse, a former student, who gets away during the raid. Walter realizes that cooking meth can make one lots of money so he sets up a partnership with Jesse. There's a big learning curve for Walter and Jesse as they get their meth operation rolling. Sometimes sad, sometimes hilarious, Breaking Bad is great entertainment.
This show is amazing. Dramatic and comedic, perfect blend of the two. Keeps you suspended throughout the whole season, not letting you get bored.
One of the best seasons of TV of any show I've ever seen. This has everything. Fantastic acting, fast moving plot, relatable characters, humor, and an overall story that is dark but gripping. This is the story of a man driven to desperation to look after his family. Can't wait to watch the rest of the seasons.
Seriously an amazing show. Takes characters on difficult paths and sees them all the way through.
10 of 10 stars, especially if you enjoy Weeds, the Wire and the Riches series.
