Breaking Bad – Any Good ?
Yep, stick with it. Very good indeed. About to watch S4 E14. Sh1t is about to go down yo!
S5 E1-8 already lined up. S5 E8 onwards released on DVD anytime now.
Someone bought the missus S1 on DVD for her birthday in September and we’ve been working our way through 2 episodes a night.
Once finished we’ll be back to watching The Wire S3.Posted 4 years agorichmtbSubscriber
I loved Breaking Bad really top drawer and unlike a lot of all series that had peaks and troughs it was great all the way through and is topped off with a brilliant conclusion
I’ve also been watching the Wire , first season was excellent I can see what all the fuss is about. Second season I’m not feeling the love for yet.
Also check out lesser known series called Braking Bad its about a guy who fits Superstar pads to his Avid brakesPosted 4 years agoarrpeeMember
It’s very good indeed. Great writing and performances. Also really nicely shot. The pace is fairly similar to The Wire and The Sopranos. I wouldn’t call it slow at all. ‘Stately’ or ‘unhurried’ would be more accurate, although it’s punctuated by some great action sequences (Hank in the mall car park anyone?).
One thing all three have in common is subtlety. The writers know you don’t need a plot synopsis every five minutes.Posted 4 years agoCougarSubscriber
Also really nicely shot.
I’m glad you said that; there’s some really creative camera work in Breaking Bad. It’s subtle, I only really started paying attention to it relatively later on when I caught a couple of the ‘behind the scenes’ documentaries but it’s worth looking out for. Throughout they strive for ‘inside the beaker’ type shots and it’s wonderous.Posted 4 years agoMrSmithMember
best thing on the telly since the red riding trilogy.Posted 4 years ago
it gets 99% from me, dropped 1% for the episode with the fly in the lab which annoyed me a bit(not a spoiler)
had to ration the episodes or would have rattled through it.
as above well crafted, some great characters and jaw dropping moments.
will probably re-watch in a year or so.stilltortoiseSubscriber
Watch until Season 3, if your not hooked by then theres something seriously wrong with you.
That’s quite a telly watching commitment to make on the off chance you still might not be hooked 😆
FWIW I tried watching it a year or two back and struggled to get into it. Maybe I should try again…Posted 4 years agoEcky-ThumpMember
Just finished ’em with final two episodes last night.
Best thing for me is how the characters develop and change. Subtle evolution throughout, starting with something you can relate to and eventually turning into… well you’ll have to watch and see.
What to watch next though?Posted 4 years ago
As I’ve only seen series 3 of The Killing, I think I’ll have to go back and try the previous two series.
